hey thee! thanks so much for following me and I would just like to say welcome to the crazy family :)
Crazy? Nah, we’re just… Well, yeah who are we all trying to kid. We’re fandom loving, eat insanity for breakfast, I wouldn’t know normal if the Doctor drove the Impala through Hogwarts kinda bat shit crazy.
I’M CRY I’M SO IN LOVE WITH MR CLEVER IT WORRIES ME. BUT LIKE I’M WATCHING IT WITH LIZ RIGHT NOW AND FUCKING WHENEVER CLEVER IS ON SCREEN I JUST FUCKING GO BONKERS AND FUCKING. FUCK. YOU DON’T FUCKING KNOW HOW MUCH OF A LADY BONER I HAVE RIGHT NOW. HE’S SO FUCKING HOT. I AM FUCKING. FUCK. FUCKING CLEVER IS A FUCKING LIFE RUINER. FUCKING CYBER-PLANNER. I HATE HIS FUCKING GUTS. F U C K.
So, I just had someone say to me that after meeting me at a con they were hesitant to introduce themselves, because they thought I was “intimidating” because they thought I was transgender and didn’t know how to address me.
Um, I’m flattered that my crossplay was effective ( i think??? not sure what to make of her statement honestly) but seriously… I thought the word HELLO was universal.
Like, why can’t you just go up to someone and say ” Hi, my name is X, I like your costume.”
Is that so hard? Why the fear???? Seriously!!!! I have so many friends from all walks of life, colors, races, genders, sexual orientation, etc etc literally. I don’t even get why someone would be afraid or hesitant.
What? I’m THE Mr. Clever cosplayer? *faints, revives self, faints again. Trips over open jaw…
Yes! THE! Certainly the only one I’ve seen around here. I see you now and then on the Doctor Who cosplay tag now and…
Well, I admire people like yourself that have the confidence to try different characters! I’m too self conscious, too afraid, too idk! I look at people like you and some of my other friends, especially whovians, that can literally, like you said, bounce around from character to character, and I’m like “wtf? How do you do it so effortlessly?”. I tried. I did! I tried for years to find a character that I could just “be”. I’m not an actor, not really a cosplayer, seriously I have the ONE costume!!! LoL I can’t “get into character” like most cosplays can. (Which when I think about how many people tell me I do a great Clever, not sure what that says about me as a person!!! Lolololololololol) Idk. I think cosplay is such a wonderful form of fun, expression, art, social freedom. I was soooooooooo terrified at first. I was the last of my friends to go to cons, cosplay etc. Aaaaaand I just totally babbled on didn’t I? Haha I love talking DW! Omg you can call me whatever you want. I’ve been called worse than Lisa, trust me. Thanks for the compliments! Means the world to me. And I looooove your purple frock coat 11. It fits you nicely!!!!!!!
Oh thank you! It’s my favorite outfit of his. It feels like that Doctor growing up, stylistically. And it’s still more uncommon on con floors than the old tweed blazer, so I think it tends to be a crowd-pleaser.
But hey, listen, don’t think that anything’s wrong with you because your style or methodology doesn’t quite match other cosplayers. These things take time to develop and it usually STARTS with just one that you can love and master. Then who knows? The possibilities are endless. I think you have a bright future as a cosplayer if you want it. :)
Yeah I agree. I do love the purple as well. And it is so different, and it does stand out, and well, I love purple. It either rooks great on someone or not so much. I love it!
I’ll have to check out your other pics in the tweeds.
