Cyberman #omg #sdcc #50thanniversary #tumblrmeetup #doctorwho #bbcamericaThis is me pretending to not be afraid. It was a legit Cyberman. I accidentally bumped the arm and almost screamed. I was hesitant and didn’t really know if I should smile or try not to cry. This is my trying not to cry and smile face. Bad quality, but there was really only one go at this since I was, y’know, scared.
