Idris / Sexy / the TARDIS - Doctor Who - Series 6

In Progress

London Film and Comic Con 2011

The Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey award, Midlands Expo 2012




What can you say about the mad bite-y lady? Idris' costume is fascinating- there are elements to it that make me think of metalwork (bodice mostly) and the raggedy look of it is going to be a real challenge to my terrible utter perfectionist. (Ragged hems? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)

Finding fabric to match the bodice and lace has given me no end of strife, leaving me with a fabric that is ALMOST perfect but not quite and needs dying, and a lace that is the same.

Update 02/2012: Idris is still a huge work-in-progress. I've realised I haven't got the right colour base fabric for the main skirt, so I need to go hunt that down asap. I need to replace the ruffles at the base of the skirt as they aren't deep enough, and I'm replacing the lace on the sleeves/skirt/bodice to something not shiny. Also going to be re-making the bodice, as I apparently have a weirdly-shaped torso which commercial patterns don't like. Thanks to Sephnoir, I'll be blocking up a pattern. Gulp!

Great looking cosplay. Love the way it looks as if it's been thrown together (in a good way) like it does in the series.

Oh me oh my! Idris' boots arrived today, and can I just say they are STUNNING! After staring at the reference pictures of her until my eyes went square, I found the closest pair I could, at a whoppingly cheap £16 shipped! This pleases me greatly!
