The Nun / Conjouring
„God ends here.“
Your name gives me dominion over you, demon, and I do know your name! You are Valak! The defiler! The profane, the marquis of snakes! In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, I condemn you back to hell!
There was a crooked man… and he walked a crooked mile; The crooked man stepped forth and… rang the crooked bell; And thus his crooked soul… spiraled into a crooked Hell; Murdered his crooked family… and laughed a crooked laugh.
Valak is the overarching antagonist in the The Conjuring franchise. It manifests as a demonic nun before Lorraine Warren and as the Crooked Man before Ed Warren and the Hodgson family and it is one of the most wicked beings they have ever encountered.
I really love horror movies especially The Conjouring franchise. I decided to cosplay her for Halloween 2019 and organized a horror group photoshooting at a lost place. I love her appearance and instantly fell in love with the design when I saw the nun for the first time.

About the Project
The dress was pretty easy. I used the pattern from http://dr-cos.info/fp-sister.html and alternated it to Valaks dress. I added a zipper in the back and that’s it.
I used an iron fleese to stabilize the collar. I added velcro to close the collar in the back.
I made a white headband with an elastic to put it on my head. The veil is a big piece of fabric and I attached it to the head with double-sided tape.
