Casual Cosplay, Fall Edition: #6 - Dana Scully (The X-Files)

Who does not love Dana Scully? Or better yet, who does not want to be Dana Scully? Not only is she an FBI agent, but she has an M.D. as well. Thus super smart, witty, beautiful (yay for gingers!) and the kind of woman who isn't afraid to voice her opinions. Dana Scully and Fox Mulder were instantly one of my top favorite couples, partners, teams, etc. We tuned in each week to The X-Files to root for them, whether that was to find the truth, see them solve mysterious cases, stop the bad guys, joke around with the Lone Gunmen or to see if they would ever fall in love. To this day, I even love seeing Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny flirt in their special way on twitter (and I know I am not the only one).  Let's take a few moments to just reminiscence of their arc together.

Scully, dubbed the skeptic, was the perfect balance to Special Agent Mulder who could easily get swept up in the moment / his pursuit of truth. Plus she usually did it in medial scrubs or a suit. Her hair changed, he suit styles definitely improved. I tend to equate dark suits with the FBI (or any type of secretive government branch), so that's why I always cosplay as Scully in a black blazer. I sometimes choose a skirt, but for a fall day: dark pants, boots, a white button up, paired with a scarf work perfectly. I also wear a cross necklace and, from previous costumes I actually have a badge. You can hid this away or wear it proudly - depending on how casual you cosplay.
