When my friend Ryan and I started throwing together Megacon cosplay ideas, we had the idea to do matching costumes (not couples' costumes...as we are not and never were a couple). When he picked the Eleventh Doctor, I was kind of stumped for a character choice. At first I thought of River Song, but what incarnation of River would I do? I thought of the version from Let's Kill Hitler (maybe I'll do that eventually), but gave up because I don't think I'd pull off a decent River. Then Kovarian came to mind...and the rest is history.
Since my natural hair color is similar enough to Kovarian's to pass, I think, I did not buy a wig for her. Although, I think I'd have to curl the living snot out of my hair to make the style accurate. The jacket, skirt, and shoes are items that I had. I had to go out and buy tights though...I found a decent pair for 99 cents though (awwww yeeeeeeah)!
Now for the eye drive...ugh, the eye drive. Here's the thing: I made a really really nice one at first out of clay. And then I painted it. Oh, it was marvelous. Then when I went to put it on, it split in two. NOOOOO!!! So I remade one out of craft foam and attached it with double-stick tape. It's a little more forgiving I think, but still not quite accurate. I'll be toying with it in the days leading up to Megacon.
