Sure they’re hellbent on exterminating humanity, but as Whovians we can’t help but love a Dalek, particularly when they’re focused on simply being awesome and less concerned with those nasty death rays.

This fantastically shiny set of hand-painted 3D Doctor Dalek Acrylic Nails was made by Atra Materia, who runs the Gingerdead House Etsy shop.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Doctor Who-inspired nail art, but there’s something at once sinister and delightful about the fact that these rhinestone and metallic stud bespangled Dalek nails are modeled on fake human fingers. Either no live human would dare risk being the model or no Dalek nail could stomach (not that they have stomachs) being so close to a human.

Adventure Time + Doctor Who = Super Awesome
Relentlessly cheerful artist James Hance (previously featured here) painted this incredible “Adventure Timey-Wimey” mural on his 9-year-old daughter Maddy’s wall. From the Gunter Daleks to the BMO TARDIS to the Ice King as a Weeping Angel, it’s almost unbearably wonderful.
But wait, it gets even better because the whole concept was Maddy’s to start with:

"She had the idea for an Adventure Time / Doctor Who crossover, and had all the characters mapped out (You can see where I get my ideas from!)"

Prints of this awesome mash-up are currently available via James Hance’s website.

"Well, of course I’m being childish! There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes."

Sandbach, Cheshire, UK-based Playmobil member Emma J made is awesome custom set of steampunk Doctor Who toys featuring a TARDIS, a Dalek, and the 4th Doctor. Tom Baker looks great in tiny plastic form. We hope that beautiful TARDIS is full of Jelly Babies.

San Francisco-based design professor and illustrator Miguel Cardona transforms ordinary paper coffee cups into bold works of art. Because of the curved surface of his canvas of choice, each piece is rendered freehand and he thoroughly enjoys the challenges that this presents:

"You have this three-dimensional object that is in your hands, you can pull the cup in a different direction and hold the pen still. You can also hide a lot of flawed perspective. You don’t need a desk, it can be done anywhere, and to protect it, you can stack it in another blank cup. The cup itself can hold your art supplies and is itself, a display stand, it’s quite the perfect design."

Cardona’s subjects vary from pop culture character and icons to robots, monsters, and even bodily organs. But these beautiful illustrations aren’t quite as awesome as what he does with them. Miguel sells each finished piece for $20 and donates 100% of the proceeds to Project Night Night, which donates baby blankets, children’s books, and toys to children in homeless shelters.

We’ve shared a few different Dalek Christmas trees here over the years, but now, thanks to John Smith, we get to watch a Dalek decorate a tree of its own in this short video E-card entitled “A Very Dalek Christmas”.

How does a murderous cyborg trim a Christmas tree? We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say it’s going to be quite a toasty holiday for this particular Dalek. This awesome little video couldn’t be more perfectly titled.

Santa had better be careful when placing presents beneath this awesome Dalek Christmas tree. Just because it looks festive doesn’t mean it isn’t anything other than hate-filled and hostile.

These two awesome Doctor Who-themed cakes were created by the Bleeding Heart Bakery in Chicago, IL. It took their crafty bakers 12 hours to create the Dalek cake. It looks so good, we don’t know whether to take a big bite or run for our lives.

We were sorry to discover that the bakery closed in the summer of 2012. Fortunately we can still check out many of their astonishingly creative and skillfully constructed cakes via their Flickr stream, including individual photo sets for the Dalek cake and the TARDIS cake.

Michelle of gnomeclothes created these awesome Doctor Who costumes with and for her Whovian daughters. One of them dressed as the Doctor emerging from a TARDIS while the other wore a spectacular Dalek Caan costume. The family spent three months working together on these geektastic ensembles.

Visit Costume Works for more photos and to read about how they did it.

Peter Byrne photographed this awesome straw Dalek sculpture in a field in Nantwich in Cheshire, England. The giant malevolent cyborg was created by Snugburys ice cream shop.
Snugburys has been constructing incredible straw sculptures in their field along side Chester Road for the last 10 years. This year’s sculpture coincides with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
