So I've never been to sci-fi convention before but if watching episodes of the big bang theroy are anything to go by...dressing up is expected.And I am always looking for excuse to dress up.
I'm going to this. Wooo!
So will be making a costume. Anyone else made doctor who costume before, or been to something like this? Can you offer any tips or advice?

At the cons I've been to this year (miscellaneous cons, not Who-specific) there have been A LOT of Who costumes. We saw tons of 11th Doctors, a Weeping Angel, and even a Hello Kitty River Song! Of course, many many Daleks. No Silurians, alas.

There were also a lot of Who-themed ensembles, including this one worn by my friend's daughter, a TARDIS polonaise she made from Spoonflower fabric (I think the blue is also Who):



And a few weeks ago, while researching a totally unrelated project, I stumbled across this costumer's rendition of the Renaissance Cranach-style gown (check out her friend in the background!!!). Too fun!

If I ever clear my costuming schedule enough for a Who costume, it will be Madame Vastra. Just need to figure out the headpiece....

Oh wow! Cool dress.
I'm going for a 1870's kinda look. Taking the 11th doctor outfit and figuring out a female equivalent. I'm thinking if romana decided to co-ordinate with the doctor what would she wear. I wanted to look who-ish without seeming too costume-y.

Using view A without sleeves of mcalls 6770 for my waistcoat.
Using simplicity 2895 for the 'frock coat' if I can figure out how to alter it for a female figure.
using simplicity 2246 for the shirt (stand up collar).
and eliza m swing hop pants for the trousers.

What d'ya think?

I'm thinking if I goes well this year and they do another dw thing next year I might do a 'crimson horror' outfit. Liked clara's dress in it.

I am soo jealous. I love Dr. Who, I wish I could go. I like your pattern piece selection, although I think I like the coat with sleeves, but it would probably be more comfortable all day without.

I assume you have checked out all the Dr. Who inspired fabric on Spoonflower? I would not do the outfit in it, but maybe an added piece like a bag. The Dr. Who dark blue damask is going in my upstairs bath.

I look at spoonflower with envyous eyes. I just can't afford to order stuff from the US anymore. Shame there's not a spoonflower 'branch' in the UK.
