    Default H1N1 Nurse costume

    I am planning on making a H1N1 "innoculator" costume for my wife (since she didn't like my Roller Brawler idea) and would appreciate any clever ideas for it.

    I am thinking nurse outfit with bandolier of syringes full of shots of Hot Damn etc... that are labeled "H1N1 vaccine"

    One issue is, it can't be a "sexy nurse" costume since 1/3 of the party is spent in a cold garage and all I would hear all night is "I'm freezing!"

    Can she be a pig nurse carrying those syringes?

    Long sleeved/pants type scrubs (in pink), the bandolier of "shots" and a pig snout?

    Or the masks with a pig nose drawn on?

    I'd want to do something like a curly tail too...

    Happily married for almost 7 years... and totally okay with looking silly for a joke costume. Pigs can be glamourous and cute... just look at Ms. Piggy!

    I'd go more along the lines of Nurse Lisa from Silent Hill (google it - she wears a red sweater!) if you think the wife would get angry at the swine flu nurse idea.

    Or just a regular nurse in scrubs with the bandolier... would still get the point across and be warm.

    What doe SHE say she wants to be costume-wise when you ask her?

    She doesn't mind funny stuff but we are going to a party where there is lots of "sexy wear" and suggesting she wear a pig nose would be swatted out of the air like a King Kong airplane.

    She loved the H1N1 nurse idea...it's all in the details tho.

    OMG, I looked up Nurse Lisa....whoa, that is spine chilling freaky.

    Definitely some sort of awesome surgical mask. Her face painted very skeletal-like.

    Just images I found of some different surgical masks

    The mask would look very cool but the idea is that she is injecting the innoculation...not the virus itself, I don't think anyone at the party would want the virus squirted into their mouths.

    I am thinking of a few differant color liquors (red/green/blue) for differant viruses (H1N1/Bird Flu/The AIDS)

    The bandolier got me thinking "Rambo"... which led to Van Hellsing... and a visual image of a hot, ***-kicking nurse.

    Starting with the feet-- comfy white tennis shoes. White mid-calf/low-calf socks over some flesh colored nylons or ice-skating tights (for warmth). White capri pants for warmth. Long-ish (past hips) white nurse top-- longer than a dress shirt, but cut to fit a woman's physique. Black bandolier and belt with syringes that go with a modified NERF dart gun-- painted white with a red cross on it... and the darts resemble syringes. (If it works as a gun-- even better!) Then, hair pulled back and fixed with pencils with the white pillbox hat with the red cross... maybe a cross necklace or spike necklace... or vial of blood...

    That's what I picture....
