Vampire Nurse Costume ~ Halloween 2000


Okay, so yes, I have played into the sexy costumes before. I told you I’ve been a French Maid far too many times to count {& I have the pictures to show} but this, my bloggy friends, is Sexy Vampire Nurse because a Nurse would be the perfect job front for a vampire!

I have also mentioned in a past post that {from 1999-2002} I worked at a Karaoke bar in Burbank called Dimples on Friday and/or Saturday nights for about 3 years, off and on {ages 23 – 26} as the MC. And here is some proof of that time in my life where I basically just drank too much and acted a fool …and I {mostly} worked for tips …and let’s face it, the sexier I dressed, the more tips I would make. I guess I was just a whore like that, what can I say?

Like most of my others, this costume was not purchased, and again, I had everything I needed to make it.

This dress was a uniform that I wore to work at Hard Rock Cafe @ Universal City Walk. It was 1995 and I was 19 then {And actually, if anyone watches Clean House with Niecy (um, hello Reno 911 is hilarious), Trish used to work at HR with me} …and, if you know me just a little bit you would probably guess that I LOVED wearing my HR uniform and was actually disappointed when they told us to stop wearing the stupid little hats {not shown}.

I digress. I had the uniform and apron. My name is even embroidered on the left {but you can’t really see it}. I cut out crosses from red satin fabric and stitched them on the apron and pockets and made the hat out of left-over material {from hemming the dress ~ which I did for work, not the costume} …added the red bra and shoes, red lips and some crazy red eye-make-up and voila! Sexy Vampire Nurse.

I {clearly} had dark hair at the time and whenever I died my hair dark, I always felt a bit dark as well …a little mischievous, I suppose, so it worked well with the costume I thought.

I know, I know, not that original. But it was fun.

    Halloween is indeed the time for women to let their inner hoe-bag out. But hey, I don’t think dressing promiscuously is terrible, I encourage it as a man. And for women? What’s more empowering than knowing men will probably grovel for your attention?

    I think it’s so awesome that you made/put together the costume yourself!

    this is so weird!!!!!!! i have just now looked at this blog. last night i had a dream that you and i were going to a halloween dance so we went looking for costumes. we hated what we found so we decided to use your old costumes. you settled on the supermario brothers dress you wore to my party and i was going to borrow your nurses costume. i woke up thinking “maeg was never a nurse”. it’s weird what our subconscious holds. so funny.
