    And my wife is working on a Romana I dress - the long white feathery one. Dunno when she'll have it done, I think she's aiming for the next TimeLordFest.


    And just 'cause ... her tattoo she got just in time for Dragon*Con last year, and her TARDIS corset that she got at Dragon*Con:

    Doctor Who Costumes
    Not quite necroposting here, because though it's been years, I finally did do the costumes. When I originally posted this thread, my plans were laid but changed for reasons beyond my control. This year I made my husband and my costumes, he was Dr. Constantine and I was a VAD nurse, from The Empty Child.

    For the nurse, I shortened a loose, basic light blue cotton, mandarin-collared dress found on Amazon for $20. Made the apron from white muslin, and the arm covers and collar from a child's long sleeve, button up shirt found at a thrift store for $1. The red cross is felt. Bought a red cross nurse's watch pin for $10, wore black stockings and boots and a black snood (already all in my wardrobe) with hair in faux rolls. The hair was the hardest part, due to how the gas masks sit, the straps flatten out everything and the straps couldn't be modified or they wouldn't work.

    I removed, without damaging, all the tubes and filter connectors from a small and large gas mask (this is the smaller one), leaving the gas masks stripped down, but completely undamaged and reconstructable. Used car window tint film to darken the lenses. The 'cannister' looking part was craft foam and acrylic paint. The metal around the eyes was cut from the bottom of aluminum cans, which were not hard to cut with a heavy duty Xacto. I glued them on with E6000. I think I could have done better on the craft foam parts, but I really needed to finish and get to my daughter's much more sewing-labor-intensive costume (not going into that one here).

    My husband's Dr. Constantine was easy, just a lab coat, and basic 40s style trousers and vest with a white shirt and black tie, and his usual black Docs. Here he is handing out candy.

    For the scar on the hand, I took a screen shot, printed it in a proper size for each of us, used a fine Xacto to create stencils, and painted it on with black gel eyeliner and red eyeshadow over that.

    Apparently, not a lot of Dr. Who fans around here, as not one person recognized (or at least they didn't say if they did), and most people thought we were doing some kind of apocalyptic thing. My 9 yo daughter did not want to dress up in the same theme and was super creeped out by the masks, so she was something else entirely. Funny thing is, I got a ton of compliments on the costume when I wore it without the mask to take my daughter ToTing, people did get that I was a 1940s/WW2 era nurse.

    In 2016 I went as the Tardis. I sewed all the details on a blue corset I purchased online, purchased a tardis key necklace from Etsy, and added blue to my hair. I thought it turned out pretty well. 12065895_10153711616084168_383310245726809257_n.jpg1891265_10153711617649168_5749399440035693552_n.jpg

    I love this. I've wanted to make a TARDIS corset for some time, but never have. Yet, anyway. Nicely done!

    I don't show up on film. Okay, I ruined that because that's my hand up there, but I'm photo-averse. I hate having my pic taken.
