A few weeks ago, I found this:
one in this illumination that is plain up top but decorated on the bottom. I like this idea. (The second one is also blue on the top! Woohoo!)
So, I figured I'd add some sort of heraldry to the bottom of the wagon. However, I still want to keep it TARDIS-esque for the lulz. Therefore, my first thought was to paint the Doctor's name in Gallifreyan:
I wanted something...less crazy. So I went with the seal of Rassilon instead. It's Time Lady-ie and it looks Celtic too. It's a win-win for the trailer!
Too bad I messed it up a bit. Basically, I drew it out and then cut it out with an xacto knife...forgetting things like needing to keep big empty spaces connected to the rest of the stencil. Luckily, duct tape does solve all problems.
..and I was way better with the second stencil that I wanted to create.
I thought about doing a couple of others but I think keeping it simple might be best. I'll test out the stencils on the trailer tomorrow.
BTW, if anyone else is doing Pennsic prep- Home Depot has packs of 6 Tiki torches for $5. They are the bamboo ones & a bit short but they are refillable. I bought two packs and plan on using them as the border around my "camp". :-) Or, at least, part of it.
