WITNESS A GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT AT THE FAIRE! EVEN BETTER, BE PART OF THE TEAM.
Dalek Asylum Milwaukee will attempt the world’s largest gathering of Daleks at Maker Faire Milwaukee, and is drafting a Dalek Dream Team to make it happen. Classic construction, cardboard, Dalek costumes….anything goes, as long as costumes and other entries are “complete and clearly recognizable as the character or costume designated for the record set out in the specific guidelines, at the discretion of independent witnesses and the Guinness World Records organization. Any entry deemed unsuitable will be disqualified from the final total.”
Let’s do the math: Dalek Asylum Milwaukee currently has 22 entries lined up, and needs another 78 to break the record. There is a rather harsh rule about disqualifying the entire attempt(!) if 10% of the total number of entries are disqualified as incorrect or incomplete, or if costumes are removed during the attempt. So, let’s beef up the entries for good measure and the inevitable disqualifications.
