So this has been my Halloween costume for the past 2 years. I love it so much. It's legitimately scary AND sexy.
I didn't come up with the design on my own. It's a costume of the creepy nurses found throughout the video game series, Silent Hill.

I bought a Sexy Nurse costume from a Halloween store, and then cut it to make it shorter. When I bought it, it wasn't that icky skin color you see here. It was pure white. I soaked it in 10 packs of black tea, and then crinkled it up and put it on a cookie sheet. Then.... I baked it in the oven! It burns little vein shapes into the dress. Then I rubbed fake blood all over it (the blood is make from chocolate syrup with red food coloring in it. Yum!) And made my own concoction of liquid dirt (using instant coffee). Needless the say, it's a very potent dress!

The mask was by far the hardest part. I blew up a balloon and then layered strips of gauze (a net-like material) over it with glue in between the layers (kind of like paper mache). Once it dried, I popped the balloon inside and then colored it with my fake blood and dirt recipes.

The hat was made using an online pattern, and using the same coloring and texturing techniques above.

I ask that you pay close attention to my legs at the bottom of the dress. They have veins on them. I think they turned out really great :) I put white powder on my skin to make it look dry and ashy like a dead person's skin. Gross! P:

I'm very, very proud of this costume, and I plan to wear it to a convention like Comicon. Thanks for reading! Please Hype me :)
