Here are the very few photos I took of my Dalek costume for Halloween 2008. I also (despite my intentions) mostly failed to document the build process. Anyway, the ears blink when you talk, which I think is pretty awesome.
Both hilarious and awesome at the same time. The fighting pose photo nearly ruptured my sides!
you look like DALEK boba fett
 i would've used a beater from an electric beater instead of the plunger. and yes, you really need a voice changer(: also, you could've used one of those reflective cone things that they put around construction sites on the road for the body. that's just what i would've done. looks great, though(:
It does have some sort of beater/whisk to represent the lightning gun.
 i know, sorry, i saw the "plunger" thing when i looked back at the show.
<p>Not all Daleks had &quot;plungers&quot;. If you pay attention to the early serials and movies, the plunger was often replaced with a task-specific device, whilst the left-hand lightning gun (or CO2 in the movies) was universal. If you look closely at the original photo which was subject of your comment,&nbsp;<strong>both</strong> items are adequately represented, although the lightning gun does take some concentration to identify.</p>
Very very cool. Did you by any chance have a voice changer put in, to do the robot voice? Can't say exterminate without the voice...haha
Treatment for a Dalek voice is a little more than a voice changer. It has to be fed through a filter to cut out all the high and low frequencies (almost like a telephone) and then passed through a ring-demodulator at 30Hz. The person speaking also needs to sound either extremely arrogant and over-confident (like a used-car salesman), or completely insecure and paranoid (like a politician who got sprung).<br /> <br /> Either way, it's a great representation for a party. Much prefer the originals to the remakes.<br />
not many people knwo what this is but i do its awsome!<br />
put a vacum in the plunger so you can sucker people to death lol thats fro the series
