The Weeping Angels are by far the scariest Doctor Who monster. Worse than the Daleks, worse than the Cybermen. And bunnystuffs managed to capture the creepyness. She posted this over at Crafty_Tardis, and sent it to a show in the UK. Her Weeping Angel is amazingly detailed, and the words glow in the dark. I’ve done cross stitch before, and I just don’t have the patience for something like this. The red highlights are perfect (because the angels just aren’t scary enough).I’m not sure I’d want this in the house though…one night you look up and the angel isn’t covering her face anymore…

Just in time for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, the Weeping Angels have been crocheted, have been turned into Christmas tree toppers and even turned into costumes. But now, Lanikins has taken the Weeping Angel from creator Steven Moffat to the next level….and it’s strangely cuddly.
Lanikins is a dollmaker by trade and owns the Etsy shop of the same name, as well as being a regular poster to Craftster. Typically, her posts on Craftster show off the pop culture poppets she’s made. Of her Weeping Angel, Lanikins said,
“”Blink’ is my favorite episode [of Doctor Who], 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!!!”
For anyone interested in making their own Doctor Who character poppet, Good Cookie Creations has a free pattern available to use as your poppet base.
