Doctor Who Halloween Costume | Thrift Style Thursday

October 29, 2015

Geronimo!  Halloween is this Saturday and I could not be more excited to rock my (almost) completely thrifted Doctor Who costume at Comikaze!

I have been so busy working and sewing up costumes for everyone else that I ran out of time to sew myself a custom costume; so, thrift stores to the rescue!  Luckily, the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith, wears a pretty easy outfit to pull off…

Everything from the jacket to the bow tie was thrifted for this outfit, the only exceptions being my boots (which I already had) and the sonic screwdriver, which I just HAD to get!  ;)

I even found the bow tie and suspenders at my local Goodwill thanks to their rather large Halloween section.  The only other thing I had to add to the costume were the elbow patches on the tweed blazer.  It was a quick and simple DIY, so I wrote a tutorial on Instructables in case you have any jackets crying out for a little elbow candy!

I got so excited about my costume, I even painted my nails in a Doctor Who inspired manicure with a Tardis!  Okay, I may have crossed into complete nerd territory, but I don’t care, Doctor Who is a great show, and this is probably my favorite costume ever!  :)  (PS. Stay tuned for more of the Doctor Who mani on the blog tomorrow!)
