Sister Jude from American Horror Story: Asylum

Sister Jude wasn’t always managing a mental institution with an iron fist. The vicious nun used to wow audiences as a nightclub singer. This sultry history makes her a great character to cosplay but make sure you stick with a red chemise. Otherwise people will think you’re the standard “sexy” nun.

Angel of Death from American Horror Story: Asylum

The Angel of Death doesn’t fit the dark cloak and scythe stereotypes we’re all used to. In fact, the bearer of bad news, or good if you’re a patient at Briarcliff, has a lot of style. From her pillbox hat to red lipstick, the Angel of Death could easily pass as a 1940’s grieving housewife if it wasn’t for the black feathered wings.
