1. Gender roles. There is so much creativity to be had in cosplay. Mixing up characters, switching genders - anything that takes a new approach to something we already know and love is awesome. So here’s this lady dressed as a male character because he’s awesome and why should only boys get to be the Doctor?
2. It’s the FIRST Doctor. There are always a bunch of 10’s and 11’s and a fair amount of 4’s and one or two 9’s. Sometimes I see a 5 or a 7. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a 1 so this was pretty exciting just for that. (Don’t think I’m knocking the more popular Doctors - I love ALL cosplayers!)
3. I’ve seen older people feeling too insecure to cosplay. But this lady frickin’ OWNS this role. I LOVE THAT. More people of all ages should cosplay!
So, lady, if you are out there, just know that you are my new favorite person and you totally made my day.
