River Song from Doctor Who Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

River Song’s story is many things, from heartwarming to heartbreaking. It also becomes a very curious tale because we don’t get it in chronological order. She meets up with the doctor during different times of their lives that it can be confusing to watch. But that’s what makes it exhilarating. Their love story is both refreshing and exciting to witness.

River has donned on many outfits during her stint in the show, from formal gowns to adventurer garbs. For this one, let’s meet in the middle. She’s wearing a snow white leather jacket and brown tights that makes her look like a well-styled archeologist (which she is!). Here’s everything you need to look like River Song.
