I was on candy duty, but I did wear a skeleton bones t-shirt and some skeleton bones arm warmers. Some friends came by with their dogs who, like my own dog, were dressed as skeletons as well. I was like the skeleton lord and master that night
I wore a black-hooded robe with a sash, left over from one of my kids' Grim Reaper costumes. I smeared glow-in-the-dark cream make-up on my face, but I guess I didn't put enough of it on, because I don't think it really glowed at all!
Here's another costume I made last year. It was my attempt at Sam from Trick r' Treat. I was rushed and didn't have time before the party to round out the base for the head so I was left with a Leggo shape. Oh well, I have time to fix it.

I thought that might be a problem too when I first started making the costume, but you can breathe right through the burlap. The eye visor hole underneath the burlap, and the hole in the bottom that I stick my head through provided pretty decent ventilation paths.
