Dressing a skeleton?

We have a Team Member here at Goodwill Industries of Southwestern Michigan that really has the Halloween Spirit at her house. Over the years she has had fun dressing up her Halloween skeletons in Goodwill dresses and such. Have a look!....
A rather debonair look! 

 Getting ready for a girls night out. Fancy!

 Ready for a ride in a antique wagon. 

 This witch would surely be scary in the dark....
Have fun shopping for prom dresses, formal dresses, and wedding dresses at Goodwill for Halloween. And if you spot one for yourself to wear... you may want to check out this previous post:
