The Eighth Doctor (Please Help)
Hey there, everyone.
I'm trying to put together an Eighth Doctor costume for this year's Dragon*Con, and things aren't going so easy as I planned. I'm having the MOST difficult time getting the velvet victorian frock coat and the silver double-breasted vest, as they quite hard to find anywhere on the net. I have frequently checked the Eighth Cosplay Archive on livejournal, and it had helped me greatly on finding many of the items necessary for the costume, it is just those two are throwing me for a loop.
I had recently asked a friend to make the coat and the vest, but she frequently suffers from depression and she states doesn't have a lot of cash for the fabric. I hate to stall her, make her feel worthless and not up to par, but I might have to look for someone else to do it for me.
If there are any other Eighth Doctor cosplayers, complete with vest and coat, and those who have an extent of knowledge of cosplaying in the Doctor Who fandom, or can point to a good commissioner, please, I am desperately in dire need of your help.
