    “The Idiot’s Lantern” is one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes. If you aren’t careful, you’re going to get your face sucked off by the television! Rose’s outfit is fun and flirty, ready to see an Elvis concert. You don’t have to guess if she and the Doctor made it to their original destination. (Do they ever?)

    I hand sewed all the sequins on the bodice while watching Netflix. The jacket is the correct style TopShop Moto Jacket, but started in white cotton. I had to dye it and then hand paint/dye the elastic bits. As you see, I didn’t quite get the right color. What a bummer. I have yet to find the perfect sunglasses for this costume. I have a pair of pink cat-eyes glasses, but they really aren’t hitting the mark. The search continues for the glasses as well as the correct shoes. But until that day, my rhinestone decorated peep-toe pumps will fill in.
