BB Readers' DIY Costumes: Tardis Dress

In our Epic Halloween DIY Costume thread, Boing Boing reader Chris Spurgeon says, "My daughter rolled her own Tardis dress!"


      1. I don’t see why one can’t acknowledge that she’s attractive.  Obviously one shouldn’t act upon that unless one is in her age bracket, but it’s not like attractiveness spontaneously appears at the age of majority.  And since her costume appears designed to conform to her figure it’s a little beyond just being cute.

        Good luck, teenage geek boys, and godspeed!

  1. My daughter rolled her own Tardis dress!

    Sorry, but that just closes the door to any commentary we—as a people—can provide.

    1. I’m quite comfortable pointing out that she is physically attractive and (I assume based on the costume) a bit nerdy, making her more likely to be emotionally and mentally attractive. The light on the top is a nice touch as well. That’s a detail that says to me that she thought a lot about this costume.

    1. I don’t even want to think about the kind of Halloween experience she may have that will start with “Well, let’s see if you are spacier on the inside…”

          1. I get:

            This video contains content from Lionsgate, Beggars and UMG, one or more of whom have blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

            Which is weird since your IP tracks to the same country as mine. Of course, my IP has tracked to Flint, Michigan for the last year despite me being in Palm Springs, 2,000 miles away.

  2. Or you guys could just stick to “nice costume.” After all, that’s what this photo and thread are about. You weren’t asked to comment on your personal physical attraction to her, so whether or not it’s age-appropriate, it’s totally off-topic.

    1. I think it’s usually good to comment on salient aspects of a post that aren’t what the poster was thinking about. I think the reason not to comment uninvited on someone’s attractiveness is to increase the chance that they’ll feel like they can be part of the community and still maintain control over their sexuality.

  3. Blimey, you’re a naive one aint yer.  You are damn lucky it’s as restrained as it is.  Have you ever actually met the internet before?

  4. I’m not sure how to respond to this, I’m torn between:
    – Fantastic!
    – Brilliant!
    – You wear a TARDIS now? TARDISes are cool!

  5. Very nice! I think it would have been even better with a longer skirt (saying which, I realize, might mean I have to turn in my guy card), but the light on top is the best bit. Especially if it can flash and “vworp” as the wearer desires.

    1. OT, but if I ever build that Tardis enclosure for an upright air compressor behind my shop, I’m going to make the light oscillate when the compressor runs.

  6. She looks great, but can she make that grindy grindy rrrruhrrrr rrrruhhrrr sound of when you forget and leave the brakes on?
