Grey’s Anatomy is one of my favorite shows (despite my hatred for the George-Izzie thing), and since the new season premiered last night, I thought I’d take a look at the options for creating a costume based on a Grey’s character. There are so many options on your own or as a couple … after all, nearly everyone has hooked up at some point!
First, you’ll need scrubs and a lab coat.
Then just add whatever wig and accessories best fit your character. For Callie, a long dark wig. For Izzie, a wavy blonde wig. For Meredith, I like this deluxe light brown/honey blonde wig. This short brown wig would even be good for George. For a comical twist on Dr. McDreamy and his famous hair, you could even wear this wavy black wig.
To make it clear you’re not just any doctor – you’re a Grey’s surgeon! – add a simple name tag that says your name or nickname (think Dr. McSteamy, Dr. McDreamy or the Nazi). You could also add latex gloves and a surgeon’s cap, or splatter your costume with fake blood.
