Another year, another Doctor Who gathering. Last year's went over pretty well, so let's try and build upon that for this coming year, eh? I know I'll be bringing back good ol' 4th Doctor Tom Baker, who will the rest of you be going as?

Photoshoot time / location:

Friday 5:30pm at Loading Docks C

I'll come to take pictures though I don't think I'll have Ten or my husband's One finished in time with so much else going on this spring. If I have time, I maybe, MAYBE will have Diane Holmes from Torchwood done.

Reliable Sexy reporting in, for all of my loveable idiotic thieves~ ^^

Yep. I'm bringing back TARDIS. :D
It's a new design from last year, so I'm excited.

Alright, I have a sonic screwdriver to sell. It's the 3rd Doctor's that I used last year, but I cosplay the 4th so it was a little out of touch. I remember a 3rd Doctor arriving last year, and I assume that she would want the prop to complete the costume. But if anyone else would like to have a fully functioning 3rd sonic screwdriver, please message me for details.

Probably coming as Ten! Maybe, I also have an Ianto Jones costume but I'm not sure if I'll bring him or not. I would ADORE to have John Hart accomplished by then.

I've been considering a Rose cosplay, but I'm not sure yet. I'd have more incentive to do it if there was an official gathering though :)

I mentioned in the other DW thread that I will most likely be coerced into Amy Pond because of my hair. YAY! Might have others like Rory, Cpt Jack, possibly River.

Did anyone put any thought into a photoshoot for this year? I'd like to show, just need to make sure it doesn't clash with other popular shoots.

The deadline for the shoot is soon, right? Early or mid Feb? We should probably figure out a good day for it.

I know I need to save money this year but the desire to cosplay is too strong haha

I forgot how not fun it is to look for a wig. Ugh.

Also the deadline to submit a meeting time and stuff is Feb 18th so there's quite a bit of time. Is there a clear leader of this shoot? I'm still not sure I'll be cosplaying from it so it really can't be me haha

I'm bringing Rory. Just have to figure out which outfit, tho I know which one would be the most popular. I have one of his normal outfits with the poofy vest, nurse uniform with Ledworth Hospital badge, and Centurion.

My friends Katy & Carole will be running the shoot again this year, and I think they submitted it already. I'm poking them to come here & tell y'all the times, because I don't know them.

I'll likely be bringing my Ace, since I really don't think I'll get anything new done in time.

Didn't you also have a Romana as well? Either way, I didn't see them last year, and hope you'd come back for some quality pictures.

I do have a Romana, but I'm not certain I'm going to bring her this year. I have some fixes to make, and I've worn Romana for the fall Whoniverse shoot (where I got engaged!) and for Chicago TARDIS so I thought I'd give her a break & wear a newer costume.

I'm hoping I'll be able to sneak off for at least one of the shoot times but it all depends on my staffing duties. I'm Assistant Department Head this year, and I anticipate being a little more swamped with work this year.


Carole was cosplaying Ianto last year, and I just asked her for times. She put in for 5:30 on Friday and 4 on Saturday, at the loading docks again (because we're too popular to fit in any other space, alas).

So I'm pretty sure I'll be doing the outfit from Tooth and Claw. I've had the most luck finding some of the items for that one at cheaper prices. I can't afford to spend tons of money right now.

I'm more likely to be at the Friday shoot. I haven't finished any of my Whoniverse costumes yet and doubt I'll have time before ACEN with 8 other costumes to finish by the middle of May.

If it would be acceptable for me to do something off-canon, I have a costume I made for a shoot in December.

http://slythgeek.tum...panion-yeah-its
Though I've been improving it since the shoot to wear to cons. I made new pants with a neat houndstooth plaid, added a vest, and pimped out the sonic screwdriver a bit.

I just don't want to be, you know, shunned or anything, so I'll just come in an entirely unrelated costume to take pictures if that's the case.

Supergeekgirl - off-canon is entirely acceptable!! We're pretty open with our group. Heck, a couple of years ago we dragged a Sailor Moon into the midst of our shoot (and then converted her...and now she's helping run the shoot bwahahahaha!) :D Your costume actually looks really awesome, so please do bring it!

Could we, mayhaps, do a BBC shoot? ouo I mean, I know Doctor Who can get big but I am doubting there will be a Sherlock photoshoot this year.

I just bought my Rose boots and shirt for a grand total of $3.43. And I almost spent $18 on a shirt on ebay. That's what happens when you get too excited haha. If only I could choose the wig.

I'm trying to find the time for the shoot. Didn't see it on the list.

It looks like I'll have a Tux Ten ready! Not PERFECTLY accurate but alright.

NVM... okay, looks like I can make the Friday shoot but not Saturday because MGS has been scheduled right after. I am in charge of the MGS shoot and need a good 2-3 hours to change for that one.

So... since I only get one shoot, do I do my off-canon Twelve outfit or Tux Ten?

I suppose it depends on which one you like better or are more proud of. If you're looking to be recognized then Tux Ten would be better but if you don't care so much about that then the off-canon one is good.

When I told my friend I was cosplaying Rose without a Doctor she just kept saying "No one will know who you are why bother?" Well because I love the series and the outfit is cute. I don't need to be recognized. It's all up to you. *slightly unhelpful answer*
