How to make a Halloween Ghost Costume

Here are a few takes on the ghost costume:

Mystical Ghost Costume

  1. Use tulle material for this one as it moves softy giving an unearthly ghostly appearance. Use layers of tulle sewn at the top with a white ribbon similar to a cape. No need to sew any hem the bottom as the more uneven the ends the more ghostly the costume looks.
  2. Since tulle is sheer, there is no need for eye holes.
  3. Dress in a white leotard or white leggings and a long sleeved top.
  4. Cover your face in white ghostly makeup or powder.
  5. Whiten your hair by combing it through with baby powder.

Ghost Bride Costume

  1. Scary Halloween stories often contain a heartbroken or wronged bride. Using this as your theme you can easily create a ghostly feel by using an old wedding dress as the base for your outfit. You can often pick these up cheaply at charity shops.
  2. Add white Halloween face paint.
  3. Colour your hair white by combing baby powder through it.
  4. Finally, wear a long veil or netting covering you from head to toe on all sides.

Simple Ghost Costume

  1. Choose a short sheet and secure the eye and mouth holes in place by using a necklace for lady ghosts or a bow tie and top hat for mens ghosts.
  2. Paint eyelashes, eye shadow and lipstick or a moustache on the sheet or just leave balck as you wish.
