Work-Friendly Halloween Costumes on the Cheap
Nothing says ‘classic Halloween’ like a good old witch costume. You can find a pointy black hat practically anywhere this time of year. Throw on a few warts for good effect.
Don a top hat, add a cape, and attach a faux handlebar mustache. Abra Cadabra! You’re a magician.
Roll those scrub pants to your knee to show off striped knee socks. Throw on a Pippi wig and you’ll be instantly transformed.
An eye patch and a pirate hat are all you need to invoke the pirate of yore. Arm yourself with some corny pirate jokes to complete the look. For example: What’s a pirate’s favorite letter? R!
Simple and affordable. Throw a hula skirt over your scrubs, wear a colorful lei, and you might convince a patient or two that you’re in Hawaii.
Adult patients will get a kick out of the classic Gilligan costume. Wear a red sweater over your scrub top and don a white sailor hat. Singing excerpts from the Gilligan’s Island theme song will win you bonus points.
Superman (Or SuperNURSE)
It doesn’t get much easier than a superhero t-shirt and basic cape. Pick a classic superman T or make your own SuperNURSE tee! Because every nurse is a superhero.
