Miko (Ghost) - Japanese Folklore

Information

Despite people mistaking me for Kikyo from Inuyasha, this was actually my tribute to the "yurei" character in Japanese folklore- the revengeful woman ghost (as seen in films such as Ringu and Ju-on). I had a miko outfit from Bodyline, but didn't fancy being a general miko so as Halloween was coming up, so I thought I'd add a little horror to the mix.

This was very much a spur-of-the-moment idea, so I didn't have any special makeup to use, instead improvising with my normal stuff. I also wore black contact lenses which upset quite a few people :3

This costume wins points in my book for being unbelievably comfortable.
