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?!


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.

WOW. I do not have the proper words. That's an incredible amount of work and skill, and it sounds like you had lots of fun with it too! Amazing.

This is absolutely stunning, and the level of detail is overwhelming! I'm particularly taken with the gloves.

Query: when did you start this, before DC? Do you know roughly how long it took to pull it together?

Thank you!

Overall, it took about a month of steady work, plus two weeks of up-till-1-am sheer bloody panic. The last two days before the con were miserable all-day up-till-5-am, but in the end it was worth it - especially for all the lovely reactions I've been getting!

Knitted Wig?
You know, you may want to try actually knitting the wig...

I imagine one could whip up a ribbed stocking cap and then pick up stitches here and there for I-cord "locks" of hair which you could then style and tack in place...
