Not sure if I told you guys this before...

But when I was at the Elf fantasy fair, dressed up as the tenth Doctor, a woman walked up to me and said that i could have put a little more effort into my costume than just wearing a pair of 3D glasses.

"Hello. I'm the guest judge."
They proceeded to pull up a chair and I help them judge the cosplay contest. Pretty cewl.
Can I just applaud you really quick? Because that's pretty fantastic. XD

Since I've only worn my Rose cosplay once to a con so far, I don't really have much. There weren't a lot of Whovians (who am I kidding, there weren't a lot of PEOPLE) at this convention, and so not many people seemed to understand who I was. I did get my picture taken by a girl selling Steampunk jewelry on the last day, and she texted my picture to her friend, who promptly replied with, "OH MY GOD IS THAT THE REAL ROSE TYLER?!?!?!?!" It sort of made my day. XD

I forgot this one when I first posted on this thread. No idea how.

I was at NYCC a few years back. It was Matt Smith's first year as The Doctor so the people who don't follow Doctor Who well didn't know what he looked like. I was doing a somewhat lazy 11. I was FAR from the best one there. Heck I was probably one of the worst. Plus this con had maybe one Amy.

Anyway. I'm wandering around and ended up with a Speaker badge for helping a friend bring her stuff into the artist ally before the con started. When I tried to return it to get my normal badge back she let me keep it since it got me into VIP areas and whatnot. (Apperently for the most part at NYCC the speaker badges are for the celebrities and other professionals. I assume it was just a found badge or something?)

Anyway so I'm wandering the halls with an NYCC speaker badge, dressed as 11. I get stopped for an interview. I'm thinking "Alright. Nothing new here"

So I do the interview and I notice a few odd questions here and there. "What do I think of the Fanbase? Have they been welcoming to me" Which I thought was odd for a cosplayer. But I've fielded my fair share of weird questions from reporters covering cons before. At the end of the interview the person goes. "Thank you for your time, Mr. Smith"

I was floored. Someone who knew enough about Doctor Who to know my costume, interviewed me. . .but somehow mistook me for Matt Smith. I figured it had to be the Speaker Badge, and the fact that he was still pretty new?

But it was just weird. I never cought the name of where the interview was for and never saw a video of it uploaded. If was filmed. I figured his boss saw it and was all "Uh. Yeah. That's not him"

Kinda bland, but two moments on the Sunday of Fan Expo 2011:

1) I happened to run into a group of DW cosplayers early on in the day. Then came a rush of people for an impromptu photoshoot.

2) When I first saw Dalek Auric, I was like "Cool, someone made a remote controlled life size replica of a Dalek." I never ever saw it/him before then so just look at my face at the bottom right when he first spoke in this video.

I was Tux!Ten at Kawa Kon this past year and entered the date auction. The girl who won me was obviously really excited, but since I'm the chair, I had to run and do some stuff before the dinner. When it came time to go to the dinner, I walked around the whole con looking for her so I could escort her. I saw her talking to her friends in one of the hallways, so I threw all caution to the wind.

I ran up right beside her, looked her up and down, said, "Hello, I'm the Doctor," glanced around us hurriedly, then took her wrist and said, "Basically, run." I took off down the hall with her in tow, and she was giggling like crazy the whole time.

On Sunday, I passed by in a different outfit and heard her talking to another friend. I caught just a bit of the conversation, something about how "he took my hand, and we ran all the way to the dinner, and then he ate like David Tennant."

These are all great. XD This is such a fun fandom to be a part of!

I debuted my Rose Tyler cosplay at a small con near me in PA. It was the last day of the con so there weren't a whole lot of people left but there was a 4th Doctor, 10th Doctor, and 11th Doctor. The lady at the registration table mentioned them, so right away we were on the lookout.

We found Four first. He was almost 7 feet tall and absolutely sweet and adorable. He offered us "jelly babies" but for lack of actual jelly babies, had Swedish Fish.

A bit later we found 11 as we were sitting around eating. We asked for a picture, but he seemed in a hurry. But in true Doctor fashion he goes, "follow me!" and we all abandon our seats and food and follow him in zig zags through the hall until we ended up in Artist Alley, where we got our picture and then he disappeared.

All day we kept hearing people mention there was a 10th doctor walking around but we couldn't find him, and it was such a tiny venue too. We were having a bit of fun with the fact that I was Rose and was trying to get back to the doctor. FINALLY late in the afternoon we stumbled upon him and he yelled "ROSE!" and gave me the biggest hug ever. Turns out he'd heard about a Rose cosplayer walking around and had been searching for me too. XD

It was just really a great first time using that cosplay, I can't wait to do it again and see what shenanigans I can get into.

Yes, you may. I'm honored with your applause.

It's really fun when someone recognizes you at a con, innit?

I went to the Steampunk World's Fair and attended the DW fan meetup there. I was in my non-related steampunk outfit but was carrying a plushie Eleven I had just made. Well, anyway, I struck up a conversation with a One cosplayer, and we were chatting about the series, when someone yells at us, "DOCTOR! QUIT HITTING ON STEAMPUNK SUSAN!" To which I was speechless, but the Doctor replied smoothly, "She's steampunk Dodo if anything!" and glared at the guy.
