Many a Clara Oswald fan was devastated to hear that Jenna Coleman quit Doctor Who a couple of days ago. There’s still enough time to enjoy her presence as the current Companion – till Christmas, at least, but that’s certainly not-so-good news for her fans.
And speaking of fans, there’s this gal named Olesya Lyuzna who has caught the eyes of Whovians the world over with her Clara Oswald cosplay. One look, and you’ll do a double take – is it really “just” a cosplayer and not the real deal?
Doctor Who Cosplay tells Olesya’s story, who says that Matt Smith was her first doctor, and that “with his guidance I learned about the importance of kindness, adventures, and friendship. I knew I was hooked the minute the theme song started playing, and even today that familiar ‘doo-wee-oo’ makes me smile. And then – amazingly – his new companion was a girl who looked just like me, and yet it was easy to see that Miss Coleman was proud of who she was!”
Coincidence? Maybe. Then again, there are no such thing as coincidence, they say.
Want to pay tribute to Clara Oswald by mimicking her (even though you may not look like her at all)? Here’s a makeup tutorial by Olesya herself.
Doctor Who? Doctor Who!
