Halloween Inspiration: Doctor Who Costumes
Doctor Who costumes are always a fun, easy, comfortable option for Halloween. I’ve seen so many variations, including tons of great female Doctor interpretations. No matter WHO you want to be this year (see what I did there??), here’s some fun stuff to get you started:
David in a Fremen costume inspired by David Lynch’s Dune stillsuits, with one of the best Daleks from Dragon*Con
With Halloween right around the corner, and costumes always at the forefront of my mind, I thought I’d also round up some of my favorite costumes I’ve seen over the years at Dragon*Con and beyond.
The last few years, one of the biggest themes in costuming I’ve seen there has without a doubt been Doctor Who costumes.
I thought this was a fun interpretation of a Dalek. A little steampunk, but most importantly, look at the hat and that GUN! It has all the power to EXTERMINATE!
I saw this fun & easy costume inspired by the Doctor Who episode, The Empty Child, a couple of years ago. I noticed her because she’s wearing an old Trashy Diva dress, but I also recognized the episode reference immediately as well!
I saw this TARDIS around a lot during Dragon*con in 2011. I thought it was a pretty fun interpretation!

I’ve never seen her cosplay in person, but the Tardis Princess has one of the absolute best TARDIS costumes I’ve ever seen anywhere!
David and I have been talking about the lack of epic Cybermen costumes for a few years now. This adorable group costume featured one of the best Cyberman costumes I’ve seen in person – and it’s a kid! Some friends have been hatching a scheme to build some Cyberman costumes, but they’re not completed quite yet. Although somehow, this year we missed seeing this Steampunk Iron Gentleman Cyberman costume in person at Dragon*con:

This is me, acting afraid and looking away from a Weeping Angel at Mechacon! But seriously, I hate those angels. I hate them. (David keeps threatening to get a lifesize statue of one and put it in the bedroom while I’m asleep…)
