The big day is finally here. A day of fun, of dressing up, and of parading around neighborhoods and shopping malls in search of candy rewards. I’ve worked hard for this day, slaving many hours to bring one of Doctor Who’s foes to life. My “little” Doctor was relatively easy to bring to fruition. In contrast, our cyberman was a major undertaking. Seeing my son’s smile and excitement when the whole thing came together made it worth the effort. We will be attending the premier screening of The Day of the Doctor next month and he wants to wear it to the event. 😀 Um, I’m thinking not. I doubt he’ll be able to sit down when wearing the outfit. But he looks good. Doesn’t he? Daughter was too shy to show her face here. That’s fine. You may have noticed I make a point of keeping my kids’ faces off the blog. She wanted me to paste Matt Smith’s face over her own. LOL. She’s so funny. She gets all giggly over Matt the way she used to get over Thor. Poor Thor.
It’s been a long time since my kids were coordinated. Not since 2007, when I had some control, due to their age. That year they were a young Jedi and Princess Leia. My daughter’s wig made the costume. This year they did it all on their own. I wanted to jump in. The desire to create a dalek dress for myself and a TARDIS trench coat for the hubs was overwhelming. Unfortunately,it didn’t happen. Sigh. At any rate, the kids look absolutely brilliant. Hopefully the hubs and I may be able to join in the fun in the years to come.
Now sit back, relax, and enjoy a little Doctor Who Halloween fun picked especially for you and this post based on my kids’ costume chooses. I found these videos super fun and I hope you do too. The Doctor meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer…
For more Doctor Who fun visit BBC One.
If you are not a fan of The Doctor (speak not of it!) 😉 I have something for you too. Be warned, it’s not for everyone and if you prefer cute and cuddly, don’t press play.
Happy Halloween, my friends!
The deadline to get your entry in has now passed and I am turning everything over to an impartial judge—A.K.A. my husband.
What makes him impartial?
- He doesn’t know any of the entrants.
- He isn’t interested in Sam and Dean—Jared and Jensen—in the slightest.
- He doesn’t follow the show, but is always fair, and is well trained in the art of writing.
Check back on Supernatural Sunday. Cross your fingers that he’ll have picked a winner by then. Everyone has been wonderful and if I had a ticket for each and every one of you and I would gladly pass one along to all of you. Unfortunately I don’t, so play we will. I wish you all luck!
