A word from Zulen, the 'Dark Nurse' costume creator:
Hi all, this costume was inspired by the Silent Hill movie and I am the one wearing it. It was a very fun and exciting project to work on, I spent about 4 weeks making it.
The mask was made out of latex and I painted it with an airbrush gun. I then attached the mask to a spandex material fabric which covered my entire head (I attached a zipper in the back to make it easier to wear) and then spray painted that also.
The nurse dress and hat were made out of some white fabric I found at a fabric shop for about $12 or so. I dipped the fabric in a bucket with boiling water, ground coffee and green tea to give it that "old" 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 used 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 :)
