Skeleton Theme Costume – Spooky Fun On The Cheap


In the year 1929, Disney released a short cartoon called a “Silly Symphony” that was referred to as “The Skeleton Dance”. It starts out with a skeleton seemingly jumping from a grave in what appears to be a fall scene for Halloween. Within a minute or so, the skeleton multiplies and all of them start to perform a silly dance. Since the release of this short cartoon, many individuals have found the skeleton theme costume to be highly appealing.

In recent years, the costume has transformed from the traditional skeleton to the skeleton that is displayed on the ever-popular game, “Minecraft”. However, there are many that still prefer the traditional skeleton to the pixel generated skeleton. Numerous pictures that will provide you with skelly costume ideas can be found here.

After browsing my selection of photos, have you decided on how to use your creative flair to create your very own costume? You may choose to dress in all black and just paint your face to look like a skeleton, or you may choose to wear a skeleton mask and paint bones on your body. You may opt for a skeleton that is white or one that glows in the dark – it is all up to you and your personal preference.

Below, I'm providing you with skeleton theme costume creating how-tos that looks like the skeletons in the popular game, “Minecraft”. This is a creative and innovative spin on the traditional skeleton that is considered to be more modern by those that enjoy the look and feel of the bone-displaying costumes for dress up events:

Instructions for a Basic Minecraft Skeleton Costume


Items Needed:
  • Black Body Suit
  • Gray Acrylic Paint
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Black Foam Brush
  • Cardboard Box for the Head
  • Black Shoes
  • Brown Arrow

Step 1: Get a cardboard box that will fit over the head. You must paint this box gray. Once the paint is dry, you may then create the pixel eyes and mouth by using the black paint.

Step 2: While the head piece is drying, take a foam brush and create a skeleton pixel design on the front of the black body suit with the gray acrylic paint and allow the costume to dry.

Step 3: Place the body suit on the body, the cardboard box on the head, and the shoes on your feet. Add the brown arrow and you are officially a Minecraft skeleton!

The instructions we have listed for creating a Minecraft skeleton costume, along with all the different photographs show you many innovative skeleton costumes.
