TimeGate 2016 Costume Portal panel: Who Knits

Hi folks!

It's Kim, Director of the Wardrobe Portal at TimeGate.

TimeGate is the Doctor Who and British Media convention in Atlanta, GA, USA, May 27-29th, 2016, at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center Hotel. The GoH is Paul McGann, the 8th Doctor. More info can be found here at the website:

https://timegatecon.org/

If you're attending, we have a panel on Friday just for knitters and related crafters. :) It's at 8 PM. Panels last 50 minutes.

Who Knits

The panel needs a couple more knitters. If you knit Four/Rose/Amy scarves, and want to show off your work, you're needed. :) Also, if you knit/tat/crotchet Who'verse items, please apply. Applicants need to describe their items/projects briefly.


My rules for panelists are easy common sense. :) Please be on time, be kind to other panelists, and answer politely when taking questions from audience members. Panels end at 10 minutes before the hour, as the Costume track shares space with the Lit track. If an attendee comes up to the table afterward to ask questions of you, please be kind but have them walk with you out to the hallway for more chatting ASAP.

Please forgive the lateness of this request, due to laptop woes, but I do need firm commitments by April 29th for this panel. I can *add* panelists after that, but your name won't be in the TG program book or on the TG program site.

Please reply here in the thread or send me a PM.

Another BAP

So I'm beginning to stitch another BAP. I just have to do it, since my last two BAPs have been so popular worldwide, not only on Live Journal but on DeviantArt too.

I've gobsmacked so many fans the past weekend at the "Science of the Timelords" event at the National Space Centre, Leicester that I decided to make a start on this one.

This one measures 32 x 23.1" on 14ct, have approximately 142,000 stitches and will use 50 different shades of Anchor.

The design is the promo picture used to promote the 9th Doctor and Rose on billboards in 2005.

Another two years undertaking I fear.
The Next Assistant?

Coming Shortly...

I've only got a bit left to do on my cross stitch of the 11th Doctor Matt Smith. Yes I know it's taken ages to stitch BUT I'll promise before the end of July he'll be posted.

I've stitched it on baby pink 14ct aida, unusual but it works as the design is in sepia tones and I've got no idea why the Anchor shade 1080 has lightened but it has caused shadows.

Speak to you all again sometime between now and the end of July.

Holiday Who - a colorway question

I've been invited to a party with the theme "Holidaze in Spacetime" and immediately thought of doing a Christmas-themed Tom Baker scarf, using the half-scale patterns from Illuminated Spaces. A Season 18 scarf lends itself nicely to a red/white/green palette, having only three colors to begin with, but I'm not sure it would be as immediately recognizable for what it's meant to be. I tried converting the Season 12 scarf to a five color palette (red/white/green/silver/gold), but I'm not as happy with it.

My options as I see it:

  1. Make the S18 pattern and hope it's more obvious than I think.
  2. Add two more colors to the S12 pattern.


Thoughts? Recommendations for what colors to add if I go with Option 2?

TARDIS Themed Prom

As a huge Doctor Who Fan, my daughter had to have a TARDIS themed Prom dress.....so she made one! Embelishment on the side bow is written in Circular Gallifreyan.....what else would it say? ALLONS Y! Even her garter (not pictured) had a TARDIS charm dangling from it! She has never taken any kind of fashion or sewing classes- learned how to sew from her Mum (me) and Youtubel! The crystals on the skirt represent the many stars in the Universe. Even the shoes (she decorated to wear once her feet started to hurt in her heels) have a "Universal" theme!

Doctor Who Father's Day Party Ideas + Cupcakes!

If you live in the US you know that Father's Day is coming up in a week or two. My dad and I are both big fans of Doctor Who. As Doctor Who fans know, there is a pretty great episode of Doctor Who called "Father's Day," so I was thinking this year of doing a Doctor Who themed Father's Day party for my dad. (Geeky, I know.) I am trying to come up with Doctor Who themed decorations and snacks. I found these cute and delicious looking Doctor Who blue velvet cupcakes on Pinterest and am definitely going to make these!
