Whether you're a sinner or a saint, making a nun costume for Halloween requires no divine intervention.
You will need
- A long black dress or graduation gown
- White poster board
- Black fabric
- A hot glue gun
- A crucifix or rosary beads
- Tunic sewing pattern (optional)
Step 1 Make the habit Make a habit from a long black dress with long sleeves, or a graduation gown.
For added authenticity, purchase a pattern for a tunic at a fabric store and sew the tunic yourself.
Step 2 Make a belt Tie a piece of rope around your waist as a belt.
Step 3 Make the ring Take a strip of white poster board, and cut it to fit around your head.
Step 4 Finish the veil Cut the piece of black fabric into a large square so that the veil is the length you desire. Hot glue the fabric to the poster board ring to complete the veil.
Step 5 Accessorize Accessorize the costume by adding a crucifix or rosary beads.
In 2008, an Italian priest attempted to organize a beauty pageant for nuns, but his superiors quickly suspended the event.
