DON'T BLINK...DON'T EVEN BLINK...BLINK AND YOU'RE DEAD!

Well...like many, I'm in love with Doctor Who...been watching for years!!!  "Blink" is my favorite episode, so I decided that I needed to make a Weeping Angel poppet.  I thought, "Hey Lani, this should be a piece of cake!!!...I mean, it is just one color, right?!?!"  Oh, I was SO WRONG!!!!  I sat there, staring at the basic body pieces, and my mind started racing...how was I going to get those hands to stay on her face?  How was I going to pull of the wings?  And what about the hair?  I looked at her, and my thought was that when you look at a statue, their hair isn't made from a different material, so for me, it had to be fabric.  I made several little worms, and after attaching them, I needle-sculpted it to make it look like hair...and stone.  After a lot of zoning out, some SERIOUSLY sore hands, and countless hours into this, here she is!!!  Hope you like Grin













The funny thing here, is that even though I know it is just a show, and I know she is just a doll, I kept turning to looking at her when I would turn my back.   Shocked

Thanks for looking, everyone!!!

She is incredible! I love the draping of the dress and how the wings came out and the hair must have been a real pain in the ... .
