[[folder:Religion]]* There is a legend that the tyrant Periander, after killing his wife in a fit of anger, buried her with her best clothes. Some time later, her spirit complained to him that she was cold because the clothing wasn't burned like herself. Periander took the clothes of every woman in the city and burned them as an offering to her.

Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Roleplaying Games]]* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has a variant: ghosts often show the wounds that killed them and gain abilities based on the manner of their death, and appear wearing incorporeal copies of items they particularly valued in life. They don't strictly need to have had them on the body when they died, but if anyone else takes the item the ghostly version disappears - which is fully functional, even if it's a powerful magical item. This also explains why ghosts get so mad at graverobbers; they're not just desecrating bodies, they're taking the ghost's stuff.

* ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'': subverted in ''The Tale of the Prom Queen'': Judy was buried in a prom dress, but appears in a casual outfit (to look like an ordinary person) until TheReveal at the end of the episode. * Somewhat justified in ''SixFeetUnder'', where the "ghosts" are implied to be manifestations of the living characters' states of mind rather than actual spirits. Since they're mostly clients of the funeral home, it makes sense that the characters would visualise them dressed in whatever they died in.

* Averted in ''Manga/TasogareOtomeXAmnesia''. Yuuko died 50 or 60 years ago, but when Teiichi first meets her, she's wearing the modern school uniform. She liked the new design when she saw it, so she ''somehow'' got one of her own. She's still got her old uniform, too, and changes into that to show Teiichi... embarrassing him, because she doesn't change clothes by ''magic'', she does it just as an ordinary girl would -- except [[InnocentFanserviceGirl right in front of him]].
