First/Night Last Night  
Thinking of adding LN/FN to my DOTM River costume at DragonCon. I'm freeze framing on the stormcage pants, but I can't decide if they are black, dark olive or dark brown?
Anyone id'd them?

I've got four fezes given to me as shower gifts..most of my costume budget has gone to my "other" costume for this year, as I'll be a not so runaway bride in less than two weeks. If anyone's got Donna wig ideas, I could probably wear my wedding dress as well this year.

Most of the Rivers I've seen do this outfit have gone with black pants. I don't think they've been id'ed.

Well, black is slimming..now to look for suitable footwear.

I thought they were dark olive, but they might be black. I'm doing this low budget for Gally...and already own the olive, so ah well.

Where are you finding the work boots?

I haven't started looking yet, I'm going to look at Wal-Mart. I really want the most expensive thing I have to buy is the journal.

Also, noting, she wore the outfit in The Pandorica Opens, where you can get a clear shot of her shoes....and vaguely her trousers.

I lucked out..my finace made one of those for me, and her gun. I'll check Pandorica, thanks! And as far as shoes, try DSW if you have one of those. My worry with Walmart is comfort. Nothing like having great looking footwear that hurts like hades.

I'm only wearing the outfit for 2-3 hours. Gwen is my main costume for cons. Gally, I'm doing five costumes. Three Gwen, one River and one Amy. I also suffer from the fact that my foot is tiny...which makes it hard to find shoes.

My CoE Gwen shoes always hurt...thanks to the fact that it's a heeled boot, so I bought new ones for I-CON and they're better...I wore my other ones to two cons and CoE is always a full day costume.

I have done this outfit and will again at Dragon*Con. Best I could tell they were some kind of black tactical pants. Black cargo pants at a minimum. She may have in the past had olive ones in scenes in stormcage but these are black. Never could figure out the exact pocket configuration(hello black on black). I went near crossed eyed trying to do that. I got tactical pants that were made for woman so they are flattering. Amazon search tactical pants women. May have to hem bottoms, i made mine like military pants with drawstrings. Helps in blousing over boots. Boots are British army desert issue same as she had in Time of Angels/ flesh and stone. I use mine from that outfit. I got a pair of US army ones for $30 on eBay. Real ones average around more the $200 range. Black tighter tank top and grey slightly bigger one on top. Great curls, good makeup and you are done :) it's pretty much the most comfortable River outfit ever. Also so many pockets, great for all the things you need/collect around a con. Enjoy!

Here is a photo of me in mine, doing jazz hands with one of my Amys.
here's me and stars_fell at TimeGate this year. Seriously, most comfy outfit ever. Also have a gun put in the back of the pants(that's not a weird pocket) because it feels weird about being River without a gun.

Wow..thanks for the pic and the awesome detailed info! You rock! Seriously!

I ordered shoes, tops and pants today. I hope the shoes fit/are comfy. Here are the boots, not the pair I ordered, but similar.

The clothes should be here in two days..bless Amazon. The boots may arrive just before the wedding. Will post a pic when complete. :)

Glad to help! I think it is a great outfit that you can get as screen accurate as possible and still not break the bank, which is untypical for River. If they are steel toed boots, I can't speak for their comfort. Never have been comfortable to me but really good socks and the right socks are key to D*Con and any shoe. Only 50 days left!
