TARDIS Closet

felony_melanie over at Reddit showed off the closet door and wall she recently painted to look like the TARDIS in outer space. felony_melanie is a professional artist, and this was for a little boy. He was in the hospital and when he came home this was in his room.

Her next mural is at a middle school to paint their rotunda like a South Carolina salt marsh.

TARDIS Gingerbread House

It’s not too far past the holidays for gingerbread yet, is it?

No? Alright, then check out this gingerbread TARDIS by Reddit user Fortunekitty. She went so far as to post her own tutorial for other Whovians to make their own holiday treat.

Fortunekitty’s TARDIS is made from white chocolate mixed with blue food coloring for the icing, gingerbread, and edible sugar paper for the printed signs.

Would this count at all towards the Doctor someday being a ginger? Probably not, but what a way to try!

Printables for a Doctor Who Party

Doctor Who printable cupcake toppers

Planning a Who-a-Thon for New Year’s Eve? I’ve got just what you need to invite friends and decorate! Kristi Duggins, aka Bohemian Bear on Etsy, has a whole slew of Doctor Who-related printables to help you get ready in a flash – no sonic screwdriver required!

Use her Printable Invitation to entice friends to attend, her DIY Bunting set to adorn your TARDIS (you have one in the corner, right?), and her Starry Night Circles to top a set of blue cupcakes.

Then when the evening is done, you can scrapbook your memories (any that the Silence didn’t steal, that is!) with her Starry Night Scrapbook set. For additional scrapbooking fodder, you can also check out the RetroDiva “Call the Doctor” digital scrapbook set I featured previously.

Which Doctor Who episode would you choose to have playing at the strike of midnight?

Hildebrandt Brothers Star Wars Poster Cross Stitch

star wars

Natalie Owen worked on the greatest cross stitch pattern I think I’ve ever seen: the Star Wars poster by the Hildebrandt brothers. It’s 13″ x 16″. Natalie used the black cloth to her advantage here and did the piece as negative space, so she didn’t have to fill in all the black spaces with stitches. It used 50 colors of thread.

For me, I known of the Hildebrandt brothers from their Marvel paintings in the 80′s and 90′s (they were Alex Ross before Alex Ross ever was!), and just found out they were the ones responsible for creating this iconic poster.
