Today we feature our latest entry for the Who North America Doctor Who Cosplay Contest from Julie Barman of Daly City, Californiapresenting her Madame Vastra.

Julie Barman 1It started on a whim. There’s an annual Dickens Christmas Faire in my area that is meant to recreate Victorian London. It’s not unusual for Doctors to attend, and I was amused by the thought of Vastra, Jenny and Strax showing up there. Then I thought more about it and realized I’d love to cosplay Vastra because she is this wonderfully complex and powerful character. So I went for it.

Since I attend steampunk events, I already had the Victorian outfit. Getting a veil was a simple matter of purchasing a swath of black lace. The big challenge, of course, was the cowl and makeup. I found a company online that was selling the cowl, so I grabbed it and went to a theatrical makeup store for advice. The makeup is something I’m still working on perfecting.
