Samantha Goes Cosplaying

Posted in Uncategorized

For weeks, Bronywn Green has been telling me, “I wish I could tell you about your Christmas present, because you’re going to love it!” She also said stuff like, “Do you have any yarn left over from your Doctor Who scarf?” and “You know that jacket you wore for your steampunk Doctor costume?”

Well, this past Saturday, I found out what was up.

Some of you may remember my American Girl doll, Samantha, who was gifted to me by a magic candy lady. The doll has become my unofficial mascot among my friends. They even made a movie trailer about her. She came with me to Authors After Dark in Charlotte, where I wore my steampunk 4th Doctor genderswap cosplay:

 

So, Bronwyn (being how she is) made an exact replica of my costume for Samantha, right down to 10’s sneakers. She even hand-sculpted a replica of River Song’s sonic to go with it:

The very best gifts are heartfelt, obsessive, and bordering on disturbed. Now, whenever I cosplay as the steampunk 4th lady Doctor, I have to bring Samantha with me.

    As someone who works for American Girl and has a deep love of Doctor Who, I fully support Sam being a cosplayer.

  5. The costume turned out so well. I think I must have missed out on that video before, but that was hilarious. Poor Samantha. So mistreated.

    That is such an amazing gift idea- and it turned out so well! I’ve been toying with the idea of making one of those scarves as well…

    All the good Doctors had awesome companions. Glad to see you will, too, now!
