I’m making 1:6 scale versions of two of my favorite Doctor Who characters, Jo Grant and Carol Bell. In my universe, they’re a couple who end up flying around time and space, notable for embodying the groovy spirit of the Seventies, whatever that is. They play to people’s expectations by rotating through endless closets of flamboyant period clothes. This is all hilarious because neither of them are fashionable…or they weren’t when they lived in the 1970s. But now they’re totally groovy!!
I went through the paper dolls that I saw at the last VTDL meetup and selected outfits that I thought would work for Jo and Carol.
Outfits for Jo. When choosing clothes for her, I went for short and/or tight and/or loud, but overall a bright and femmey style. She likes tailored details and trims and patterns!
Outfits for Carol. When choosing clothes for her, I went for a comparatively muted palette, pants over skirts/dresses, simple tailoring over decorated, and a uniform/military influence.
