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