Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

My initial thought was something like this:



but I would also rather like to see him in something warm and summery like this drawing I did a few years back for a theoretical 13th doctor:



But now I'm beginning to lean towards something kind of 60s or 70s. An aging man who is trying to grab at some youthfulness by appropriating a hip younger style that he is too out of touch to realize is terribly out of date (though perhaps actually ahead of its likely immediate resurgence). Something like THESE perhaps.

With so many comparisons to the 1st doctor I could see the 12th doctor wearing something like Hartnell.

Capaldi even did the "suit tug" thing the 1st doctor did during the reveal show.

I definitely get Hartnell vibes off that picture. Seeing Capaldi like that, I half expect him to end every second sentence with "hmmm?"
He's even got that inquisitive arrogant smirk of Hartnell Doctor, in that pic

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I wouldn't be surprised if they intentionally copy but update the 1st doctor's seasons

Different stories but feeling like classic Hartnell.


Heck some stories are lost. It wouldn't hurt to do the lost stories since most people never saw them or forgot them.

Now that you mention it, imagine if twelve's suit plays up Capaldi's Rock band past



Imagine Twelve wearing that.

That's precisely the sort of thing I meant actually! There's another dad at my kids' school, much the same age as myself, maybe older (I'm 41) and he wears stuff like that. First day I saw him, he had pants hanging down his ass. I have wanted to beat him to death with my bare hands ever since.
It's odd, because on the one hand I think he'll be very smart and elegant (face it to some degree or another 9,10 and 11 have been every so slightly scruffy) but on the other hand I keep getting a slightly punk image in my head around Capaldi. Not talking safety pins or anything, I can just see a fairly traditional Victorian/Edwardian Doctor look that's offset by something very in your face.
I can't agree that Tennant's look as scruffy at all, his suits and coats were always clean, unlike say the second Doctor who had no problems getting muddy and even wearing out the knees on his pants at times. Eccleston had a workering class look and Smith's look was more of a middle class look. But I agree and I've said as much Capaldi would return to the Edwardian look.
Being honest I think a lot of it with Tennant comes down to the hair, but although he wears a suit I recall it looking quite crumpled from time to time (hardly surprising given the jacket was made from the material of the trousers so it is slightly more lightweight than a regular suit would be. Throw in the converse trainers, the fact his tie was rarely straight, and the fact he was a bit stubbly at times and I still stand by scruffy. As for Smith, with him again it’s the hair sometimes, but also his lower half, however smart his upper half is, in the first two and a half series he was wearing very scruffy trousers and boots.

I think all three modern Doctors have had great looks and looks that worked for them, but smart isn’t a word I’d associate with them (and yes you could argue that over time the Doctor has maybe been scruffier more often than suave)

I think Colin Baker adopted some of those mannerisms too.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I don't care as long as there is a regular hat involved.

no hats, I think Smith's done that now (I appreciate it isn't a regular hat but still...)

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I actually think the Twelfth Doctor's outfit shouldn't look too different from what Capaldi wore in the reveal show, but with one little subtle item that adds a bit of eccentricity to it (like a particular colored tie or perhaps a bit of piping around the jacket).

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I'd love to see the twelfth Doctor wear something similar to what David Bowie wore in "Fire Walk With Me".

Nope, not enough. I want more.

Most Doctors had at least one reoccurring hat and I think that's a tradition that should continue.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

"Most"? Hmm, that's debatable.

Hartnell had that black cap in the first episode and only a few times wore a panama type hat.

Pertwee briefly donned a black fedora in "Spearhead..." and then nothing.

I don't remember Colin EVER wearing a hat.

McGann, no hat, but his is the 'special case' for most conditions.

Eccleston didn't wear a hat.

Tennant, he wore a a straw hat in one scene in his final story when he visited the Ood's homeworld.

Smith, well, we remember the fez and the stetson mainly because River shot both of them, but he didn't wear them on a regular basis.

Troughton, Tom, Davison and McCoy, were the only ones to wear hats on any kind of regularity.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Hmm, juat had a thought, and whilst it would mean putting Capaldi in a suit, it would be different. How about a Nehru style jacket? Might give him a myasterious air, although it might also make him look a little like a Bond villain...but is that a bad thing?

Well, Troughton didn't really: he wore That Bloody Hat (as it's officially known - yes it is, don't tell me otherwise) in his first three stories but never later; apart from that there's just a woolly bobble hat in Fury from the Deep. Hartnell wore his fur hat or the panama a lot more than that!

Although, it could be neat to have him trying one on in the scene where he's selecting his new outfit.
