What else is more classic for Halloween than a good old ghost costume? I love ghost costumes not only because they are a classic, but because they are so versatile. The ghost costume can be as basic or as elaborate as the wearer wants. For example, you could dress up in fancy Victorian clothes or opt to just throw a white sheet over your body! And there are so many options and different ways to go with a ghost costume! You could be an evil ghost, a beautiful ghost, a scary ghost, a romantic ghost, an historical ghost, a famous ghost...the list goes on and on!
Since the theme for this month's countdown is ghosts, I wanted to share some spirited costumes and makeup to inspire you this month! I found many of these on Pinterest, so unfortunately I couldn't find their original sources (if you know them, please let me know so I can give credit to these!). Check them out below:

I love this dark ghost look, completed with dark
eye makeup, black lips, and white-out contacts.
This could also be used for a demonic possession costume!
I love the white webbing used in this look
and the slightly blue tint to the lips!

makeup and all-white clothes.

but I do love how elegant it looks and it's easy to pull
This look is much creepier and achieved with
wispy cloak, gray wig, pale makeup and
