is a vision in
white and a very
classy ghost costume. The costume
includes a long white,
flowing dress, white hooded cape and a long white wig.
This costume is very comfortable one to wear and is
perfect for haunting your house, neighborhood or at a Halloween Party.
It also is forgiving to figure flaws as it's a very spacious costume.
Makeup: We used a white grease paint all
over the face and neck, followed with a light gray around the eyes to
give a shallow look. You could also add a pair of the White Out
contacts, featured above, to really give it a ghostly look!
The Gossamer Ghost
is also available in a child's costume! Just right for that

She was left at the altar and now out for blood! The costume includes
the dress, veil, choker, lace gloves and tie
string for bodice. Add a bouquet of black silk roses, black hose and
shoes to finish this costume off.
Go gray-white and ghastly on the face and neck, use a black grease pencil to
surround eyes with dark circles and blend in for a sunken, hollow look. Use a
darker gray grease
paint to hollow the cheeks and black for the lips. You can add lace gloves or do the hands
in gray-white as well.
