Closets can be crazy things- some are filled with clothes and piles of old shoes, while others contain gateways to other worlds (technically that one’s a wardrobe but hey.) The closet on the TARDIS probably has both.
We’d like to see what’s in your closet, in a very not-creepy sort of way. With Comic Con fast approaching and series 8 only six weeks away it’s time to start getting ready for all of those Twelfth Doctor and Clara cosplays, so today we’re presenting you with a challenge: dress up as either the Twelfth Doctor or Clara, but you can only use things you find in your (or a family member/friend’s) closet.
Take that old cardigan from last Christmas and repurpose it into a snazzy Twelfth Doctor Capaldigan* (that’s right, we said it.) Those boots your great uncle bought you for your birthday that you’ve never worn? Now they’re Clara Oswald boots!
When you’ve put together your brilliant costume, make sure to tag it with #DW Closet Cosplay and we’ll be reblogging some of our favorites over the next few days. Also, as this is part of the 30 Days meme we’ve been curating over the past several weeks, make sure to tag your posts with #30 Days of Doctor Who as well!
*bonus points if it’s made out of 100% rebel Time Lord
Think of the last movie you saw. Would the protagonist be a good companion? Or maybe they’d be the villain?
The last movie I saw was How to a Train Your Dragon 2….I’m just having visions of Hiccup and the 12th Doctor where 12 is near constantly just looking at the kid going “Was I this awkward in my last regeneration?!” Because I see a lot of parallels between 11 and Hiccup. Plus Toothless in the TARDIS I just envision a lot of “Get that out of your mouth” “No you can’t jump up there, get down” “Hiccup control your dragon!” And Toothless doesn’t listen to the Doctor at all but will do anything Clara asked him too and is just an oversized lap cat to her much to the Doctors disgruntlement.
So yeah The Doctor, Clara, Hiccup and Toothless….it’s Doctor Who with dragons, what’s not to love!
Brace yourselves, Whovians: Long-running cult obsession Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 with a new star, Peter Capaldi, and a new attitude. Compared with Matt Smith’s previous Doctor, Capaldi’s lead character is “a lot fiercer,” says Jenna Coleman, who plays his traveling companion, Clara Oswald. “This man is a total adrenaline junkie.”If you don’t count John Hurt’s one-and-done performance in last year’s 50th-anniversary special, Capaldi is the 12th actor to play the show’s Doctor, a two-hearted alien who travels through space—and time—in his ship, the TARDIS, and periodically regenerates his outward form. The announcement that Capaldi would replace Smith was simulcast last August on Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor. For the most part the casting was received warmly by fans thanks to Capaldi’s Who-tastic résumé, including an appearance in a 2008 episode of the show and in the 2009 spin-off miniseries, Torchwood: Children of Earth. As one EW.com commenter wrote at the time, “If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you already know him.”The Scottish actor—whose other credits include World War Z and The Fifth Estate—then made the briefest of cameos in the anniversary show before debuting properly at the end of the 2013 special Christmas episode. His first official ep—the feature-length season premiere titled “Deep Breath”—is set in Victorian England and promises the return of the so-called Paternoster Gang, a trio of detectives made up of the dome-headed alien Strax (Dan Starkey), the lizardlike Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), and her human wife, Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart).
