"Dr. Who Anniversary" Dance in Steelhead
At 7PM on Saturday November 22nd, Steelhead held it's "Dr. Who Anniversary" Dance. It was fifty years since the famous BBC science-fiction show first aired. And with time travel being no stranger to Steampunk, The Steelheaders were all set to throw an event any Whovian would be proud of.
Tonight, Steelhead celebrates Doctor Who, Fifty years worth.
A TARDIS has landed in Club Gearz, simply enter the TARDIS (don't worry, K9 is there with instructions), and enter the TARDIS. Ballroom will be to the right.
Fun starts at 7:00 with two hours of Doctor Who related tunes provided by Fuzzball Ortega, with Willow Leafstorm providing the After Party Music at 9:00. Don't be late.....wait....it's about a Time Lord, we can travel in time....wait, it's the Doctor we're talking about....
To get to the event, one had to go to Club Gearz in Steelhead Boomtown. There, one would find a Tardis there, which one had to step inside ...
And as any Whovian will tell you, The Tardis looks a *lot* bigger on the inside. I think The Doctor tried to explain how it was to one of his companions, comparing how an object further away from another can appear as big or smaller than a similar but smaller object closer. Still confusing.
But this wasn't the time to get headaches trying to figure out how those things worked. Now was the time to play fun music and dance. And there was no shortage of themed avatars. Some were familiar to casual fans, such as the Fourth Doctor's outfit with the trademark scarf and the Cyberman. Others less familiar, such as the Weeping Angels. And on the walls of the Tardis, there were portraits of all but one of the eleven Doctors.
There was also a tiny-sized steam powered Dalek, although being a Tiny, it was devoid of the hate normal Daleks are known for.
And to casual fans, it wasn't always certain what was a Whovian costume, and what was Steelhead funnery.
One of the more unusual Dr. Who avatars was one of Cassandra, the self-proclaimed "Last Human" in the year Five Billion, whom was little more than a brain in a jar, and a face in the middle of her stretched skin, which had to be repeatedly moisturized by attendants, "Moisturize Me!" Her arrogant manner gets her some Michael Jackson jokes from The Doctor's companion.
Superman (Kalel Venkman) also showed up to join in the dancing.
Fuzzball Ortega, still in his purple skin from the Relay for Life season earlier this year, was the DJ for the event, mixing Dr. Who music with other sci-fi themes and other tunes. TotalLunar Eclipse was also there with Tensai Hilra.
And it wasn't long before the party had some crashers, in the form of a bunch of Daleks. But these were of two different kinds, "Imperial" and "Renegade." The result was the robotic villains ignoring the others and going after one another, resulting in a pile or blown up robot parts with the Steelheaders not getting a scratch.
A good time was had by all that night. Unfortunately since it was held in the Tardis itself, they couldn't go back in time to experience it again.
