Costume Silliness  
Hey everybody!

I have taken a moment to de-lurk and show you the costume i made. I went to Marcon recently and went as the fifth doctor. Since i really didn't think i could pull off the whole striped pants look, I made a skirt and went as girl!five.
I sewed the skirt and put trimming on the coat.
I also did some jiggery pokery with the sweater but i mostly just made it up as i went along.

gratuitous picture of me and a cute ten.

(Please note my *awesome* celery pin. A nice button maker person made it for me while i was there.)

I may look silly but I had a blast. Hurrah for conventions!

I remember you, I saw you at Marcon! :) I believe I saw that Ten also, he's looking familiar. I walked around Saturday with an Adipose on my shoulder, I was making an attempt to be Stacy Campbell from "Partners In Crime" (the lady who collapses into the pack of Adiposes while Donna is visiting).

Nice to see you here! :)

Oh cool!
I am sad I missed you with your Adipose. That's a really cute costume idea.
Next years theme is British Invasion, and i am excited already.
I can't decide whether I want to make a whole new costume or just spiff this one up. (I know. I'm a total dork for thinking about it this far ahead.)

I got the skirt fabric at Joann Fabrics. It was in the sale section. It is really too heavy to be a skirt fabric, it more of an upholstery weight. But the pattern was just so perfect i couldn't help it.
I will post it over there. I didn't even know that group existed!

Ooh, what a lovely costume! And yep, that's a cute Ten.

Arghh, I wish I could go to conventions, but the closest ones to me tend to be down in Georgia... *le sigh*

That is some sweet skirt material. *nods*

That is so ridiculously awesome and adorable. I'm kind of jealous xD

If I had that costume I would have a ridiculously hard time not wearing it every single day.

Believe me when I tell you that it's hard for me too. If it weren't summer i probably would wear the sweater and jacket around all the time.
