Years ago, I decided to update my wardrobe with pieces inspired by the 11th Doctor, who is something of a style icon for me.
He IS the Doctor
I even came up with an outfit that I decided was what the Doctor would wear if he regenerated as a female.
Most of my outfit came from thrift stores; a very kind librarian gave me the bow tie. I found blue braces at Hot Topic. And yes, I have worn this outfit to church and out with my husband.
Here's another version. I noticed that Matt Smith wears a fedora in real life, and since I'm a fedora nut already, I added one to my doctor-inspired outfit. I ended up in jeans because I only have so many woolen skirts.
(In case you're curious, Doldin and I were in front of a larger-than-real-life cross section of the H.L. Hunley submarine).
I also noticed that in real life, Matt Smith seems to love another of my favorite accessories: the long pearl necklace.
It is tucked in his shirt in this one but is visible.
I love that he is willing to break the rules and wear something that men normally are afraid of.
Anyway, being pregnant didn't stop me from trying out the fedora, rocker-ish tee shirt, and pearl necklace idea.
If you don't want to invest in individual wardrobe items but would like to cosplay the 11th Doctor, I just found the coolest option!

This way everything is in one piece--just throw it on and go! How clever is that?
Now to find a fez...
