When it comes to Halloween, sometimes it’s fun to stick to traditional spooky costumes. Sure, trendy ideas based on TV shows can be fun, but costumes like witches, ghosts, and skeletons never go out of style. Plus, they take some of the stress out of your Halloween costume planning.
Take the classic skeleton. It doesn’t get any scarier, plus you can take any costume to the next level by adding a skeleton layer. Skeleton Princess? naturally. Skeleton cowboy? definitely. You found the idea. Now while you can do everything DIY on this project (think black leggings, a T-shirt, and a roll of duct tape), we’d prefer to keep it a little simpler and start with a store-bought pair. skeleton pajamas. It’s affordable, convenient and will help keep you safe before Halloween. With this basic start, you can add any fun elements you want to a children’s, men’s or women’s costume. From there, use your imagination, or keep reading for one of our fun ideas.
Skeleton face paint
Use this basic face paint idea as the basis for any skeleton costume. Or, if you have a tween or teen who isn’t into the whole fashion idea, this could be his whole look. All you need is some face paint. Start with a white base on the entire face, then outline the eyes with black. Add some simple black lines and cracks around the mouth and elsewhere on the face.

skeleton girl costume
Add a feminine touch to a skeleton outfit with this fun look. It works just as well for children as it does for adults. You probably have a skirt in your closet that will work. Black combat boots give it an edge.
skeleton costume shirt
We love this simple and fun idea for a skeleton costume. Start with a black or white shirt, draw shapes on it to imitate a rib cage, and then cut it out using sharp fabric scissors. Don’t worry about perfection here. Layer it over the opposite-colored shirt to complete the effect and finish with black and white face paint.
Could you choose just one outfit? Not a problem. Pair the skeleton costume with any other motif for a fun look. In this case, the skeleton gets the ringmaster’s touch with a top hat and jacket. Wear the cap and sleeves with some red and gold ribbon.
