Ghost Costume Ideas

October 11, 2010

This year, we're going to a costume party for Halloween (yay!).  Not just any costume party though, it will be a murder-mystery costume party.  If you haven't been to one of these, they are so. much. fun.  We attended our first party of this nature a few months ago for our two of our good friends' birthdays.  That party happened to be western themed, and although our costumes were thrown together at the last minute, it was still a lot of fun!  This time, however, I will be prepared.

The themed party works like this:  prior to the event, you receive information regarding the character that you will portray so that you can dress accordingly.  Mine happens to be a ghost.  On the email I received , it suggested creating a costume out of a sheet, like this:


I'm thinking something more like this:

Or maybe like this (Helena Ravenclaw):

Either way, I think a few "musts" of my costume are:
  • white tights & gloves
  • vintage/worn attire, preferably a dress
  • white face paint (although, as pale as I am, I may not need it :P)
Let the search begin!  Anyone else wearing a Halloween costume or attending any parties?
