A 'Ghosted' Halloween Costume Actually Exists And It's The Stuff Of Dating Nightmares
Being 'ghosted' is the stuff of nightmares when it comes to online dating, so it is only natural that it has now been turned into a Halloween outfit.
Party City is selling the dating app-inspired costume, and it features a one-sided text conversation, while the dress itself is shaped like the ghost emoji.
If you are not familiar with 'ghosting' then lucky you. The term actually refers to the method of ending a relationship by ceasing all conversation and never speaking to them ever again by ignoring their attempts to reach out.
On the flip side, your potential romancer disappears into thin air like a ghost, and you're left on 'read'.
The blue text bubbles printed on the front of the white dress begin with 'See u tonight', with the thread working up to 'Guess not!' as the texter tries to initiate conversation.
"If someone's blowing up your phone, ghost them in a Ghosted Costume for women! The costume is a hooded white dress designed to look like a ghost with a series of unanswered texts on the front," reads the product's description.
"The texts include "???," "R U OK!?," and more. Eager texters will know not to bother you in this Ghosted Costume!"
Party City's costume is currently only for women, which has already been met with criticism on social media. It doesn't matter what your gender is, as no one is safe from being ghosted.
However, some Twitter users have seen the funny side, with one writing: "I'm f*cking crying they made being ghosted into a costume."
"Why would I want this as a costume when it's already every day irl," countered another user.
If you do want to self-deprecate this 31st October and have the last laugh, then the costume comes in small, medium and large, and costs $24.99 (£19.04).
