It’s no secret that I’m a massive Whovian.
What you might not know is that I have a full size, Tom Baker era, replica TARDIS.
She is not the same Sexy that was hired for my birthday last year – that one was 3/4 sized, modelled on a much later version & was in terrible condition after too many years of being left outside in the weather. Unlike the hired one, she still needs to have wiring & lights added. And to be honest, I want to work on her signage too. But the important thing is that she lives with me, & always will.
Further to having a really awesome, rather large
toy prop in my possession… I also have a project that has been on & off the backbench since 2005. My Geeks & Gamers series. Yesterday, the wonderful Duchess Silk (Facebook, Model Mayhem) came over to play about in the studio in one of her cosplays – a female version of the Eleventh Doctor.
It was a slow moving shoot, due to my back & she was not only patient but also fast to take direction & offer up brilliant pose ideas & some fantastic facial expressions. We drank tea, were entirely silly & ended up with 80 photographs that I cannot choose favourites from!
Needless to say, I’m very much looking forward to working with her again soon!
