NerdyBound: Doctor Who Style

I’ve always been obsessed with fashion, but unfortunately growing up a nerd meant that those worlds never really collided. There has been a nerd movement though and the times they have changed. Girls are encouraged to let their geek flags fly high and with that comes a demand for our favorite nerdy obsessions to come tailor made for us. This has brought upon one of my favorite new trends, everyday cosplay. It’s like someone heard my cries that I want to play dress up every day of my life and hand delivered this lovely escape of the mundane even if just for a little while.

Throughout this series, I hope I can give you new ideas for your everyday cosplays, and if you’re new to this I hope to inspire you to try it out or to incorporate pieces into your personal style. There are so many designers and retailers out there that cater to our everyday cosplay side, and I know my friends and I get really excited when we find new nerdy fashion online, so I just want to showcase all of that in one place. One of my inspirations is my favorite everyday cosplay blog, DisneyBound. It makes me want to move states just to be closer to Disneyland so I can DisneyBound all the time. This blog definitely inspires my Disney style in a way that I can incorporate it into my day to day life and all I could think of is I need to make this exist for all of my fandoms. I want to make a blog that not only showcases nerdy fashion, but fashion that’s achievable to everyone. I need the pieces to be budget friendly and being a curvalicious girl, I need plus size options. So I came up with NerdyBound! I’m excited to interpret my favorite fandoms through fashion with you.

I want to begin with one of my all-time favorite shows and a force to be reckoned with in the everyday cosplay game, Doctor Who. There are so many options to choose from when it comes to Doctor Who and it’s a beautiful thing. I remember being in love with this show after I caught a marathon on the SyFy channel (back when it used to be SciFi) and feeling like the weird girl, because no one had heard of this show and when I tried to explain it to people they all just commenced to slowly back away from me. Now it’s everywhere and everyone understands how powerful and emotional and amazing this show is and it just makes me a happy girl. This set was styled around the Her Universe Doctor Who line. I’m obsessed with Her Universe! They offer the cutest nerdy fashion around, their styles are current with the new movies coming out, and my favorite, their sizes range from XS-4XL.

I have to start with the Tardis, without the Tardis this show wouldn’t even exist. I wanted to do a look that you could wear from a convention straight into a date or just to hang out with your friends. Something that says intergalactic casual, but chic.

 

Shop the Look: Tardis Dress $45, Stars Above Metallic Headband $25, to represent the Tardis flying through the stars, Double Ring Time Lord symbol in Gallifreyan $11.95 to represent the language of the Tardis, Vivienne Westwood GALAXY SLOUCHY PURSE $600, I know, I know, this bag is crazy expensive, but it’s also crazy awesome and worth it. I did find some budget friendly alternatives, thanks to Etsy. My favorite being these wristlets from Charming Prints Shop, they have beautiful galaxy prints that you can custom order onto purses or totes. $19, Converse All Star Red Glitter $26 (available at several retailers) in honor of my favorite time lord that stole her away.

Now for our favorite time lord: The Doctor.

Shop the Look: 9th Doctor Dress $40, Galaxy Turban Headband $8, FANTASTIC 9th Doctor – Handmade Plastic Brooch Pin $10, in case you haven’t noticed, I adore Etsy. It’s the perfect place to find one of a kind items, like this pin with 9’s favorite word FANTASTIC!, 9th Doctor Inspired Silver Charm and Crystal Bracelet $9.99 I love this charm bracelet, it reminds me of all of 9’s classic episodes, including my favorite The Empty Child: “Are You My Mummy?”, Small Lavender Purple Spike Ring $10, this Etsy shop makes such pretty and unique jewelry, I highly recommend looking at their other products. This ring has 9’s colors, it has a galaxy feel to it and the spike gives it that edge that reminds me a lot of when 9 is angry. Fitted Motorcycle Jacket $28 sizes S-XXL, the lapel on this jacket makes for a perfect modern version of 9’s jacket. Dune for the Day Wedge in Midnight Black $45

