Last weekend, I joined photographer Jeff Stanford on a walk around Downtown Frederick, Maryland, dressed in full Doctor Who cosplay. I’m continuing to explore what cosplay means to me and what it’s place is in my life. I don’t really have firm answers for either of those questions/thoughts, but I thought a photo shoot on a sunny, slightly less brisk winter day (though admittedly not warmer by much) sounded like a good idea.
Here are the results.
Ten is my Doctor. Obviously. I admit, however, that when I saw the above photo, it was impossible for me to ignore that I look more like Matt Smith. That said, I may cosplay the Eleventh doctor at some point in the future, but for the time being, I’m sticking with Ten. The photo ends up creating a fascinating hybrid of the two doctors (i.e. Ten’s brown suit, blue screwdriver and hairstyle doing a quintessential Eleven pose). After all, they are all the same man.
We tackled a few classic Tennant poses.
It was a good day, no?
