Last year, the ten year old wanted his costume to be the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who. He’s his favorite because “Matt Smith rocks and bowties are cool!”
Although we didn’t find the exact colors of the wardrobe on the show, we used it as inspiration, it was easy to put together, and Joshua’s costume was awesome.
I also made him a Tardis box to carry all his candy in.
Here’s what you’ll need to look for to recreate your own version of Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor:
A bow tie
A sport coat
A button down shirt
Jeans, cuffed at the bottom
A sonic screwdriver (available on Amazon)
A Tardis box for candy
Tardis Candy Box:
Blue paper (I used wrapping paper, but you could use construction paper or even poster board)
White contact paper (or white paper and glue)
Black duct tape
Clear packing tape
1. Cut the end off of the shoebox
2. Wrap the box in blue paper
3. Use duct tape to create the handle by folding a long piece together (sticky sides touching), & attach it to the inside of the box using more tape.
4. Cut rectangles from white contact paper for the windows and attach them (or cut & glue white paper)
5. Use the sharpie to add details
6. If you want to make sure the paper doesn’t rip or tear, wrap the whole box with clear packing tape.
7. Line the top of the box with black duct tape for extra reinforcement
We made this last year, and my son still uses it to this day to hold his toys, and it’s held up just fine.
