made these presents
This isn’t the first time I’ve made a diorama (in high school I made them for extra-credit), but it’s the first time I’ve ever gifted one. I crafted this Skate-O-Rama miniature for my bro, with a push-light included and secured to the lid for optimum viewing pleasure. You can’t really see the full extent of paper-skating pleasures I glued together, but the park includes a half-pipe, quarter-pipe, ramp, bowl and steps to kick-flip over and grind on.
I only wish it had traveled better and not gotten (minorly) crushed in my suitcase.
Seeing the cuzins is the best part of Christmas, even though a mere 3 hours of visiting within a 6-month period pretty much bums me out. None-the-less, excitement and happy ensues when we are together and I hope I helped us along a little bit more this year by designing this original ornament just for them.
Bonfires and marshmallow memories… those were the days!!!!
Before and after the year is over I hope everyone can enjoy their days with loved ones and some sunshine.
Like Bigfoot and the Gnome…
made a prop
I’m really a miniature crafter – most things I end up creating are on a very small scale, though through photographic magics, appear a heck of a lot bigger on the interwebs.
This jacket is no exception.
I’ve been heavily focused on making props for my next animated short (Remembering Hogwarts: A Scene from The Prisoner of Azkaban) and debated on whether or not this specific detail was necessary for production.
As it turns out:
Mostly because I REVEL in details – the smaller the better.
And this jacket is tiny: It’s vertical length measures a mere 2 1/2 inches, with an armspan of 3 1/2 inches.
The frayed edges are not a product of the thing being so-darn-small, but are there on purpose. This is a werewolf’s blazer after all, and I don’t think “pristine” is a describer for such a creature’s belongings.
