This is my first instructable, so wish me luck. c:

Basically, this is how to make all of the components of a Silent Hill nurse costume; so that includes shoes, tights, dress, mask, hat, and makeup.

Anyway, I did this for Halloween 2008 (sorry this is so late..:( ), and it was a great success. Everyone seemed to love it, but I remember looking everywhere for help on how to do this. I wound up having next to no luck, and figured that I may as well make an instructable to help others with the task, cause it's not an uncommon costume.

Also..leave yourself a bit of time for this. I somehow managed to complete it in three days (once I got the pattern in the mail), but if you want to do a fantastic job, I'd take more time on it. It didn't come out as well as I'd expected, unfortunately. Additionally, I apologize for lack of step by step pictures, and the fact that the the pictures are so low quality..I don't have a real camera besides that on my cell phone. I decided to make this once I was well done with it, so next time I submit something it'll be better, I promise. Either way, here goes. :)

Step 1: What You'll Need

You will need:
-Shirt Dress pattern (most will do, just try to get one similar to the costume. You'll be shortening it after. I used McCalls M4769)
-1 Yard of White or Off-White linen & all the fixin's..buttons or velcro, thread, etc. (I wouldn't place any bets on the amount of fabric used, cause I reused a costume I previously made. Just follow what's on the pattern for your size, and a little extra for the hat.)
-Plaster Strips
-A Plastic Bag
-White & Clear spray paint (Optional..but you can get 'em at cheapie stores for a buck apiece.)
-Acrylic Paints (brown, light brown, dark green, black, and red)
-Fake blood (Also optional, but very useful. Only downside is if it dries on your fabric it tends to look a little pinker than one would like)
-White tights
-Old pantyhose or knee high..something like that.
-White high heels or flats (since I did the costume last minute I'm afraid I didn't have a chance to get a pair of heels I didn't mind messing up..I'm sad about it. :c )
-Paintbrushes & Newspaper
-An outfit you don't mind screwing up in the process
