May 1 Blink: The Weeping Angels Episode

My Lovely Weeping Angel

“Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink. Good luck.” Dr. Who

Weeping Angels are Monsters. They steal your life force by sending you into the past, with a single touch, to a point before your own birth, then feed off the “potential energy” of the years which you would have lived in the present. They cover their eyes and appear to weep so as not to get locked in another Weeping Angel’s gaze. If this happens, they will become trapped in the stone. Weird.

I have always been fascinated with stone angels, headstones and graveyards in general. Yep, I love cemeteries. I think the really old headstones are so beautiful. I used to go to cemeteries quite regularly years ago, until women started getting attacked in them. I guess there aren’t a lot of people around to deter a crime like that.

Four Barbie dolls showed up in my yard this morning and I decided to create a Weeping Angel Statue. She is beautiful. I may try to make another in a  seated position or with outstretched hands getting ready for the deadly embrace. We’ll see how it goes….

This was my bizarre greeting this morning.
Gathering materials to make a weeping angel
Gluing her to the pedestal
Clothing her and getting her hands in position – can’t get those hands to glue to her eyes
Creating mini textured wings
Putting her all together – before the primer and paint
