At this month's "Doctor Who" convention Gallifrey One, some sci-fi-loving parents took nerdy creativity to a new level.

Convention-goer Robert Chan snapped this picture of 4-month-old Vin Meyer in a stroller designed to make him look like a Kaled mutant inside a Dalek travel machine -- a nod to some of the most iconic characters on "Doctor Who."

Baby Vin's mom and dad Crystal and Will Meyer were overwhelmed by the response to their son's stroller. "We couldn't get very far on the convention floor without being surrounded by people wanting to take pictures," Crystal told The Huffington Post, adding, "They were genuinely really, really pleased."


Dad Will said it took him roughly two weeks to construct the Dalek around Vins' stroller and sew the baby's Kaled costume. The Meyers added that their top priority was to make sure that Vin was "very safe and comfy."

Stealing the spotlight on the convention floor, Vin had a great time at his first Gallifrey One, Crystal said. "He loves people, so he was happy to be the center of attention."

Baby Vin may only be a few months old, but it's clear he's already a true "Whovian."
