The classic eighties film had three sequels and now is a popular TV show that is getting rave reviews. While you can go as each individual character, we feel the Cobra Kai Dojo skeleton crew from the first film makes the most sense as it not only represents the OG movie, but a skeleton on Halloween just make sense. Below are some great iterations of the skeleton costume that will work for the whole family.
