Hello, everyone! It's time for another Weekly Wednesday, and I have a treat for you. This week I've scoured Etsy and found some fabulous Doctor Who items! If you've never heard of or seen the BBC show, "Doctor Who," have you been living under a rock? You definitely should check it out! I started watching when Matt Smith was the current Doctor. I've since started watching the start of the relaunch, but I have yet to adventure into "classic" Who. There are many, many, many Whovians (fans of Doctor Who) across the globe who would love for you to join in on the Doctor Who fun, so why not whet your appetite with some neat little do dads?
Item #1 is from AlienEntertainment
Matt Smith, Doctor 11, had a thing for fezzes (and bowties). This patch is 4.5 inches tall and easily irons on to a backpack, jacket, or what have you. Why do you wear that Fez? "Because fezzes are cool."
Item #2 is from AFFPrints
If you've watched "Doctor Who" since the relaunch, you know that "Allons-y!" is a phrase used by the tenth doctor, David Tennant. All of the Doctors in the relaunch have a phrase they say when the adventure starts or when he is running away from the main antagonists of the episode. The print itself is of a voice image and "Allons-y!" I thought this was pretty neat because I've never actually seen a voice print before for Doctor Who. Something every true Whovian needs!
Item #3 is from VectorEngraving
I thought these earrings would be something super cute for a Whovian looking to show off the lover of their favorite TV show! These earrings are made of sustainably sourced (awesome!) maple wood and are etched with the TARDIS design
Item #4 is from TallTaleLaser
I saw this and was completely impressed at how neat this clock was. it has all the actors who played the Doctor as times on the face. If you aren't a Doctor Who fan, you wouldn't know what time it was or really what it meant. I guess you could just count it, but there would be no point in doing that, now would there?! It's almost like you have your own little secret club clock. The TARDIS and dalek are at the face's center--a nemesis and a true ally.
Item #5 is from Msemrick
Any Whovian know that when someone says, "don't blink," you definitely don't blink! You have to watch out for the weeping angels, who with one touch can send you into the past and feed of the energy for the present and future time that you would have lived. Technically you don't die, but instead are thrown into the past to live out the rest of your life. My fiance is really scared of these creatures and hides his fave every time they show up (he's leery of white sculptures anyway).
Item #6 is from scifistuff
Ok, guys and gals, here you go! This is a replica of Captain Jack Harkness's sonic blaster. What guy, gal, and tiny Whovian have ever wanted one of these to play with? Probably everyone! It also comes with an aluminum, lockable case. You'll be ready to go this next Halloween or Cos-play event!
Item #7 is from PoisonousFrog
Everyone know that Doctor River Song is a very important character to the Doctor Who story line. If she's one of your favorites, what a better way to show it than with this neat, distressed journal replica?! The journal is A6 size and hand-stitched and bound. It's a TARDIS style cover that is distressed by hand. This would be great to keep track of all your travelling (or time-traveling).
Item #8 is from geekcutter
Now you can have Doctor Who involved in every facet of your life! I present...the TARDIS cookie cutter/stamp! The cutter/stamp is printed by a 3-D printer and shipped to your home where you can make some yummy cookies and hopefully (fingers crossed) absorb some TARDIS energy.
Item #9 is from OrchardHouseSignswww.etsy.com/shop/OrchardHouseSigns?ref=l2-shopheader-name
This is probably one of the most famous quotes from the show. The wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey one. The images are done with paint, not vinyl, so you don't have to worry about the words peeling off. The wood sign is painted on is usually re-purposed (love this) from picket fences or damaged boards from hardware stores. Make sure to bring this quote into your home so that you may think about the "time" really is.
Item #10 is from Hx5Designs
Do any of you watch "Big Bang Theory?" If so, then you know the "Soft Kitty" song. That song is used to make Sheldon go to sleep. This pillow is a Doctor Who take on it. It's about the Daleks, who hate the Doctor with the fires of a thousand suns and want to exterminate him. This would be an awesome pillow for fans of both shows and definitely would be a conversation starter.
Item #11 is from SealedWithAStitch2
Anyone remember the Silence? Anyone? I didn't think so. They're the creatures that you forget you've seen after to look away unless you marked yourself of recorded yourself while seeing one like Amelia Pond did. I'm sure you're wondering, "If I just forget I saw them, they can't be that bad, right?" You're wrong my friend. Just because you forget that you saw them doesn't mean that they haven't left their influence on you. They can also shoot electrical energy from their hands (if you can call them hands), leaving a human as a pile of ash. The silence is important to the show because it involves the Doctor's "death." He cannot say his true name or he will restart a time war. If he can make them think he's dead, they won't come after him. In order to remember the silence, you need one of these in your home. Never forget.
Item #12 is from completelywiredjewel
Look what I've found! You can have your very own TARDIS key! Enter and you shall find that it bigger on the inside than the outside and travel through time! This vintage key is hand-stamped with "TARDIS" and placed on a stainless steel ball chain. Keep it one yourself in case of timey-wimey, wibbly-wobbly emergenices.
That's all I've got for you today my fellow Whovians! I hope you have enjoyed the selection I had for you today--I tried to make sure I had something for everyone! Make sure to tune in next week for another dose of some favorite items. Make sure to hop on over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
Until next time,
