Outfit:

The Skull Trooper wears an all-black military outfit, including a tactical vest, tactical pants and combat boots. A white skeleton shape is painted over the entire outfit to give him the look of a walking skeleton in the darkness of the night.

To put this costume together you will need to find a matching pair of black tactical pants, some black combat boots, black shin guards and tactical gloves. You can use a black and white skeleton body suit underneath this garb to get the right base. Now use some white fabric paint to add the rest of the skeletal elements to the outfit. Simple and fun!

You can purchase custom dog tags and a black looping scarf online or at a military supply store. As for the sickle, you can purchase a sickle prop at a halloween store or try to make your own version using foam, wood or recycled materials.
