When you think of grim reaper, right away most people think of black cloak and scythe. The black cloak and scythe of the grim reaper are of course, important parts of the costume, but there are several other accessories you can add like a spooky skeleton mask, and a long silver chain around your waist to add creepiness.

The grim reaper costume should be very dark and scary, but can be also made to look stylish while also being horrific.

Other cool items included in this grim reaper costume are a pair of gloves that can make your hands look decayed and perfect for a grim reaper. Boots are another part of the costume that, though may be covered by the robe most of the time, should still be edgy and cool, like the ones included in the costume.
