Welcome Whovians!

So here she is!  Beauty Queen Tardis!

This is a quick costume we threw together for a costume dance.  We used mostly stuff around the house.  Would be better if the dress is more of a Tardis blue....But I think the look turned out good for our first attempt  :)

So here is the how to make a Tardis or Police Box Costume Dress!

For the lamp on her head..I used 2 night lights I got from dollar tree. Painted it blue, hot glued the open back ends together and put in 2 blue glow glued it all with a cone top and bottom made out of card. - Next time I would give it a better base.  This looks great in the dark!!!  

How to make the Tardis head lamp/light!

She is wearing a Tardis necklace.

The Police Box sash is made out of wide black ribbon which I found at Walmart.  I looked all over for letter stickers but ended up cutting the letters from computer paper and using a glue stick to stick them on...  The sash is held on with a St Johns Ambulance symbol that I made in to a pin with blue crepe paper fanned around it.

We wrote the words Bad Wolf on her back.

I also had blue gloves for her to wear...but they were forgotten.  Probably better this way.

I did make a vortex with blue glow necklaces that wrapped around her....but it didn't look right.  So the bottom is plainer then originally planned.

And I also had the sign printed out small to put on her arm...but didn't have time to figure out how to attach it....I regret not attaching really needs to be on to complete the look....I may make it into a cuff for her wrist....

I was considering windows for the bottom part of the skirt..but didnt get that far.

Played with camera settings trying to get a pic of the head lamp glowing!  This is Kaitie after a night of dancing.  Some letters did fall off the sash.....And all the extra glow necklaces that we didn't use for the dress, were a HUGE hit at the party...always bring glow things to a party  :)  And a banana!  And you too can be the star!

This Tardis girl was lucky enough to find her "Doctor" at the dance...(and they danced!!!  Most of the night!!!)  She was so worried that no one would know what she was  :)  She was wrong....there was actually 2 Doctors at the party!  1 male, 1 female, because Doctor Who is AWESOME!!!!

I hope you like it!  Thanks for reading  :)

Movies Based on Books that kept to the original story almost exact!


File:RosemarysBabyBook.jpgI have found that these 2 movies are almost exact to the books!  

The Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure

Rosemary's Baby PosterRosemary's Baby (1968)

When reading this book you will find everything from the movie!  Just one small part is missing.  It is a horror story about a young couple who move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.

The Princess Bride PosterThe Princess Bride (1987)

 I saw the movie first and was inspired to read the book and was surprised that the script for the movie was almost exact to the book!  The story is a classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, and a beautiful princess.  A great adventure to be enjoyed by both boy and girls!

Every Doctor WHO Party needs these!

Doctor Who Party!

This had to be one of the funnest parties we have ever hosted!  My bestest friend created the most awesome gingerbread Tardis!  And also came up with the idea for the Daleks!!!!  The kids had fun crawling through the present to another dimension!  We made paper crafts of folding Tardis's!  Found here.  We made sonic screwdrivers with whatever we could find!  The one was lit with a little finger light which you can find in Dollar stores.

Are you my Mummy?

Planet of the Apes - See no evil, Talk no evil, Hear no evil!

  Planet Of The Apes is one of my most favourite Movies!!!  I remember watching CityTv when I was a teenager when they played a Planet of the Apes marathon.  I would stay up all night with my sister and watch every movie all in a row.  The best way to watch all these movies!!!

Here is a bit of trivia for you!

See no evil, talk no evil, hear no evil. 
Charlton Heston"It's a curious thing, there is a kind of an accident in the film that I think both Frank and I sort of half regret being in, and oddly enough a number of critics have picked it up and said this is a phoney thing. 
It is in the "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" tableau.
All the other things the monkeys do, the cliches that they use, that you can justify because theirs was a mimicking culture, and they would logically mimic the speech cliches, as well as the cultural cliches, of today. 
But there's no way you could justify that, that indeed is a phoney. 
When we were shooting the scene, Frank said, "You know, it would be terribly funny to have a gag of them doing that." We laughed at it, and he said. "No, it's a phoney. I shouldn't do it." I said, "Why don't you do one just for the dailies," and he said, "All right." So we did it in, laughed, and everybody thought it was marvellous, but he didn't want it in the final cut. 
Then, somehow it got in the rough cut, and all the studio echelons saw it and said, "No, don't change it!" Then, they had the first preview, and it was an enormous success. So there it is." [1]
