How To: Make a nun costume

Make a nun costume

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
* Rope
* White poster board
* Scissors
* Black fabric
* A hot glue gun
* Glue
* A crucifix or rosary beads
* Tunic sewing pattern (optional)

Step 1
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
Tie a piece of rope around your waist as a belt.

Step 3
Take a strip of white poster board, and cut it to fit around your head.

Step 4
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 the costume by adding a crucifix or rosary beads.

Fact: In 2008, an Italian priest attempted to organize a beauty pageant for nuns, but his superiors quickly suspended the event.
