This was a super fun cosplay, and relatively easy to put together. It got a lot of attention at ComiCon because although there were a lot of Doctors (male 10th Doctors, and male and female 11th Doctors), I was the only femme 10th Doctor. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the terms, femme generally refers to a feminine form of a male character, whereas genderswap or genderbend refers to when a female dresses as a male, or vice versa.
First off, I always find a good photo on the internet to go off of. Here's one of David Tennant as the 10th Doctor in his blue suit:
So, for your femme cosplay, the first and most important item (partially because it may be one of the hardest to find) is a blue, pinstripe skirt or dress.
Next, if you've chosen a skirt and not a dress, you'll need a white button-up shirt.
You will also need a red neck tie...this one I borrowed from my dear husband. :)
If you have a husband, boyfriend, dad, grandfather...any kind of man in your life, chances are they have one of these. If not, it should be easy to find one.
The second difficult to find item is a brown trench coat.
Next you'll need a great pair of red shoes.
And that's your outfit!
The only thing left is a couple of accessories, which aren't absolutely vital, but I definitely recommend having.
A pair of brown, rectangular glasses (with no/fake lenses if you don't need them!), and of course, your trusty sonic screwdriver! The 10th Doctor's screwdriver can be found in multiple places such as Walmart or Barnes & Noble, for $21-$25. It may not be the most important piece of the costume, but it's a whole lot of fun to play with! :)
As far as hairstyle goes, I chose to have my hair pulled back out of my face, but with a "bump" in the front, to kind of mimic David Tennant's hair.
Also, one last detail (and in cosplay, it's all about the details!)...the shoes I found were peep toes. So, I had to make sure my toenails looked nice! I chose to paint them with a galaxy style. Maybe someday I'll do my own tutorial for that, but for now, here's one from Pinterest. And another note on the shoes...if you do choose heels, particularly peep toes, please do what I did not and bandage your toes before hand! You will want to take those shoes off as often as possible (sitting in celebrity panels, etc.), but you will also want to wrap up your toes and heels in bandaids/medical tape to keep them from blistering.
This is definitely a cosplay that I plan to repeat someday (with taped up toes!). I'd love to see your versions of the Doctor, too, so please share!
