With a black nun habit, you could be one of the following saints:

St Rita — Don’t forget to add the stigmata!

St Faustina — carry a Divine Mercy image and add the stigmata
Saint Katherine Drexel –- you’ll need a large crucifix necklace
Saint Margaret Mary -– carry a large Sacred Heart of Jesus image
Saint Catherine of Bologna –- carry an artist’s palette (she’s the patroness of artists!)

Dressing as a Carmelite Nun is going to take a little more work. I found this brown robe, which you could piece together with this black hat.

Another (more expensive, but beautiful) option would be this amazing St Clare handmade costume.

Saint Clare of Assisi — Create a monstrance to carry along with you
Saint Therese of Lisieux — Carry roses and a crucifix
Saint Teresa of Avila — Be sure to grab a book and a feather, to denote her position as Doctor of the Church
