Grim Reaper Adult Costumes

Updated on September 8, 2014

Ghastly and horrific reaper of death costumes

I think one of the scariest costumes for Halloween, or really anytime, is the grim reaper. I mean, it is the harbinger of death. You may or may not be fearful of death but he is the scary entity that is coming to take your life. Ultimately I think that could be terrifying.

What I find terrifying is this otherworldy creature silently stalking its victims. There is no bartering with death. It is coming for you and will find you sooner or later. For some death is not terrifying but for many it is and these grim reaper costumes are indicative of the horror that it brings.

These costumes always show this black clad ghostly apparition that seemingly floats among the crowd in anonymity looking for a soul to reap. The black robe conceals any shape and the face is covered in a mask or sometimes completely blacked out.

Most of these costumes have pointy finger gloves and of course none are complete without the scythe.

If you want to make an impression at Halloween whether you are accompanying your children for trick-or-treating or going to a Halloween party, then you could really shake folks up with going as death. These are truly freaky and scary costumes.

Grave Reaper Adult Costume

Your imagination can make the Grim Reaper appear as most any fearsome entity. But typically the reaper is thought of as a...grim looking character in all black carrying a scythe wearing what looks to be a robe and hood. To make it even more scary some designers imagine the reaper as having a skull face. You get that look with this costume set.

I really don't think death has a face. But to make it terrifying for Halloween this skull mask does the job nicely. I do not think death talks but give it a face then it has the visual look of a creature that can talk. I like the blank look but I get that putting a skeletal mask can make the costume more eerie at Halloween parties. The no face black screen just looks really spooky.

This reaper costume comes with a black robe with large hood and extra long sleeves. A fearsome skull mask and skeleton finger and black belt are also included.

Grim Reaper Deluxe Adult Costume

When I think of the Grim Reaper I see a faceless ghastly creature in all black with pointy fingers. He doesn't move fast but just kind of glides around waiting to collect his soul. I think this visage is very creepy. And he doesn't need to talk. He won't be bargaining with you for your life. He is coming to collect. I love the faceless, all-black costume with, of course, the scythe.

This costume includes a long black tethered robe with a black hood. It features an attached fave cover that is black mesh. You can see out but they can't see in. Skeleton textured gloves complete the costume.

Winged Reaper Male Adult Costume

This costume set of a winged Grim Reaper is honestly very different than what I have ever thought about. I've never considered that the reaper would have wings. Perhaps the idea is that he is a fallen angel come to collect the souls of the unfortunate. Regardless, it is pretty eerie.

This costume set features a long black robe with a hood with cowl neck. It includes a rope belt, shawl, skeletal gloves and a really creepy skull mask. And, oh yes, it comes with the bone wings. Scare them to death!

Grim Reaper Scary Costume

The grim reaper is one of those characters that stalk your nightmares. Funny thing as fearsome as the reaper is you hardly ever see it in used in movies. I suppose the reason is that most reaper are portrayed as not talking. I watch Supernatural and the reaper they had on a few episodes was a fearsome chatterbox. Of course he didn't wear a hood like the one below but he was still frightening.

This fearsome Grim Reaper costume includes the robe and hood with large flared sleeves and the scary blank mask. This is a great costume.

Does the Grim Reaper scare you?

      These are pretty scary and I would probably not wear these around the kids. LOL I like the Grave Reaper costume best.

      There should be at least one person wearing one of these costumes for Halloween.
