OK, that is way too cute for words.

The stuffed goat dressed up as K-9 was a nice touch.

I am pretty sure this is considered abuse. It will definitely require years of therapy when she's older.

When she is older and age-appropriate, have her dress up as the Companions.

Okay. That is totes adorbs--in all meanings of that phrase. And certainly, at two-years, parents dressing their child up is just fine, but something about it brings out the grumpy old woman in me.

(rant on)Look, buying your little princess chests full of dress-up outfits is not really doing them a favor. In my day, we had a few dress up items (maybe a cowboy hat or a doctor's reflector band), but most little girls played with mom's old dresses and blankets. One blanket could be used to play Lawrence of Arabia, the Virgin Mary, an old granny, an island girl, or a ghost. Mom's old clothes were perfect for playing house, having tea, or just generally being fancy. These things built our imaginations. They made us creative. And, in the case of mom's clothes, reinforced the idea that we were playing at being a grown up because we didn't fit into truly grown-up cloths.(rant off)

I couldn't have done that. Maxi pads didn't come with adhesive when I was little. And I bet if you ask her about it now, she was at least a little amused. Or is now.

The kid is 110% adorable and the costumes are great.

The fact a two year old has a Twitter account causes me to roll my eyes, though.

I must agree. This just smacks of parents dressing up their kids for their own amusement. While I don't have a problem with this as such, it does seem to
take the whole obssessive fanboiism over the edge a tad.
Doctor Who is a good show & all, but at least wait for Halloween.
Do these kids even know who the Dr. is or why they are being dressed up like this? With that said I would love to see a costume of those little fat-blob creatures.

It's cute, but I still have to say: It's a PERSON, not a DOLL.

When you really think about it, this isn't all that different from the kids on Toddlers & Tiaras except the audience is different (nerds instead of whatever-the-f√ck those women in that audience are.)

This wasn't done for the kid's sake, clearly. These aren't dress-up clothes. To jump to the conclusion that these parents are going to buy this little girl every outfit she might ever want to dress up in is ridiculous. At 2 years old, she doesn't even know who she's dressed up as. You can't assume you understand a person's motivations based on 11 pictures posts on the interwebs without context.

One parent is probably a knitter (as evidenced by custom sweaters and scarves) and slings a mean sewing machine and was just having some fun - or maybe making clothes as an assignment for a sewing class.

To assume there's some indulgence going on here is an absurd leap.

I don't even have a problem with parents playing with their children as if they were a dolly - as long as this is limited to the first three years of life (as happened in the article). The child probably won't remember, so there's no harm, no foul. After three, unless it's a holiday or the child really does initiate it, it's unfair. And frankly, somewhere between two and three, good luck getting the little dear to do something she really doesn't want to do.

What I am really talking about, though, is giving children chests full of correctly-sized, professionally made costumes. I think those things tend to stunt imagination. When I wanted to be a princess, I took some newspaper, colored it, rolled into a cone, and stuck a Kleenex in the point to create my own princess hat. Figuring out how to make a proper princess hat was fun - frankly, more fun than waiting around to be rescued. Which is why I also took up fencing with sticks (and much later, foils). Now anyone can just go into any store and buy one for their little princess. (new window) Part of growing up was figuring out how to keep my mom's hat (and it's weird, little veil) from slipping over my eyes as I pretended to drink my pretend tea and pretended to eat my pretend petit fours. Now, every little suburban girl seems to have a set of boas, Fancy Nancy Hats, and appropriately-sized kitten-heeled mules. (new window) Problem-solving is fun. This sort of things seems to deprive kids of that sort of fun.

Calvin went to Mars in the very same cardboard box that later turned him into a tiger and a frog.

Far cuter than the poor Toddlers'n'Tiaras bimbettes-in-training. Lesson learned: toddlers are naturally beautiful and actually look pretty awful with the clown makeup and shellac and heels and big hair! Can't you see this, warped child pageant moms?

My first thought was "I hope he did that over the course of several days." My little one is 13 months, and I couldn't imagine changing her clothes that many times in one day. After the third outfit, I just know she'd flip me the bird then fun off naked/half dressed, lol. Having said that: aww, so cute =)

How does someone with an obsession that juvenile and that unregulated manage to attract a female to the point of copulation? (I hesitate to even think what the logistical details behind that event were. "Hey baby, check this out...it's sonic!" *shudder*)

The kid is farked for life. I mean she is cute and all, but I see lots of cute on the Smoking Gun lineup every week, so the cute won't necessarily save this poor child.

And finally , yes this is as bad as Toddlers and Tiaras. They posted it online. That means they are doing it for the attention...for them.

Yeah, except a couple doing this to their kid as a silly little idea they had is nothing like ridiculousness of toddlers and tiaras. They aren't exploiting their kid as a way to relive their glory days, or as a form of wish fulfilment because they weren't good enough for pageants or as a way to fame and forture. It's also not terribly likely that a couple dressing their kid up as the Doctor is going to be a constant thing for the entirety of the child's youth, and it's not likely to screw the kid up with body dismorphia or whatever it's called. It's a couple having fun with their kid. You and DeaH need to lighten up.

Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong person, but I seem to recall you being married, and it's extremely rare for you to visit a Who thread without bashing either Smith or Moffat, almost an obsession really.

Heh. If I'm not mistaken, this kid and her parents were at the Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention in February.

I think this photo is Valentine dressed as the eleventh Doctor taking a nap and this video is W. M. Sheppard declaring her as "definitely the Doctor" (like he did in the Impossible Astronaut).

Oh geeze, that's funny. I hadn't realized they'd made the full set.

I'm acquainted with the DeWalts, and I gotta say that, while incredibly nerdy, they're both really cool people. They sometimes dress up Val for conventions, and she clearly loves the attention that it gets.

I think with certain geek obsessions I would agree with you but Doctor Who is prime time television as well as part of our national herritage, Being a fan doesn't necesarrily make you a social outcast.

/besides he was probably wearing a bowtie when they met, bowtie's are cool.
