A Slight Change in Direction

An Adventure With Ties In Space Header

Hello chums!

First of all, allow me to say thank you to all of you who read my blog, either through subscribing, or by stumbling across it – it really does mean a lot.

Secondly, I’d just like to make all you lovely folks aware of the slight direction shift the blog will be going through…

When I originally dreamt this little project up I did so after coming up with the title; having always been a geek with a love of good clothes, I’ve often sported looks similar to those featured on the blog. That said, my geekiness doesn’t stop at my love of Doctor Who and I doubt yours does either.

The more eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that I’ve been creating look-books based on other sci-fi and pop culture characters more and more frequently lately; this is mainly due to running out of Doctor Who related looks (though more will be coming, I promise you!) and partly down to the fact that, what with no Doctor Who this year, new inspiration is scarce.

These reasons are what’ve inspired me to openly change the focus of the blog to include, not just Doctor Who, but all of pop culture and sci-fi. This means you’ll be seeing look-books from farther afield.

Be sure to leave me any suggestions, either in the comments or via Twitter (@AAWTIS) and let me know what sorts of content you’d like to see in the coming months.

Don’t panic, the blog will still look and feel the same, same name, same design, same nerd writing it – just a wider range of focus!

Thanks guys, lots of exciting things to come.

Hall13doctorsello and welcome to this first introductory post on “An Adventure With Ties In Space” – this blog is a bit of fun designed to give you inspiration for looks and outfits inspired by the Doctor.

Whether your favourite incarnation is Hartnell, Baker, the other Baker, McGann, Tennant, or Capaldi (or any of the others!) you’ll be sure to find, over the coming months, something to inspire you in
your day to day life. The whole notion of this blog is to give ideas and inspiration about how to subtly take certain styles, items, or motifs from the Doctor’s wardrobe and incorporate them into something new, unique, and yet still 100% rebel Time Lord.

I must point out now that this isn’t a cosplay blog and will not be overly concerned with screen accuracy – if you want something more instructional in how to attain the exact look of an incarnation of the Doctor, do try out the RPF.

The idea behind this blog is that Doctor Who fans love to emulate what their favourite on-screen hero says, does, and most importantly, wears. This will allow you to pick up certain pieces and style tips that make you feel a little more Doctory than you did before, and if that’s not a good thing, I don’t know what is.

Doctor Who inspired outfits can give you a really interesting and unique sense of style, while remaining grounded in something we all know and love. The best part about the Doctor’s dress sense is that he tends to stick towards classic silhouettes of men’s fashion – which, luckily for us, makes it easier to emulate!

Check back soon for the first full post on the subject wherein I’ll be giving links, tips and tricks for obtaining some true Time Lord style.

Alons y!
