    Romeo and Juliet (or Ghoul-iet)

    “Romeo and Juliet were very much in love when they were wed. They honored every vow, but where are they now? They’re dead!” Put a spooky twist on one of literature’s most famous couples by dressing as their ghostly forms. You can use Baz Luhrman’s iconic movie for inspiration. If you use their ghostly forms, you should note that Romeo died from poison and Juliet from a gunshot.
