Abby Sciuto Costume For Halloween

It is the combination of Abby’s co-workers personalities that enhance Abby Sciuto’s zany portrayal coupled with her dress extravagance; with DiNozzo’s good looks, McGee’s geekism, Ducky’s ramblings, Ziva’s interpretation of American slang and more importantly the man of very few words – Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Abby’s gothic eccentricity is second to none as she portrays the super intelligent forensic pathologist never being outwitted or outmaneuvered.
After watching the show for an hour, it is not the dead marine that sticks in your mind but the dog collar or boots Abby was wearing. Only she could wear lace up boots to the knee with a mini skirt and create such a quirky impression.

Clothes / Accessories Needed For Your Abby Sciuto Costume
If you are not blessed with jet black hair then a wig with pigtails is a must, paying particular attention to the immaculate hair style she wears.
The next item of attire required for your Abby Sciuto costume is a T shirt which must be black, emblazoned with a skull for all to see combined with a brightly colored pleated mini skirt as a means to confirm her femininity.
Leg wear can be varied from black fishnet stockings to white socks dependent upon whether you want to wear ankle or knee high boots to depict your slant on Abby’s character.
A studded dog collar around the neck is also a necessary feature which can be further authenticated by the careful placing of a temporary spiders web tattoo positioned below the ear to the collar.
The Abby Sciuto costume would not be complete without bright red lipstick, black eye make up and nail varnish and the Caf-Pow drink she loves as well as her NCIS ID. To really display your personal slant on her character, any additional Goth like jewellery would clearly enhance your appearance.
This attire is further represented by the white lab coat she always wears when she’s hard at work on the forensics.
If you want to dress as her in her leisurely state, just go for some black goth clothes. Make sure you have jet black hair – natural or wig, styled with pigtails and don’t forget that lipstick. Those things you have to get right for people to recognize who you’re supposed to be.
