Red face Rose Tyler seried 4 help :/

I have the general jist of the outfit down (the only thing taunting me really is making the biga** gun O.o) I found a pink top from Old Navy that was just perfect! Also got a really really good alternate of her jacket, since the original is nearly impossible to find... Only thing missing is a pair of jeans dark enough for the part. Apparently 'flared' jeans are out of style and no one carries them O.o oh well I am sure I will find them soon but the WIG??? Oh that's darn near impossible to find a wig that looks realistic enough without spending an arm and a leg -.- I don't care really about the length (I will have it cut) Or if it had roots (I heard sharpies work wonders) I just want a wig that wont look too..... wiggy.*sigh*

Hi there,
I'm pretty new at cosplaying, but I have a few Rose costumes, so I can give you a bit of advice as to what I've found.

For a replica of the gun, of course, you'd need to make it with cardboard/wood/styrofoam. But if you don't mind it not being an exact replica, there are alternate guns out there you can paint and use as a prop. The main thing about her biga** gun is it's bulkiness. So try to get less of a rifle look and more of a bulky look. A Nerf Stampede or Nerf Vulcan works pretty well.

Gap sells some flared black jeans:
But I've also found people use black dress pants or workout-type pants for the outfit, and it actually turns out quite well.

As for wigs, I'm not sure I can be as much help. It's really difficult to find a good wig that's inexpensive. (And also, it's hard to find a wig with long enough bangs for Rose's style.)
I found a couple.. Although like you said, some of them still look very "wig-ish". :/

Best of luck on your cosplay! Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

I used this wig in 24_H613:

And it looked like this on:

It was very nice/high quality. There are options out there but it was surprisingly hard to find for such a simple hairstyle.

As for the coat, I found a few potential ones using various combinations of the search terms 'purple' 'leather' 'faux leather' 'bomber jacket' 'PU' (short for polyurethane) etc. While none are exact, most are close enough.

For the gun, you can buy Nerf gun (like the Stampede mentioned above) and tweak/paint it, then attach a strap to carry it with.

Little details can also make a big difference - silver hoop earrings, a "Tardis key" , makeup, and of course a big Rose smile!

Hope this helped a bit. Good luck and have fun!
