My younger son wanted to be a Dalek from the British TV Show Dr. Who this year. I did my best. It's made mostly from cardboard and papermache. I ran out of time to papermache all the bumps and had to use syrofoam, which refused to stick Tongue. It also turned out to be uncomfortable, and he only took it a short way up the block and back before finishing trick or treating as 'an alien disguised as an ordinary kid' LOL. Cheesy

But, here's what I managed to do in the time I had. It needs major improvement but I think I did pretty well for having no budget and making it mostly from cardboard, paper, and flour and water paste. The plunger is, well, a plunger. The gun is a paint roller handle. The lights on top are plastic disposable cups and the eye is a dowel, and some odds and ends from my collage box.

So, how'd I do?

I would probably have to tip the whole bowl of candy into his trick or treat bag - especially if he said in a computer-like voice: "Exterminate exterminaaaaate!"

Suddenly I realize I want to make a sign for outside our door for next year's Halloween: "Warning, Geeky Sci Fi Costumes Will Be Gushed Over!" I should do one for cult film and/or Monty Python references too!
