DescriptionFor 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 took it very seriously. I found a vintage bathing suit pattern and hunted down black flannel. I actually made a mock-up of the costume and altered that so I could make a bathing suit that would fit me.
Then there are the accessories. 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.
At the convention we had a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to doing it again.
