Grim Reaper Costumes
Hey, it's the Grim Reaper here. I just wanted to take a second to set the record straight on what it is I do and basically to let people know that I don't deserve the reputation I've gotten as being the harbinger of death. I collect souls AFTER the people die, I do not kill them. Sure I have been known to linger nearby right before someone dies, but they are going to die with or without me there. I am just trying to stay on top of things and not leave them to wander aimlessly after their bodies have expired.
You'd think they'd remember all of the 'follow the light' advice they learned when they were alive, but a newly dead person is pretty confused and disoriented. They still behave as though they have a pulse so they don't make good choices for their newly dead selves. So why do I dress so scary? All I can say is that fashion trends come and go, but I've been rocking this same outfit for centuries and every couple of hundred years or so this style comes back. You may not live to see this look become trendy again, but you can pretend it is with your very own Grim Reaper costume.
