Death is a pretty frightening concept and much of that comes from the fear of the unknown. So few know what death is going to look like. We’ve got several examples of concept art throughout the world that gives us a pretty solid idea of the appearance that death might take… and it generally isn’t overly welcoming. Of course, we’ve also been taught all our lives not to judge a book by its cover. Perhaps the floating haunt and skeletal face and casual ownership of a massive harvesting scythe and the dark, grim, black robes that seem to wither the wind is only Death at skeletal face value. Maybe we just need to get to know Death a little better before we start freaking out!
Of course, that provokes an interesting question. What of the Deaths of other creatures? Is there a Dog Death? A little black lab in a floating shroud that carries an ancient rawhide in its mouth? Or, since we brought up a rather tragic concept, what about a Child Death? Surely such an entity would have a calmer appearance to handle such a delicate situation, right?
Well, turns out that kids just aren’t afraid of that much! Your own kiddo can prove it by hopping into the very garb with this Child Death Warrior costume. This slipover tunic is decorated with tattered hemlines and a pretty intimidating polyurethane breast plate armor. The partial mask is one that will haunt adult memories for ages, especially when the tyke draws up the dark black hood. It is a good thing that kids aren’t that scared, because we can hardly handle it! Build up a resistance to the haunting spook the year and maybe join in your own Dark Death costume.
