Hello! I’m Lauren. I’m starting this community as a little way to review and organise my Doctor Who cosplay collection (because I do so like to put things in order!) and also as a resource for others, whether you’re a long-time collector or new.
When I started collecting a few years ago many others were already in full swing and there was a lot of information out there – and still is. However, some of it is now out of date. Creators of lists moved on to other things, and since then there’s been new discoveries, costumes, or corrections. Given the amount of help so many collectors gave me when I started out this is my way of giving back, and contributing something extra to the community.
I’m primarily an Amy Pond collector. My dream situation is to have all her things, and I’m chipping gradually away at that goal. I also collect Clara but only the items that I like; and occasionally other companion gear if I fancy it. I might include a few of these pieces as we go on, but I’ll mainly be concentrating on Amy’s stuff.
Something to keep in mind is that we all have different body types, so when I’m reviewing something I’m only doing it with my own shape in mind. For the record, I’m a UK10-12, 5’7 tall and around a 34F in the bust. So quite different than Karen, which means that not all of Amy’s stuff fits me the same way.
Use of images. Images of individual costume pieces are of items in my collection, and were taken by me, unless otherwise specified. These images are the ones of clothes on hangers and watermarked costumes on mannequins.
