I have problems with the article's notion that full plate armor was not used in the Elizabethan era. She lived from 7 September 1533 – 24 March 1603 and reigned from 17 November 1558 –24 March 1603. There is plenty of evedince for heavy cavalry wearing full plate Armour in the English Civil War which happeend 1642–1651. The disappearance of Armour was a gradual thing especially with the cavalry. http://wurstwisdom.com/picsbehd/what-weapons-did-they-use-in-the-english-civil-war

Edward D. Wood's use of a bedsheet ghost in Night of the Ghouls, to unexpected comic effect!

Fraudulent Victorian mediums would produce "ectoplasm" from which ghosts would be able to manifest. The ectoplasm looked a lot like white silk, probably because this was exactly what it was. The person pretending to be the ghost would crouch down under all the silk and then stand up, "manifesting" by taking it off, hence ghosts looking like white sheets.