Shop the Look: 10th Doctor David Tennant Dress $35, ASOS Scallop Collar White Shirt $45 sizes 2-24, ASOS is another amazing retailer that offers their styles in plus sizes, their clothes are always ahead of the trends and stylish, Timey Wimey TARDIS Bow $10, this bow is my favorite, not only is it beautiful, but it lights up! It’s from Magical Ribbons all bows are handmade with the best quality materials. Magical Ribbons began on tumblr and they offer really pretty Disney inspired bows, Doctor Who 10th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver Necklace in UK Union Jack Gift Box $30, Vivienne Westwood GALAXY CHAIN PURSE $300, another version of the crazy expensive purse, but I just love this collection so much. Here’s the link to the budget friendly alternative from Charming Prints Shop, they have beautiful galaxy prints that you can custom order onto purses or totes. $19, Maxstar 777 Back Zipper TC Wedge Heel Shoes $44, Tennant changes his outfit and converse shoes throughout the series, the red converse are more iconic, but I wanted to stay true to the dress which features his brown pinstriped suit which he pairs with white converse.

Shop the Look: Eleventh Doctor Dress $28, Fezstravanganza Mini Fez $20, Forever 21 Faux Crystal Midi Ring Set $6.90, Doctor Who “The Girl Who Waited” Bracelet $15, Forever 21 Cutout Geo Bangle Set $6.90, I really wanted to find a Doctor Who themed stackable bracelet set, but instead I found this beautiful mixed metal set that would go perfectly with “The Girl Who Waited” bracelet, Doctor Who Wristlet Pond Goodbye $25, Galaxy Digital Sublimation Print Anarchic Combat Boot $81

I did two looks for 11 mainly because I happened upon this awesome shirt:

Men’s Doctor Who Shirt Tie and Braces T-Shirt from BBC Worldwide $58 sizes S-XXL, it annoys me that the colors are wrong, but it has a pretty cool feature that reveals a two beating hearts image using a smart phone or tablet and that meant that I needed to own this, ASOS Shorts with Belted Waist Detail $36 sizes 1-14, Here’s the plus size option: Knotted Wait Shorts, Mock Suspender Tights $10.86 sizes Medium – XXXL, I’m in love with the faux garters trend in tights, they can make the most casual/lazy outfit instantly edgy and sexy, Van Gogh Inspired Elastic Headband $10, if you didn’t cry during the Van Gogh episode, you have no soul, Mod Cloth Boho Spaced Haute Ring $20, Mod Cloth Quirky, Scholastic Undeniable Star Quality Bracelet $20, I love you (Circular Gallifreyan) Doctor Who Adjustable Bracelet $15.95, Doctor Who Hello Sweetie- Purse Skirt for Thirty-One Skirt Purse $20, in honor of The Doctor’s wife River Song an adorable Hello Sweetie/Hello Kitty purse, Jeffrey Campbell ‘Doppler’ Water Resistant Rain Boot $84.95

Her Universe is amazing and offers villain cosplay as well. They offer this Dalek dress in other colors and in a bodycon style as well. I thought it’d be fun to style the Dalek cosplay as a special occasion high end look. I tried to find structured pieces with a lot of clean geometric lines, so the essence of a Dalek who’s all business and very serious would be conveyed.

 

Shop the Look: Red Dalek Aline Dress $45, Kitsch Chevron Bun Pin $24, Balmain Embellished Blazer $2,850 I had a vision in my mind of a perfectly tailored blazer with gold studded accents and I could not for the life of me find a budget friendly option. I think this look is easily achievable with a simple DIY project; I’m planning on buying a simple black blazer and adding my own stud detail to it. I’ll post photos on the blog of the outcome, Gold Dalek Brooch $24, Doctor Who Gallifrey Symbols Brass Cuff Bracelet $30, Black Gold Spike Flat Shoes $28

I think I might have to do a villains post, because there’s so many more Doctor who villains I’d like to do Nerdy Bound’s for. There are definitely many more options within the world of Doctor Who, like the companions and friends of the Doctor, but we’ll save those for later. Doctor Who even has an entire bath products line; you could nerdy bound your entire bathroom shower caddy and all. They even have pajamas so you’re set for every time of the day. The possibilities are endless. Feel free to send in requests for Nerdy Bounds. I hope you’re inspired to have fun with your style.

