I am hoping to cosplay as Mikoto Nakadai from Abaranger this year at ACen. I do not know if his coat is more of a lab or trench coat. Also, where is the best place to buy one online, or rent if buying is too expensive? Same goes for the wig as well. I know of a small costume store in my area but the hours overlap my class schedule at the moment.

A quick search lead me to this. It's an XL though. If that's not your size, you can easily find similar stuff with a little searching. I just searched "white button down lab coat"

First off - YAY for Sentai cosplayers! :)

Secondly - do a search for lab coats. I found a gray one for my Agent Simmons costume from American Work Apparel, http://www.awawork.com/ - it was $27 with shipping and I got it within 4 days. Mine is a little different style I think.

Otherwise if you're local or in southern Wisconsin - American Science & Surplus, http://www.sciplus.com - has lab coats for under $20.


Best of luck, and try to find me at Acen, I'd love to see your costume! :)

My husband found a lab coat for a different cosplay at a medical scrubs store. They had a rack of various styles of lab coats and he could try them on to get a better idea of length, collar style, size, etc. It might be worth doing a search just to see if there are any stores like that near you.

That one you found is way too small for me. I'm a couple sizes larger. I will see what I can find though

I'll check those sites out and see what I can come up with. What will you be cosplaying as (that way I know what to keep an eye out on)

The college I attend has a med assistant program. Maybe the campus bookstore might carry or could order a lab coat for me?
