These sand sculptures were prepared as part of this year's Hollywood-themed Weston-Super-Mare Sand Sculpture festival on March 26, 2013 in Weston-Super-Mare, England. All week, 20 award-winning sand sculptors from across the globe are working to create sand sculptures that include odes to Harry Potter, Marilyn Monroe and characters from the Star Wars films as part of the town's very own movie themed festival on the beach.

Sure, it's too cold to go the beach. But that doesn't mean you can't admire it from afar.
