How to Make a Nun Costume

That's right- a no sew, no fuss, super easy nun costume. Most of you can probably put this together with stuff you already have at home.

What you need to make an easy nun costume:
  • Graduation gown (or plain black dress)
  • White t-shirt
  • Black fabric or black t-shirt
Start with an old graduation gown. If you don't have one, you can probably get one pretty cheap at a thrift store. I'm pretty lucky that my husband graduated from Franciscan, so his was black. However, if your graduation robe is a different color, do a quick google image search to see if nuns come in that color- chances are there's an order somewhere that does! Then put on a white t-shirt- but not all the way. Put your face through, but don't pull it all the way over your head. Like so:

Then throw the sleeves behind your shoulders. Nothing too hard here. You can even see that the shirt I'm using has a small logo on it- whatever!

Then throw a piece of black fabric on top. I didn't have any black fabric, so I folded a black t-shirt in half long ways and it worked just fine. Attach with bobby pins for extra wearability.

Then hold a rosary and try to look really "holy". :-)

And because I'm not really that cute, check out this picture!
The baby on the left (a baby friend of ours) has a costume made with a very similar technique, and Violet on the right (My little sweetheart) is wearing a nun costume that I already posted directions for.

This post might seem a bit random to you today (given that it's not currently Halloween, All Saint's Day, or any other day of which you think you would need a costume... YET!) But tomorrow, "N is for Nun" and you just might find this post a little more handy. I know I will! :-)

  15. It is common for an average child that experiences acne to scratch their faces
    and try to remove the lumps by themselves - natural instincts and reflexes.
    This skin disorder usually affects the people at their teenage and
    with the increase in age, it starts decreasing. That said, there is really no reason to think that you can't get rid of the acne problem that you might be plagued with.
