Having been raised by television it is always hard to ask a child to realise it is not real. Yes! Believe it or not the world of TV shows are all smoke and mirrors. And still till this day I will never forget seeing Doctor Who gets filmed near to where I was living at the time because I saw something that will remain with me forever. I saw a human climb out of a Dalek! I just wanted to believe that they were robots or something like that, not real people! But I am not alone in my ridicule of them as it seems other people also know the truth about this fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants and have decided to make them a laughingstock…
Top 10 Funny and Unusual Daleks
10 – Wills ‘n’ Kate! WILLS-N-KATE!
I can’t imagine that the Daleks would ever enjoy a royal wedding but it seems Chris Balcombe ( a fellow Whovian) thinks so and that is why he made this rather silly looking Royal Wedding Dalek. Adding a splash of colour really makes a Dalek look daft.
9 – Your death sun will never kill me! EX-TER…MIN….help me.
What I liked about this one was that it was just so simple! A cup on a stick and a scarf! Best of all is that you can visit my post “Top 10 Unusual Scarves and Neck Warmers” and get that exact Tom Baker scarf! Might have to make one of these next winter myself!
8 – Balloonerminate…BALLOON-ER-MIN-ATE
This Doctor Who Dalek balloon costume is in fact rather creative and sure to get some heads turning at a fancy dress party. Made by Whovian Patricia Balloona it is not bad at all given the fact that she only had 4 months experience! True skills indeed.
7 – Snackmenate…SNACK-ME-ATE
Edible Daleks just don’t get any better than this awesome looking cake! Is this the tastiest looking cyborg ever made?!? It might well be, and best of all is there is a full on guide to making it in the image link, so get clicking and get exterminating!
6 – Eggsterminate…EGGS-TER-MIN-ATE
Long term fans of my blog might well remember this painted egg dalek from my post “Top 10 Nerdy Painted Easter Eggs” and it is still a classic funny dalek just because of the egg jokes you can add to it.
5 – Blowmeout…BLOW-ME-OUT!!!
Why did that title tag sound so read when I read it back?!? Anyway, this hand-blown, glass Dalek is just pure awesomeness and well worth looking at, sadly not much is known about its maker Jonathan over on Anglotopia.net, but sadly I couldn’t find it.
4 – Germinate…GER-MIN-ATE!
On that dreadful day when I saw the man/actor climb out of a Dalek it would not have been half as bad if I had seen it full of flowers! Then I might have thought that at least scary plants were taking over the world .
3 – Christminate…CHRIST-MIN-ATE!
It is a bit early (or a bit late) for this one, but for Christmas 2013 it is still a great idea and one that really doesn’t need a making guide because it is not that hard to work out how to make your own. Might even have to do this to my own tree!
2 – Hulate HULA-ATE!
I couldn’t find out anything about this hula inspired dalek, but I brought a smile to my face the moment I saw it and that is what these images are supposed to do, so I included it.
1 –Candinate CAN-DIN-ATE
Say hello to Dalek Candi. It/she was created way back in August 2012 to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and even today you can still donate some nerdy money over at: http://www.justgiving.com/DalekCandi Great idea, great charity and one Dalek that I still have much respect for.
