Spooky Halloween Ghost Costumes for Women
There are some pretty amazing ghost costumes for women available. The Edwardian lady of the manor ghost (as seen here) or the maid ghost are two really interesting ghost costumes.
There are many more, you can even be a ghostly apparition of someone who is no longer on this plane such as Marie Antoinette.
This adult Ghostly Lady Costume comes complete with a tattered full length gown that’s sure to turn heads all evening.
The costume also includes a tulle petticoat and a coordinated, fashionable hat. Of course, the look isn’t complete without a set of ethereal gloves, and a matching wig. The addition of some grey makeup will ensure that you will be ready to haunt all night long!
There are certainly lots of ghost bride costumes available and these, although great on their own as well, are perfect as a couple outfit with your partner wearing a ghost groom costume.
Of course it’s not just the ladies of the house that haunt it (like the two above), sometimes the maids do too. In fact I once lived in a house that was said to be haunted by a Victorian maid who had killed herself in the attic.

The most famous quote attributed to to Marie Antoinette was the – let them eat cake – one and is all that most people remember about the one time French Queen.
