Plague Doctor Costumes
There was nothing good about the bubonic plague, but out of those dark times the plague doctor look was born. The iconic hook-nosed masks were worn to protect the doctor from their patients, but now serve the soul purpose of creeping people out. Paired with dark and dramatic cloaks and lanterns for the doctor to navigate through towns at nightfall, plague doctors looked more like grim reapers than caregivers. But that’s exactly what makes their ensemble perfect for a scary Halloween costume.
