At the same time I had been also gathering the rest of the costume, including trousers, waistcoat, boots, spats, cravat and cat brooch - all of which made for a double-winning entry to this year’s Gallifrey One convention.
One item I was working on, but ran out of time, was The Doctor’s braces.
These first appeared in the season 21 story Planet Of Fire, but it is unclear if The Doctor was wearing them throughout his Fifth regeneration.
The braces are made from non-elastic cotton wadding, with cast metal clips on the ends with leather button-on connectors.
This is exactly how the original braces were.
The question marks are, just like the real thing, embroidered on with some of them upside down and mirrored.
The braces come in one size, and are adjustable to fit.
If you want to get you hands on a set of these fantastic braces, they are priced at GB£75 each.UK shipping: £5
Global shipping: £15
