I made this costume for my 9 year old Colin. It's loosely based on several things:

a-the Grim Reaper
b-A Wendigo
c-A Witch Doctor

In the end I think it fit more of a Mini Grim Reaper than anything else.  It also bares a strange resemblance to the creature from the movie The Village.
It was received well at most Trick or Treating events but was given dirty looks and comments at a Chuch based "trunk or treat"-so while that pissed me off I guess you could say it showed the costumes effectiveness Cheesy Wink

Thanks for looking:)

That is awesome.  Great job.  And the church thing, I wouldn't even give it a second thought...narrow minded people are not worth the trouble of thinking about them!  It looks great though, I bet he was pretty happy to wear it around!

Woah!  That's a pretty creepy costume.  It would have scared the poop out of me when I was a little kid.  It looks really great.

Holy crap! That is quite an awesome costume- especially for a kid! Smiley I was so dissapointed this year with the neighborhood kids' costumes - I would have totally given all the candy to your kid! Smiley

Great job with all of those neat trinkets and details, it really makes the costume orignial and dynamic!

Pretty creepy, but in a good way, better than most of the kids costumes today.

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone.
uknowuluvit-no peg leg Smiley I think what you are seeing is by the front left leg-it was a row of skeleton heads that's kinda touching the ground.

I forgot to mention that the costume was made entirely of thrifted clothes and all the add ons were bought at the Dollar store-so the whole costume (minus the staff) cost about $10.
Colin and his dad bought the staff thingie at a Halloween costume shop for $9 and that was the basis for the rest of the costume.

My little brother would have loved a costume like that when he was 9!  He used to waft around in cloaks being the Red Death and things like that (sometimes regardless of whether it was Halloween or not).  Love it  Cheesy
