50 Spooky Skeletons

From Eating Disorder Fashion to Anatomical In-Home Museums

— May 16, 2010 — Art & Design
We are a culture obsessed with bones, as seen in this cluster of spooky skeletons. Anatomical influences are everywhere, from clothing to tattoos and museum exhibits.

Despite the inherent creepiness of most skeletons, they're still too fascinating to ignore. From eating disorder-inspired fashion to anatomy museums, check out this collection of innovations inspired by spooky skeletons--if you dare.

Implications - The human skeleton provides a bare look at the structure and shape of the human body. This gives consumers a reminder of what the human race is like underneath all of the aesthetic enhancements, material trappings and other layers. Designers who incorporate bones and the skeleton into pieces play on its symbolism of humanity.
