Your mother always insisted you go to medical school and begin a lucrative career as a physician, right? Become a doctor for an evening and make mom proud! Sure, your “lucrative” income for the evening may amount to a few tootsie rolls and some hors devour, but at least you got to wear a stethoscope and lab coat. doctor Halloween costumes do not have to be elaborate, and they allow plenty of room for personal touches.
Traditionally, doctor Halloween costumes include long white jackets and stethoscopes. If you are looking the part of the professional, consider including a pair of khaki pants or any other more professional looking pants along with business style shoes. Although most people will probably not look at your feet, so you could get away with a pair of tennis shoes. Just tell them to call you Doogie.
You might choose to go further with doctor Halloween costumes and create a twisted character. Add splashes of blood to your white lab coat or your surgical costume. Use mousse on your hair to give it that “”wild”” look. Clearly, you’ve been too busy caring for patients to clean up. If you just came from surgery you might have a severed limb in your hand or leftover brain or heart (from a novelty store, of course).
Props are a big plus for doctor Halloween costumes. Basic props could include stethoscopes, clipboards, or syringe needles. The tools you carry can send an even more terrifying message. Add a few curious looking metal tools, covered in blood. Maybe a large bone saw or a scalpel for those tricky incisions.
Create a personality for your doctor Halloween persona by choosing a name and perhaps a story. You could be Doctor Good, Doctor Death, Doctor Limb – or can use your own name. Choose a name by thinking of things a real doctor does when you visit him – and then warp it a bit.
The name you choose can also be the theme for your doctor Halloween costume. Doctor Valentine may be the “”love doctor”” checking hearts with his stethoscope. You can use subtle innuendo to give hints of your character’s personality or can slapstick your way with Doctor Bloode, Doctor Foote or Doctor Hacker. There is an endless supply of doctor names you might choose.
If you have a spouse or partner, create your own medical team with Doctor Feedgood and Nurse Feelbetter or Nurse Candy. Buy cheap walkie talkies in the toy store so you can “”page”” each other constantly. This is also a good way to rescue each other from boring conversations at a party.
Doctor Halloween costumes are a fun way to celebrate the holiday. Add a bit of personality to yours with a fun name. Act the part of the loveable family physician or the insane slasher with a scalpel. The overall look can be easily turned into something else. Doctor Halloween costumes of this year could become the mad scientists of next year. Buddy up for fun, and to create an easy “out” when that guy or girl who always tries to chat you up manages to corner you by the punch bowl! Paging Doctor Love! Edited by Hetsil Protage
