According to Urban Dictionary the word 'ghosted' is defined as the following:

Verb: "When someone you love disappears without explanation".

It's probably something that everyone has encountered once in their lifetime, especially thanks to dating apps and the quick and disposable lifestyle that we live in nowadays.

However, despite it occurring on an almost daily basis, it's probably the last thing that you'd expect to see turned into a Halloween costume.

Yet some bright spark at the costume company Party City had the genius idea of turning the term into a costume and it has caused a stir on the Internet.

The description on the website reads as follows.

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.

The texts include "???," "R U OK!?," and more. Eager texters will know not to bother you in this Ghosted Costume!

Images of the costume have gone viral on social media and some people have found it hilarious.

Others really didn't see the funny side.

One person has already found the perfect use for it.

At the moment there doesn't appear to be a men's outfit but if you do fancy investing in one it will set you back $24.99.

Although it's not great it's much better than the now discontinued 'sexy Handmaid's Tale' outfit.
