Ultimate Six Frock Coat -
this can only mean one thing

If you’ve been following the arrival of the fabrics for my Six Frock Coat, you’ll know I’m getting closer than ever.

So if I show you this photo - it can only mean one thing . . .

  2. Hi

    I'm in the process of putting together a 50th anniversary Doctor outfit, combining articles from every Doctor. It's going pretty well but I have hit a problem: every Doctor's coat is a signature item and dominates the costume. E.g. If I have Peter Davison's coat, I look like a 5th Doctor cosplayer with Who accessories ;)

    My solution is to make a coat which combines the necessary elements.

    I have a 3/4 length tuxedo coat I was using as a 1st Doctor coat.

    My intention is to use that as a base and then add elements of other Doctor's. For example, I'd like to add beige fabric to the lapels and cuffs (with red piping :)).

    I'm just wondering if this would work or look silly? Adding to the lapels / cuffs is one thing, adding to other areas seems more difficult.

    Part of me wonders if I should just commission a coat of unique design.

    Any advice? You can e-mail me at dth@oroborus.biz

    Thanks

    Dorian
