The Doctor's sonic Screwdriver. I love that little bugger. Made for [link] , but this is a bigger picture to show the detail, which there isnt that much of because I knew how small it would be in the first pic.
in devastation of the end of David Tennant's run as the -lovable, quirky Doctor Who, i made a wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey... thing in his honor for his run. David Tennant, we will miss you as the Doctor.
for anyone who doesn't watch the series: 4 heartbeats: the heartbeat of a Timelord is in the rhythm of fours. our man here (Mr. Harry Saxon or more notably, The Master ) had the rhythm in his head since he was a child and it drove him mad 3 companions: the Doctor always travels with a human companion because he thought he was the last Timelord (until he finds Mr. Saxon). from left to right is Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper), Martha Jones (played by Freesa Aygeman), and Donna Noble (played by Catherine Tate) 2 hearts: Timelords have two hearts. if one is damaged, then it can be repaired but the Timelord has to regenerate, which means he gets a new body entirely 1 Timelord: no matter how many bodies he uses and no matter how many people play him, there will always be one Timelord. And the best of them all besides the dude with the wacky hair and scarf is David Tennant.
ok, call me a nerd, but I have made my own custom sonic screwdriver prop. It's is soooooo much better than the expensive yet made cheap-o store bought ones, though it doesn't make noise (yet). It's pretty good for just throwing some junk together and glue it to a light up pen. ^_^
Anyways, the list of things/materials and whateever I used to make this:
1 pen with a light on the end (my was a Batman pen I got free from a convention which I had several of so why not. Just took out the "bat signal" on the light
a roll of black electrical tape (for looks, hiding things, and holding things while they dry)
a strip of white tape (accent strip/color)
a strip of "metal tape" basically a roll of alumimen foil with a sticky side (accent strip color, and hide some odd ends when the white tape failed to look good. Ex, towards the top under the head.)
1 blue (or w/e color you want to use) marrble with a flatten side
3 hair clips (cut to pices and used some of the slected ends to decorate the head)
1 caligaphy pen tip (I have TONS of these and some repeated, so what the heck, it looks good on there and used it as the "switch" button.)
1 piece of some random part that used to work in some random electornic that was broken and was going to get tossed anyways.)
some gold colored wire (finishing touches on the random electronic part I used)
1 black tip with an opening on each end (No clue what it is, but if fits prefectly around the pen tip and I can still write with it, Bonus)
and clear glue. Not crappy glue, jewlery glue (though it takes a LONG time to dry full, it has a quick grab/hold so it dosen't ooze, dip, or move the parts. The problem with superglue, is that it tends to run and drys crusty, at least that is my experience with superglue, also it dries too quick. Say you want to change something, you can't with the superglue.)
The look is similar to the Doctor's, but with a few little added things for style.
