Hubby’s Doctor Who Party Planning- Monster High doll turned Weeping Angel Tutorial

For hubby’s birthday this year, I decided to go with a Dr Who theme and what Dr Who party could be complete without a Weeping Angel. So today I am going to show you how I took a Monster High Doll and turned her into one of the ancient races from Dr Who.

If you aren’t a Doctor Who fan, you may not know what a Weeping Angel is and may be wondering why I should have her as decor for the party, so here is a brief run down on the Angel.

The Weeping Angels are an ancient race of aliens ,their usual mode of feeding is to send their victims back in time, which creates energy to consume. When they are not being observed by someone, they can move very quickly and silently, but when they are being observed, they become “quantum-locked”and become stone.

In this position, they are frozen and difficult to destroy. They cannot stop this reaction. If two Weeping Angels were to look at each other at the same time, they would be trapped in stone form until an outside force moves them apart. To prevent this, they often cover their eyes while moving – this makes them look as though they are weeping.

The Weeping Angels play a huge part in the Dr Who Series, they are in several episodes along with the very memorable, “Angels in Manhattan”, which ended last season.

So now with a little background, you see, there should be a Angel at the event

On to the Tutorial

Supplies:

Air Dry Clay

Doll- Used Monster High doll but any doll preferably one with jointed elbows will work (I just like the Monster High dolls.)

Wings- You can make them or buy them, I found some cheap at Hobby Lobby, so I purchased them

Cheesecloth for dress

something to secure  hair and dress like wire or rubberbands

Stone textured spray paint

glue sticks and glue gun

something to work on, I used a paper plate

Steps:

Step 1: Take old clothes off doll, then create a base so she stands on her own with the clay

Step 2: put up dolls hair in a kind of bun (you are going for the old victorian statue look), don’t worry if some of the hair sticks out, this will be fixed laterDSC02062

Step 3: wrap dolls torso in cheesecloth to make draped toga like top and secure at waistDSC02063

Step 4: wrap cheesecloth around waist and drape to form nice wrapped skirt and secure, I used clay to secure to top of dress and ensure edges and bottom were not ridged from cuttingDSC02064

Step 5: attach wings- I used the wire that came with them and wrapped it around the waist and secured with some glue at shouldersDSC02065

Step 6: cover your Angel’s hair with glue from glue gun, create texture and waves and here is where you can secure the fly-aways.

Note: I tried to do this step with clay at first but it weighed her head down to much, so glue it a better way to go for a lighter AngelDSC02066

Step 6: Take Angel somewhere open and well ventilated a spray with stone textured spray paint, follow directions and this step may require a few coats or touching up, let dry

Step 7: Don’t Blink and enjoy your Angel

I like how the Monster high dolls fingers are slightly ope, makes me feel like she is peeking, like hubby’s digital art

Happy Dr Who Wednesday!

Okay, today is not an official Doctor Who day but it is my Doctor Who Wednesday and I am sorry I haven’t done one in a while but I have been busy.

I mean there have been alot of things going on in the sci fi world that required my attention; Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness and the season finale of Doctor Who, so yep, I’ve been busy!

Speaking of the Doctor Who finale, here is an awesome digital piece that hubby created with the newest villain, the Whisper Men and one of our favorites, the Silence.

Silent Whispers

It is entitled Silent Whispers and I think it is pretty awesome, the Whisper men are pretty creepy but who do you think would win this showdown?

I mean the Silence do have the advantage, as soon as the Whisper men turn their back, the would forget that they were in a fight and then the Silence has the upper hand, lol!

I hope you enjoyed hubby’s newest piece of art, to comment on his art or buy a print, please visit redbubble.com or deviantart.com

Who Wednesday – Featuring Kristofer Floyd

Fellow Whovians, Who Wednesday is once again upon us and I am pleased to announce another new creation of the Who kind.

Here it is :

Adisposing

Adiposing

Baby Adipose strutting their stuff for the mother ship.

These little cuties are another creation of my hubby’s, they were done digitally! They are so adorable, which I know no one thinks a pile of fat can be, lol! I really love the little guy up front, reminds me of the first time we encounter the Adipose. Also, the coloration and the glimpse of the other babies being beamed to the mother ship, really makes this picture for me.

I hope you enjoyed this picture as much as I enjoyed showing it off.

Who Wednesday, Doctor Who Fan Art

Hi guys, it is Wednesday and to follow the theme of the week so far, I am showcasing Hubby’s work. But this work is new and Whovian inspired!! Yay!

I was going to do them piece by piece to leave you with antici………pation! But I thought against it. These pieces are just too cool, not to be shown as a set.

All these pieces are digital from start to finish, created on painter 12 and believe it or not created in less than three weeks, WOW!! I know right?! When you get inspired you get inspired!

So while I have been trying to finish all my projects for Disneyworld, hubby has been slaving away on these masterpieces.

 Oodles of Contemplation

Humood Fin

I love this Ood, I believe Kris said it was Sigma. He has just these amazing thoughtful eyes.

Mercy

Dalek MERCY

A Dalek encountering the Tardis. The image is totally up for interpretation, I have been asked if he is crying or drooling. Either way is pretty perfect and we have enjoyed both ideas.

Mummy?!

Are You My MummyThe Empty child. I simply adore green and this is one of the coolest episodes in that season, in my opinion. I think the picture turned out amazing!

Enjoy The Silence

Enjoy the Silence

I hope you have your eye drives on because, this guy is too cool to forget! The Silence, by far one of the coolest Aliens encountered in the Who world. I truly love how this one turned out.
