11th Doctor – Doctor Who

img_3694-b

I really wanted to do a fem version of one of the Doctors from Doctor Who, and initially I wanted to do a fem version of the 10th Doctor, but didn’t really have any luck finding the right pieces for it, and I didn’t feel like sewing every part of the costume. What can I say? Sometimes I just don’t want to sew. I knew finding pieces for a fem version of the 11th Doctor would be fairly easy, so I decided to go with that.

Many of the pieces of my costume are no longer available, or were purchased second-hand, so unfortunately I can’t link to where I bought them.

The blazer is just a wool blazer I picked up at Goodwill. It had woven leather shank buttons, so I replaced those with some flat tortoiseshell buttons. There were no elbow patches on the blazer, so I bought some brown leather patches and sewed them on. The shirt is a men’s dress shirt that has tan and burgundy pinstripes, and from far away it looks pretty close to screen accurate. The skirt is a basic black dress skirt. The tights are burgundy tights that I bought from Target, and the boots are just a basic combat boot-style.

The suspenders and bow tie were both purchased from Amazon, as well as the sonic screwdriver.

The trickiest part of the costume was the fez. I bought a regular size fez off of Amazon, and when I tried it on it was huge. I’ve mentioned in other posts that I have a smallish head, but this fez was gigantic. It practically slid down over my eyes. So, I decided to take a different approach – a tiny fez! I bought some burgundy felt and mocked up a pattern. I used poster board in the middle to give the fez some structure, and then hand-sewed the entire thing. I sewed it onto a headband, and the tiny fez was complete!

I’m really happy with how this cosplay turned out!
