The thing I love about Cosplay: imagination is the most important thing. Over the years I've seen amazing costumes of self invented characters. But even when cosplaying a famous character, it's the thought that counts. Your own spin on a character, but with enough likeness to get a reaction from fellow Geeks.
Which is thé Doctor Who scarf?
One of my Geeklings needed a new scarf, so I thought about the famous Doctor Who scarf. But which one?! There doesn't seem one original, so I didn't really know which version to pick. But then I found a Osgood pattern on Pinterest. I decided to translate the colors to the wool I actually had.. which aren't the precise ones.
The Geeklings version
I made a quick drawing for myself, to remember the order of the colors. And made the scarf on a loom, because I can't knit well. It was meant as a practical kids scarf, so it couldn't be too long. The question is, does it still look like a Osgood scarf? I'm not sure, I might make another one with correct colors. I still like this one though , and it's almost spring. So another one will have to wait till next year. :-)
