When I saw the most recent Christmas episode of Doctor Who, and Miss Hartigan enthroned as Cyberking, I decided I just have to have that outfit for myself. Then reality set in and I realised that since I can't really sew, and I have never actually made clothes, starting with a full-skirted Victorian dress might be a tad overambitious. So I settled for a doll.

**Edit** Finally finished the throne and cyberhelmet, so here she is complete.


The throne on its own:


and a kind of iffy closeup of the helmet:





The doll itself is based on a Runo doll (I think, it's so long ago now I can't remember). I didn't have to make a corset, as I just made her body that shape (If only that worked in real life. Alas...). I would like to thank the people on the Craftster costume forum for giving me useful advice and links on Victorian underskirts. Here it is in all it's glory:



Here's a better angle on the doll.



Thanks for looking.

I love it. The first time the images would not show. I think some of these ads are really slowing down the loading.

BUT all that aside, I love it. As I love red so much this is totally wisted.

I'm so glad I watched the special on youtube... it hasn't even aired in the US yet! Awful!

But this is great! I love it so much, totally wisted.

I can't wait until the Next Doctor shows on BBC America on June 27!  Your doll looks just like the pictures I've seen of her.  Very cool!

Thanks for all the positive comments. I finally finished the throne and helmet, so I updated the pictures.

I'm watching The Next Doctor right now. It just proves to me that your doll is just about perfect.

She's amazing! That dress and underskirt are great in making her look evil as much as impressive, the doll gives a very good idea about the character it portrayes, and is so well made. I am speechless about your sewing skills!

Can I brag and say it won Best in Show at the Model show at my local SF con this past weekend? In defense of my humility it was a very small show and I was up mostly against Lego models. I should have put it into the art show instead, where it would not have fared nearly so well, but hubby didn't finish his project in time this year, and we couldn't let the family go entirely unrepresented.
