Hi guys! I'm working on Clara Oswald's outfit from Nightmare in Silver and I had a few questions:

1. I noticed that the brooch she wears is an East German airforce hat pin. Would anyone who knows about Militaria be offended if I (an American) were to wear it?

2. What are your favorite fabrics to use for the skirt? I want to make mine from scratch.

3. Those who have cosplayed this outfit, what did you do for the jacket? Did you make it or buy it? If you bought an alt, which did you use and would you recommend it? If you made it, would you please recommend me a pattern?

4. Have any of you guys made her gun-thing? Do you think I could make mine by modding a nerf gun?

Thank you in advance!

I cosplay as Mr. Clever but have made the gun and pin for my Clara's.
It is so kind of you to ask if people would be offended by the pin.
I made the gun from a Nerf gun.

I am a veterian, a historical reenactor, and a cosplayer. If this were medals or other awards it could be an issue. People who earned valor awards would not want them to be used. But these are pilot wings. And a foreign nation. You are recreating a specific costume. It should not be a problem.
