Finally, here are some shots of the finished masks, some details on the attack mask, and one shot of the hair piece that wasn’t (it looks fine and dandy on the little mannequin head, but it looked like crap when I put it on).
..here is a picture of my daughter and a sentient blob of fat.
Yes, that is her in her 10th doctor costume.
This is her in all eleven costumes.
Best mom EVER.
wearableart4sale: Yes the inside is larger than the outside. It is amazing these white synthetic pumpkins. Hayley my daughter and I spent over 2 hours or even 3 hours looking in about 4 pumpkin patches looking for a “Tardis” pumpkin until we finally found one. I think we paid about “$18.00 and but then when we realized how much time we were going to put into carving the pumpkin thought, gee it will rot and be gone in a week and that is no fun… So we went to Micheal’s got a white synthetic pumpkin and did a bunch of creative carving. The “Police Box” words were challenging. We would do it differently next time for sure. We wish we had seen that gal’s pumpkin carving patterns before we had started carving our own design. Oh well. This is my first ” Tardis” attempt. Not my first pumpkin attempt. My first synthetic pumpkin I have to admit. I am a purist when it comes to Halloween, but this design was too complicated to not use a real pumpkin. Anyhow, if you like it reblog it. Hope you do. Cheers. There are 4 photos in all showing the work in progress. The 4th photo is of the original drawing. Closed doors, doors open without details inside and the details inside.

Part of this week’s series on Wholloween
One Reddit dad has been dressing his toddling daughter up in the many outfits of Doctor Who, and it’s pretty darn adorable. This is our favorite, but feel free to pick from the variety of options as modeled by this youngster and your kid could be the cutest trick-or-treating alien time traveler on the block. That is, unless you live on the same block as this little girl.
My broken cybermen pumpkin carving. Yeahhh, that would be my crazy hair popping out of the top….
‘Doctor Who’ monsters have invaded London.
The creepy Peg Dolls - which appeared in the episode ‘Night Terrors’ - were spotted at Brook Green Children’s Playground in the capital yesterday (19.10.11) eerily riding on the seesaw in the middle of the night.
The monsters stopped off at the playground on their way to their new home at the ‘Doctor Who Experience’ at London’s Olympia where they will be joining the Time Lord’s other adversaries in the exhibition section of the attraction in time for half-term week and Halloween weekend.
‘Doctor Who’ fans can get be taught how to “walk like a monster” by the BBC show’s choreographer Ailsa Berk on Friday October 28, and entry is free for children dressed as a character from the series accompanied by a paying adult.

From Liz in Maryland:
As soon as I saw the DW Christmas special A Christmas Carol, I knew I had to make Abigail Pettigrew’s costume. I fell in love with the character Katherine’s voice and I connected with the charcater and since I sing as well, I had to! I love how sweet she is and her amazing outlook on life and that her voice is what saves the day. Before making the costume, I spent forever trying to gather pictures of this and analyzing the details in the outfit. I made the body of the dress, styled the wig, and altered the sweater. The cloak and the detailing on the dress were done by my friend Rachael as I was getting into a time crunch with this costume for an event. My favorite moment in this outfit was at Gallifrey One, a DW con in LA, when I sang Phantom of the Opera with a friend at karaoke.
You can still submit your entry for the BBC America Costume Contest until October 18th right over here.
p.s. Remember Abigail? She’s from a DW Christmas special (see below).
