Hello everybody! So, in the last few years, since Fan Expo Vancouver has become a thing, I have gotten into cosplay. My wife and I went to the first Fan Expo, and all the costumes were so amazing that we decided we had to dress up the next year.

At the second Fan Expo, we went as Jason Wyngarde and Jean Grey as the Black Queen. Our costumes were great, but very homemade, as it is incredibly difficult to find a hot pink tux jacket with tails.

The next year, my wife and I joined up with 3 friends to go as Green Lanterns. We had Hal Jordan (the guy who played him has ironically turned into a huge dick and none of us are friends with him anymore), Kyle Rayner, Anya Savenlovich, and my wife went as her own character and I went as Arkkis Chummuck. We even had a little stuffed animal as Ch'p! We got our suits custom made and ordered rings, boots, etc. online and the costumes went over really well!

TL;DR - I like to cosplay, and here is next year's idea!


In the last couple years, I have become a hardcore Whovian. I have had awareness of the show since I was really young and found some old issues of Famous Monsters of Filmland from the 70s at my grandma's house. Now that I've started watching though, I've gone full-blown, now owning EVERY episode (including recreations of deleted episodes), paintings, action figures, sonic screwdrivers, books, etc.

*This paragraph is for those who aren't familiar with the premise. The Doctor is an alien called a Time Lord who travels through all of space and time in his TARDIS, a ship that looks like a 1950s police box and is bigger on the inside. He has many adventures, usually with a companion or two (almost always human, acting as an analogue for the viewers). When The Doctor is fatally injured, he regenerates into a new Doctor, changing his face and personality, but retaining all of his memories. He's the same, but different.*

Ok, so for Fan Expo next year, I have decided to go as The Doctor. BUT! I'm not going to go as one of the established versions of The Doctor. I'm going to go as my own original version. I know that this may score me some shit from fans, but I don't really care.

So, to any Whovians, I would like help choosing a costume from my finalist options.

To any non-Whovians, here are photos of all previous Doctors so maybe you can work from those to help me pick something that suits!

The First Doctor:

The Second Doctor:

The Third Doctor:

The Fourth Doctor:

The Fifth Doctor:
Image

The Sixth Doctor:
Image

The Seventh Doctor:
Image

The Eighth Doctor:
Image

The War Doctor:
Image

The Ninth Doctor:
Image

The Tenth Doctor:
Image

The Eleventh Doctor:
Image

The Twelfth Doctor:
Image

OK! So in looking through the clothes I have and purchasing a few things, these are the combinations I have come up with. I have four sets of shirt/vest combination, and three possible pairs of shoes. I also have two Sonic Screwdrivers to choose from. I would love any help!

*All of these ensembles are with black slacks.*

Combo 1: Red shirt with brown leather boots
Image

Combo 2: White shirt with grey sweater vest, red high tops
Image

Combo 3: White shirt with red vest, brown leather high tops
Image

Combo 4: Black shirt with red vest, brown leather boots
Image

You may have recognized the scarf from the Fourth Doctor and the red Converse from the Tenth Doctor. I feel the little familiar pieces are going to help people recognize me as The Doctor.

So my big question is, which of these four ensembles is the best, and would you mix and match? Say you like Combo 3, would you choose the boots or red Converse; the silver Sonic Screwdriver instead of the gold and white one; would you replace the scarf with a different neck accessory?

I know this is a lot to take in, but I really thank you all for your time! After I get this all sorted out, I have to decide on a hairstyle!! GAAAAAAHHHH[/img]

I don't know anything about Doctow Who but I like the 4th one's scarf and pants. Number 9 looks dull as dirt.

The scarf is iconic. It's 12 feet long and was the Fourth Doctor's main piece of his wardrobe. The Ninth's outfit is the way it is because the actor, Christopher Eccleston didn't want his outfit to be a gimmick. He did the first season of the revival series as a favor to the show runner and has made it obvious that he never has, nor will he ever, give a fuck about Doctor Who. Which is too bad, because his run was solid.

I am also oblivious to anything Doctor Who, but I would go with combo 2 or 4. No Converse. Those brown leather boots are bitchin'. Stick with those. And a hat might pull it together well.

Those boots are steel toes too! And I can't wear a hat to save my life, as my head is HUGE. But I'll take it into consideration.

I also agree you should wear those boots. I think you should tuck the slacks into the boots for a slight military vibe and if you don't have facial hair, consider growing a goatee or something. Sort of a nod towards the War Doctor.

Oh my god I forgot the War Doctor! Yeah, right now I have a full beard, so I can do basically anything with my facial hair. I'm gonna see what I decide upon for outfit and then get my hairdresser/Whovian friend to help me work something out.

I added a picture of the War Doctor. Also, these are the sonics I have to choose from:

I'm choosing between the bottom two. The silver one emits a blue light and you hold it like a magnifying glass, and the gold and white one emits a green light and you hold it like a remote control.

I would say the blue one is better. I have no idea what those are, but the blue one looks more science fiction. The white one looks like a wand or a scepter.

And the War Doctor looks pretty cool actually.

He doesn't take any shit...he actually wipes out the entire population of his greatest enemy, as well as his home planet, to stop a war.

So I don't know if it was you guys who convinced me, but I'm gonna go as a young version of the War Doctor. I have no problem with dying my hair or anything, but I figured being a younger, brunette version means I can justify wearing slightly different clothes. I'll probably go with the black shirt combo, unless I get a neckerchief, then I may need to do a white shirt to offset all the black. Woohoo!

Honestly, at least with the Doctor Who one, you'd be wearing normal clothes. You're gonna look like a knob if you do a half assed Wolverine. Either you're gonna spend a couple hundred bucks to look decent, or you'll look like 70% of cosplayers.....awful and dumb.
