Doctor Who News no image

Everyone’s The Doctor in Atlanta!

Since time (or, at the very least, conventions) began, it has been considered acceptable for fully-grown men and women to gather, dressed up as their favourite characters from any form of media. Most call this ‘weird,’ but there are some who prefer the term, ‘Cosplay.’ It’s a form of expression, often meaning something like: “yes, I like Doctor Who so much, I dress up as an Androgum at weekends.”

If we’re being honest, there aren’t many of us who haven’t considered a Very Long Scarf, Fez, or a multi-coloured, eye-achingly bright coat, simply because the Doctor Wears One. And at the recent Dragon*Con in Atlanta (where last week we saw Sylvester McCoy reading Matt Smith’s lines), everybody wears their associations on their sleeves, lapels or sticks of celery.

Geeks of Doom have posted fifteen photos of some excellent costumes. Also, some not-so-excellent costumes.

Amongst their ranks, there are a few K9s, a TARDIS or two, a brilliant Sanctuary Base Six spacesuit, and even a new paradigm of sink-plunger-and-whisk-swinging girls.

Surprisingly, though… no Androgums.

  1. I own a pair of braces precisely because the Doctor wears them. Don’t get a lot of weartime out of them though.
