Doctor Who Wednesday- Tardis Heel Tutorial

For hubby’s Doctor Who Birthday, I needed to look the part and what girl doesn’t enjoy some fun shoes, right?!

Today I will show you how to turn some boring pumps into some amazing Tardis shoes fit for any time traveling companion.

First get your supplies:

  • Blue heels
  • masking or painters tape
  • black & White acrylic paint
  • white paint pen
  • paint brush
  • nail polish remover (non acetone)
  • q-tips
  • clear sealant

I got these navy blue heels at Payless for $19.99 plus I had a bogo so actually $10, SCORE!

130048_4_490x490

I took them home and lined them up on the coffee table and placed two pieces of masking  tape across them leaving a blank line about 1/2 inch in betweenDSC02074

Then I took the black acrylic and painted that blank space with the black forming the base of the police box sign.DSC02075

Once that dried I wrote “POLICE Public call BOX” across the black area, then remove tape when dry

shoe

Note: The  shoe actually shows “Police BOX” across both shoes in rest of the tutorial but I changed it. Now instead of the shoes being two Tardis, it is one Tardis across the shoes. I decided that looked better in my opinion but you can do it either wayDSC02077

Next for the windows of the Tardis, I took pieces of tape and went vertically across the shoe under the police box sign, then took more tape and went across horizontally to create window panesDSC02078

After the tape is in place, paint open areas with white acrylic paint and let dryDSC02079

The remove masking tape and clean up any area that seeped through the tape with q-tip and nail polish remover, being careful to only remove undesired paint.

Then spray with sealant,  let dry and prepare for your next adventure!

There you go, you are now ready to wear your Tardis heels out on the town at any time!

San Antonio Whovians Assemble!

Last weekend was big for us geeks,  with the release of World War Z and the Texas Comicon 2013 in San Antonio and I am pleased to announce the Whovians were out in full force.

Living in San Antonio and being a Whovian can be challenging, my husband and I seem to have no one to talk to about our passion and have to reach out to our fellow Whovians spread amongst the stars and across the internet to connect.

Well last Saturday made us feel at home in our own city, seeing so many Who fans in once place was a very welcome change to our everyday struggle to find someone to share our stories and love.

We were finally able to talk to people about Dr Who (I had a fun conversation about Disney and Dr Who with one the merchants who was wearing a plushie Tenth and a yoda Disney pin) and there were even a few Doctors among the crowd.

Bowties are cool- 11th Doctor

628x471

Would you like a Jelly Baby? 4th Doctor

628x47121

This is my favorite a switched gender 10th and Rose, but I LOVE the Tardis hat most!

If you were looking for a guy in a union jack, here he is!

628x4711111

And the scariest Dr Who species ever invaded the convention, so whatever you do, don’t blink!

628x47132

So okay guys, I now you are out there and would love to be able to share all my Whovian geekery with you, you have been seen so please come out and share San Antonio :)

I hope to be seeing all of you around!

Now on a side note, yes, I love Who, but lets be honest, I am a full fledged geek and do not love just one thing geek. So here are all the other totally awesome costumes seen at the comiccon that I love. I will totally be dressing up for the next Comiccon in October, can’t wait!

Hubby’s Doctor Who Party Planning- Monster High doll turned Weeping Angel Tutorial

For hubby’s birthday this year, I decided to go with a Dr Who theme and what Dr Who party could be complete without a Weeping Angel. So today I am going to show you how I took a Monster High Doll and turned her into one of the ancient races from Dr Who.

If you aren’t a Doctor Who fan, you may not know what a Weeping Angel is and may be wondering why I should have her as decor for the party, so here is a brief run down on the Angel.

The Weeping Angels are an ancient race of aliens ,their usual mode of feeding is to send their victims back in time, which creates energy to consume. When they are not being observed by someone, they can move very quickly and silently, but when they are being observed, they become “quantum-locked”and become stone.

In this position, they are frozen and difficult to destroy. They cannot stop this reaction. If two Weeping Angels were to look at each other at the same time, they would be trapped in stone form until an outside force moves them apart. To prevent this, they often cover their eyes while moving – this makes them look as though they are weeping.

