I made this for an event this summer and never got around to posting pictures. Unfortunately, it was a rushed job- I had only a few days to finish it, so it lacks covered buttons on the trim on the shoulders and has only half the correct number down the front. That, and I didn't finish the inside seams nor line it.  And I didn't closely look at the reference photos until after I got the material, so I realized too late that the coat was supposed to be made of velvet with only a little satin. Fortunately for me, the satin I had gotten was crepe backed, so I used the "wrong side" for most of the coat. And now that you know all my dirty secrets, on to the pictures! Tongue

Well, despite all the 'faults' with it, I instantly recognised it and thought it looked really good! Did you wear it? I'd love to see photos of that.

Yay! Another classic Dr. Who fan!  Cheesy

I wore it to a costume party, and I do have a few pictures. 


I also made the mask. Posted about here.


Pardon the weird expression. Tongue


The Doctor (my boyfriend) and I. I also made the sonic screwdriver in his shirt pocket, also posted about it months ago.

It was tons of fun assembling the costumes and playing the parts. We were talking about going as cybermen next year, but we'll see how that works out.

You both look great! I remember seeing your post about the masks and thinking they were a cool design. The Romana costume is very elegant and comfortable, I'm not sure Cybermen will be though! Romana I was only in six episodes, but I really loved her outfits, both at the time (I wanted to look like her) and now.

Thanks! Romana I was my favorite companion too, and I love her costumes, particularly this one (although the first one was really dramatic too). I remember reading that in Androids of Tara, she was originally going to wear a brown riding outfit, but it was unsuitable. So the costume department wanted design input from Mary Tamm. They asked what her favorite colors and fabric were and she said purple and turquoise and velvet, and they designed it from there. It makes me like the outfit even more, although it always makes me laugh because in the episode it supposedly is what everyone on Tara wears, but no one else there wears anything like it.
