A new Halloween costume is making headlines. 

The Women's Ghosted Costume is available at Party City. It features a white hooded dress with a jagged hemline. The front features message bubbles of unanswered texts including "See u tonight?" and "R U OK!?"

The term "ghosting" refers to suddenly stopping communication with an individual via text instead of explaining to them why you do not want to talk to or see them again. 

For some reason, there doesn't seem to be a costume for men even though they are also known for ghosting.

And, the messages on the costume are blue which usually indicated outgoing message. So, it's not clear if the person in the costume is the one being ghosted or the one doing the ghosting.
