Brainy Specs by alternatecoppa Brainy Specs by alternatecoppa
A shot from the photo session I did with the incredibly talented Lydia Chen- :iconpinkcravat:

I'm always torn about wearing the specs in photos. I've had people tell me I look more like David while wearing them then not, while I sometimes think the opposite. It usually depends on the angle & lighting. Personally I think I look more like Gareth Malone [link] in this shot.

A few more of the photos from this set are at Lydia's Flickr account: [link]

You should get the royal blue suit.

You're scary good at Ten!

Oooh heheh, you look exactly like David Tennant :P

Would you feel objectified if I said you were the second sexiest man alive (Next to the real David Tennant, of course)?

Anyway, this is an incredible cosplay, as always! And the photography work is brilliant as well!

Your cosplay actually made me start watching Doctor who 3-5 years ago. I don't remember exactly when:XD: (It was somewhere in between being obsessed with your Avatar puppets). But I forgot what your dA user was :c. But I found I link to your page on Reddit and I thought I'd say something :)

Keep being awesome! :D

Well now that I'm single again, I'll take any compliment from the fairer sex I can get! :XD:

Seriously though, thank you. It's a lot of fun for me to be able to spend a few weekends out of the year making people do double takes at conventions. Of course I always say I totally lucked out that I wound up resembling an admired actor from an admired TV show. That makes it much easier than if I resembled say, Judge Judy... :D

Sorry to hear that. You were almost engaged.
alternatecoppa Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011
Thanks but no worries. Onward & upward! :thumbsup:
Faytale Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Lol, no problem! :)

And by the way, I think you look more like David with the glasses. :D

A hair tutorial would be amazing :D I currently have my hair cut to the style of Davids but you seems to get it spot on every time and I was wondering if you could share a secret or two :P
AnielaAbair Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist

Dang, how is that even possible? Really, this is brilliant, the clothes, the posing, the expression, everything.
MBrainspaz Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Are you the guy who made his jacket out of pants?! I saw you on HISHE and freaked out! That is EPIC.
Sorsaria Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
Brainy Specs def. make you look more like Tennant. You are an amazing Tenth Doctor cosplayer!
carlfoxmarten Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
The outfit is perfect, how difficult was it to find clothes that matched?

Do you think that the problem you have with the glasses is that they're too tall?
I think David's glasses are about 2/3 the height of the ones you're wearing, and maybe a bit more square-cornered.

Otherwise, it's a stunning likeness.
I'd almost think you were the real Tenth Doctor if I saw you in real life. =^.^=

I've always thought Gareth Malone and David Tennant looked kind of similar though, haha. Not exactly the same, obviously, but they have similar facial features...
And I have the same exact issue. I never know which makes me look more Tennant-y, specs on or specs off. I mean, it goes both ways. I've had pictures with and without them where I look a lot like David, but the same goes for pictures where I look like a shrimpy girl in a suit... exactly what I am. XD
If I'm really torn, what it usually boils down to is if I want to wear my glasses or put in contacts (because I use my actual glasses). Like you said, it has more to do with the angle that I'm shot from.
But anyways, I got a bit long winded, sorry. ^^;
You look great, as per usual!
ShaNyaNya Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
Haha, you look so freakin' badass here XD
jessi-who Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
i swear if i found you at a convention i would so attack you
aoifasd Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
He doesnt wear teh glasses all the time, so i think it is ok to do both.
The picture of you running on the bridge, you did look like DT, but not so much on this one.
I guess it depends on your expression, and the angle of the shot.
alternatecoppa Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
Definitely! I love how the suit looks in this one though.
aoifasd Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
indeed. Have you fix the collar issue that you were talkign about at Gallifrey?
She did such an awesome job shooting you. Very talented photographer :)

Make me want to redo mine.......----> it is way to large (i am still learning how to adjust stuff)
