Makayla Rose Martinez, a freshman at York College of Nebraska, has set the stakes pretty high with her scary bodysuit costume prank. “Best $40 I ever spent,” she captioned the compilation video, which showed Martinez scaring various students. Be warned: the costume is certainly not for the faint of heart.
Martinez is seen scaring different students while wearing the skeletal bodysuit — mostly by doing nothing but appearing in the costume, but other times by fully playing the character of this spooky skeleton, moving with an often-hysterical gait.
The college student tells TIME she ordered the costume after she saw another viral video of it online. “Once [I ordered the costume] I wasn’t even planning on making a video, but the footage my friend captured was too funny to not post,” Martinez says.
Her video of the prank soon became an internet sensation, naturally, garnering more than 175,000 likes and over 60,000 retweets.
Martinez tweeted that she purchased the bodysuit online from The Spirit Store. So, if you, too, want to scare your peers this Halloween season, you’re in luck.
