other supernatural creature is more associated with death than the Grim
Reaper. Whether its a mythical creature or a real entity, the Grim Reaper is the
ultimate personification of death itself.
Whether this mysterious being actually takes life from the living or simply arrives
on the scene to escort departing souls to the other side is unknown,
either way its still a frightening prospect that you might encounter him.
Visually, this foreboding figure is best
known for having a skeleton like body that carries a large scythe
(pronounced "sigh-the") or
sometimes a sickle, and always wears a pitch black hooded robe with all but his
skeletal face and hands shrouded inside.
Reaper Robe Costume
A Grim Reaper costume is usually made up from just four elements, a
skeleton mask, black hooded robe, skeleton gloves and either a scythe or
sickle. The Grim Reaper costume shown to the right has a long, black
hooded robe with elongated sleeves. Just add a skeleton mask and you can
become the Grim Reaper for Halloween night.
If you don't want to wear a mask, you can also use makeup to create a
skeleton look on your face using just white and black face paint. By the
way, just because the Grim Reaper is usually thought of as being
male doesn't mean that the gals can't assume the role of death.
Head Grim Reaper Costume
Here's a new Grim Reaper costume for Halloween 2011! The Bobble Head
Grim Reaper really stands out in a crowd with its oversized foam head
and big bobbling eyes! The head measures approximately fourteen inches
long by six inches deep.
This great costume set also includes a full
black robe with long draped sleeves, and oversized hood with collar,
black gloves and a hanging waist belt. The oversized, giant head has
bobble eyes and an interior elastic head support.
Reaper Costume Accessories
Skeleton Gloves Glow in the Dark Skeleton Gloves are adult black cotton
gloves with latex skeleton fingers that glow in the dark. They go well
with any Grim Reaper Costume or a Skeleton Costume.
Lastly, a sickle will be the accessory to carry. The unique idea of this
4-piece set is that is has the silver sickle in a hard plastic. The best
part is that is comes with 3 different size handles.
