Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler The Idiot’s Lantern Doctor Who Costume
Debuted: San Diego Comic-Con 2008
I adore the new seasons of Doctor Who. “The Idiot’s Lantern” was an adorable episode set in 1950’s London. Rose and the Doctor had meant to go see an Elvis concert, hence their outfits, but mistakenly ended up here instead. I love this style of dress anyway, and had been wanting to cosplay something from Doctor Who for a while.
I made the dress myself using a circle skirt for the skirt and a fitted strapless bodice. In retrospect I should have used a full pleated skirt for the skirt. I used confetti dot for the bodice fabric since I couldn’t find a matching sequined fabric. I’m wearing a tulle petticoat underneath that peaks out. The jacket (not shown in photos) is a sold out TopShop moto jacket (what she actually wears in the show) that I found on ebay. I added a pink flower pin to the pocket. I got a pink plastic rose ring from etsy.com.
I pulled my Rose Tyler wig up in a high pony-tail and used a matching hair extension clip to make her high-hair in the back plus a pink headband.
It’s worn with pink earrings, pink sunglasses, large fishnet tights and pink peeptoe heels.
