I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “Bow ties are cool.” You know what else is cool? Red suspenders. I feel that I should point out to all of my British readers that I am referring to the American version of suspenders, not the British one. (Though those kind are pretty nifty as well, wink.)
Just look at the color! It’s brilliant, like the red giant Gamma Crucis setting over the horizon. Except, you know, without the millions of kilometers of superheated plasma ready to engulf the planet in an instant. So...not like a red giant at all, then. Though it is red! Or is it more a burgundy?
In any case, these bow tie and braces are the perfect fashion accessory to class up any outfit, whether you’re running from dinosaurs on a spaceship, moseying through a town called Mercy, or just hanging out inside the Pandorica during the Big Bang. They’re quite versatile, really.
In case you’re wondering, the good folks at AbbyShot have said that this bow tie is perfect for your “Doctor Who cosplay”--whatever that is--and fits necks from 16 to 22 inches. As far as how you tie it, that’s a bit trickier. I have had a few hundreds years to practice, after all. My best advice is this: go onto the internet (marvelous thing, isn’t it), and check out this video. There’s a bit of wrapping, folding, and I’m fairly certain it’s supposed to go through your neck at some point, but you’ll figure it out.
I’ve just been informed that a bow tie should never go through your own neck, so if yours does, you’re probably in some sort of computer program. I’ll be along shortly to help rescue you.
Funnily enough, I find that people sometimes wonder how to wear suspenders, or braces for the rest of us--especially Rory. (Poor bloke could hardly find his shoes without me). So, I’ll help you out. It’s what I do, after all. I’m the Doctor! To wear these fabulous red suspenders, simply fasten them to the back of your trousers, pull them over your shoulders, and fasten them to the front of your trousers. That’s it. Bob’s your uncle, Fanny’s your aunt, and other people are various relations of some kind or another.
