Miss Moonflower!
Pardon me, I'm new here! Hello Cosplay.Com! A while back you mentioned that your friend had purchased the Tenth Doctor Suit from Cosplaysky.com, and that the only issue was the sizes were all skerwompus, so..... The main question I have is, the Pinstripes, Are they Blue? In the picture, they look white, and I really really would like to find the blue pinstripes. Well... at least something close to, without having to spend 600 dollars on the Magnoi.com suit. If you would be so kind, that would be awesome! With Love, The Doctor

you should try looking in the props forum. i believe you coat styrofoam with Modge Podge (dont quote me on the exact name, but it's listed there) and then sand it smooth. that should give you a nice surface to paint.

@PosiTori- I found a couple jackets that could work for Rose's, even if you have to modify them...

I just hate that none of them come in my size

As for the gun: I had my (Seras) BFG made of wood, but I imagine saws and carving tools may be a bit intimidating for a first time propmaker. You could always find someone to commission it from, I suggest checking out the Marketplace for prop makers and asking them for prices.

Hi there, I'm the one who bought the Tenth Doctor Suit from Cosplaysky. The pinstripes are indeed light brown. I am going to write a review of the suit on Live Journal soon but I'm waiting to get it back from the tailors to write it up.

I'll tell you this though, for the overall build of the suit I am happy with it. I like how they did everything. From the pockets and lining, everything is very light but well put together. And I love my pockets inside my jacket. They are nice and big!

The fabric is probably what I'm most disapointed in. It's alot darker than his, however...in pictures it shows up the right color. It it just darker in person it seems. I was really upset when I first got it because I thought it was black, but it is brown but has a bit more of a grey tint to it.

As for the sizing problems...the first thing you have to understand is I am a cury girl that was ordering a man's suit, wanting it to be made like they would make a man's suit. So I gave them my measurements and they did make them to my measurements but just the way my body was shapped, it didn't work. Anytime you order something like this online where the people cannot see you it's not going to fit right and you are going to have to get it tailored. So I knew I was going to have to do some work to it, but I ended up having to get a new pair of pants made.

Cosplaysky was awesome in helping me get new pants made that would fit properly. They were quite understanding and I could tell they wanted to help. If anything, their customer service will give me reason to buy something from them again, just this time with a little more knowledge of how to put in my measurements.

As of right now I cannot give you a firm answer on whether or not i love this suit because i haven't gotten the tailored version back but I guess you have to ask yourself if this is something worth spending $600. For me, it wasn't. I also needed it in a fairly quick time so I didn't have time to hunt down the fabric or make it myself. So even though it was a huge gamble to get this suit, it was the best choice for me.

If I really love this costume I might consider upgrading it to the blue stripes but considering I'm a girl and I know this costume probably won't work out for me I will probably just keep this version. This is just a fun costume anyway.

I do have one pic of the jacket that I took in the very bright sunlight with my iPhone.

Anyway, hope that helps. I'll have my suit by the end of the week and I'll try to take pics of it.

Oooo, after watching "Amy's Choice" I really wanna cosplay pregnant Amy! Thinking of doing that for AnimeFest since I'll be a little over 7 months by then. Just wish her outfit was more recognizable, cause I doubt anyone will recognize me as being in costume.

You could carry a little eleven or Rory stuffed animal. Lol.

Oh, and I accidentally started a TARDIS amy's choice outfit.. Accidentally because I realized I got the purple shirt at the store the other day on sale, so it's on my list to do now. XD

Also, I uploaded a few of my Vampires of Venice photoshoot pictures:

yeah, me again! I got my kissogram vest in the mail today. It's still too big, and I have to add the patches and everything, but it's so perfect.
