Doctor Who Idris Cosplay by Timestitcher Doctor Who Idris Cosplay by Timestitcher
I think Idris is done. I'm shorter waisted than my dressform, and will be wearing it with a corset, but this should give the idea.

So much angst over this one, and more than one "I CAN'T DO IT!' exclaimed in the process. In the end, I'm happy with where I ended up given my budget and experience.

Layers in the final wearing will be corset, bustle, petticoat, skirt, bodice, hipscarf. I hope we get a temperature drop! Oh, almost forgot, I left slits in the skirt so I can wear a pair of pockets. Let's hear it for hands free convention going!

Anyway, the only fabrics not dyed are the silk ruffles, and they were shredded. The petticoat was dyed and painted. The base skirt started out as a well-loved, tan, gored, silk skirt that I imperfectly dyed blue then cut up. The hipscarf began as a royal blue thirft shop skirt that I tore apart and let sit in a bleach bath. The white chantilly lace was dyed ecru, then overdyed in teal/gray and finally hit with a copper Shiva paintstick for details.

For distressing I use one of those wire file brushes that people use on dance shoes. Shreds the fabric in no time.

The bodice details are in a separate picture.

Steal away! Yes, Idris is the soul of the Tardis.  Also, buried in past posts I have a few closeups and details on how I did some of the pieces if it will help you.  Go forth and create!!

Thank you so much! I swore a lot over this one, but learned a lot too. The only way to learn, I've found, is to pick a project, jump in blindly and dog your way through it. Then again, I've been told I'm a fool. :D

I envy you your skill! I'm not sure I could give up a well loved skirt or anything even if it was going to be used as part of another dress etc....

Thanks. This particular skirt was so well-loved that it had become unwearable. The waistband was shot, the silk was shattering in places and everything was just tired. Not good for public wearing, but great as a base for a distressed garment.
