DIY NCIS Abby Sciuto Halloween Costume


Who is Abby Sciuto?

My family loves to watch NCIS. One year for Halloween, my daughter dressed up as Abby Sciuto, played by Pauley Perette. Abby plays the goth forensic scientist on NCIS and has many different outfits that are great for a Halloween costume.

We came up with the following Abby Sciuto costume ideas: a white NCIS lab coat, black hair, pig tails, platform boots, shoes with knee high socks, a spiked dog collar for a necklace, a Caf Pow cup and some red lipstick.

And of course you must talk like Abby, so study up on your NCIS Gibbs Rules.

Items to create your Abby Sciuto costume

One of the classic looks Abby has on NCIS is her goth makeup, pigtails, and platform shoes. Here's the list of items you will need to make your own Halloween costume:

  • Black Wig with pig tails
  • Spiked neck collar
  • Tattoos - spider web on the neck
  • Black platform boots or platform shoes with white socks
  • Black lipstick / nail polish
  • White lab coat
  • Black or Plaid skirt (length above the knees)
  • T-shirt - typically with a skull or anything NCIS will do.
  • Cafpow water bottle
  • NCIS Abby ID badge
  • NCIS Hat
  • Bert the farting Hippo

An alternative to the clothes is a red jumpsuit.

What does Abby's Cross Tattoo look like?

I can only find it on the video from season 1.
