* The film ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'' had this for every ghost except, oddly enough, for the two leads, who drowned but were only a bit damp when they got home (though, at the very least, they remained in the same clothes).And they dried out, too (likely because it would have been impractical to keep the actors damp for the whole of shooting, but still). The other obviously wrong-looking ghosts were the ones who died in disfiguring ways or, as in the case of the headhunter and showgirl/receptionist, were explicitly in costume at death.
** And, if you look closely, Juno has smoke coming out the holes in her throat when she smokes.
** The title character himself does not have this feature, being more like a demonic ghost than a disfigured human. But then, he likely hasn't been human for a ''long'' time.

* ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'' fits this to a tee, with Emily's (wedding) dress being the most noticeable. All the other characters wear the clothes they died in as well. Of course they are reanimated corpses, instead of entirely spiritual beings, so they wear what they were buried in.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieInAChristmasCarol'', Eden's Aunt Marie wears chains with mirrors on the end instead of money boxes, fitting vanity instead of greed.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'''s sequel, new arrivals to Dog Heaven arrive in this fashion. The dog that died from eating chocolate arrives with a box of chocolates in tow, the dog that died from biting/getting electrocuted by the vacuum cord arrives with the vacuum cord in its mouth, the dog that got strangled to death by a mailman's mailbag arrives with the strap still around its neck, and the dog that died from getting run over has the car's bumper in its jaws.

* While not actually ghosts, most of the souls living in the unnamed [[CrapsackWorld suicide]] [[MundaneAfterlife afterlife]] in ''Film/WristcuttersALoveStory'' all keep the injuries that they sustained when they killed themselves, although the wounds are empty of any blood or other gibs. They are able to change clothes, however, and this being a MundaneAfterlife, there are even stores that sell them.
** Also, this only really seems to apply if you killed yourself by a method that resulted in an open wound, such as blowing your brains out or slitting your wrists, as supposed to things like poison, hanging, drug overdose, or electrocuting yourself by dumping beer on your electric guitar while it was plugged in (yes, really), which don't seem to effect the soul's appearance noticeably.

* [[TheParody Parodied]]/{{Lampshaded}} in the short-lived series, ''The 100 Lives Of Black Jack Savage'', about a ghost pirate who gets a human to impersonate him for purposes of redemption. At one point, the hero is in danger (and dressed in a ridiculous pirate getup), and the ghost tells him that whatever he's wearing when he dies, that's what he'll be wearing for eternity.

* In Chinese culture, paper offerings are burnt so that dead family members might have them in the afterlife. Usually they're hell notes, paper tender recognized in the afterlife, but they can also be paper gifts, like paper stereos, food, clothes, and even paper servants.
** The paper offerings get updated with time - at one point, people burnt regular old (paper) house phones. Later on they started burning those huge "brick" cellphones in paper form. They're probably burning paper iPhones these days.
*** They actually burn paper [=PSPs=], [=NDSes=], and [=PS3s=] along with the paper iPhones now.
*** Not enough? Try an entire miniature paper mansion with tiny servants inside with a paper car in the garage.

* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'''s ghost form always wears that jumpsuit he wore when he entered the Ghost Portal. It gets damaged or dirty sometimes in battle, but always ends up reverting back to form after a little while. He does generally have a LimitedWardrobe, even in human form, but it was also explicitly stated that he couldn't change the outfit he wore in ghost form.
** Arguable that he can if he practiced enough. Danny's ghost outfit is an invert of a white jumpsuit he wore as a human; it switched color when he transformed. [[BigBad Vlad]] got his ghost powers while he worn civilian clothes, yet he gains a white jumpsuit for his current ghostly appearance. THAT had to come from somewhere and considering ghosts are easily able to materialize a good number of things, clothes can arguably be it as well.

* Although it turns out they've only been rendered {{intangib|ility}}le, an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has Geordi and Ro confronting the possibility that an accident killed them, and the reason they're invisible to the crew is that they're ghosts. The skeptical Geordi runs headlong into this very trope...

A female ghost in her wedding dress and veil is particularly poignant, since it is an unmistakable reminder that she died on what was meant to be her happiest day of her life.
