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 cardboard..you can check out my costume here https://www.instructables.com/id/My-Grim-Reaper-the-living-death-Halloween-costume/
and here's the guide to the scythe https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-grim-reaper-scythe-for-halloween/

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 ;¬)
