On Saturday I attended the Time Lord Ball at Whimsic Alley, dressed as Madam Vastra, everyone’s favorite lizard-woman detective (pictured here with two lovely 10s). My make-up was done by my extremely talented mother, my costume was a huge hit, and I had a blast. Met fun people, ate “fish fingers” and custard, and got my groove on. Cosplay is fun!
I’ve got a brand-new selection of ornaments in my uGeek Etsy shop! All are hand-painted copper, made-to-order. Order before December 10th to get them in time for Christmas. I’ll relist sold ornaments as long as I have the materials to remake them.
New paints and more copper on the way, but supplies are limited. Don’t see the design you want? Custom orders are available!

Share a secret message in the language of the Time Lords with a hand-painted copper ornament. What it says is up to the Whovian who chooses it.
I’m now offering custom Gallifreyan ornaments (or pendants, if you like). Any message you want, up to 5 words because after that, it’s too difficult to paint.
Geeky Ornaments by uGeek Designs
From Doctor Who to Star Wars to The Hobbit, make the holidays a little nerdier with one of these hand-painted copper ornaments. Don’t celebrate Christmas? Get one to hang in your window, from your rearview mirror, or on your bedroom wall!
There are some actors you see as guest-stars all the time (mostly male), and there are some who always seem to pop up on the shows that end up at Comic-Con. Just for fun I made a couple charts which are by no means scientific and heavily biased towards things that I watch.
The information I gleaned from this exercise in utter boredom is that no one comes close to stealing Mark Sheppard’s title as Über Geek Guest Star. (His part on Doctor Who alone makes him untouchable.) John Pyper-Ferguson is the surprising #2, with Mark Pellegrino tying with the up-and-coming Amy Acker for 3rd. (They all get points for frequently playing villainous and/or crazy.)
Other notes: Sam Anderson should get extra points for his lengthy career as ‘That Guy,’ including The Good Wife, The Closer, or Criminal Minds would shake up the scores, and everyone has been on a CSI or Law and Order. (I came very close to figuring out how many actors have appeared on all incarnations of either franchise.) This could really go so much further, but I’m procrastinating, not insane.
Something’s been bugging me about the Weeping Angels for awhile; the angels themselves are definitely creepy, all that sneaking up on you if you stop looking for just one instant and the stone teeth, but their methods of ‘killing’ aren’t really so horrible.
Yes, what they do to people is terrible, ripping them away from their loved ones and stranding them in an unfamiliar time, but the fact is that the Angels’ victims still get to live. To ripe old ages from everything we’ve seen. (There hasn’t been a single victim who died young after getting Angeled.)
So while no one wants to get nabbed by a Weeping Angel, there are far worse fates in the Whoniverse. (And many ways to send messages through time to offer some measure of closure.)
