After a long day of tending to patients, catching a flick with your friends and family is the perfect way to unwind. The summer season is known for its big film releases, so we’ve created a few nursing outfits using our favorite new and upcoming movies as inspiration.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
(in theaters now)
Swing into nursing action for The Amazing Spiderman sequel. Spidey’s superhero outfit is the iconic red and blue spandex suit. We say skip the spandex and pair Tooniform’s Spiderman Print Top with Carhartt’s Royal Blue Drawstring Pant. Don’t forget your own equipment to save lives—a Littmann Select Stethoscope and Sanita’s Non-Skid Frisco Shoes. Sorry Spider-Man, you got nothin’ on our heroic nurses.
Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return
(in theaters now)
Dorothy’s back in Oz in this animated film based on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Take a look at White Cross’ A-Line Scrub Dress; it’s a close match to Dorothy’s trademark blue dress. Also, her brown boots in the cartoon inspired us to feature The Gwenore Clog by Sanita. Walk through the magical lands of Oz with this Daisy Deluxe Tote Bag. If you’re nostalgic for the original film, buy a pair of your own ruby red clogs here. Sorry, cute dog not included!
(in theaters 5/30)
Based on the 1959 Disney Movie, Sleeping Beauty, this new Disney film tells the story from the villain’s point of view, Maleficent. Taking aspects from both the 1959 and 2014 versions of Maleficent, we first chose allheart’s 3-Pocket Top and unisex scrub pant in a pitch black color. Purple accents are a great homage to the original evil fairy godmother, like Fundamentals’ Long Sleeve Underscrub. Pop on some bright-red lipstick and your Maleficent-inspired outfit is complete.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
(in theaters 8/8)
Rebooted from the cheesy (but fun!) 90’s television show and movies, director Michael Bay takes on these iconic characters in his own version. Our ninja turtle outfit uses assistance from our reptilian friends, IguanaMed. Their Treeline Green Scrub Set is comfortable for a full of day of battling medical maladies. No TMNT outfit is finished without a colored tie-back scrub hat from allheart. Represent Raphael in red, Leonardo in blue, or Donatello in purple. Convince a few fellow nurses to dress up with you, and you’ll have convenient Halloween costumes appropriate for the office.
Bonus! 90’s April O’Neil Inspired Gear
Meet April O’Neil: a hard-hitting reporter for Channel 6 news and loyal friend to the ninja turtles. As fans of the original television series, we throw back to April’s original style. Adar’s Universal Basics Scrub Set in “Banana” is a close match to her bright yellow jumpsuit. Any nurse/reporter also needs a white Prestige Medical Glow Watch and matching Dawg’s Slip-Resistant Shoe. Now you’re ready for any assignment that comes your way!
