Do you have Doctor Who in the US?
A Weeping Angel is an alien life form that looks like a statue when you look at it, but if you look away or blink, it will get you!
The mask for the Homemade Weeping Angel from Doctor Who Costume is a download from the Doctor Who website in the UK, although I altered the colour to match the fabric and laminated it for durability. The wings are from a $2 shop, sprayed grey with a water soluble spray paint.
The body of the costume was made with some grey polyester fabric – about 2m. I sewed it into a large tube, leaving the top and bottom open, and spaces for sleeves. I then gathered the shoulders, and made a casing for a ribbon around the neck. So the neck is big enough to step into, then tightens with the ribbon. An elastic band around the waist pulls it in for the draping effect. Sleeves were made to cover the arms and sewn onto the costume.
Slots were cut in the back of the fabric to allow the wings to poke out. I also made a casing around the hem and inserted a wire coathanger for weight and shape.
We painted the wearer’s ears grey, and sprayed his hair grey too. Next time we’ll paint the hands as well!
