THE DOCTOR WHO SOCIETY OF CANADA ATTEMPTS TO EXTERMINATE A WORLD RECORD
  •  
    DALEK COSTUMES:  WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT TAKING PLACE AT FAN EXPO TORONTO ON AUGUST 24
    The Doctor Who Society of Canada (DWSC) returns to Fan Expo Toronto on August 22-25, 2013 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  The DWSC will be exhibiting Canada’s largest ever collection of operational Daleks and are asking Canada’s cosplay community to join them in breaking the World Record for the LARGEST GATHERING OF DALEKS.  To qualify for the record, participants need to come in Daleks or costumes ‘closely resembling a Dalek’.  The attempt will take place on Saturday August 24, 2013 at Fan Expo Toronto – North Building.  All ticketed attendees can participate provided they come in full costume (for more information about the attempt and minimum costume requirements please visit www.doctorwhosociety.com, www.Facebook.com/GatheringOfDaleks and http://Dalek-Invasion.Freeforums.netwww.doctorwhosociety.com, www.Facebook.com/GatheringOfDaleks and http://Dalek-Invasion.Freeforums.net).
    Cindy Peters, Co-Founder of the DWSC, said, “Cosplay is a huge part of coming to conventions and the Doctor Who fans are increasingly visible.  The DWSC will have Canada’s largest ever collection of operational Daleks at this year’s Fan Expo Toronto and it only made sense to bring Canada’s cosplay community into the mix.  This attempt at a world record is our way of honouring Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, while proving to the rest world that Canada is a haven for enthusiastic and life-long Doctor Who fans.”
    In November 2008, the largest gathering of Daleks was achieved by 95 participants at the National Space Centre, Leicester, UK.  At the 2013 Fan Expo Toronto, The Doctor Who Society of Canada will attempt to break this record in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who – The world’s longest running Science Fiction program.
    Thousands of attendees will visit Fan Expo Toronto, Canada’s largest Fan Convention, with the biggest draw being the appearances of over 40 genre and sports celebrities including Colin Baker (Sixth Doctor from Doctor Who).  For many, Fan Expo Toronto also presents the chance to come dressed as their favourite genre characters, which includes Doctor Who costumes and make-up, as their ultimate show of fandom and vacation from reality. For more information about Fan Expo Toronto, which is expected to draw over 90,000 fans from across the universe, please visit www.fanexpocanada.com
