Moaning Myrtle Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
Really, her name says it all. Moaning Myrtle is the young Hogwarts ghost that haunts the girl;s bathroom in the second floor. She got her nickname because she was always moping around, and she loves flooding the bathroom when she’s in one of her fits.
Moaning Myrtle dies wearing her school robes, so that’s what she’s still wearing as a ghost. But, of course, they look more ragged now. Myrtle wears a white collared shirt, her Ravenclaw tie, and grey robes. Here’s everything you need to look like Moaning Myrtle.
