Dr Who (5th) Cosplay: Ready for GenCon 2012

Ok, I've finally got the pics you've been waiting for. The costume is done and ready and so am I! I've been doing a lot of sewing and other 'making' in the last week as final preparation.

new badge holders for the Mr. and myself (front & back of each)

The red tape/cords are from badge holders that he's acquired for free in the past. We have no affiliation with Konami, I think it was free in his swag bag one year.  The black & white fabric is left over from a nursing cover I did for a friend a while back, but we both liked i for this. I added a netted section to mine in case I want to put tickets or my phone or something in there. My husband requested his as a 'badge only' badge holder and is currently sporting a badge from 2007 I used as a size guide.

I know Jelly Babies were more of a Tom Baker thing than a Peter Davison thing but I really wanted to have some to carry around in my Time Lord pockets.  Unfortunately, not being in Australia, I don't have access to gluten free Jelly Babies.  So I made some.

I made these to use to make the cornstarch molds

They didn't turn out perfect but they were easier than I thought they'd be and have the general look I was going for.  They are flavored with cranberry pomegranate juice and sugar and thickened with Knox gelatin.

finished Jelly Babies and Gummy Daleks

Also super exciting, I finally finished my sonic screwdriver and got it all painted up.  It's still a little weaker at the top connection point than I'd like but it's more likely to bend than to break off completely, and I'm sure there will be a tonne of people around with superglue on hand if need be. :P

it's sonic becuause it makes a noise ...wait, no...
 And here it is, the costume, finally finished!
corset, bloomers, and blouse
First with the blue socks...

'flashes' have a tiny TARDIS painted on them

And then with the pink...

The pink is fine but I like the blue better. It just 'pops' a bit more.  Plus, they're TARDIS colored. haha!

Heading out soon to pick up my badge and event tickets. Hope to see some of you there. For the rest, I'll try to get and share as many pics as possible!

Happy Wednesday!
