Doctor Who TARDIS Corsets

Doctor Who TARDIS Corsets 570x467 SR Geek Picks: The Punisher: No Mercy Teaser, Justice League Families, Harry Potter + Gravity, & More!

This nerd-tastic cincher is a fantastic item to make you the center of attention at the next Convention or Whovian gathering. It shapes the waist beautifully with 14 total plastic bones (but don’t let that deter you. This German plastic boning is just as sturdy as any spiral steel), and a heavy four-prong busk down center front for support and wearing ease. It is lined in heavy cotton twill for stability.

The custom-designed Doctor Who TARDIS Corsets are available for $175-$250 at

  1. That’s an awesome shirt, Chuck. Too bad I’m on a budget.

  2. the caption for gravity should have been “dont you dare!” haha

  3. mmmm … food art.

  4. That Punisher video wasn’t very good.

      • Agreed, Dirty Laundry is soo much better… well except for that damn Dark Knight music, which is terrible distracting.

      • Fantastic video. Hans Zimmer’s score sucks us out of the film though. It reminds us that the filmmakers are using music from The Dark Knight (The song is called “Why So Serious?).

  5. My only thing about the human torch being black is this. Why does he have to be black? Why can’t he be Indian, Chinese, Hispanic, or any other race? If the goal of these kinds of changes are diversity, why can we actually diversify? The truth is that there is a “blackening” of America, and it is starting to get out of hand, because there are so many other groups that should be allowed to be represented. If we’re going to change white characters to something else, then atleast diversify the change.

    • “Blackening of America is getting out of hand?!?” Lmao. I’m going to try my best to avoid addressing the many many many things that are wrong with that statement that a black man such as myself would normally be a little upset about and keep my response civil.

      Hollywood is a money making machine. A business. That is all. Therefore you should remember that its not about “diversity,” its about appealing to a broader audience. With that said, it would be ignorant to pretend like we aren’t all aware of the fact that the “main” two races in this country are black and white, therefore since whites are represented 99.9999 percent of the time in film, the logical next step is to try and draw in black audiences.

      Honorable mention to Hispanics. Lol.

      • How come you guys can’t stay alive in movies?

        • I don’t normally spit things out of my mouth while reading… but your comment Doctor has won this round! Good job! I think a booger might have shot out of my nose as well!

        • Heeeeelarious. I have no answer sir. lol
