I must have subconsciously wanted to do TARDIS Tuesdays for quite some time.
How else to explain the purchase of this fantabulously Tom Baker-esque scarf two years ago during Forever 21’s super-duper winter clearance? I still remember waffling between this beauty and a plaid number, this one winning out simply because it was less expensive than the other. Oh, sure, I was watching Doctor Who back then too, but I wasn’t sartorially inspired by the show and I certainly didn’t have cosplay on my radar.
Not to say I have cosplay on my radar now. My days of con attendance are long gone (although Aly did mention wanting to go to one someday, but I fear her fandoms are diametrically opposed to mine and she’d be better served going to cons with friends). And I probably can’t even call myself a “true Whovian” since I have never watched any of the episodes before the reboot with 9.
I am, however, the proud owner/operator of the TT linkup, and nu-Whovian status notwithstanding, I think this scarf fits the bill with frightening accuracy for something so unplanned, doesn’t it? And if that’s not enough to convince you of my linkup compliance, how about them deep blue velvet flared trousers? It’s very apropos to the era when Mr. Baker took his turn at being the Doctor.
All in all, I’m thoroughly satisfied with this look and can’t wait to see what the rest of you have to offer this week. Anything blue? Anything Doctor Who reminiscent? Pray tell…
