I have recently become obsessed with Doctor Who and had been debating about what I should be for Halloween (a TARDIS? Clockwork Droid?) One of my favorite episodes is Blink but I thought I couldn't pull a Weeping Angel off in time. And then with a week to go till Halloween, my cousin convinced me otherwise  Grin While I didn't get around to making a mask, my wings turned out so fabulously, I can't really care.

**UPDATE 11/16/10**
I've added 2 photos of the dress itself. They've been in my closet, so don't mind the wrinkles  Grin The dress is actually a separate top and skirt, to make it easier to get into and out of, and the top sort of folded under on the bottom to give the billowy effect. It was the first time I've worked entirely without a pattern, so I kept it simple. Elastic was my best friend! After sewing the skirt, I separated the hula hoop (so it was no longer a continuous circle), threaded it through a thick hem on the bottom, and then reattached it. Then, I painted everything with acrylic paint, which helped to stiffen em all up a bit.

Any other questions, feel free to ask!!

Big thanks to penwiper337 at crafty_tardis for her Weeping Angel costume post. It really inspired me with mine.

That looks FABULOUS!! My friend joked that I should be a Weeping Angel for Halloween, but I responded that I couldn't possibly stop and stand still every time someone looked at me. Wink But there's no way I could make a costume that looks that good, so bravo! Grin Very nice!

Wow, that is amazing costume!!! I can tell it took a great deal of time, but was the cost factor worth it? Some of the things I make for cosplay for my anime daughters seem to cost me more than the few times they will even wear them. They have a rule which is always be different, never the same cosplay:P

I really am impressed with your wing set, so what changes did you make to be able to get into the dress without help?

Thanks in advance if you answer the queries.  Tongue
