Top Five Unusual Ghost and Spirit Costumes for Women

Forum Novelties Women's Ghostly Soul Seeker Costume
California Costumes Haunting
Beauty Ghost Spirit Costume
Ghost costumes are some of the easiest costumes to pull off, and a classic Halloween look, but as most of the outfits tend to inevitably look the same, it is very hard to do something special with your look. Well fear not! I've hunted down my top five favorite unique and unusual takes on the ghostly spirit that are sure to make any woman stand out from the crowd. 

First of all, my personal favorite on this list is Forum Novelties' Ghostly Soul Seeker costume featured above. What makes this costume stand out is the amazing ghost artwork on the bases of the costume as the souls of the tormented reach up towards the wearer like a silent white grim reaper. Each costume comes with the beautiful hooded cloak and the elegant and the haunting dress. 

Secondly, featured on the right, is the Haunting Beauty costume by California Costumes. If you are looking for a more specific ghostly look, then here is the chained and bound banshee of old, ready to take on your form. Each set of this costume includes the torn-effect dress, the caped with attached hood, and the creepy chain accessories. You can get a matching white wig here.

InCharacter Costumes Corpse Countess Costume
Lost Soul Gown Adult Costume
I love costumes that are grandiose and over-the-top, and the easiest way to get a fix of the grand is to take a blast from the past. This is why I highly recommend the voluminous and eye-catching ghostly countess costume featured above. The patterns, the lace and the sheer material make this a costume dripping with luxury and one of the most stand-out pieces I've ever seen. I recommend also picking up a petticoat like this one to ensure you get the full volume out of the skirt.

If you like the Victorian ghost look but don't want to have trouble fitting through doors, you might like the lovely and lacy Lost Soul costume on the left. It's a cute old wedding dress/nightdress gown with some lovely embroidering and a very unique look. 

Gothic Ghost Adult Costume
Lastly, we have the gothic ghost costume on the right. While it is ostensibly just a basic spooky white dress, I simply love the coloring on the hem of the dress. It looks like it is fading away into smoke in a very effective way. In addition, it makes a great based for costumes based on urban legend ghosts of the graveyard or drowned spirits such as Sadako from the awesome horror movie 'The Ring'. This costume also comes in plus size here.  

So there you have it! For those of you who are tired of the usual fare, those were my top five favorite unusual ghost costumes for women this Halloween. I hope you found one you liked and have a lot of fun dressing up.