Weeping Angel

weepingangel

The Weeping Angels play a huge part in the Dr Who Series, they are in several episodes along with the very memorable, “Angels in Manhattan”, which ended last season.

So now with a little background, you see, there should be a Angel at the event

On to the Tutorial

Supplies:

Air Dry Clay

Doll- Used Monster High doll but any doll preferably one with jointed elbows will work (I just like the Monster High dolls.)

Wings- You can make them or buy them, I found some cheap at Hobby Lobby, so I purchased them

Cheesecloth for dress

something to secure  hair and dress like wire or rubberbands

Stone textured spray paint

glue sticks and glue gun

something to work on, I used a paper plate

Steps:

Step 1: Take old clothes off doll, then create a base so she stands on her own with the clay

DSC02061

Step 2: put up dolls hair in a kind of bun (you are going for the old victorian statue look), don’t worry if some of the hair sticks out, this will be fixed laterDSC02062

Step 3: wrap dolls torso in cheesecloth to make draped toga like top and secure at waistDSC02063

Step 4: wrap cheesecloth around waist and drape to form nice wrapped skirt and secure, I used clay to secure to top of dress and ensure edges and bottom were not ridged from cuttingDSC02064

Step 5: attach wings- I used the wire that came with them and wrapped it around the waist and secured with some glue at shouldersDSC02065

Step 6: cover your Angel’s hair with glue from glue gun, create texture and waves and here is where you can secure the fly-aways.

Note: I tried to do this step with clay at first but it weighed her head down to much, so glue it a better way to go for a lighter AngelDSC02066

Step 6: Take Angel somewhere open and well ventilated a spray with stone textured spray paint, follow directions and this step may require a few coats or touching up, let dry

DSC02070

Step 7: Don’t Blink and enjoy your Angel

I like how the Monster high dolls fingers are slightly ope, makes me feel like she is peeking, like hubby’s digital art

It happens everyday doesn’t it, what do I want to wear, to work, to play, on a date, to a party?

Weekend of Celebration

Friday was hubby’s birthday and as you saw, we did Borderlands 2 for his work celebration, so I am sure you are all wondering what I did for home, or who?!

That is right, Who.

Home was all Dr Who themed, starring Doctors 9-11, since that is where we started.

Here is the decor starting with the front door

Of course a Tardis door, I even included a beacon in the window to mimic the light atop the Tardis, I was going to cover the remainder of the door with blue crepe paper but it was threatening rain, so I just taped it up. Didn’t want to clean soggy crepe paper off everything, lol!

DSC02345

Instead of Police public call Box, I did Happy 29th year BirthdayDSC02347

The police box notice also reads birthday themedDSC02346

Inside, I “graffiti-ed”  Bad Wolf on our chalk boardDSC02344

Also marked some Silence encountersDSC02343

I strung Tardis and star string lights down the stairs and the Impossible Astronaut is floating right at the beginning of the stepsDSC02337

Up close Tardis and star lightDSC02339

I also made Garland with tons of Doctor Who quotes and pictures

I also took my foam head from halloween (he was the organ player for my haunted mansion) and gave him a new more doctor like get up. I made him a fez, 3d glasses and a bowtie, cause bowties are cool!

There are also some Tardis self destruct buttons (alright, they are jammie dodgers), some banana runts (since 9th liked bananas and since it was a party, we followed the 10th’s instructions to always bring one.)  The 10th’s sonic screwdriver made out of polymer clay.DSC02313

Would you like a jelly baby? We hear they were Tom Baker’s faves and the ganger 11th, seemed to like them too.DSC02314

I also made a journal of impossible things and the doctors fob watchDSC02315

Next to the table I made Amy Pond’s apple and another apple which hate things, like I hate apple, apple are rubbish on it.
 DSC02320

Glow jar with starsDSC02321

I made bowties are cool garland and decorated the tvDSC02324

Even Riddick got in on the fun, looking dashing in the bowtie I made him :) DSC02325

Hello Sweetie garland with pictures of River song in it (yes, I printed my S wrong, so it is backwards, was boring white on other side.)DSC02326

Who Wednesday – Don’t Blink

Hi guys, this is the final edition of Who Wednesday til we return from DISNEY WORLD!! Can you tell I am excited, I am going to be like that Disney World commercial, “I’m too excited to sleep!” for the next 3 days, did you see that?! 3 DAYS!!! OMG!!!

