Doctor Who Day 2012 At The British Emporium

I'm still going to be busy with photo editing from this weekend for a few days.  But I wanted to write a quick note about what I did today to steel myself before sequestering myself away for a time and mention a wonderful little shop in downtown/historical region of Grapevine, Texas.

The British Emporium carries a wide variety of British foodstuffs, souvenirs  and - our main point of interest - Doctor Who swag.  You have to love any shop that has a K-9 mascot and I have to pay tribute to them as the only place in DFW one can purchase Jelly Babies - a must have for any Fourth Doctor cosplayer.

They also organize an annual Doctor Who Day, with screenings, quizzes, costume contests and such.  I wish I had taken more pictures but I spent more time talking to people and posing for pictures than I did playing photographer.  It was a fun time and if you're an Anglophile in need of a certain special something, you might check their website to see about a mail order.
