Unless your superpower is to change your hair length at will, you will probably start looking for a nice Clara-style wig at some point during your cosplay endeavours. Because I love Clara’s S9 haircut and my hair colour is similar to Clara’s, I usually wear a shoulder-length bob that goes very well with Clara’s S9 wardrobe. However, that always means that to convincingly cosplay S7 and S8 Clara, I need wigs. Over the years, I’ve tried multiple wigs from different places – all of them very affordable – so I can now give you a few recommendations that will go very well with your Clara wardrobe without breaking the bank.
Item: Jigsaw Bib & Tap Blouse
Appearance: The Snowmen
Combined with: Whistles Mim Tencel Shorts in navy, Urban Outfitters Deena & Ozzy Red Satchel, F-Troupe Vintage Watch Bracelet, Topshop Gold Multi-Chain Cross Bracelet, Whistles Rana Double Chord Friendship Bracelet.
I consider myself very lucky that my favourite convention takes place in October when the weather is usually mild to cool because most of Clara’s clothes are suitable for cooler weather. But what about that very cool summer convention you want to go to? I’ve compiled a nice list of Clara Oswald’s best summer outfits for you to wear at conventions during the hot months.
Item: Claudie Pierlot Brooklyn Top
Appearance: Sleep No More, Radio Times Photoshoot
Combined With: Claudie Pierlot Soline Skirt, GAP Merino Jumper in Navy, &Other Stories Monk Strap Boots, Topshop / ASOS / H&M / River Island Triangle Necklace.
As seen in a recent Instagram post from another cosplayer (check out cutelionesspics), the Miss Patina Pinafore is currently back in stock on the website. However, the current batch is made out of different fabric. The check pattern is no longer yellow/beige but red and the base is black instead of navy. If you’re looking for a close alt, the Pinafore is currently still available in all sizes, but it’s not the SA one. I’ll add a screenshot under the cut so you can see it for yourself. The product photos on the website, however, still show the SA beige check pattern.
Item: Topshop Studded Leather Jacket
Appearance: Name of the Doctor
Combined With: un-IDed red-white dotted blouse, un-IDed belt, un-IDed blue denim knot top, black jeans, un-IDed earrings
