LoveCharles 's Thoughts:

This is it! I spent hours and hours making this thing but I have always wanted to be a skeleton so it was worth it. Buying costumes is just not part of my halloween tradition so I found this black body suit at the thrift store and I cut all the bones out of felt and stitched them on. It ended up costing me around 7 dollars for all supplies, and only took 7 hours to sew all the bones on hahaha. But I am proud to say it’s entirely handmade.
Anyway, have a happy halloween everyone! Thanks for checking out my costume.

This is so cool :) If it were me, I'd have added some creepy face paints to complete the skeleton look <3

You can make one! Other than being time consuming you just need to cut out shapes and sew them on. Thank you for your support!
