The skeleton crew of adorable animals who aren’t afraid to show their softer side. Stripped of skin but full of heart these creatures are ready for a new life with you!

Originally created as bone bearing graphics and plush dolls, the Skelanimals have turned into a full blown fashion and accessory line. The creatures are characterized by their doe-eye skulls and black and white skeleton suits. They are all looking for that special someone to love them, but not just anyone. They want a lover with a heart that is as big as theirs.

You can find the Skelanimals characters at Hot Topic online and in stores. Some of the popular skelanimals include ChungKee, Dax, Diego, Elle, Jack, and Kit. Each character has their own personality and style. Some are more spooky, some are more cuddly, and others are just downright cute.

The designers at Design By Humans are on the prowl to conjure up drop dead designs featuring your favorite skelanimal. You can use any of the skelanimals from this collection, including characters like Marcy the monkey and Diego the bat. Just make sure your design doesn’t include any skelanimals that are macabre, frightening, morbid, bratty or offensive. And don’t forget-they never bleed!

If you’re feeling really daring, you can even try designing a T-shirt that features your own skelanimal! So dust off your tattered bones and get creative! We can’t wait to see your creations.
