But we could thtill have a really good time.
Wilfred likes to cosplay. (This is him posing with his TARDIS lunch box)
Currently, he’s building a 10th Doctor costume.
Tomorrow he will finish his trench coat and his costume will be complete.
He’s even sewn two hearts on his chest so he can be a real Time Lord.
Wilfred asked me to take this picture to see what you think. He’s really proud of his neck tie. He cut it from fabric that looks like his favorite 10th Doctor tie and tied it properly around his neck.
Brian Williams/Pond sitting on the edge of the TARDIS eating his sandwich, drinking his coffee… Literally watching the world go by… I think that’s one of the sweetest images I’ve ever seen in Doctor Who.
Is that a gif anywhere? Can someone make that?
My husband is one of the biggest geeks/Browncoat/Sci-Fi lovers I have ever had the privilege to know. He is also 27 years old and dying of a terminal brain cancer.
He’s managed to hang on for 28 months with a cancer that kills more than 95% within 9-12 months. However, he has been degrading in his condition and was placed on Home Hospice Care in January of this year.
I am writing to you to try and fulfill a wish of his; after he passes my husband wants to have a portion of his cremains kept in a TARDIS urn. (The rest will be shot off in rockets he has built over the years with his friends.)
This has proven to be a bit of a challenge for me. I am only 25 and have not been able to work for the past two years to be his full-time caregiver; so hiring someone to make a custom urn is a bit out of my price-range.
Is there any way your awesome C4FL Regresty Readers might know of someone who makes custom urns? Or someone to make a TARDIS urn for him? I have been an avid daily reader of regretsy.com for a few years now and my husband just adores the “This is NOT Steampunk” column (Before his cancer he was in school to become the first “Steampunk Architect”).
With his cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme), we might have 3 months, or it might be a few weeks. I am really not sure how long it takes to make something like this, so I am trying to get this request of his addressed early, before he degrades further.
Please let me know if you are aware of someone out there who can make this. Thank you for your time.
The couple has since been identified as Kevin Pratt and Tashi King. Here’s a link to a news article about Kevin and Tashi. Here’s a link to a Fundly page to help the couple with expenses.
If you’re an artist who can help, Helen at Regretsy is asking that you email her with ideas, sketches, photos and a link to your store or portfolio. She will forward submissions to the couple, and let them choose.
I wish I still had access to a ceramics equipment. =( I would do this in a heartbeat.
I wonder… can anyone in the technical theatre scene help? Is there a way to make one in a prop shop? I’m not sure what the requirements for an urn are (how it needs to be built, etc), but seems like there are some kind of rules out there…
