The adventures of Bumpy and Zappy. What began as a 60% scale costume for our 8-year-old daughter years ago has grown into a fleet after the challenge was issued by my wife: “You built a scale one, can you build a full-size one for me?”
Bumpy MK1(60% scale) was eventually outgrown, as was Bumpy MKII (75% scale). Now 92% scale is under construction using 3D printed parts.
Thus Old Dominion Daleks has begun, spreading our love of Daleks through appearances at science fiction conventions and library events where we explain the history and construction techniques of these iconic Doctor Who villains.
Our construction of these Daleks has been featured in: Creating the Character Costume: Tools, Tips, and Talks with Top Costumers by Cheralyn Lambeth.
