1920s Take on the Seventh Doctor

Movies & TV, Stunt Double

Spotted on Cosplay Couture: what was envisioned as a more Edwardian design turned into a 1920s-30s take on the Seventh Doctor.

Costumer Courtney Coulson describes her process:

“[T]he final result is very different to what I originaly envisioned, though thankfully for the better, I feel. It was originally more Edwardian but when I tried it on, it was quite shapeless. Sometimes things work in an illustration but not in reality. So I restyled it into something with hints of the 1920’s and 30’s. Modelling this costume was easy though, I love having a prop and here I had both the umbrella and the hat. You might also notice the TARDIS key. We were quite fortunate with the locations, this was just a five minute walk from Luke’s house and I don’t think they would look out of place in a McCoy era episode.”

I love how the iconic details of the Seventh Doctor’s outfit, especially the vest, are still recognizeable even if the shape is very different. I’m not a shoe person, but I couldn’t help but notice that the shoes are also a very good match. See:

Very impressive! More photos at the Cosplay Couture Tumblr.

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
