The American Horror Story: Asylum trailers feature a stark white nun who seems innocent enough that is until black tears start running out of her eyes. This creepy costume is perfect for those that might leave it to the last minute.
In Game of Thrones, Unella (Hannah Waddingham) is a Septa and devotee to the High Sparrow. After Cersei Lannister confesses her crimes, Unella strips her naked and forces her to walk through the jeering crowds to return to the Red Keep. As if that wasn’t humiliating enough, she follows closely behind while ringing a bell and chanting “shame, shame, shame”, earning the nickname the “Shame Nun”.
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.
