I made this a few months back for a Doctor Who swap. After making some zombie barbie dolls last year I had been wanting to try a new project with them and I absolutely LOVE the Weeping Angels (and fortunately so did my swap partner) so I came up with this:




I used a dollar store Barbie doll knock off and paper mache (which was completely new for me) to sculpt the wings and the dress. The first thing I learned was that paper mache takes FOREVER to dry I made the wings separately and dried them in the oven in a few hours but couldn't put the doll in the oven so the dress took over a week to dry before I could even start painting.  Tongue
I am pretty proud of how she turned out though!

Thank You!
I had originally planned to make one for the swap and then one for me- but now that I know how much work it was I decided that I didn't need one after all!   This one was trial and error so even though I figured out the most efficient way to make the next one because I know what NOT to do, it is still a big project ( at least for me).

Wow this is awesome! The Weeping Angels are the scariest (but also my favorite) foes in the Doctor Who series! This is great work!

this is fantastic! I'm wondering if you could use cheesecloth and fabric stiffener? If that would hold up .. hmmmm something to ponder on *Must Make Angel*

You know that does sound like it might work but I bet it would be kind of fragile. Painting it might be tricky but if you started with gray cloth you would only have to paint the doll ....  Now I am hoping you give it a try because I want to see how that would turn out....  Wink
