I was at a thrift store, when I discovered this amazing brown suede long coat. Once I tried it on, I knew I had to buy it and one day do a 10th Doctor costume, perhaps in the far future. Not 2 days later I found a brown and blue pinstriped suit in another thrift store and I thought, "DESTINY!?" So I decided to make the rest of the costume for fanexpo. >:D
Lets take a look. As the doctor would say, "Allons-y, Alonzo!" >:D
I was originally planning on tea-dying my blue fabric to make it a bit darker, but I ran out of time.
After much confusion, we managed to figure out how the placket at the front was supposed to be sewn together.
Then I took the pants in. And then I took them in some more. I may still do some more altering to the suit and pants, as I am not entirely satisfied with them at this point.
Some were the pleats and the other was a slit that I put some bias tape around the edges of.
The cuffs were then sewn to the sleeves, and the sleeves were sewn to the shirt.
And then it was done!!! >:D Brilliant!
Actually, funny story: I needed a hat stand for my display, and so we bought one at ikea. And we put it together with my screwdriver. MOST USEFUL PROP EVER.
I met like a million more doctors at the con. Lots of 10ths. But I was the only girl. :( And I was way shorter. They called me mini doctor. I was not amused.
