Lani, a true Doctor Who fan, has created this marvelous Weeping Angel poppet. I think poppet is a cross between plushy and puppet.
The process is shared on Crafter.org and wasn’t as easy as it first looked. Lani wrote;
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!!!
