Along with the doctor, nurse Halloween costumes are very popular and can be created to take on a variety of different tones. These can be fun and entertaining at any Halloween get together, especially when partnered with a “doctor”. Be as detailed or simple as you like with your look. What goes into the most basic nurse Halloween costumes?
The only choice to make is what type of sexy nurse Halloween costumes you want to wear. Comfortable surgical scrubs are one possibility while the standard white uniform dress is another standard choice. With a surgical mask or little nursing cap and some rubber gloves you have a costume with little effort expended. You can add other props as you want from tongue depressors to syringes and none of these accessories are expensive or hard to find. http://www.costumecauldron.com/shop/halloween-costume/Doctor–Nurse-Costumes-title0-p-2-c-349.html
Choose your character and then look into the wide range of accessories available to build on the character. Tongue depressors can be used in a provocative way or you might carry a large candy thermometer. Surgical nurses might have fake blood on their clothing and tote a severed limb. You might want a clipboard but what you write on it will depend on what character you are playing.
A short and form-fitting lab coat is a must for the sexy nurse. How short is up to you. High heels are needed for this costume and a blond wig adds a nice touch. For this nurse Halloween costume you want to use a heavy hand with makeup. Bright lipstick, long polished nails and a significant layer of eye makeup bring the sexy nurse to life. http://www.costumecauldron.com/Adult-Naughty-Nurse-Costumes.html
A terrifying nurse does not have to be a sexy nurse, although the two can be combined. A set of scrubs works just fine for this style, and they are far more comfortable as you move around at Halloween parties or trick or treating! Add some fake blood on your uniform and hands, maybe even a few smears on your face to look as though you have been a very busy nurse. The more twisted and terrible looking your tools, the more scary you will appear. Go for the Silent Hill look by adding a bit of rust on those metal pieces (this can be done with spray paint, if you do not mind painting on your props).
The nurse look can be altered in a number of different ways. You can combine the sexy nurse with the scary one. The look can also be “zombified” by giving your costume a few undead touches. Deep shadowing around the eyes and cheekbones and pale flesh tones will work. Many costume stores and retailers sell special effects kits that can be added to create three dimensional wounds or rotting effects as well.
Maybe you just want to be a normal nurse. This is an easy costume when time is short. It’s easily recognized, always respected and cost effective if you have a nurse friend willing to loan you a uniform or lab coat for the day.
No matter how you personalize the character a nurse is an easy part to play. You can vary the look, be a naughty and sexy tease or an evil nurse out to cause as much pain as possible. With or without a partner you will be easy to recognize in your uniform and can fit into any group or party. Except perhaps for the most naughty nurse Halloween costumes your costume will not offend or shock anyone. If you love Halloween but don’t have the time to spend on elaborate costume preparations, just be a nurse and have a great evening. Edited by Hetsil Protage
