Warp the traditional and go from educated healer to twisted madman. A few splashes of fake blood are an easy addition, and against the stark white of your phd lab coat, is unmistakable. Give your hair the “neglected” look because you have clearly been too busy working on patients to worry about personal hygiene.
Don’t forget to use some props to enhance your doctor image. Load the pockets of your lab coat with stethoscope, syringe needles, add a few tools that seem to be smeared with blood – and offer to check for fever with a huge candy thermometer.
Becoming a doctor is more fun when you choose a creative name and perhaps a story to use for your pretend doctor. Start a conversation by being Doctor Limb or Dr. Feelgood, check out arms or distributing candy pills. You could use your own name but such fun to have a suggestive name such as Doctor Cutup or even Dr. Wrong.
Use a name to create a theme for doctor Halloween costumes. Doctor Love or Doctor Casanova work well with hair slicked back and a pair of ladies undies hanging from the pocket. This is a theme that can become as adult as you care to make it. Doctor Hacker might carry an arm or leg slung over his shoulder or carries a large bloody saw in his hands.
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.
By adding names and personalities to doctor Halloween costumes you can create unique and unusual characters. What doesn’t change is the comfort of this clothing. After all, white lab coats and surgical scrubs are worn daily by real-life doctors. This is comfortable clothing that is easy to wear, easy to wash and won’t be hot and itchy. The clothing for doctor Halloween costumes is also versatile. You can be a good doctor this year, a distracted doctor next year and a mad scientist the year after that.
