.:Cosplay:. Fem Eleven

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.

Duchess Silk is the 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!
