“I love a woman with meat on her bones!” – Bonejangles


Halloween movies are a strange breed.  Think about your favorite Halloween movie.  Is it dark, quirky, somewhat twisted, or scary?  I ask myself, “Why would I want to watch a movie like that?”  Yet, at Halloween I do.  There’s a dark little part of me that likes to be scared or weirded out.  Why is that?


It’s been quite awhile since I’ve seen Corpse Bride, but, for me, he most memorable part of the movie is the dancing skeletons.  I mean who doesn’t love a dancing skeleton?!  It hits that quirky Halloween bone in my body just right and makes me smile.  Naturally, I had to turn my girls into life-sized, dancing skeletons.

  • Tape each piece to your child’s body.


  • Go into a room, turn out the light, and turn on your black light.
  • Turn on some music and have fun dancing like skeletons.


Princess wasn’t sure she liked being a skeleton.  She doesn’t like doing anything that makes her feel like she is a bad guy or not pretty.  I had to explain to her that everyone has a skeleton underneath their skin.  The rest of the day she touched her fingers and other parts of her body to feel the bones.


Goofy LOVED being a skeleton.


Waving hi to the camera.


Goofy went into the playroom to show Bud her skeleton outfit.


He wasn’t too sure about it.

Overall, we had a great time.  After they had gotten their fill of wearing the skeleton bones, the girls colored them.  We are going to tape them up on the closet in their bedroom to decorate for Halloween.  My girls love to decorate.

      I bought mine from Zurcher’s (which means it was probably overpriced). I got the big, fancy $30.00 kind and have loved having it throughout the years. Just make sure not to get the little black light bulbs. They do not work. I once saw some smaller, hand-held kind at Walmart, but I do not know if they have them this year.
