    Nov 20, 2013, 9:58 AM - Doctor Who Robots of Death costume #1

    I haven't seen this anywhere. Does anybody make costumes or masks from the Tom Baker episodes "Robots of Death?"

    I feel like I have seen reproductions of that mask. Not very recently though.

    This has been sitting around in my workshop for years. I'm not sure, there'd have to be a few people wanting them (maybe 5 or 6) or it'd be a bit on the expensive side to just make just one.

    You should start an interest list. This would make a great wall decoration.

    Doesn't seem like you'll have any problem finding 5 or more buyers! Time to start casting.

    There's a documentary in the ROD DVD extras that has some info about the costumes. The green fabric was shower curtain material that they quilted themselves. The ridges in the "hair" weren't sculpted -- they were part of how the clay looked out of the box and they just used it directly to save time.

    Glad to see someone has a nice head cast! And would love more info or pics of the chest plate that Eyes Only received.

    I have found some fabric that is going to fit the bill in my costume. It's a quilted duvet cover that is faux silk. I am also going to use a ribbed vinyl sheet with some silver tape attached with cloth gaffers tape to create the edge work. I attached some pics with the "bolly hand" pic being the original.Click image for larger version.

    The part that I'm struggling with is the wrist communicator. It looks like a small round disc with a hexagon with smaller stamped hexagons in it. That disc is mounted to some kind of buckle or ornate furniture mount or . . something. Any Ideas on what off-the-shelf stuff I cloud use to make one? Or should I just but the bullet and make one out of Sculpy or something else?Click image for larger version.

    I'd probably push an Allen wrench into some clay for a quickie mold for the small hexagon bits and make a base of a PVC knockout test cap.

    Wound up making this one from an art nouveau trophy belt buckle, six metal wire buckles, a Ball jar lid, sculpy pressed with a hexagonal honey jar, and a hexagonal pattern iPhone case. Total cost with epoxy and paint: a little over 40 dollars. It's not 100 percent accurate but it's good.Click image for larger version.
