This year, we're planning for a medical / gory / slasher / zombie setup. My cousin, A. will be the evil doctor and I'll be the assistant nurse who was attacked by zombies on her way to work. I ordered three costumes this year, just to make sure I had a good selection. There was the original Zombie Nurse outfit:
Unfortunately, this costume didn't fit right, even though I really liked it. Next up was Nurse Mercy:
This one didn't work at all. You know, when you order a $29 costume, you should expect it to look like a $29 costume. Not at all what I was going for. Finally, there was the little costume that had quite a bit of potential:
50's style Vintage NurseThis ended up being the PERFECT costume. I love the style of the dress and with a pair of scissors and some fake blood, I'll be be able to zombify the dress with ease. I'm especially looking forward to playing with my hair and makeup (especially the eyes) to get the effect that I'm looking for.
18 days and counting...