Anyways back to Whovian things, like I don’t know, Weeping Angels, how does that sound?! Or how about a Peeping Angel?! Intrigued?!

Good, today is one of my favorite of the Doctor Who Aliens, The Weeping Angel as portrayed by my wonderful hubby, Kristofer Floyd.

Here she is, “Peeping Angel”

Peeking Weeping AngelsIsn’t she beautiful?! I think she is one of my favorites from his Doctor Who series so far, I truly love the Weeping Angels and I adore this playful rendition of her trying to sneak a peek. I also really enjoy the lighting and the cracks on her skin.

I hope you like her as much as I do. If you want to see more of Kris’ work, leave him a comment, or order a print please visit DeviantArt or RedBubble

Now I did warn you not to blink but I forgot to warn you about an image of an Angel becoming an Angel, so don’t blink and good luck!

Sincerely, The Doctor (or Riddick posed as the doctor, cause “Bowties are Cool!”:) )

Have a great day, guys!

Who Wednesday, Doctor Who Fan Art

Hi guys, it is Wednesday and to follow the theme of the week so far, I am showcasing Hubby’s work. But this work is new and Whovian inspired!! Yay!

I was going to do them piece by piece to leave you with antici………pation! But I thought against it. These pieces are just too cool, not to be shown as a set.

All these pieces are digital from start to finish, created on painter 12 and believe it or not created in less than three weeks, WOW!! I know right?! When you get inspired you get inspired!

So while I have been trying to finish all my projects for Disneyworld, hubby has been slaving away on these masterpieces.

 Oodles of Contemplation

Humood Fin

I love this Ood, I believe Kris said it was Sigma. He has just these amazing thoughtful eyes.

Mercy

Dalek MERCY

A Dalek encountering the Tardis. The image is totally up for interpretation, I have been asked if he is crying or drooling. Either way is pretty perfect and we have enjoyed both ideas.

Mummy?!

Are You My MummyThe Empty child. I simply adore green and this is one of the coolest episodes in that season, in my opinion. I think the picture turned out amazing!

Enjoy The Silence

Enjoy the Silence

I hope you have your eye drives on because, this guy is too cool to forget! The Silence, by far one of the coolest Aliens encountered in the Who world. I truly love how this one turned out.

To see more of Kris’ work, leave a comment, or to order a print check out

Deviantart or RedBubble

I hope you guys loved this week’s Who Wednesday, I know I loved watching these be created and I enjoyed sharing them with you.

I thought I was the only one with a game plan for work (since me, hubby, my bestie and all our friends all work in the same building) but wow was I wrong! Lol!

I was ambushed!

This is what I walked into balloon

I adore this big Mickey and Minnie Balloon! I just LOVE mylar balloons!! desk

My hubby gave my bff free reign of the decorating and she said she wanted it to look like she “threw up Valentine’s” on my desk and yep. Looks like someone went crazy, had to remove half of the beautiful mess just to work this morning, lol!

bamboo

Oh and notice the awesome heart-shaped bamboo she got me, awwww!

And there was this box (the porcelain one was inside) from my bestie
gift

So as you know I am a Disney girl and it would be fitting that so is my bestie (I got her a dinglehopper brush, lol.)

My four favorite princesses are Rapunzel, Belle, Ariel and Snow White. Snow White being the original Disney princess has always had a spot near and dear in my heart and now with ABC’s Once Upon a Timethat love has been rekindled.

So bestie got me a Disney Couture Snow White Ring, so pretty!

ring

insidering

Inside it says “make a wish and take a bite”, love it! Thanks, Steph!

hubby

What he gave me so far is a fun chocolate rose and a Hoops and Yoyo Card (he knows I love them!)

When we got engaged, we did a wedding website and my prince, created this amazing fairytale about us for it (if you would like to read it click here ) Inside the card he wrote something similar to give me an idea of what tonight’s theme is. So needless to say I am excited, since everyday with my husband is like a fairytale :)

So since I can’t tell you what hasn’t happened, I can show you all the awesome cricut projects I made for the special day.
