I'd decided long ago to resign to only using alts when it comes to twelve's knitted merino wool hoodies, since the screen accurate allsaints ones are so notoriously delicate and fragile that i have heard multiple horror stories about what had happened even to those in more than adequate care. spending multiple hundreds of dollars on hoodies so prone to unintended damage—only to then deliberately distress them in some very specific ways—seemed every bit like an idea that an amateur like me should not yet pursue.
for this reason i've been stocking up on some cheaper cotton hoodies that are much thicker and sturdier (and much more helpful in the michigan winter, i imagine) but otherwise very similar in design to the mode merinos. one of them is a white hoodie that i plan on one day dyeing into the accurate shade of puce.
today, i received a screen accurate xs puce mode merino hoodie from @timetoparquet
(thank you!!!). i will mainly be using it as a color reference throughout my attempts at dyeing my white hoodie. afterwards, i will either sell it to someone else or decide to keep it as the most absurdly rare item in my collection.
i have not worn it other than to test the fit, and i probably won't put it on again, barring very special occasions. it was tremendously satisfying to finally look into the mirror and see the hood drape over my back in that beautiful way that had literally haunted my dreams.
thanks also to @redheadedchinny96
for the xs black topman ladder jumper and @iamgroottho
for the hugo boss caleb plaids (the latter of which, for some ungodly reason i will never understand, were never paired with the puce hoodie on-screen). #doctorwho #doctorwhocosplay #twelfthdoctor #12thdoctor #twelfthdoctorcosplay #12thdoctorcosplay #allsaints #hoodie #dyeing
