Version: Bathing Beauty
Inspired by Doctor Who
Worn for DragonCon 2014
Why I chose to be the First Doctor
For DragonCon 2013, a group of Doctor Who fans decided to do the Doctors as "Bathing Beauties". Evidently it was a lot of fun. I was informed at DragonCon that I need to be a part of the group for the next year.
Pretty quickly after that the idea of doing One popped into my head. Luckily no one had picked him, so I started my search. I found a vintage bathing suit pattern and hunted down black flannel. I modified goggles to replace the monocle. The umbrella stood in for his cane. The bandana served two purposes: a period-appropriate stand-in for the hat, and to hide the majority of the wig.
