It’s 2089. all cops have been replaced by genetically modified dogs that let children pet them, help old ladies cross the street, chase down criminals, never eat donuts, bark at cat-callers, analyze dna, easily track down murders, pee on white collar criminals, and tear the faces off of rapists. utopia has been reached.
How was this accomplished you ask?
Well its simple
Dogs are colorblind
So is nobody going to talk about the fact that Strax was about to shoot himself in the face to save everyone?
THIS WAS FUCKING DARK AS FUCK!
THIS WAS THE DARKEST MOMENT IN AN EPISODE THAT FEATURED A HOT AIR BALLOON MADE OUT OF HUMAN SKIN!
#and a reminder that sontarans aren’t after personal glory #it was always for the glory of the sontaran empire right? #well strax’s new empire is jenny and vastra #and that is beautiful #and makes this whole thing super painful #and reminds us that strax isn’t just a comic character
Cosplay Couture interpretation of the 9th Doctor

Location: UWA, Engineering
Nine is a far trickier Doctor to convey as the simple costume isn’t quite as iconic and doesn’t immediately conjure up a setting. We opted for a more urban, industrial look to contrast with the softness and whimsy of Eight. Nine is a badass, so this was about making Courtney look as masculine and badass as possible and finding rough and interesting textures to frame them with.
As Luke said, Nine’s challenge comes from having to work with such minimalism, but what sets him apart from the other Doctors is his attitude. It was all about channelling that intensity and darker quality that was unique to him. Designing the costume actually turned out to be more fun than I expected, it forced me to think in much subtler terms, I looked less at structure and more at texture.
