Archives For ballgown

Back in February I posted a great looking TARDIS ballgown that Crystal Maxwell was in the process of creating based on a design created by Anne Luise Richards.  While I thought it was great looking even as a work in progress, it is now finished and it is fantastic!

Last week, Crystal contacted me on the Fanboy Fashion Facebook page to let me know that the dress is now finished and that she had uploaded a bunch of pictures of the finished project.

Below are a few pictures of the finished TARDIS ballgown (which is beautiful) and if you would like to see more, I recommend checking out the entire gallery that she uploaded which has 25 pictures.

If she ever needs a date for the ball, I would definitely volunteer!

Where I live, we don’t have balls (the party kind) which I suspect is probably a consequence of living in a town of rather poor/cheap people.  Not that I would go to one anyway as its really not my thing and there is little I hate more than dressing up no matter how good I look when I do.  However, I could be persuaded to go to one if I had a date that was wearing a TARDIS ballgown like the one below!

Etsy seller loriann37 is selling this fantastic hooded TARDIS ballgown for $474.99.  This ballgown will be made to whatever measurements you happen to be and is made up of six pieces (front and back tie over-bust corset, aong a-line skirt w/trim, full circle mini skirt with trim, mid length add-a-bustle with trim – drawstring waist, hoodie bolero shrug, sleeveless black top w/lace).

If you are a lady that loves Doctor Who and has a ball to attend but nothing to wear, I’d say this TARDIS ballgown is for you!  If you do go to a ball in a TARDIS gown, I want to see pictures so hit me up via the contact page linked at the top.

Considering my aversion to dressing up, it is safe to say I have never been to an any sort of event where a ballgown would be worn.  Its not that I don’t look good dressed up (because I look damn good when I dress up), I just don’t like wearing anything where I can’t express my geeky side in a major way.  That and I hate anything with long sleeves.

Anyway, speaking of ballgowns, this beautiful TARDIS ballgown was originally designed by Anne Luise Richards.  Reddit user __queenofhearts decided to take this fantastic TARDIS dress design and try to create it for herself.  I’d say she did a pretty fantastic job and apparently its not even finished yet!

You can check out the big gallery of this TARDIS ballgowns construction which has a bunch of pictures to give you the idea of the work that went into it and some pretty good descriptions as well.  I’d say it was time well spent!

Apparently she plans to wear this at the FanExpo in Vancouver in April so if you want to see it in person, you are going to have to go to that con.
