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.

She's beautiful!  Wow, you did a wonderful job on her.

I told you: I only wrote that poem to test my printer!

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 have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

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!

Awesomeness! That dress came out fantastic! It looks just like the ep. All hail indeed.

Great job!  I love all her underpinnings too.

My world is an unusual one.

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