In the vast realm of 1980s pop culture, few villains stand as iconic and enduring as Skeletor from Masters of the Universe. Skeletor fancy dress costumes are available for adults and kids, and are ideal for 80s, cartoon, horror and, of course, Halloween themed cosplay events and parties.

The purple character was created as the main antagonist for He-Man, the muscular and virtuous hero of the Masters of the Universe franchise. Skeletor’s nefarious plans and distinctive appearance have left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of fans worldwide.

Created by designer Roger Sweet, Skeletor was initially envisioned as a “Demon from Another Dimension.” His design, a combination of the supernatural and the grotesque, was a masterstroke, capturing the imagination of children and adults alike.
