Briarcliff Manor houses some of the most notorious nutcases/criminals in the state of Massachusetts. The homicidal maniac, Bloody Face, was just admitted and there's no need to disclose how he earned that lovely nickname; it's pretty self-explanatory. Dr. Arden is busy down in the basement turning his patients into monstrosities then sending them down the "death chute" and Sister Mary Eunice, well Sister Mary Eunice is the devil. Literally. She's possessed by a demon and now rejoices in performing unnecessary lobotomies.
Well, we warned you. Briarcliff isn't exactly a bright and shining establishment, but Sister Jude is tough enough to roll with the punches.(And there's a lot.) If you think you can stay sane inside the crazed Briarcliff walls, then you're resilient enough to don the officially licensed Sister Jude Martin costume. Take it and go and peace, although peace may be har
This isn't your typical nun costume. Although you'll receive a traditional veil and matching robe, you'll also get a flaming red negligee. Keep the robe fastened together, concealing the sultry nightgown underneath.
Tricks and Treats
We like how this costume reflects Sister Jude's personality; strictly business on the outside with a tempestuous interior. Bring your wild-child demeanor to this AHS costume and people will think you're the real deal. If you really want to do some damage this Halloween, then team up with other nefarious characters from the show. Do a season crossover and get together with Twisty or the Countess to create a terrorizing trio. Create a horrifying (yet crowd-pleasing) couple's costume by gifting your date with a Bloody Face mask. You two will definitely be the most monstrous couple at any party, even if that party is being held at Briarcliff.

The costume arrived sooner than the shipping time I was quoted, so that's pretty cool. The tags inside read "American Horror Story," so that's kind of cool that it's like, official, I suppose.
Everything is as pictured-- the front of the dress closes/opens with three velcro tabs. The red slip has adjustable spaghetti straps (which I appreciate very much!) & a side zipper to ease it on/off. The habit is one continuous white headband with the black cloth attached-- it needs to be pulled down around the neck & pushed back up to get it on.
I'm only giving it 4 stars because as soon as I opened it I was like: "Oh, it's really cheap looking." I know PhotoShop & camera angles & models make costumes look better than they actually are, & I know it's a Halloween costume, but for the money I paid, I was expecting something just a bit more of a higher quality.
The red slip has a tag that specifically reads: "Do not wash do not bleach do not dry clean do not iron." Ummm... what? I'm going to hand-wash it, & as far as ironing goes, it's really really wrinkled, so I'm just going to set my iron on the lowest setting & hope for the best, as not washing & not ironing are not options.
I hope to order from Halloween Costumes in the future, & based on this experience I will try to keep my expectations a bit lower.
