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!
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?!?
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.
