If you’re not sure what to be for Halloween, most of us default to being a ghost. After all, it takes a couple of minute to find an old bed sheet, cut some eye holes in it then throw the sheet over your head. If you don’t have any bed sheets that you feel like ruining, you can still be a ghost by using makeup to create your look. You know what? You’ll end up with something a lot more original and captivating than if you just stick with that boring old sheet.
