Introduction: Dalek Costume for Halloween 2008

This less of an explanation of how to and more of a bunch of photos of my costume which sort of shows you how it was made.

I didn't plan ahead and take photos as each step was completed. Sorry.

Nice costume! You know, that first picture made me think of Carrie Fisher in Blues Brothers. Scary, huh?

Nice costume. You could wear this all night at the party and still eat, drink, etc... Good job.

The weird thing is that it looks like Princess Leah has been assimilated by the Dalek's. Some kind of SciFi three-way!

Gort will kick the Dalek's *ss. Gort rules. Barada nikto!

Pah! Daleks'll make Gort go all negative with their plungers, and then robotize Klaatu, just for the Hell of it.

I don't think so! Gort knows of secret Dalek weakness - he will use his 'ray of vaporization' against the plungers of the Dalek's, creating a massive cloud of rubber vapor which will condense on the cold internals of the Daleks causing them to become permanently gummed up! Ha! Who needs plungers when you have a cool retractable visor??? Gort 4-ever!

But there's so many Daleks and only one Gort. They could surround him, even with their limited Dalek mobility. Gort couldn't possible vapourize and immobilize 'em all, before getting negatived. Granted, Gort is a pretty tuff mofo, so he could probably withstand a few negativings.

Yes, Gort is a bad*ss. All the more reason to friend him on Facebook ;-)

I was not going for a true dalek costume but more of an inspired by. It came out exactly how I planned and am very proud of it.

Didn't they have a toilet plunger ray gun? In the 1970's they did anyway.
