I truly hate being unoriginal in my experiences, but the one sighting I had was a young woman who was indeed sporting Victorian-era fashions.
Ghosts usually present themselves wearing what they wore in life, so a ghost in Victoria era clothing, was most likely living in that era.

My ghosts who were wearing modern clothes, were not recognizable as ghosts . . . not only because their clothing was modern, but because they looked as solid as any living human.

They were solid until they vanished.

Then there's this:


It sounds like some of these ghosts are wearing clothing, that while not up-to-date, could be considered modern.

Then there's this possibility....

Maybe it takes them so long to build up enough spectral energy the only ghosts WE CAN SEE have been dead over a century. and all the disco and hippie ghosts aren't strong enough to be seen by the living yet.

I just want to know why Douche Bagans and his crew haven't been nominated for an Oscar for their various performances after being possessed.

I saw both in broad daylight very clearly.

The first was a lady in her fifties or sixties. She had wavy blonde hair that sat rather close to her head and she was slightly plump. She was wearing a modern tunic blouse and pants. The tunic was pale gray and had a silky shine to it. She looked like anyone I would see at the grocery store or in a restaurant, and not give a second look.

It was broad daylight and I was startled to see a stranger in my room! I did not know she was a ghost until she disappeared. She looked like a flesh and blood three-dimensional person.

The second was a man wearing a t-shirt and jeans. I also didn't know this one was a ghost. He walked on my deck past one window, and then didn't appear in the very next window just a few inches away. I thought it was my friend walking on the deck, and waited to see him going past the next window. When nothing happened, I got up and looked, and no one was there.

My friend then came out of another room. He wasn't out on the deck at all. There are no stairs from the ground to the deck, so no stranger can get up there either.
That would suggest to me that they lived during modern times.

I believe ghosts appear based on what they looked like and wore during their lives. For example, there are ghosts that hang around opera houses that have been identified as being a former owner or opera singer and they appear wearing the clothing they wore at the time. I've never read an account of a ghost appearing in clothing from one era when they were identified as living in another era.

Well, all I can say is that the only ghosts I have ever seen have been in my dreams.
I have very precise, vivid dreams interacting with deceased people and two pets that I once knew.

The two most vivid images were both dressed in their own modern clothing that they wore in life.
One was a woman who was not related to me, who I knew very well as her caregiver. She wore a
specific, bright red dress and was perfectly coiffed. She locked eyes with me, smirked and when I
spoke to her and walked toward her, she turned opaque and then disappeared. I told her family
about the dream and they told me that her favorite color was red and it sounded like her.

The second person was my dad. He wore the specific clothes that he wore as I last saw him in. A
baseball hat and denim jacket/blue jeans and white athletic shoes. In my dream, he said telepathically
to let's go get some ice cream. He was alone, which was strange because he was happily married most of
my growing up to his long term wife who was with him constantly. Then my dad noticed and liked some nice
mosaic artwork that I had made in real life.....After he passed away.

If they are from a certain era wouldn't it make sense for them to be wearing the clothing from their time period? I would assume they would be wearing what they wore when they lived. I've never really made out clothing when I have seen a spirit. My son told me once there was a man standing in his doorway wearing a suit and hat and smoking a cigarette once. He was maybe 6-7 years old at the time and when I asked what kind of hat he didn't know a name but after looking at pictures we determined it was a fedora type hat. My friend recently posted this to her Instagram account and it made me laugh.

Exactly. Ghosts don't have to obey The Law...What are you going to do it you catch them breaking it? Hang them?

Question: If Milton Berle comes back as a ghost, will he be dressed as a man or a woman?

Fair warning: If I ever come back as a ghost, I'm coming back buck naked and howling.
