The TARDIS from Doctor Who is a popular target for cosplayers. I’ve seen several dresses and corsets based on the time traveling spaceship, but Bewitched Raven’s Cosplay has an entirely different take on it. She created a warrior TARDIS that looks like a mash-up between Doctor Who and World of Warcraft. The costume features armor, a staff lit with LEDs and EL wire, and simple but effective makeup. Bewitched Raven’s notes on the build:
All armor was made from Worbla
The Lantern Staff holds 2 LED light, and blue EL Wire
The Under Skirt was made from custom printed fabric of the 10th Doctor’s Interior TARDIS walls
The Over Skirt was made from custom printed fabric of the TARDIS exterior
The Cape was made form custom printed fabric of the “Free for Public Use” sign trimmed in “Police Box” fabric
The shoulder scallops are the TARDIS windows with the Seal of Rassilon details.
The Belt is the “Police Box” Sign, with “St. James” and “Free for Public Use” embellishments
