Making a Ghost Costume

September 15, 2011

My sister-in-law was coming over for Halloween, but didn't have a costume. As a quick ghost costume, I had her wear black clothes, top to bottom. We then sponged white make up onto her face and used a good amount of black eyeliner and red lipstick. Finally, I draped a few layers of cheesecloth over her, including covering her face (think of how a wedding veil looks). It was so thin and gauzy, she had no problem seeing through it, and her facial features were still visible.

She was staying at my house with me to pass out candy and gave the kids a fright. If she was trick-or-treating, I probably would have had her wear white instead of black underneath the cheesecloth to make her more visible.

Hi from Canada! Halloween is bigger than Christmas here in Quebec, Canada, and the costumes are wonderfully unique.

Sheer curtains over white or grey sweats make an ethereal and safe (see through) ghost costume. They're very inexpensive and much lighter than a sheet and no makeup is needed, although one could use a little clown white.

For a last minute costume idea, dont forget the good old plain white sheet ghost costume.
