My husband, a friend and I are going to DragonCon as TV's Frank, Dr Clayton Forrester, and Pearl. Let's start with the biggest parts - their outfits. Does anyone have an idea if these were store-bought or made specifically for the show? I know that I need a bright green labcoat for Dr F, but I'm not sure what kind of shirt Frank is wearing. I'm not sure if it's a labcoat or more like a chef or waiter's jacket. I think Pearl has a longer labcoat that she wears buttoned up. I'm going to take some screen shots later, but here are a few to start with:
I haven't found very good pics of Pearl yet, but here's someone who did a decent costume:

**UPDATE**I know that some people prefer finished pics get added to the first post so they don't have to wade through responses. Some people might have already seen these in D*Con threads, but I figured I would post pics of the finished costumes here for future reference.
Our Dr. Forrester made his labcoat from scratch. There was only one labcoat pattern at the fabric store, and it didn't have the lapels. So he made one, based on a jacket he had. He just put on a dress shirt, tie, and pants that looked like a decent match.
Our TV's Frank is wearing a chef's jacket we found online, black dress pants, and high-top Chucks. His hair was the hardest part. He wasn't happy with the results of temporary stuff, so he ended up bleaching it. He still didn't get his hair as light as he wanted, so we'll be looking for a wig in case we do this again.
I made my shirt by altering a pattern for scrubs, adding a collar and buttons. I just added black dress pants and clunky shoes. My hair was spray stuff I got at a beauty supply store in light blonde, with a hairpiece from Sally Beauty.
