Doctor Who thing: dressing up as the TARDIS

My pal Bonnie — aka bronxbee in comments here — attended New York Comic-Con weekend before last and took a ton of photos. Here I’m sharing some of the Doctor Who-related ones.

    I wore a tardis tank dress to fan expo. I didn’t consider myself as dressing up AS the tardis so much as showing my support of the show.
