Updated on September 17, 2014

Dress Up in a Skelita Calaveras Costume

It has never been easier to dress up like Monster High doll Skelita Calaveras since Mattel released an officially licensed Skelita Calaveras costume for 2013. The costume is inspired by the clothes worn by the doll in her debut in the Scaris City of Frights collection.

Beyond the officially licensed Skelita costume you will need to focus on painting your face to look like a sugar skull. You may wish to practice this make-up technique well before your costume party or Halloween to make sure you get it right.

There are no official costume accessories to complete the Skelita costume. You will need to hunt for items like the dolls necklace and shoes to finish off your costume.
