Doctor's Costumes

Dress Like the Doctor (and Co.)

Anglophenia has a few handy hints for those Doctor Who cosplayers attending the upcoming events like this week’s London Comic Con.

The list includes all eleven Doctors, and a few items crop up a couple of times; bow ties, anyone?

I particularly like their Second Doctor hair suggestion:

This is easy. A Beatle-wig will do the job just fine. Try and kick it around the room a few times before you put it on though. It should be a little scruffy.

But I know what you’re thinking. What about the Sixth Doctor’s jacket? Well…

You’re going to need to get A Sixth Doctor coat, either made specially or bought specially or you can make it yourself from any decent collection of dog blankets. Don’t forget the cat brooch on the pink lapel. And again, it’s a frock coat.

Sadly, the list doesn’t cover everything. For instance, the Eleventh Doctor wears braces and a gold watch, both of which are left unmentioned – but at least they sum him up quite nicely:

The Eleventh Doctor’s shoes reflect his need for something practical and a little stuffy, as if he’s a child in a man’s world and doesn’t want to be found out.

If you want to look like the coolest Time Lord around (although there is, supposedly, only one left), head over to Anglophenia now. And if you want to be a bit different, they’ve also expanded into companion costumes (now including The Doctor’s Wife’s Idris).

Or you could always go as Jeremy Clarkson.


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion: http://thedoctorwhocompanion.com/
