Trousers Made From the Skin of a Human Corpse Are the Must-Have Halloween 2013 Costume (NSFW)

By Gerald Lynch on at

You may have bought all the latex zombie flesh and fake blood you could find down at your local party store, but I'm afraid all your efforts have been in vain. Try as you might, your Halloween costume will never be as fucked up as this Icelandic pair of Necropants -- yep, they're made of real human skin.

An occult tradition dating back to the 17th century, The Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft in Holmavik, Iceland houses the only known surviving pair of Necropants, themselves a replica of a macabre aged original. Icelandic sorcerers considered it lucky to wear the skin of a man overnight while they slept. Should a weirdo-wizard manage to convince one of their living friends to give permission to make the skin-slacks (cock and all) post-death, a night in the unconventional pyjama bottoms was believed to help attract great riches for the wearer.

Scroll down for the necropants in all their grim, full-frontal, NSFW glory. NB. We take no responsibility for any sleep lost for having scrolled down beyond this point. You're on your own. [Huffington Post]
