    There are a couple good guides to creating a Dr. Horrible style costume around, including this link:

    Dr. Horrible Costume | My Disguises - We Love Costumes

    (this links to at least two places still selling the Howie-style coat).

    This site also has many good links:

    Costumes: Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

    I can't personally recommend either, but there it is. Or, if you're feeling crafty, it's a pretty simple drafting project.

    The Howie lab coats are tough to come by. There are a few on Ebay that sell for around $80.00.
    There are also a couple of patterns out there to make your own.
    This site is selling a pattern Dr. Horrible Lab Coat Pattern | Doctor Horrible Lab Coat Pattern | Doctor Horrible Costume

    There is also a Simplicity pattern someone has recommended (pattern 5386) that is really for a Matrix-style coat- it is pictured in black though and is hard to see if it looks close enough or may be adaptable.
