Cassie from Promising Young Woman 

Looking for something more than just dressing up as a sexy nurse? Look no further than Carey Mulligan’s most iconic look from the film Promising Young Women. Although the movie didn’t come out this year, it made quite the buzz as it was nominated for multiple Oscars. It is a dark comedy/thriller that follows Mulligan’s character – Casey – as she deals with her traumatic past. The fun and colorful wig will make sure you stand out from all the other people dressing up as nurses this Halloween.
