DEBUT: Gallifrey One Doctor Who Convention Feb 2014
Rose Tyler is my favorite Doctor Who companion and when she came back for the 50th Doctor Who anniversary I HAD to cosplay her cool post-apocalyptic outfit. I even got to meet Billie Piper at Gallifrey One Doctor Who Convention 2014 in my costume!
This costume is sometimes referred to Moment Rose, too. At first I tried to find some existing store-bought clothes to modify, but I just couldn’t find anything suitable so I made it from scratch. The original items were all AllSaints and way out of my price range.
The vest is modified from a Burda biker jacket pattern and made of faux suede. It has working double welt pockets.
The white shift was modified from a shift dress pattern and made out of embroidered white cotton that I dyed to an off-white/light taupe color and added some additional lines of vertical lace to simulate the original. I cut a lot of holes and distressed it.
The taupe underdress I made out of ponte knit to make it comfortable. The arm warmers are made out of some gnarly open-weave knit fabric I found.
The wig is from Hair Wig harlem, the jewelry from Forever21 and the boots from American Eagle. The tights were from Target, and I cut holes in them and then fray checked.
