Tiki Dalek: INEBRIATE


Spotted at Renovation, the World Science Fiction Convention in Reno: this killer tiki-themed Dalek. I didn't catch the artist's name -- anyone know it? Leave a comment and I'll update the post.

Update: From the comments, Michelle informs, "Made by Kevin Roche. It also won Best in Show at the Gallifrey One (Doctor Who convention) masquerade earlier this year."
