Dalek Dress Design by FangsAndNeedles Dalek Dress Design by FangsAndNeedles
one of my friends wants to be a Dalek for Halloween so I have designed this dress for her! I will also be making it, so hopefully a successful picture of that will be up soon too :)

In case you're wondering, Daleks are a form of alien/robot from the wonderful Doctor Who ;)

When I was considering a Dalek costume for a convention, I was going to get tennis balls and cut them in half, spray paint gold, and glue on for the bumps .... how are you thinking of doing them? I'd love to hear some other ideas about this ... it's still a consideration for future conventions :D

I actually used styrofoam balls. Not the scratchy styrofoam balls,
the ones that are more pressed, like the stuff you get in packaging.
I then cut them in 2 and brush painted them. you could do spray paint
on them tho, I'm just not a spray paint fan :)

Oh, that's a great idea! Takes down the weight too! Thanks.

Oh yeah, spray paint all the way for me ... mostly because I suck at hand-painting, I don't have a steady hand and get brush fibres everywhere :D

yup! they're very very light :D
I haven't made it other than doing the balls yet,
but yeah, the lighter the better

Totally agree ... last Halloween I had a Cheshire Cat costume and even though it was like 2 degrees outside (Celsius), I was sweating like a pig because the thing weighed like 35 pounds ... so yeah, definitely looking for ways to get stuff lighter this year :D

lol, no not really, but I used heavy fabrics (which was a mistake) and had to use two and three layers in places ... also, there were a lot of stuffed elements (paws for hands and feet, tail, tummy, with a full hand-made head) ... I should post some pics of it to DA, it's pretty epic!

Super pretty, and a great idea! My friend's trying to create a TARDIS dress for Halloween this year. Hopefully it ends up looking just as nice as this one :)

Thats AMAZING. I never realised that the dalek shape lends itself to a dress. The headband is a nice touch too :D

I looked at some other designs people had done, but none of
them seemed to work quite right for my ideas, so I tweaked
them to make this :)
