I've been working for my costume for over a month now, and have been more concerned with the look than what it is. However, a good 10 or so people have asked me what I'm supposed to be, so I need a name to go with it. Help! The whole look is based on a makeup look that Illamasqua and is kinda neo-victorian gothic.

This was my test run with makeup:


This is the newest set of pictures I have of the outfit (I have since altered the shirt to have a window where the ribbon is, have added a cape and a parasol, and various trims)


And this is the hat:



So what would you call yourself? The only idea I have come up with is Ghoul or Ghost, which I think could work, but doesn't meet most peoples expectation of what they should look like.

Thanks all!

I agree with a Victorian era ghost/zombie.

Awesome make-up by the way, and I love the costume and hat! I'd love to see the whole look put together.

I like the "ghost from Victorian times", but it's close enough ( at least in my mind), that you could also call it a Steampunk Madame. Then again, maybe you could even say Victorian Madame? They seemed to be able to dress the best as opposed to all the actual "ladies" of the times.

Very cool costume by the way. I especially love the skirt, though that black corset with it is amazing!
