Don't Blink!

I whipped up a quick project after my bike ride Saturday.  I made it for theonlyboyfriend for his desk, but I really want to make another one for me.

Here it is.  DON'T BLINK!!


I took that photo with the cat and told her not to blink and she promptly fell asleep.  NOOOOO!!!  Lol!

So, for those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about: the weeping angel is a character from Dr Who.  There's a full bio on them Here.  but basically they're evil beings that are in the form of an angel statue.  If they get to you, they shoot you back in time to a time period long before you were born and you're stuck there forever.  Letting you "live to death".  They are statues, but they can only move when they're not being looked at, so if you look away from them they come to live and come at you.  Even as quick as the blink of an eye.  Hence the warning not to blink.  And that's also why they hide their faces in their hands so they don't risk looking at each other.  Even if you're not a Dr Who fan, the first episode with them its REALLY cool.

Just for fun, here's what they look like in the show:

And what they look like when you look away.

Yeah, they're terrifying.  

I'm thinking one of these would be a REALLY cool tree topper for our Geek Christmas tree.  Scary but awesome.
