At C2E2 last April, my friends and I collaborated to make one of our dream cosplay groups a reality: a full group of genderbent Doctors! Doctor Who is a series that is close to all of our hearts, and naturally, we got to thinking of how the show would be different if the Doctor was a woman. We all picked our favorite Doctor and came up with a genderbent interpretation - it was so incredible to see everything come together!
I have to give a shoutout to these amazing ladies. All of them are so passionate about costuming and fandom, and they really put their hearts into making this group happen. I felt so honored being able to spend the day surrounded by my closest friends, celebrating a series that has done so much for science fiction and geek culture as a whole.
Not to mention being dressed as female Doctors felt so empowering. We had several people come up to us on the convention floor and tell us how inspired they were to see a male cultural icon like the Doctor represented by a woman instead. And that, I think, is one of the highest compliments any cosplayer can receive; that a costume inspired and empowered someone else. It was hugely flattering to hear and I found myself tearing up several times throughout the day.
This was, by far, one of the most amazing cosplay experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I love everyone in this TARDIS!
I’m especially in love with that Three!
Oh, I’m sorry, I’m just busy hyperventilating
These are amazing! Makes me want to cosplay all/or some of the doctors even more!
