Homemade TARDIS build by EruwaedhielElleth Homemade TARDIS build by EruwaedhielElleth
My pet project for the last couple of months: A life size backyard TARDIS! XD It's made mostly from cardboard and duct tape built over a wooden frame, with working sound and light effects (read: blinking flashlight, outdoor light, extension cord and speakers) The original plan was to make it more detailed, and paint a console room inside but it soon became clear that wasn't going to happen. It turns out that duct-tape doesn't have as strong a hold after a few days outside, and neither wood glue or contact cement seemed to work so it was all I could do to keep the walls where they belonged. Even with a wood frame it tried to take off without us several times, (lots of wind, + large cardboard surface = TARDIS kite! [link] ) we ended up having to use six tent stakes on the inside to keep it from going anywhere! :P

It originated as a fun idea I had for December 21 2012 (You know, the day the world was supposed to end?) what better time could there be to have a TARDIS in your yard?! But unfortunately I underestimated the time and work it takes to make something like this, so it wasn't ready in time. It wasn't in the best shape by the time I actually got it off the porch either, having been rained on several times already, but with a little help (my fiance came to visit, also a DW fan, and we worked on it for a few days) it's finally repaired and vortex-ready!

There's just enough room inside for two chairs and a small table, (anyone know anything about trandimensional engineering?) so we got to cuddle up and have a Doctor Who marathon with my laptop computer. :heart: Our parents probably think we're nuts, if that's our idea of romance. :p

Overall, it was a lot of fun to make, and even if it doesn't last very long it was definitely worth the effort. :D I plan to keep the frame, and who knows? maybe someday I can try to make a better one out of wood.
