The Doctor Will See You Now - Outfits Inspired by Doctor Who; 9th Doctor / TARDIS

Eccleston and The TARDIS
 It's no secret that I love Doctor Who, and all things that are Whovian. I have been sitting on this idea for a series for a while but today I really decided to go for it!! This is an inspiration board I created on Polyvore, where I tried to combine both the 9th incarnation of the Doctor, and the TARDIS into one easy to wear outfit. Nobody need know you are cosplaying in this outfit! 

The 9th Doctor, played for one season by Christopher Eccleston was my least favourite incarnation of The Doctor, but the more I watch his season, the more I am growing to like what Eccleston brought to the iconic English show. His Doctor was very human, caring and had laugh-out-loud funny moments!

With that said, he didn't really win any popularity contests with the fans and was replaced after one season by David Tennant. Still, Eccleston was a great man for the job and his season will always be one of my favourites! 

On To The Outfit!!

"9" was always seen in a leather jacket, an element which is easy to emulate in this outfit. Penney's are doing beautiful faux leather jackets -similar to the Alexander McQueen one below- for under €30! The blue dress, which pays homage to the iconic blue TARDIS, is bold yet understated, allowing it to be the centre of the outfit, and the centre of attention, while still being as inconspicuous as the TARDIS was itself! A pair of black over the knee socks and heeled chelsea boots finish off this outfit and remain faithful to the simple aesthetic of the 9th Doctor. I topped off this outfit with a chunky black agate necklace to add some boldness while still trying to maintain the simplicity of 9's look. 

When it comes to make-up for this look, it really is up to you, though I would incline towards a soft smokey eye and a nude lip, you could really opt for anything, just keep it muted. Nail-wise I went for this gorgeous Deborah Lippmann polish which is blue with chunky glitter reminiscent of stars. A spritz of Thierry Mugler's Alien perfume and you're all set! 

NOTE: I know that the Sonic Screwdriver is 11's but I couldn't find a decent quality image of 9's for the life of me! 

"You were absolutely fantastic, and you know what? So was I!" - 9th Doctor.
