Baby in a TARDIS Suit!

If you go all wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey for babies prepare to jump to warp.

I just can’t get over this cute 6 month old girl and her dad all dressed up for halloween! I especially love this:

“The Tardis is not the most current one because we realised pretty quickly that my husband could better pull off David Tennant than Matt Smith, so we matched her to her appropriate Doctor.”

Yea, its a good job you did that sabrinalouisemiller … nobody’d be able to take a mismatched TARDIS seriously :-)

geek parenting – WINNING!

Doctor Who Poodle Skirt

Happy Halloween! snow_whisper made this super cute skirt, and it’s a great costume, a combination of TARDIS-love and Doctor Who lore (I’m thinking of “The Idiot’s Lantern”). The rickrack is trimmed with embroidery of the words “Pull to Open”, “Police Box” and of course “Vworp”, leading to the TARDIS itself! She also made a felt fez for a friend who is dressing up as Eleven. I wish I had thought of this. Love it!

Quick and Practical Costume

Today is the big day (Halloween) so I am sure you have all got your costumes sorted for tonight.

If not, then don’t panic. Help is here in the form of  NoFiller from Instructables. She has made a quick and easy tutorial on how to make a practical and warm costume for a superhero, so no need to freeze to death in all that lycra.

She even includes a colour chart for different superheroes which is quite fun to play guess the super hero with.

Happy Halloween Geeks!

Geeky Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Patterns

Just in time for tomorrow’s spooky big day, I found some fabulous pumpkin carving templates with a dash of geeky flair, and a side of Joss.

That’s right – Firefly-inspired jack-o-lanterns. Aw yeah.

Burdastyle’s Halloween Competition: the Cute and the Geeky!

If you havn’t entered Burdastyle’s Bernina Halloween Competition this year you’re too late! but here are my picks of this years cutest and geekiest offerings:

I absolutely have to stress that this is just a small snapshot of the HUNDREDS of entries, you burdastylers have really cranked it up a notch this year! See the whole list of entries here.

My ABSOLUTE favourite is Sassy-Pantslight up Angler Fish Costume just for the fact that it will probably genuinely scare the bejesus out of anyone who’s lucky/unlucky enough to be on Sissy-Pants’ boy’s trick or treating route.

Dmajen‘s Ash Ketchum costume, Ananda473‘s Buzz Lightyear costume and Suewanda‘s Link Costume (not pictured), all get credit for being super accurate and detailed.

While Vivat Veritas Flower and Bee Costume, Lsekiya‘s Angry Birds Pig Costume, Ananda473‘s Toy Story Alien Costume, JessicaScissor‘s Ewok Costume, Dneimat‘s Dinosaur Costume and Sparney‘s Sushi Costume, all get the ‘dawww!!’ award for dressing your freaking adorable babies and toddlers in the most geeky and eye-wateringly cute costumes imaginable.

Well Done everyone!

You can vote for your favourite on the BurdaStyle Site from 25th October until midnight EST on Sunday, October 30th!
