Honourable Mentions

Aloysius’s Favorite Doctor Cosplay – phoebepiper as the Sixth Doctor

Until recently I dismissed the Sixth Doctor as much as most of the fandom, but after seeing Colin Baker at DragonCon this year I developed a new appreciation for what he was trying to do with the role and how artistic differences with the show’s producer led to the mess that occurred. I think that cosplaying the Sixth Doctor is a brave choice, and I feel that phoebepiper has done an excellent job; plus that mischievous smile won me over 🙂

Aloysius’s Favorite Companion Cosplay – Hanah Tikvah as Ace

Some will already know that Hanah and I have been friends for several years now as a result of the Cincinnati Steampunk scene, but that does not play a part in my choice; the truth is that back in the day I really liked Ace as a character. She is tough with a tom-boy like personality, and an obsession with explosives, but her appearance and clothing are still gentle and feminine. Ace is scrappy and never afraid to rush head long into an adventure, and she’s a bit of a punk 🙂

Aloysius’s Favorite Villain & Ally Cosplay – Julie Barman as Madame Vastra

It’s no secret that I greatly admire strong women and strong female characters such as River Song, Ace, and Madame Vastra. Her Victorian style coupled with her knowledge and use of advance technology places her as one of the prominent “Steampunk” characters of the Doctor Who universe, and second only to Jack Harkness she is the show’s prominent advocate for sexual orientation equality. A lot of work has gone into Julie’s costuming, and she has succeeded with the hard task of prosthetics and make up to capture Vastra’s reptilian features 🙂
