To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, my mom and I attended a local convention called WhoFest! This was its first year and tickets for it sold out! I was only able to attend on Friday (it was a three day event), but still had a blast with all the other Whovians. There weren't any celebrity guests, but it did have numerous discussion panels, a cosplay contest, and a really great dealers room.
This was my outfit for WhoFest. I wore a Link/Doctor Who crossover shirt from TeeFury and the 4th Doctor's scarf from ThinkGeek.
This Dalek could light up, move, and yell Exterminate! at you! Eek!
My favorite costume was by my friend Jeremy (far right). He was dressed up as Craig from the "Closing Time" episode with baby Stormageddon.
This River Song outfit was spot on!
I also loved this Doctor Whooves costume. It's a My Little Pony character!
And my good friend CookieCupCakes was there, too in her fabulous homemade costume!
The dealer's room was very impressive. Even though it wasn't very big, the booths had some excellent Doctor Who swag to buy. I got a free poster with my ticket purchase and also decided to buy some arm warmers the same pattern as my scarf.
The Piranha Toys booth never disappoints either. It was a great photo area.
And here's the Dalek in action!
Oh no! It brought reinforcements!
They were building a Tardis the whole time we were there.. and almost had it finished by the time we needed to leave. It was made of wood and had lights in it and everything. Would be so cool to have this at home, don't you think? :)
