Guys, that is brilliant!
The missus has coveted an old battered ex-army style landrover for years, so who knows- it may happen!!

This build just looks better and better from every angle. Really, really damn well done!
And if you don't put that sign and a Landrover in that car park the world is missing out!
Isn't it how ironic that we have to think of solutions out of the box, in order to build our boxes a lot of the time?

As a sidebar, first off, thanks so much, Tony, for finding the appropriate graphic and taking the time to photoshop it. 

Second, it is funny, how much an actual screen image is less impressive than something one of us would likely put together. 

Ideally, if I were making a sign like that, it would say something like: 

U.N.I.T. Headquarters
AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY
UNSC Regulation: 153-5246 You don't jump on Superman's cape,
you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
and you don't mess around with Jim.


But that's a lot of work in an era before computerized desktop publishing.  "UNIT KEEP OUT" is a lot shorter.  And easy to hand letter--mostly straight lines.  Heck, even the more accurate "RESTRICTED" is more letters (and more complex shapes).  "KEEP OUT" is what you paint on a sign for a mine field or a hazmat area.  "Restricted" or something similar is what you'd say for an area where you need a badge to get in.

She looks exceptional mate, I really like the misty photo's they came up great. I actually liked the movie, I was so excited when it came out and I watched it, just because it was Doctor Who, but I agree, I would have liked to have seen a series with Paul Mcgann I think he had quite a potential to be a really good doctor, sadly though it wasn't to be.
Your build is something to be extremely proud of mate, she's a damn fine looking Tardis  :D

Thanks, again, Bazz.

To be honest, I can't stop staring at her, I almost can't believe I did it!
I do spend too much time stroking & hugging her, but best to stop there...

Ha. I think I'd be the same. About your Tardis and my own one day :p

I doubt one gets over "there's a Tardis in my garden" at all. Ever.
Kind Regards,

Hi, all!
Hope you are well & your builds are all going swimmingly.

I don't really do so much Cosplay these days (back in my day we used to call it "fancy dress" :))
But if having a brand new TARDIS in your back yard isn't a good enough excuse to dress up, then I don't know what is!

So, I thought I'd show off the four Dr Who scarves I own.

The first one is my most recent aquisition, which I got from a local charity shop for only £2.75!
(Yes, I know! I couldn't believe it myself!)

The second one was knitted for me recently by a lovely older lady called Chrissie, who does Meditation & relaxation sessions with me. She uses knitting as a kind of therapy & can really bang them out fast. This one is really thick & wide- you could wrap yourself up in it like a blanket!   Thanks, Chrissie!

The third & fourth scarves were both knitted for me about 10-15 years ago now, by an ex-student called Esther. Thanks, Esther, wherever you are!
This first one was about the same length as the first two, but it has seen a lot of action at conventions, fancy dress parties & just out & about every winter & has stretched to it's present length:

I'm sure you will all recognise my last scarf as a series 18 scarf. This one is really huge & I can completely wrap myself up in it on cold winter nights!

Definitely the crowning glory of my collection! Anyway, hope you like the pics!

All the best,

Those photos are definitely worthy of the Envy(tiny).jpg factor! Nice collection!

Thanks, guys!
Volpone recently wisely said, "True love is taking pictures of your partner while they dress up as Doctor Who & stand infront of their TARDIS."
And I think my dear wife has proved that adage to be true!

(I think she's just glad I don't want to dress up as Leela!!!! :o)

Well, I think that's unanimous! ;) ;D Have you tried getting your wife to be a Leela for a few photos with you and your scarves? My wife did it once for a convention; I think it's in my costume thread somewhere. That's the Con where we did the skit in front of Mark Lenard (Sarek) and learned that he was a 'Doctor Who' fan!

(But have you thought about doing that Peri in the bikini from "Planet of Fire"?)

And there is imagery that no one will ever get out of their minds! :P :D

I think this thread could end up wandering into some very dodgy directions!

C'mon guys- think clean thoughts!!

(About TARDISes mostly!!!)

Those are certainly some fantastic costumes! A very nice collection of scarves, I have a similar one from all sorts of places, too! One my father won in a competition when he was small, one my mother knitted me when I was myself small, one my aunt knitted me (I'd love to say I was small, but I wasn't, so yeah... big kid here!) and an official series 18 replica.
I do enjoy having home knitted scarves because they bring their own flair to the look. None of the first 3 I have are accurate, and I love that. In fact the one my ther made me I kept encouraging her to use a huge number of vibrant colours, purples, yellows, reds etc, and that's still my favourite of the bunch. Your scarves and your TARDIS are both looking great :)
As are your jackets I might add, you have a very nice Matt Smith version 2 jacket lookalike there, and that leather coat at the end looks nice - Im a bit fan of leather jackets :)

russellsuthern

Thanks, Rich,

Are we going to see some photos of your scarves?
(Actually, I think I have seen one, wrapped around Dalek Clarkson :))
Yeah, the leather coat is special- found in a little Worthing Boutique for a tenner!

I like mixing & matching stuff, rather than going for a 100% authentic look.
Actually, if ever a smart-ar** says, "That costume isn't authentic," I always reply, "Actually, it is 100% authentic, The Doctor wore it in an untelevised adventure!"
