As many of you may know, this weekend the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who was celebrated with a special episode aired around the world. The local historic Kiggins Theatre, served as the venue for a celebration event organized by Chelsea, the fabulous lady pictured below. We followed each other on Instagram, but had never properly met since perhaps the showing of the Christmas episode last year, but seeing as how the community in town is small, and we share the same interests, we were bound to get together sometime!
I finally officially met her the day before, when Ruth and I offered to help set up the odds and ends of the event. It was a fun day of hanging out around the old theatre, and talking to new people, and the more time I spent rolling posters and writing "Bad Wolf" on the sidewalk, the more excited I got.
The celebration started Saturday morning, and when we arrived the line was wrapped around the block, so many people dressed up, and waiting in the freezing cold. Obviously we have some dedicated Doctor Who fans in town.
The place was packed from the get go, and Chelsea had set up Dalek pinatas, pin the face on Cassandra, themed refreshments, door prizes, and a costume contest, to name a few.
I stole some of Sams clothes and went with a Captain Jack Harkness cosplay, and Ruth made a sparkly felt skirt with the tardis and a rose stitched on, and we decided she was "wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey".
Though honestly, I think my absolute favorite part of the celebration was seeing so many children really excited about it. Sometimes I forget it's a kids show at heart, and loved being reminded to sit back and enjoy the magical whimsy of it all.
