I love Abby and while cruising around various Halloween websites, I saw that they are now selling an Abby costume. I actually dressed up as Abby for Halloween a number of years ago and can tell you that you can put together your own version of the character for a lot less than the costume. They want $45 (average) for the lab coat and $60 (average) for a costume that’s a black shirt and skirt. I’m not kidding. I was able to put my lab coat together for around maybe $10-15. This included buying a badge off Ebay. Enough with the rambling though, here’s my take on the lovely Abby.
The most expensive item are the boots but if you’re like me, you probably own a number of pairs that you can use. Let’s be honest, the platforms she wears at times take some skill! As far as the socks go, anything fun will work! This adds a pop of color to the outfit. Keep in mind, Abby isn’t always in black but it’s probably what she’s best known for. Of course we can’t forget a choker which is an important detail to the character. She isn’t one to wear anything dainty.
That’s pretty much it! The best part? If you throw a lab coat on, this quickly turns into an actual Halloween costume you can wear after you leave the office for the day! Granted, depending on the office you work at you might not be able to wear this exact thing, but you get the idea. If you wanted to make this more “Everyday” you could simply remove the socks and replace the boots/heels with a cute pair of flats!
