Doctor Who thing: a frock coat cool enough for a Time Lord, but made for a Time Lady
Last year, chick cosplayers got a 10th Doctor coat cut to fit a woman. Now, ThinkGeek has done the same with the 11th Doctor’s coat. Check it out:
ThinkGeek tells us:
Fabulous frock coats were popular in early Doctor Who, so we’re glad to see they’re making a comeback with Matt Smith’s Doctor. We’ve always thought frock coats were flattering, possibly partially because of the silhouette, which Wikipedia describes as involving “a high degree of waist suppression.” We’re all about suppressing our waists without skimping on the Jelly Babies and Jammie Dodgers. (They’re basically fruit, right?)
The waist is even more tapered on this frock coat, because it’s been tailored specifically for women. And it’s purple, because there’s no need to go traipsing across space and time in a boring color. Maybe not as vibrant as the Sixth Doctor, either. This is a nice compromise.
So yes. Same purple frock coat modeled on the Eleventh Doctor’s with corduroy collar. Same lovely tweed. You supply your own soufflé and Daleks.
At $400, it’s even less cheap than the 10th Doctor coat. But it is made of cashmere and wool, so it should feel nice and be toasty warm. Next winter is coming…
