Doctor Who is, of course, one of the most awesome programmes, notching up five decades on the screen so far.

Unfortunately, a lot of the really scary costumes are major, big-budget projects. Daleks and Cybermen are very cool, but lots of folk lack the time, money or just the space to build a major costume. 

One of the most impressive recent monsters are The Silence, but they're another big prosthetic project.


What about somebody who has seen a Silent? Now, that's another proposition...

Step 1: The context

The thing about Silence is their effect on the memory - as soon as you look away from them, you don't just forget what they look like, you even forget you saw them.

The next time you see one, though, while you are looking at it, you remember what is going on.

At that point, the Doctor's companions started keeping a tally of how many Silence they see, writing it in the most obvious, un-loseable place they could;  their own skin.
<p>Thank you!</p>
why are there so many blank photo's?
<p>That's how I dressed up at my last Doctor Who party! :) Fun idea!</p>
Oh I will...
This is so cool... May just have to try this on the day of the doctor
Cool - post pictures if you do!
Well that is just about the easiest/lowest budget costume ever! It would be interesting to see how many Whovians you would run into on Halloween...
