Beware the Weeping Angels  
Y'all might have noticed that your friendly community moderator has been slacking a bit lately. No updates. No organizing. What the heck was she doing that kept her so busy elsewhere?!

This.



Absolutely MASSIVE amounts of pictures under the cut, sorryCollapse )

This is the 'making-of' post - if you want to read the 'in-costume' post, it's over here on dw_cosplay.

Oh. My. GOD!!

I would have *loved* to see this costume in person!! Man oh man!

On seeing the first pic, without reading in detail yet, first thought was "where did the statue get found?" followed by "hmmm....done by hand, maybe? Wowzers!!" Didn't realize, until I actually read in detail...that that was a DRESS!! And FABRIC!! It really does look like stone to me!

Wow....absolutely AWESOME job!!

And don't eat me! (Or whatever it is the angels do--I haven't seen the episode in ages, as we're rather lacking in the fundage to get the DVDs at the moment.)

*grin*

This is the greatest, best, most awesome costume I have ever seen in my entire life. Thank you for sharing the how-to... even though about 1/2 way through I realized I would never have the patience or stamina for a project like this. And then I got to the part about making the gloves and putting fingernails on them! You are amazing. I've never actually seen this community before (but will be joining it & reading up) - I'm wondering if you a costume designer by profession or what... you have seven pages of comments already so no need to respond personally, I'll just stalk you in this community for a bit to try & find out. :)

Hi! I may not be able to respond to every comment, but I at least try to answer questions! :) Actually, I'm a librarian - this is just my hobby. It's a fun one, though! Glad you're joining the community!

I saw you around once or twice (even sat near you for a Torchwood panel) but never got a good look or even a picture, and I was so upset! I'm so glad for this post though, I LOVE seeing what goes into a costume.
