Shaw, our stalwart young lad, is in first grade. He is the son of a lifelong Doctor Who nerd. Despite never having seen the show himself, Shaw decided to dress like each (pre-Capaldi) Doctor over the course of eleven days. He utilized whatever he could find in his wardrobe to create the costumes. While his father was writing this bio, Shaw had dressed himself as a sailor in order to reenact the adventures of a the World War II era submarine, USS Bowfin. The first two photos, at Shaw’s request, appear in glorious black and white. –Shaw’s proud father

The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker)

(As the Sixth Doctor’s “real” outfit is, well, horrifying and nearly impossible to recreate without some serious tailoring, he found online a photo of an alternate Sixth Doctor dressed all in black.)
