So Halloween is over (THANK GOODNESS - I tend to spend it behaving a bit like a terribly incompetent ninja and in constant fear the doorbell will ring) but that doesn't mean you can't start planning for next year, so I give you these Amazing Doctor Who costumes, which will set you back only about fifty quid and a large portion of your diginity:

The Dalek

The iconic Doctor Who monster, only available in that most Dalek-y of colours: weird brown. There are also arms. ARMS. So you can be some sort of terrifying even-more-mutant Dalek that is actually a FAIRLY SENSIBLE upgrade since you'll now have opposable thumbs and be able to use door handles and stuff instead of just shooting things. Which you can't do with this costume because THAT ISN'T A REAL DALEK GUN.

I do like how they don't bother with trying to hide the feet though.

The Cybermen

The best thing about this is how it's described as an "authentic costume" and it's made of VELOUR. VELOUR CYBERMEN. To be more authentic please take a hairdryer, some wellies, any clothes you like and a large can of silver spray paint. Spray everything silver. Get dressed, stick the hairdryer to your head and VOILA, a totally authentic Tenth Planet Cyberman costume. Probably.

The Eggcup

This is nothing to do with costumes or Halloween, but it is a Dalek egg cup. Why? Fuck knows. The important thing is what it's called: the Eggsterminator Egg Cup. I hope that brings you as much joy as it brought me.

Aargh! Yeah, that's exactly the sort of thing I'm likely to pick up and go ooooh at and be totally unable to resist when it's RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. Curses.

I never knew I needed an egg cup. I NEED IT BECAUSE OF REASONS.

Would you still be my friend if I wore that Cyberman costume at a con?

Yes. But I would be probably be verbally capslocking "IT'S VELOUR!!" at you an obnoxious number of times. Which wouldn't get annoying at all.

Bwah! :D:D They're really missing out on a market there: dildo TCE, all the various sonic screwdrivers, daleks, Cybermen, omg AN ALPHA CENTAURI. That would be brilliant, by which I mean hilarious.

Maybe there's an underground market we don't know about of Doctor Who toys aimed toward the adult portion of the audience.

"(Dalek)BUMPED, for her pleasure!"

Actually, no, that's stupid, that's a condom slogan, nevermind. *facepalm*

In unrelated news, I don't even like or eat eggs, and I still want one of those cups...

Dalek egg cup looks more like a Davros eggcup (though I suppose it could be a specialist dalek like the special weapons dalek only with an egg instead).

Is it me, or does it look a little bit, um, rude...?

I'm not sure whether it's a good or a a bad thing that they haven't designed one for adults.

Good for the bank balance, bad for the level of geeky joy in the world?

Also good for my self-image. Cause I can at least pretend I wouldn't get one.

I HAVE THAT. I HAVE THAT EGGCUP. Despite not eating eggs. Mostly I use it to stage tiny battles with my Star Wars M&Ms figures.

It still gives me great joy ;-p

I don't know what egg cups are for (I'm thinking hardboiled eggs, but I'm also thinking that no one in the world eats hardboiled eggs) but I do kind of want an Eggsterminator.

The costumes are for shit, though, especially when there's such good DW cosplay out there.

I eat hardboiled eggs!

But not regularly. The last time I ate them was months ago because I wanted to eat eggs yet also wanted a sandwich so I solved this dilemma by boiling them and making an egg sandwich.

And the last time before that was when I was like nine years old and loved to eat hardboiled eggs but then I had them one too many days in a row and got sick of them forever.

I'm not sure where I'm going with this.

It is so sad they tried for Ye Moderne Cyberman. The first generation were men in tights with boxes on the front; how hard would it be to make that into a costume? :P

Thanks for sharing that egg cup, it is brilliant and reminds me of how great humanity can be.
