If you’re jonesing for the next Doctor Who season to start like we are at my house, you’ll want to check out this cool project by Karen Kavett – she repurposed a 1980s Guess Who board game into a custom Doctor Who version. How fun would it be to have this at a premiere watch party??
Karen paid significant attention to detail, painting the plastic trays a TARDIS blue, and the scoring pegs like mini sonic screwdrivers. She created (rebooted) Doctor Who images to replace the original people cards, including the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctor, his Companions, and other important characters (DON’T BLINK when you flip up that Weeping Angel card!). She graciously provided PDFs of her images, to make it easier for the rest of us Whovians.
Not satisfied to stop with the Doctor, Karen also repurposed a Clue game as a Hunger Games version!

Have you ever wondered what David Tennant might look like as a yard gnome? Yeah, I know, that might be the weirdest question you hear all day, but bear with me.
Redforkhippie of Tulsa, OK posted this modified yard gnome into everyone’s favorite Time Lord, over at Craftster. She said her gnome started his little concrete life as a biker, complete with chaps, engineer boots, and a skull brooch/bolo tie/whatever.
She’s planning another modified gnome for Matt Smith, and it includes using a hacksaw to turn his gnome hat into a fez.
Thanks to EPBOT I have found the greatest set of geeky cameos. If the title of the post didn’t make it clear I’m sure the Cookie Monster Cameo helps clear it up. Geek Goddess Creations has tons on hand crafted cameos following all sorts of crafty themes.
Look at that hand crafted beauty. She has a bunch of other fandoms as well. Mario, Pokemon, Doctor who, and a few more.
Ask most women and they will probably tell you that you can’t have enough shoes. SewWhatByMonica, an Etsy seller from San Antonio, has created a must have pair of shoes for any female Whovian.
Each pair of oxford shoes are purchased brand new. A water-based sealer and finish is used on the fabric areas, where there are fancy little TARDISES (TARDI?) in the pattern. SewWhatByMonica also uses black acrylic paint to finish the fabric ends.
Or if damask and the TARDIS are not your thing, there’s also a pair available in Gallifreyan writing on them.
Austin-based artist Allison Hoffman makes crafty tributes to pop culture icons such as Pee-Wee Herman, Conan O’Brien, Carl Sagan, Willie Nelson, and Questlove, but it’s her new crocheted amigurumi dolls of “Doctor Who” Time Lords that seem to be getting a lot of attention.
Fans can make their own versions using her patterns available on Ravelry.
Crafty is Cool created her version of Peter Capaldi in crochet form.
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.
