    Hi

    Being a Dr. Who fan and a Weeping Angel one , I though about creating my own Weeping Angel cosplay for Austria's largest cosplay convention in Vienna

    Unfortunately Dr. Who is pretty unknown in Austria yet it still seems more and more people get to know and love it, anyhow it hurts if people think you're a Gargoyle

    It was pretty much work but 100% worth it and it's not as hot as one might think

    Enjoy

    Holy WOW! How did you do the cracking technique on the cowl of the dress? Is it painted?

    I love the costume. The only problem is, I'm afraid to look away from it. I keep hearing the Doctor saying "Blink and you're dead."

    Really top notch work you've done.

    Awesome job!!! Creepy and unique. That paint job on the skin impresses the crap out of me.

    Hi

    Yeah, the crack on the costume is painted, just a black line surrounded by a white lines, gives that high/low 3d effect.

    The skin paint job was done with different sponges and water based bodypainting color.
    Takes a bit over an hour to get it done, but it's really not that difficult, don't take too much water and dab lightly on the skin. I then did highlight some muscles and tendons with white color

    Very nice. I don't know why anyone would hate on gargoyles, but your angel looks great. Can you share what you did for the hair and wings?

    Oh thats simply superb work. My friend worked on the wings for the first version of the Angels for the show, and you've managed to recreate them beautifully.
