Happy Halloween 2016 from Under A Tin Roof!
"Think you've seen it all? Think again. Outside those doors, we might see anything. We could find new worlds, terrifying monsters, impossible things. And if you come with me... nothing will ever be the same again!"
Okay, so if you haven't already guessed what Tad and my Halloween costumes are this year, we're the 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler from Doctor Who! I bet you wouldn't have guessed that I even watch this show, but I do, quite religiously. I suppose that I forget our readers know only a smidge about my personal character, but just like all fun people, I am filled with depth! LOL! But seriously. I love Doctor Who and various other fandoms!
Though Tad is still too small to really get into watching the show, I figured now is the perfect time to dress him in this costume because he can't pick, and isn't a tiny Doctor not the cutest thing you've ever seen?! And he loves carrying around the Sonic Screwdriver. Everyone wins! Full Disclosure: Here are a bunch of photos of Tad looking ridiculously cute and me looking like an idiot.
This was definitely a show, when introduced by a friend, that I had no interest in watching. It was corny, the special effects were horrible, and half of the time I couldn't understand what anyone was saying. After a few episodes, I was hooked. They say your doctor is the first actor you watch portray the character. For me, that was Christopher Eccleston (the 9th Doctor), who I enjoyed, but I fell in love with David Tennant's interpretation. He was quirky, dry-humored, and above all filled emotions that needed healing. A real teen heart-throb (me being the teen, not him...) and also he's Scottish. Bonus points. And not to mention Rose! The one true love of the Doctor's life. As you can see, perfect costumes.
If this is something you want to create next year, it's super easy! I ordered most of our costume pieces off of Amazon (Tad's suit, the Sonic Screwdriver Toy, My wig(which was like $10, hence the hat covering the AWFUL threading)). I thrifted the rest of my outfit, already had the boots. We did have to make some alterations to Tad's little suit and made the red tie out of scrap linen. We considered making the screwdriver out of cardboard, but figured he would enjoy having the toy on hand later anyway. It was cheap to make and fun to interpret! We would love to see what you went as for Halloween this year! Let us know in the comments or feel free to send us a picture.
