Some time during the month, but I forgot exactly when, I did a partial overpaint of my Silence doll to make her better match Little Silence, who has thick, intense brows, and flecks of gold in her eyes. Continue reading Silence shows Saxonian spark!
The doll that I began about a year ago as the Spymaster has now come into his own as a denizen of Hardship first named the Disaster, then Amish, and now Ethan. After a month of painting and adjusting and ordering/waiting for hair and ordering/waiting for hands and all that sort of thing, he’s finally finished. Progress pics below. Continue reading His name is now Ethan, and he’s finally done!
Recently I got some Rements that are larger than the usual scale [which is around 1:7 to 1:8]. Some are also sculpted as if they are in the midst of being served. Thus my dolls can eat them more realistically. Continue reading ACTION PASTA!!!!!!! …and other exciting mini fudz
A while back, I acquired a cast iron child’s toy stove that would have worked well for 1:6 scale, except it was too short. I recently purchased a beautiful Little Maid pressed tin, lithographed toy stove from the 1930s with the same problem — too short. I justified this purchase by saying that I have three currently active characters who like to cook [Amish, Night, and the Magister], and the Magister is exactly the sort of person to have different cooking places for different foods.
Incidentally, I did some research, and apparently stoves really looked like that in the 1920s and 1930s. Little legs were common, as were multiple ovens, often set side by side with the burners.
I’m surprised that toy stoves running on electric current were so popular for decades. As far as I’m concerned, that sounds like second-degree burns or a house fire just waiting to happen.
Anyway, shortly after I acquired the Little Maid stove, I found Sixth Scale Studio on Etsy. Besides furniture, this shop also makes risers for kitchen furniture so that it’s a more realistic height for 1:6ers. Huzzah!Continue reading Toy stoves as pieces for dolls
Well, all of my kidsies are equally cute, but Little Theo is the most recently finished, so she’s currently the most adorbz. Progress pics below. Continue reading Little Theo — the cutest kidsy!
I was telling her about an idea for a portrait that showed an aspect of the subject that most people often overlooked. Response:
Her: ohhhhh like the wossname gay in the attic
Me: The Picture of Dorian G[r]ay.
The kid-sized bunkbed is finally complete! Continue reading Bunkbed for the Little Dorks!
