Does the $5 black one (the one with a scythe and glowing red eyes) come with that glowing orb inside its robe? I don't really remember. If so, just get that one.

the black reaper does not have the glowing orb in the chest, just the gold one, personally I think the gold is to expensive being $10 so i'd pick the black one

I'd have to agree. Besides, the gold one does look sort of gaudy. The $5 black reaper looks much cooler. It looks like a reaper should look (grim and intimidating, not like some weird and flashy piece of furniture).

For $10 you can get 2-5 costumes, a few companions, 2 personal spaces, 10 pieces of furniture, and several articles of clothing. If you had to use $10 on a costume, I'd personally get the Novus Prime Mech costume.

There is no pink one . Just the original blue one and a corrupted red one. There is a pink Mini Mech companion called the "Lil Sis," though.

Hey there, welcome to the forums. To answer you question, I would personally go with the black one. I purchased the gold one and I really never wear it so I decided to go ahead and get the black one. The Gold one is just way too... how do I put it ... Gold . I personally say go with the black.

I'd say just get the black one.  I personally think it looks cooler.  And it looks more like the actual Reaper.  A grim reaper with a gold cloak is just ridiculous lol.

Well the more expensive is called the "Bling Reaper" so I would hope it would be a showy, overimposing Novelty with a gold scythe. If I wanted that particular costume I would go with the bling for the gold scythe, the glowing core and the shinyness of the gold. Although you should consider what you are broadcasting when you wear it. Dark and imposing with a hint of awesome or Gold and shiny with a bit of "hey look at me, I look so awesome I dont have to say it" shtick.

The black gives a classic look while the gold is a bit... Mmm, unique one would say. Not ruler of death unique or I will claim your soul unique. Still, its a gold scythe at the end which looks sweet, and that core. Its a favorite. Go with what you think looks cool. I would go with gold, just because.
