Doctor Who 'Blink' weeping angel costume


Sr Member
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.

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?

This is a beautiful costume! You make it all sound so easy! Very inspirational. I really appreciate your detailed description. I wish I had more time on my hands so I could attempt it!

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! :)

LBlinc, that's one of the coolest costume compliments I've ever gotten! I'm so glad that seeing a person inside the costume took the scaries away. :)

Doctor Mitch, of course I'd be delighted if you used some of my ideas - that's why I shared them! Good luck!

Everyone else, thank you for the compliments! It amazes me that my bodged-together mess of paint and posterboard is still catching peoples' eyes after all these years. :)

Seriously, so so so amazing. My friend has recently gotten into Doctor Who and wants to be a villain for a convention we are going to next month and I suggested a Weeping Angel. This is great. Thank you for sharing.
