Amy Pond Costume, Hair, Makeup, and Nails for Halloween

DIY amy pond doctor who costume hair and makeup

Chris and I have been really obsessed with Doctor Who…. that’s an understatement. In this post you will see how you can get my favorite character’s look for Halloween, Amy Pond, with things you already have in your closet!

We started watching Doctor Who on Netflix a few months ago and couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for the 50th anniversary episode next month! Amy Pond quickly became my favorite character, followed closely by Rose Tyler.


How to look like Amy Pond


Create smooth and loose wave rather than tight spiral curls. For some of the episodes Amy had straight hair but for a lot of the episodes it was very loose waves.

Amy’s makeup is always simple (except for that one episode where she was a rebel model…? I guess that is what she is like without Roary) with usually a pink lip and pink blush.

Amy wears a lot of leather or faux leather jackets with layers. Whenever she wore shorts or skirts she paired them with tights or stockings. Every day she also wore an Eiffel tower necklace, I borrowed one from my sister in law Lina. All the fashion items were from Target, Forever 21, or JC Penney. She also wears flannel often.


Originally I was planning on wearing Tardis nails but I didn’t think I’d be able to pull it off (I’m sure I would have messed it up) so I opted for galaxy nails. I did an easy version of galaxy nails by combining dark polish, a glitter polish that has both chunky and small glitters, and optionally silver dots. See the tutorial above for the final look.

What are you going to be for Halloween? Let me know in the comments!

    Love it! The boyfriend and I will be doing the same, though I’m going as the Amy with Silence tally marks.

      I almost did that look! When you dress up can you show me on Instagram (I’m @RebeccaKelsey)? I’d love to see it!

      Kindness is the best accessory,

    I haven’t actually watched Dr. Who but this is an adorable costume and just a cute makeup look in general. The hair also looks really pretty on you!

      Thanks Zoe! If you have Netflix they have most of the episodes. It is definitely a science fiction show but it also has a mix of other genres like drama and horror in a few episodes.

    About the nails, why not just go with her usual thing like reds or greens? Be like Amy! She is the Doctor’s mother-in-law you know, she doesn’t have to do the whole galaxy thing… She could now care less about impressing her son-in-law. Cool page though! Thanks! Going as Amy for Halloween 2015!
