Dr Who and other sci-fi decoration ideas
So my 21st is coming up and i want to dress up as Dr Who (the 11th one, not necessarily my favourite but I love him all the same and we share hair colour lol) so naturally my theme is Science Fiction.
I've been trying to think of decoration ideas and I don't want to spend a million dollars plus I like to do things myself if possible. i've thought about cardboard cutouts, paper machie and clearly aluminium foil will feature somewhere=] So i was wondering whether any of you had any ideas/suggestions? or any favourites? I may need to suggest characters to some of my less nerdy friends and I've also been thinking about incorporating famous quotes into my invites anything from Dr Who, Red Dwarf, X-files, Star Wars, Star Trek the list goes on... =]
cheers in advance=] may the force be with you=]
lol I think you are awesome...fo sho. I dressed up as Ten last Halloween. I own the red converse he used to wear! Ahh! Lol and maybe (if you really love Star Wars) you could incoporate C3PO, R2D2, and/or Yoda? They're the most recognizable characters from the series, and ones that your less nerdy friends would know.
why thankyou=] thats awsome=] gotta love DT's style=]. definitely those 3 are in, especially yoda, he's my fav=]. i thought about trying to make my own posters... there is also a cool paper machie creation of yoda on the site somewhere.
Have you seen the amazing tardis door mural?
I'm not suggesting you paint one of the doors in your house for a party, but this is worth a look at anyway as its awesome.
You could definately whip up some quick posters, but maybe if you had some old sci-related t-shirts you could make them into quick cushions. Theres a tute here:
or maybe just pin them up in a cool way- super cheap, but will hopefully still look funky.
i have seen the amazing tardis door mural! how good is it?! unfortunately im not having the party at my house and we rent so couldnt paint the door anyway... but i did think of doing it on a massive piece of paper and sticking it on the door, thanks for reminding me!
i dont have too many old ones but making cushins is a great idea! one of mine is near retirement but id feel better if i made into a pillow. thanks for the great idea!
I'm probably too late but there's an 11th doctor screen acurate name badge from the episode with the cyber men in the department store for $5 on esty
I can think of some ultra cheap ideas Tardis centerpeices (Made from cardboard) Theres an episode with a bin that moves on its own, so you could get a wheelie bin I guess. serve celery like what one of the first dr who's used to wear, lots of quirky things like that
i agree with Hannah as dorky and unique as posible. if it were me i would find some dr who themed coctails ( even though im only 18)
