View Full Version : Silent Hill Nurse Dress?

12-06-2010, 02:33 AM
Okay, so in a few months my local anime store is going to have a huge zombie walk/march thingo. They are encouraging everyone to come in zombie style cosplays (horror films, horror games, ect) so I thought I could go as a Bubble Head Nurse from Silent Hill (refs):


Yeah. Creepy faces, huh?

The problem is, I am so flat out sewing my cosplays for next year that I would reeaallllyyy prefer it if I didn't have to squeeze in another costume to sew. So I am thinking of just buying a nurse dress and modifying it. I am having trouble finding a suitable dress though. I can make the hat, I just want the basic dress. I want something that isn't ridiculously expensive, but I don't want it to be too crappy, because I am planning on using it for other zombie marches throughout the year. Help, please?

btw, I know a lot of nurse costumes out there are kinda slutty. I would prefer something a little more modest (even if it isn't exactly accurate...I mean, the bubble head nurses are wearing revealing dresses anyway)

They might have a couple nurse outfits on ebay and amazon. It might take a little time to filter out the more revealing ones, but I imagine there should be a few that are a lot more modest and sell for a pretty decent price.

Some great info here on the Silent Hill 2 Bubblehead Nurse.


And some here on the movie nurses.

I'd say that your issue is the fact that the silent hill nurses wear the vintage style nurse dress, which is just a little difficult to find these days. On a lighter note in case you want to reconsider, it is incredibly fast and easy to make shirtdress styled dresses (I made my silent hill one in about 5 hours without stopping). So if you do want to consider adding in one more costume to sew, I think it'd be a nice balance of your time. But if you really dont, I pulled this up. It's on pretty big sale but it doesn't look too bad. It's a bit too white, but you could always dip it in tea water to stain it dirty tan (yes, that really works!)


I really hope this works out for you. It's an awesomely fun cosplay!
