Clubbing as a ghost

A couple of days ago, I wrote about my amazingly inventive, creative and labour-intensive ghost costume. Now that I've worn this look to a club, I never want to wear anything else again! Here are all the fantastic things about clubbing as a ghost.

  • You look awesome
  • People will laugh at you (in a good way)
  • Dancing as a ghost is hilarious, especially if it's a song that requires a dance routine
  • Nobody knows who you are so you can dance as badly as you like
  • It's never been easier to avoid exes and people who hate you
  • The sheets are surprisingly tiring on the arms. Hello muscles!
  • Wear a cross-body bag under the sheet and it's completely safe from pickpockets
  • It doubles up as a warm blanket once you get outside in the cold
  • If you get tired, wiggle your arms around a bit and it looks like you're still dancing
  • No more awkward lipsynching, pretending to know the lyrics 
  • I wasn't asked for ID (I'm also 26 though, so this isn't a huge benefit)
  • It's not clear if you're a man or a woman, so no creeps coming on to you
  • No creeps approaching your friends either, since you might be a hench boxer under that sheet
Ok, so it was ridiculously hot, people kept stepping on me, the sheet constantly slipped so my eye holes were all over the place and, even when they were in place, I had tunnel vision but it was so much fun!

Everybody should dress as a ghost at least once in their lives. 


  1. Fantastic, that's next year's costume sorted then! :)

  2. You had me totally convinced of being a ghost next year, until I read the cons at the end. Still, it is a wonderfully ironic costume, and I still might dress up as one in the future.

  3. haha way to go, this is awesome.

  4. Lol! Love it. I often get really yawny on a night out, so being able to hide the tiredness and pretend you are still wide awake is always a plus! x

  5. I think this would be a useful outfit for life in general sometimes!!

  6. Hahaha love this post! I had a bit of a bad experience with said creeps at the weekend, so maybe I'll don the sheets next tim I'm out!


  7. Becky, I love this post. My halloween costume for next year is officially sorted. I think my dance routine to Fancy would look absolutely fantastic as a ghost. x

  8. Haha this is absolutely amazing! xx

  9. Ahahaha what an awesome idea! It's so unoriginal it's original, if that makes any sense. I may need to be a ghost one year. The benefits sound like they far outweigh any cons!
