Doctor Who TARDIS Corsets

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 Etsy.com.

The New Periodic Table Song


Hey guys – feel free to check out out Fundraising page to help get us to LA for the premiere http://www.gofundme.com/2qtlx8

The trip to LA will involve educational workshops, lectures with industry leaders, opportunities to network and of course our film will compete against other great student films across the country. We just need a little help to get there and be a part of it all!
