American Horror Story
All monsters are human.
Mental illness is the fashionable explanation for sin.
“If you look in the face of evil, evil’s gonna look right back at you.”
The White Nun is the cover of American Horror Story’s 2nd season: Asylum. She doesn’t take place in the series and stands for all the fakeness in this world. (I guess?)
In 2018 I was asked by a friend to join a AHS cosplay group and after a poll we chose Season 2. I always wanted to recreate the white nun so this was perfect for me since nobody else was able to put in sclera lenses. I didn’t gave my best into this costume but I’m happy with the result. There will be more American Horror Story cosplays in the future!
About the Project
To create the pattern I used a shirt which fits me. Then I just drew on the bottom part as long as I wanted it to be. For the sleeves I used a lng sleeve shirt and took the measures from there. Then I traced it to the fabric twice and cutted it out. After that I sewed it together and voilà.
Since you can’t see the ears I wanted to hide them under a cap made out of lycra fabric. I used the same pattern as for the cowl for Harley Quinn and sewed it together.
