    This is gorgeous! I am attempting to make my own version of the angel costume for a St. Louis con in a couple of weeks. I have a question for you. I am using a polyester gray fabric and attempting to add in my highlights with acrylic paint but it keeps getting absorbed and disappearing! Do you have any suggestions or did you have this problem with yours? Oh! And did anyone notice your toe-nailed feet or do you think i can skip it?

    I started making my weeping angel costume for AWA next week about a month ago... needless to say I'm still fixing issues. one of my friends led me here, and although I had general ideas about how I was going to accomplish my costume i was floored by how good yours looked and borrowed the hula hoop idea, and now I'm going back to borrow the hands too. I did it a different way 1... 2... 3 times, and haven't been satisfied yet haha! I ended up sculpting my mask and hair using sculpey and then attaching it to tights, and used insulating foam sheets (1/2") and carving them down to how i wanted them to look. they turned out great, but I hope no one ever compares mine to yours, mine'll look so childishly done! thanks for all the write up, great pictures and such. awesome! and if you come to AWA I hope I get to see yours!

    Have to say thanks here, for the ideas and solving problems I thought I'd hit when I tried this, for the amazing costume, and for leading me to the RPF.
    Did you get to do the mass photoshoot at DragonCon, and if so..can we see them please

    Here's mine at AWA this past weekend. I wish I knew the person that actually took this, but their username is there so give them props! And... Luckily I had my friend dressed in my 11th doctor costume to help me get around! If it doesn't show just search Flickr for weeping angel AWA

    These costumes are some of my all time favorites at the con. I love leaving the costume area, coming back and finding the face change. Excellent work.

    I joined this forum solely so I could post a reply saying that, in 20 years of cons, this is the greatest costume I've ever come across, and is my absolute favorite. Thank you so very much for sharing!

    To the OP, I am floored by your Angel, and also a bit surprised I missed this thread for FOUR YEARS. It's up there with the best Iron Man builds for "most impressive costume I've ever seen" - huge props to you.

    You did an amazing job!

    P.S. Do you happen to know the circumference of the hoola hoop you used?

    I have to say - this is simply fantastic craftsmanship! Would you mind if I used your guide (of a sort) to make a Weeping Angel costume to use at various Cons for myself?

    That thing is damn creepy! I don't remember who was telling me, but they said I should watch this particular episode as I've never seen the show. You've definitely gotten the point across to me! Great job on the costume!

    I would first like to say that I was not a member of this site or had ever even been to it before now. I created this account specifically to comment on this thread. I realize it's quite an old post but I was searching for 'Blink'. My daughter has started watching Doctor Who with me and LOVES it (she's 5). I made a bad judgement call and didn't skip this episode and since then, she will not sleep in her bed! These angels terrified her even though I explained to her that it wasn't real. So I found your post and was able to show her step-by-step how the angels are created and that they are, in fact, fake. I realize this wasn't your intent in posting this, but you have just helped a little girl conquer her fear. Your costume was so realistic and seeing your face under that mask sealed it for her. So, THANK YOU!
