There's a stop-motion animation movie coming out tomorrow called Coraline. I went to the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco today to look at the original works of art from the film. I was awed by the detail of the puppets and tiny costumes. The art inspires me. And, of course, I walked away chattering about how the two worlds in the film would make cool dollhouses and figures.
Okay, random interesting things that I have seen in the mini world--First up, a new 1:6 Bodo Hennig kitchen that is begging to be bedazzled.Please note that when I say "bedazzled" that I don't mean the whole sparkly unicorn or pegasus business. I really think this kitchen piece could be supreme with some crafty hands.
A stacked washer and dryer for that small space, modern apartment or dorm room.
An outdoor fireplace made of MDF that could be an interesting addition to a kitchen or outdoor scene. I wish I could see the back of it to tell if it could be made double-sided.
And a 1/2 scale corner roombox that reminds me of the small modern prefab kits used for extra living space.
