Doctor Who’s Idris Fabric for The Doctor’s Wife Cosplay

Hello everyone! As promised, there is still have a study of Wanda’s jacket on the way, and continuation of Tauriel’s wardrobe from The Hobbit. In the meantime however, I have switched gears to finish my own cosplays which we’ll detail soon, as this year, I am lucky enough to be meeting my best friend at Dragon Con!  I’ve never been, I’m super excited.

Anyway, while picking up some last minute items at Joann’s, this fabric (below) popped up in the brocade section. Immediately, it became clear that this is a wonderful stand-in for the pattern of Idris’s bodice from the Neil Gaiman episode of Doctor Who, ‘The Doctor’s Wife‘.

Scarlet Witch – Large Silver Ring at Old Navy


For those of you who asked me, the ring I found at old navy was still there yesterday.

In addition, I found some other rings that could serve as her left hand Index primary, the gold ring with the black disc.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Silver Bracelet Beads

Decided to go for a beaded string as the interpretation of the glimpses of a silver bracelet for scarlet witch avengers 2. Shown are some seed beads, top are 4mm Czech, bottom are 2mm Japanese. Might do a combination of both.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Hints of Green

Scarlet Witch from Avengers 2. While pondering fabrication tactics for her pendant and bracelet, I wondered why the choice of green that doesn’t appear anywhere else in her costume. Perhaps it’s the costumers nod to her relationship with The Vision, particularly in the green/gold bead on her main red bracelet.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Dress Construction

So back to Scarlet Witch’s black dress from Avengers 2.  In the previous post, the screen captures help outline the observable details, so let’s put all the notes together into a sketch to help better illustrate the dress’s basic construction. In addition, there are some thoughts at the bottom of the post on some patterns to help the construction process along.

I should preface all this with the statement that I am by no means a very good artist.

Tauriel Costume Study II – Scene Breakdown

Hello everyone.  As promised, I have a HD digital copy of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and upon a brief overview, it has become apparent (as to be expected) that a few of my assumptions were correct, and a few were WAY off.  That’s a good thing however, because discovery is the reason why i do these things!

Before launching into the nitty-gritty, this post is going to serve as a screen grab identification of each scene Tauriel appears in, allowing for the remaining posts in this series to be complete references of her timeline in the film.

Scarlet Witch Avengers 2 – Dress Details

I had started a series of entries to examine Scarlet Witch’s costume for the new Avengers 2 movie Age of Ultron, based on observations from leaked set photos.  In the previous entry, all her accessories, boots, braces and other small items are examined.  In this post, we’ll jump into the black dress she’s wearing.

Above we have the best photos with the most resolution released of the filming so far.  It gives a basic idea of the dress she’s wearing, and by examining a few details from other photos, we can get an idea as to its construction.

Scarlet Witch Black Bracelet Example

I recently made an entry regarding scarlet witches bracelet on her avenger 2 costume. The one main black bracket on her right hand had a very distinctive clasp. This bracelet (on the left) is one I bought from Hot Topic for around $4. While it has the same closure, it is probably not the same bracelet, however, it is a good example of the style of black bracelet she’s wearing for the film.

Scarlet Witch – Large Silver Ring

Little things like this make me happy. Apparently anyone who has any sense of style owns a large ring, but i do not. Found this beauty at Old Navy for $5, and it’s a very good substitute for Wanda’s.

It occurred to me as i was looking over the last post, that I did not include the many images i’ve collected to do this research.

Important Note: These images are not mine. They are sources from many different location across the net, and I don’t claim any as mine.
