You'll get laughs at any costume party when you wear one of our nun costumes. We have both traditional and sexy nun habits that are sure to get noticed. A Sister is a woman who has committed her life to her religion, either by serving others or by living in a monastery or convent and spending her days in prayer and contemplation. Christians, Buddhists, Taoists and Hindus can enter the nunnery. They are usually a woman who lives in isolation, while a sister helps the less fortunate. These women take vows that commit them to the daily recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours (a set of Catholic prayers) throughout the day.

Nun Costumes

The robes nuns wear are called "habits." A religious habit is a set of garments worn by members of a religious order. In the Roman Catholic religion, they often consist of a tunic covered by a scapular (two small square pieces that are attached to a string and have religious text or images on them) and a cowl (a long, hooded garment with wide sleeves). Nuns also wear coifs (white headpieces), black veils (the part that goes over the coif), crosses, rosaries (wooden religious beads), scapulars (aprons), and aprons that cover the habit to protect it.
