Right, who stole my message??  Grin

The pc was playing up this morning, ah well  Roll Eyes

Ok, I have to make a Dalek outfit for my sons 'world book day' at school- go as your fave book charecter. I know Daleks arent strictly a book charecter, more a tv charecter, where the programme is aslo made into books, but my son HATES dressing up, but seems really keen on this!  Grin

I thought I'd run this by you, in case you had any good ideas, or if you thought it might work.

I have a load of dark yellow hot air balloon fabric, and I am going to construct a 'cone' shape, ankle length, pinafore type thing.(Bit like pulling a full length underskirt up under your pits)  I have 2 sets of hoops usually used to stick out the bottom of wedding dresses. I'm gonna put one in the middle of the cone, and another at the bottom to get the general Dalek shape. Then make the bumps on the Dalek out of orange circles of material.

The helmet has already been made from papier mache, and old landrover lenses (original Dalek lights were made of these!!) with battery powered fairy lights inside!!!

I'll see if I can get my hubby to put a pic of it on here.  Cheesy

So, is there an easy way to do this full length tabard/dress type thing?? Shall I make the top bit first, or the whole length at once? I've never used the hoops before.  Huh
