Introduction: Dark Nurse
This costume was inspired by the Silent Hill movie. It was a very fun and exciting project to work on, I spent about 3 weeks working on it.
The mask was made out of latex, it was an old mask someone had given to me a while back. I cut the mask so that the front part could hug my face and it wouldn't be so bulgy. I then made sort of like a full head cap out of spandex material fabric so I could cover my head/hair. I attached a zipper in the back so that it was easier for me to wear. I glued the mask to the fabric and then painted it with an airbrush.
The nurse dress and hat were made out of some white fabric I found at a fabric shop for about $15 or so (this also had a zipper). I dipped the fabric in a bucket with boiling water, ground coffee and green tea to give it that old/dirty look. I also used makeup and acrylic paint to add some darker effects on the dress and hat.
The shoes I got on sale for only $6! I used makeup and acrylic paint to give it some color.
The weapon is made out of pvc pipes. I spent less than $10 at Home Depot for the long pvc pipe and two elbows. I glued the pipes with Krazy Glue and then painted it with brown, orange and burgundy acrylic paint to give it that rusty look.
To finish my look, I airbrushed my arms, legs, and chest with an airbrush gun. I mixed brown, yellow and white to get the beige/yellowish color. I bought these bottles on Amazon.com, I used 4 bottles and they were $10 each. I used red and blue eyeliners to add veins all over my body and mask. Last, but not least, I sprayed fake blood on some spots to look like a real cold blooded killer!
It was a big hit! Everyone was stopping me for pictures at the block party I went to. I really enjoyed being a Dark Nurse and I hope you all enjoy my costume as well :)
