From Liz in Maryland:
As soon as I saw the DW Christmas special A Christmas Carol, I knew I had to make Abigail Pettigrew’s costume. I fell in love with the character Katherine’s voice and I connected with the charcater and since I sing as well, I had to! I love how sweet she is and her amazing outlook on life and that her voice is what saves the day. Before making the costume, I spent forever trying to gather pictures of this and analyzing the details in the outfit. I made the body of the dress, styled the wig, and altered the sweater. The cloak and the detailing on the dress were done by my friend Rachael as I was getting into a time crunch with this costume for an event. My favorite moment in this outfit was at Gallifrey One, a DW con in LA, when I sang Phantom of the Opera with a friend at karaoke.
You can still submit your entry for the BBC America Costume Contest until October 18th right over here.
p.s. Remember Abigail? She’s from a DW Christmas special (see below).
OMG. YOU GUYS. I AM ON THE DW OFFICIAL TUMBLR. YOU GUYS. EXCITEMENT ONLY BEING CONTAINED DUE TO THE FACT THAT I AM ON A BUS AT THE MOMENT.
RACHAEL, THANK YOU FOR MAKING THAT COSTUME WHAT IT IS, HOLY BAJESUS I CAN’T EVEN. WHEN ANDREA AND DEB TOLD ME I FLIPPED NOT UNLIKE WHAT I’M DOING NOW.
….Now I kinda wish I had planned it better for NYCC but I love my femme!Eleven and it was much MUCH more recognizable for a large con. And better to wear for longer. Also, damn they kept my whole paragraph!
Hhahhaa. I still want to kill that entire outfit for how annoying it was to make. But I’m glad it got you on their tumblr!!