Review – Doctor Who: The 11th Doctor #9

DOCTOR WHO: THE ELEVENTH DOCTOR #9
STORY BY: Al Ewing
ART BY: Boo Cook
COLOR BY: Hi-Fi
COVER A BY: Boo Cook
PUBLISHER: Titan Comics
PAGECOUNT: 32
COVER PRICE: $3.99
RELEASE DATE: Wednesday, March 4, 2015

I just finished reading “Serve You,” a story from the 11th incarnation of the Doctor. He still with his companion Alice, who’s dealing with the loss of her mother, and an alien life form known as Arc. Since their last adventure, Arc has been in a catatonic state and keeps himself in a ball like shape. Added to the mix is Jones, a singer of sorts.

They’re all traveling to see a character known as the Overseer. He’s done something to Alice, and she wants vengeance. Now normally this isn’t something the Doctor would condone, but apparently he’s working out a plan, and they’ll be on their way as soon as possible.

The gang arrives at Serve You Corp where the Doctor informs a receptionist that he now owns fifty-one percent of the company, and wants to see the CEO. After some back and forth she finally agrees, and sends the Doctor up the elevator. Alice and Arc definitely see that something is up and tell the Doctor it’s a bad idea, but we all know the Doctor! He just tells them he will be fine.

After the doors close, the trio turns around to see zombie like characters coming after them blocking all the exits. Alice pleads with Arc to help save them. Arc, sensing that they might be stuck, springs to action, and gets them out of there. They are quickly running to the Tardis, only to have it disappear in front of their very eyes.

Hopefully the Doctor is able to save the day again. Fingers crossed for this adventure.

The conclusion of the Infinite Astronaut was amazing and sad all at once.  I thoroughly enjoyed the read.

The centuries long battle was silenced all at the brilliance of a human, and not the Doctor.  His human companion, Alice, was faced with the task of ending the conflict once and for all.

The story left off with the Doctor and Alice in the Infinite Library trying to end the war between the two species fighting above Earth. When Alice evoked the right of the Infinite Astronaut, she and only she was able to accomplish the task. Without the help of the Doctor or the TARDIS, she summoned all her courage and went through the gate of creation. Despite the odds being stacked against her due to the fact that no one had ever returned from this task, Alice knew that she had to complete this in order to save the Earth. After witnessing for herself what happened to the previous ships that had gone through, not wanting to return to the heartache and war on the other side, Alice again made the bold choice to return through the gate and help to end the centuries old war.

New Two-Part “11th Doctor” Doctor Who Comics Story Arc

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #7
STORY BY​: ​Rob Williams
ART BY​: ​Warren Pleece
COVER A BY: ​Mariano Laclaustra
PUBLISHER​: ​Titan Comics
PAGECOUNT​: ​32
COVER PRICE​: ​$3.99
RELEASE DATE​: ​Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Being an avid Doctor Who fan, I was excited to get to review this issue. In the words of the 9th Doctor it, I would rate this issue, “Fantastic!”

11th Doctor Preview Page 1 11th Doctor Preview Page 2 11th Doctor Preview Page 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The issue starts with the Doctor arriving on earth at the same time as an intergalactic war is waging just above the planet. They have sworn not to harm us, and so the humans take up seats to watch the lights in the sky. The Doctor however has other plans (you know how he likes saving us even if we don’t see that there could be danger.) The ending of the issue has an interesting twist that reminded me of a 10th Doctor episode in “Army of Ghosts”, but you’ll have to read it to know what I mean. Sorry, I can’t give to much away.

I’m excited for the second installment as the issue left me hanging…with the Doctor being cornered…as he usually is.
