The Nurse from Dead by Daylight

Sally Smithson became a nurse at Crotus Prenn Asylum after she was widowed as a newlywed. After decades of abuse at the hands of patients and fellow staff, she strangled them all in one night and vanished. As the ghoulish Nurse, she serves the Entity of Dead by Daylight as a killer, teleporting across the playing field using the last breaths she stole from her victims. The Nurse carries a hacksaw and wears a white dress. Her appearance is made all the more creepy by the white hood she wears over her face. You can purchase a zentai hood or use a white pillowcase for this part of her costume, as either will evoke the same terrifying effect.

Nurse Mildred Ratched from Ratched

In the Netflix series Ratched, Sarah Paulson plays the impeccably dressed and increasingly evil Mildred Ratched.  Nurse Ratched was first introduced to the world as the primary antagonist of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  The Netflix series serves as a prequel to the film, charting Nurse Ratched’s origins and how she became the tyrannical battleax she is known as in pop culture.  To create Ratched’s nurse outfit, your best bet will be to find white items and dye them the appropriate shade of teal.  While this may seem intimidating, using Rit fabric dye is actually a very simple and straightforward process, and by following the directions on the bottle, you will be able to better mimic the beautiful color of Ratched’s uniform, which is difficult to find ready-made.

Hello Nurse

In Animaniacs, Hello Nurse is a buxom studio nurse who Yakko and Wakko constantly fawn over.

It’s later revealed that not only is she beautiful but that she has a genius IQ of 192.

Bainsley

In The Zero Theorem, Bainsley (Melanie Thierry) first enters Qohen Leth’s life when she saves him from choking on an olive at a party. She continues to show interest in the odd computer programmer, which seems a bit odd itself.

Enema of the State Nurse

Blink-182’s 1999 release Enema of the State was a runaway success. The album cover features Janine Lindemulder in a scantily clad nurse’s uniform, which probably had something to do with that.

Nurse Joker

Heath Ledger once described his depiction of the
Joker
as a “psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy.” Clearly, this Joker isn’t afraid to do what needs to be done, even if it means cross dressing in a nurse’s dress.
