Heya! I've been waiting to add a post for a while now and recently, finished a costume for SciFi Expo that was in Richardson, TX. At the behest of Lilybet85, I am now posting this up! Hope y'all enjoy!!

The Dalek inspiration from Doctor Who (LOOOOVE that show!):


I didn't take pictures making it in the beginning because I was so crunched for time!
Front:


Back:


Hot gluing the half spheres on..


And how it turned out...


Ta da!!

OMG, I would LOVE to have a dalek costume like that!  Of course, I would have to tell everyone what I was, being in the states and all.  But I bet it was great at the scifi con or whatever you went to!

Thanks y'all!!! *blush*

@radmom: It was actually very well-received at SciFi Expo! I was afraid no one would recognize me but lo and behold - all the cosplayers and many non-cosplayers recognized me! Richard Hatch and Kate Vernon from BSG loved it as well as many of the comic book artists.
@McJulie-O: I was wearing shorts under so I just lifted the back completely up and sat on the edge of chairs! LMAO.. i had to change in the car since I couldn't wear it and drive.. hah..

Again, thanks for all your love and support!!! Cheesy

I've seen a number of Dalek dresses, and this is the only one that I actually like. Beatiful job! I love how you interpreted the top part of the dress.

I think this is the greatest take on a female Dalek that I have seen! It's also a cute pattern for a dress. Great job!

Impressive!  What a great idea and a fun costume.  I've been totally Dalek obsessed lately since I re-watched "Better Off Ted" and noticed one in the sub-basement where robots to go die.  I totally had a nerd spasm when I saw your costume!
