LOL that is HILARIOUS ! The fourth doctor would totally do that too ! ... the Ood's pose, expression on his face.. that's just priceless ! .. amazing ood mask by the way .. mask was made by hand ? Did a search on google out of curiosity and the only one I could find was on sale for $350 at ebay so I'm guessing if you see an ood mask it was made-by-hand by a Dr. Who cosplay enthusiast?
Y'know it didn't occur to me to ask. I don't think so, it was probably purchased from someone. Paul's a mechanic and he built our K-9, but AFAIK he doesn't have sculpting skills like that. He's obviously got money to spare, so I wouldn't be surprised if he bought it.
I can't remember if you said you have Facebook or not... if you do, join this: [link] Because we're already discussing possibilities for the next get together. If you don't, I'll note you when we decide on something.
Awsome cosplayers! I see that mask, and just have to wonder how freaking hot is it in there? In Colorado, we're having 90 degree days and that thing would be murder here. How does he see? I can't see any eye holes. Those are great!
Those are great! I love the costumes! Although, I have to admit, I'm a bit disappointed there wasn't a tardis anywhere. Tsk, tsk. Just curious, did you get any weird looks?
In some of those pics, I could tell you guys were hot. I think the funniest thing was the random guy with the 'Doctor Whooves' pony t-shirt. Was he part of the group, or did he just happen to be there? Either way, that was great. And the guy with the Star Fleet uniform was awesome too.
Our TARDIS prop is 600 lbs., and we didn't they they would let us bring it into the zoo anyway. This November though, we'll set it up for Tucson Comicon! I think we got more weird looks when a couple of us went to Target after the shoot. I ran up to random people asked "What year is it!?" When I got an answer, I'd say "Then it's not too late to stop them! Thank you!" Run off, turn around, and add "Don't come back here tomorrow."
The Doctor Whooves shirt guy was our Ood, and also the builder/operator of K9. That's Paul Bradford, of Ghost Hunters International. And we had to have a Starfleet doctor in there for irony's sake.
I thought I'd use this time before my wife and kid return to do as much as I can and clear a to-do list a bit.......but too much is too much. It's tough to handle both the regular carpal-tunnel-heavy job from 8-4 and this for the remainder of the day.
You should see my right hand, heh...the bones have deformed ages ago, and knuckles adapted to constant grip on a writing/drawing tool. There's a groove in my middle finger, perfect diameter and angle for housing a pencil ..and when I overwork myself, that spot kinda blisters and cracks. And hurts. That's the case right now.
