My Peg Doll costume from Dr Who

Well, tonight the next Doctor Who episode aired. It featured some very disturbing dolls.

But before I watched the episode, I dressed up.

Me as a peg doll!

I got the entire costume together in about twenty minutes. The makeup took up three-fourths of the time - I used aloe, then covered it with baby powder for a distressed look. Then I used eyebrow pencil on my eyelids to make them dark, like the dolls' eyes.

It was fun to lurch around with my eyes closed and scare people.

  1. I'm quite surprised they got scared. If you do something, do it well. 20 minutes isn't enough to do a whole costume. Mine took 5 DAYS. A little tip is not to raise your arms, keep them low and limp.
