Cardboard TARDIS  
Hello all! Last year for my sports carnival I dressed up as the TARDIS.

(I blacked myself out, and the Tom Baker on the side is my friend- she even knitted a long scarf herself.)

After weeks of diligent painting- and yes, I know, it's not quite the right shade of blue- I had the best possible costume in which to run the 100m sprint. Actually it was sort of hard to run fast inside the box, as it was heavy- it even had a cardboard top with a little fake light on top. Of course I came last in the race but hopefully I raised awareness of TARDISes at my school!

And I even made myself a pair of TARDIS shoes. I painted the canvas shoes with acrylic paint...

Unfortunately two of my friends got inside the TARDIS and tripped so it got a huge rip down its side, and I had to throw it out a few weeks later. It was not an easy decision to make.

For everybody else, apparently. I'm still not seeing them... I'll try from a different computer in a while and see if it's just the network being stupid.

Shame the TARDIS ripped, but it looked wonderful!

Too cool!

And it's not a bad shade of blue. All sorts of blue shades have been used on the TARDIS props over the years, I'm sure that's close to at least one of them.

Hahaha, thanks for being so understanding! I tried mixing the paint about five times but it was never close enough for my liking!
