Grab your sonic screwdriver and regenerate into the 11th Doctor. Like all generations of Dr. Who, the 11th Doctor has specific costume details. He is often portrayed wearing a camel-brown suit jacket and red bow tie while sporting a fez. Whether you plan on saving the Earth from the Daleks or the Silence -- or you just want to do a little cosplay -- it is easy to pull together existing pieces into a true 11th-generation Dr. Who with the edition of a handmade fez.
Things You'll Need
- Cylindrical ice cream container
- Craft glue
- Red felt
- Permanent marker
- Glue gun
- Metal brad
- Black tassel
- Large round cloth button
- Button shank remover
Trace the bottom of a half-gallon ice cream container onto red felt. Use a permanent marker so the line is easily seen. Cut the circle out and then set it aside.
Outline the bottom and top edges of a washed-and-dried ice cream container with craft glue. Lay the red felt on a flat surface, and roll the ice cream container across the felt. The glue will leave pattern marks on the felt. Cut the felt 1 inch above the top and bottom glue lines.
Cover the outside surface of the ice cream container with craft glue. Wrap the felt around the container. There will be excess felt on both ends of the ice cream container. Allow the glue to dry.
Cut vertical lines into the excess felt in intervals of 1/2 inch. Place a dot of hot glue inside the open side of the ice cream container and fold the fabric over. Secure it in place. Place hot glue on the closed flat surface area of the ice cream container and fold the fabric over the edge. Press it down firmly. Glue the red felt circle onto the bottom of the ice cream container.
Insert an awl through the top center of the covered ice cream container to create a hole to secure the tassel. Open the metal brad. Place the looped end of the tassel between the metal arms of the brad and then close. Place a dab of hot glue over the hole in the top of the container and then quickly insert the brad through the top. Secure the brad in place.
Cut the shank off the back of a cloth button. Add a dab of hot glue onto the top of the brad. Glue the black cloth button in place.
Tips & Warnings
- Work fast when using hot glue.
- Always make sure the glue is completely dry before proceeding to the next step.
- Use a silicon potholder to keep glue from sticking to the table.
