Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff
If you've already read my last blog entry that I just published this morning, then it's ironic that my husband came across this article a mere couple of hours afterwards. Peter Capaldi was recently quoted as saying he wanted his version of the Doctor to dress in a way that kids could easily imitate. I guess, by now, at least one person is aware of how many people are out there putting a huge amount of effort into recreating that one iconic look. Thanks, Peter, for throwing us geeks a bone! My husband is already clamouring for me to make him this suit. The red lining is still going to be a bitch. You only have two options: you either reverse engineer the thrift store jacket to add a red poly lining or you build the thing from scratch. Not easy either way.
He ditched the bowtie. It wasn’t because he wanted to ditch the grandpa outfits. Capaldi wanted to see a darker Doctor, which is possibly related to growing up watching the Doctor in black and white. “There was just one version of it in which I felt like Doctor Who and I thought that’s what we should go with,” Capaldi said. “I also wanted to try and do something that was stark and simple and easily imitable, that kids wouldn’t have to spend a lot of money on, they could just button up their school shirt or whatever and wear a dark jacket.”
