Category Archives: How to Dress Like the Doctor
For most of my life, I thought that I didn’t care about fashion. The truth, though, was that I didn’t care about the type of fashion that was being touted to my perceived demographic. I started to clue into this in high school, when I discovered that I generally enjoyed wearing men’s clothing more than women’s. It was then that I discovered I really did enjoy exploring clothing as a way to express myself.
I’ve gone through a lot of personal fashion phases since then: there was the hippie phase, the t-shirt-and-hoodie phase, the 70s phase… remnants of all those are still lingering in my closet. But my current fashion obsession happens to line up perfectly with my current TV obsession: Doctor Who. Specifically I’ve been trying to model my wardrobe, in both subtle and not-so-subtle ways, after the Doctor himself. I’ve even joked (well – sort of joked) that my transition is actually FtTL: Female-to-Time-Lord.
With the sheer size of the Doctor’s fan base, I figure a guide to his style wouldn’t go unappreciated. So here’s the first of a three-part series of posts, showing you how to Dress Like the Doctor.
Just to be clear: this isn’t a costuming guide. Cosplayers far more detail-oriented and dedicated to the craft have made whole communities based around that type of thing. This guide takes a look at all the Doctors (yes, even Colin Baker) and presents ideas for how anyone can pull off a Doctor-esque look in their day-to-day life.
So, on to Part One.
