Draculaura's Darkroom / Re: Let's See Pics - Houses & Furniture! Rooms!
« Last post by Ravie on Today at 12:53:42 PM »
It's been awhile since I made anything, so these pics are old, and unfortunately, both the dojo and the Youth Center got a little banged up when I moved and I don't have anywhere right now to assess the damage, especially the YC because of it's size when it's unfolded.

respositob - that's so cute your cousin helps you with photos! Robbie looks quite comfortable, considering she's lying on hard wood  :)

Day 268



My last Bratz, Tyla. I can't get enough of her face!

Tyla is a true beauty! And yes, I took the picture of Robecca during a get-together at my Grandpa's, and my cousin always likes to help me with doll projects. He's one of the few children in my family who's interested in my doll stuff. :)

Clawdeen, Howleen, and Clawdia's room/Clawdia's bed
To this day, Clawdia's bed is one of the favorite MH beds I've made. The wolf paw on her foot-board I cut from wood with the help of my grandpa and her blanket kind of mimics her red jacket overlaying her gold dress.

Clawdia shares a room with her sisters, Howleen and Clawdeen. I basically split the room in half; one side matches Clawdia, the other Clawdeen. (Howleen didn't get a say in decorating... XD) I made the pink zebra print carpet on Clawdeen's by printing out a clipart picture of a wolf's paw and tracing it onto the felt. And I don't know if it's noticeable, but the chair Clawdeen's sitting on is actual the shape of a high heel! I'm pretty sure it came with my Hannah Montana house I got when I was about eight.

Nefera de Nile's WIP bed
Basically, I'm in the process of making Nefera a canopy bed. I'm using flatter, wider foam blocks for her mattress as well as canopy. Her headboard is going to be a circular woodshape with a scarab engraved into it that I got from the WoodshapeStore.com. I have yet to sew her blanket and pillow(s) but I below there's a pic of the fabric and trims I plan to use.

Sooo, this post was SUPER DUPER long, and there's still more to show you guys! ^^;

Thanks repositob for sharing your pics!! Love the rooms! And what a great idea, to use velcro to swap out the foam-core-mounted decor - that's a great idea and I like that one a LOT. I'd been grappling with how to do room box set-ups, and waffling between foam core structures or more permanent shelf structures, but your idea is the best of both.

With your cauldron - is that silver thing in Raven's room the thing you're talking about? If yes, can you share how you made it? And is it 'filled' with something?

I love how the werewolf sisters have to share a room and how both halves really capture Clawdia's and Clawdeen's personalities! (and how it's always the youngest that gets no say in the matter, lol) Who gets the top bunk, Clawdeen or Howleen?

And Nefera's looks to be shaping up nicely…I especially love the sequin trim for the canopy.

Please share more! Love to see your creative approaches and uses of materials, very inspirational. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you so much! It always makes me smile when someone compliments me on my beds and rooms! :biggrin:

For Clawdeen's room, Howleen gets the top bunk, that way I can use the shelves on the bottom portion to store Clawdeen's makeup! And yes, the silver thing under Raven's window is sort of a raised cauldron. I made it by hot gluing a Dunkin Donuts cup top to an empty toilet paper roll that I topped off with cardboard squares. I painted the whole thing silver, and then decorated with gems and ribbons that I thought suited Raven. It isn't filled with anything, rather I cut a piece of clear doll packaging (the plastic that acts sort of as a "window" so you can see the doll) and painted it in a swirl pattern with a mixture of acrylic paint and glue. I should mention though that I was inspired by a tutorial from a YouTuber named HeXtian to make the cauldron, so it wasn't my original idea. Here's a link to his video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dvTswEKW-k

HeXtian also makes doll beds, so I recommend you check out those videos, too. He's really inspiring.


These rooms are absolutely fang-tastic!!!  :clap:

Thank you so much!

Here's one of my favorite doll props - a museum replica of the King Tut throne chair. (Cleo asked Rochelle to jump into the pic for scale, please excuse her messy hair)

I believe it's a resin chair that's painted, not sure as I got it on ebay without packaging. But if you want one, I think they are still occasionally to be found, as are other 1/6 scale 'famous chairs'.

Oh my gosh, that's too awesome! Perfect for Cleo, or maybe even Nefera!

Off Topic / Welcome to Marwen movie - will you go see it?
« Last post by DogMom on Today at 08:09:13 AM »
There's an upcoming movie titled Welcome to Marwen that's coming out just before Christmas in the U.S. - it's based on the true story of Mark Hogancamp and his Marwencol, a 1:6 scale town populated by dolls. Hogancamp creates scenarios and photographs them. They are amazing.

There's been both a book and a documentary, and now this feature film. Google Marwencol and you'll find more info.

Will you go see the movie when it comes to your town?

Mods, I wasn't sure where this thread should reside - I put it in Catrine's Art Studio because it involves many artistic media. Feel free to move if needed. Thanks!

My sister normally beats me to Fire Emblem lots, but I got a keychain lot this time and it included quite a few of my favorites!
