If you go to sci-fi conventions like Comic-Con a lot, you know its pretty common to see people cosplaying as Daleks (it seems to mostly be women cosplaying as them for some reason), but never any Dalek’s cosplaying as people.  Well, apparently somebody decided to change that and make a Dalek dress up like the 4th Doctor.

Sadly, I have no idea who this Dalek belongs to (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit for this awesome cosplay idea) but I am very jealous as I would love to have my own Dalek too.

I am also curious to know where this picture was taken.  I presume it was at some convention judging by the guy in the background wearing a cape but I have no idea which convention it would be.

Star Trek fans will certainly be familiar with the Klingon slogan “Today is a good day to die!” and there is a pretty good chance that they will want this awesome shirt too!

The awesome people over at TShirtLaundry are selling this great Klingon “A good day to die” t-shirt for just $18.  In case you find the font a bit too hard to read (it isn’t the ideal font), it says “Perhaps it is a good day to die!!!”  As a huge Star Trek fan and Klingon lover, I will probably order this shirt as soon as I finish writing this post.  If there is one shirt that I need but don’t have, it is a Klingon shirt!

If you aren’t interested in living long and prospering, perhaps today is a good day to die (and buy this shirt)!

Over the past week or so, a few images have been released showing some Cybermen marching around the Doctor Who set for an episode set to air next year.  Well, apparently one Iron Man fan decided to take one of those images and work their photoshop magic on it to turn a Cyberman into an Iron Man version of the Cybermen.  Very clever!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who is the geeky person is that made this Doctor Who / Iron Man mash-up (if you know who they are, let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit), but they did a fantastic job with this picture!  If I had any cosplay making skills, I would love to sport some Iron Cyberman cosplay at some sci-fi conventions next year.

One of the things that would scare me about hanging out with Darth Vader would be the possibility of getting choked to death just because you managed to piss him off.  There are a lot of ways I wouldn’t mind dying, but being coked with the Force is not on that list.

Well, for the Star Wars fans out there that don’t mind a little choking humor, I think you will love this awesome Darth Vader shirt!

The geektastic folks over at SuperHeroStuff are selling this Darth Vader choking hazard t-shirt for $19.99.  The best part is you can save 13% with the coupon code “SUPHERO13″ which is good until 11/30/12.  If you are a big Darth Vader fan like I am, that is a tough deal to beat!  Don’t forget, Christmas is coming so even if you don’t buy this for yourself, perhaps there is a loved one that would love to get it this holiday season!

Not long ago I posted about a DIY Weeping Angel project that showed you how to make your own Weeping Angel Christmas tree topper and now it looks like somebody has decided to go a slightly different route and create a Weeping Angel Barbie doll.

Being a guy, I have never been into the whole Barbie doll thing, but for those that may have a few laying around that they are willing to sacrifice to a Doctor Who inspired DIY project, I suggest turning one into a Weeping Angel!

Sarah Franz-Wichlacz did exactly that and took a Barbie doll, a skewer, some hot glue, craft foam wings, and paint, and transformed Barbie into a Weeping Angel.  If you are interested doing this little DIY project yourself, I suggest checking out her post that has a ton of more pictures of the creations process.

Its that time of year again where your feet will likely be cold for at least the next few months and the best way to remedy that problem is with a pair of slippers.  I wear slippers all year around which is why I go through about a pair a year and these Tribble slippers reminded me that it is time for a new pair!  If you are a Star Trek fan and in need of a new pair of slippers, I have a feeling you will be buying a pair of these!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these Star Trek Tribble slippers that purr for just $24.99.  With every step you take, these Tribble slippers make the iconic Tribble purring sound and the batteries are included (which is a very good thing because I wouldn’t have a clue where to get 3 LR44 batteries).

Keep in mind that even if you aren’t a Star Trek fan yourself, Christmas is just a few weeks away and these would make a fantastic Christmas present!
