12:43 pm - Be-cloaked foppish vanity
Last night we had the wonderful lordshiva over for dinner. In addition to much wonderful conversation, she also brought along the gorgeous cloak amberite commissioned her to make as a combined Christmas and B-day present. Having always seem a fan of the Third Doctor (played by Jon Pertwee), I've always loved his purple-lined inverness cloak.

Despite appearances to the contrary, the lining is a rich purple, not bluish purple.

Say... I have need of a cape custom made to my specifications. Think your friend would be interested in the commission?

Do you mean that you want a cloak like that or a Jon Pertwee wanna-be wearing such a cloak :)

Nice.

Why is it that cameras have such a hard time with purple colors? Purple flowers always ended up looking blue with my old digicam, and my new one seems to have the same problem.

You look splendid! I always liked Pertwee's Doctor's sense of style and I like purple flowy things, so I heartily approve.

You are my size, and while you have more alcohol tolerance, I'd be able to ignore heavy sedatives added to a bottle of wine.
Which is to say that if you wake up after passing out suddenly after dinner with me and your cloak is gone, you have no proof it was me.

Sadly, (for you at least) this would not work, since the cloak is made to my height and not yours.

Curses! It's kind of a tease to have our shirt sizes be the same. I constantly want to ninja into your house while you sleep and raid your wardrobe.

You look great.

We really need to go roaming around sometime.

You are most definitely correct. That, and whenever we next get together in cool weather, we most definitely should try cosplaying one another.

Btw, did you get my recent email?

Most certainly. When will you next be on this side of the country (assuming that Lyssa and I don't make it over there first).

Yes, I did. I'll get a reply written shortly.

Becca and I will be there for the holidays, visiting my folks. My wardrobe will be somewhat limited due to maintaining appearances in front of my parents, but I'm certain we can manage something. Other than that, Becca and I might manage Thresholds this spring, I'm not certain given things will be more expensive with Alice gone. OTOH, we do have a very large half of a house with only two people in it, and so are quite eager for visitors.

I will most certainly tell Lyssa of this, we could possibly get together after we return from Pennsylvania to visit our respective families.

Always leave a little room at the bottom of the suitcase, that is what we do.

Again, I will ask Lyssa and see if we can manage something. And I will get that reply sent to you soonest.

Thank you. I've now worked out an outfit with a black turtleneck, a slightly shiny purple cotton shirt, a rather eccentric purple hat (which can be seen in this older pic, and in this one), and the cloak, and I looked at myself in the mirror and realized that while I didn't look like any of the existing Doctors, I could easily be a particularly foppish future version of the Doctor, and that made me very happy indeed.
