I made a Grim Reaper Costume this year...using a black full sleeve t-shir...a black wraparound skirt, a store-bought mask and a self made scythe which I constructed out of foam and can check out my costume here
and here's the guide to the scythe

I once went to a fancy dress party as Death wearing a hooded duffle coat, wearing a Death mask and carrying a real scythe.  Maybe not too authentic (apart from the scythe) but it got a few good laughs. 
(Note to self : Next time put scythe away BEFORE partaking of strong drink ;¬)
