After a super busy Easter weekend I finally have a chance to sit down for a little bit on the computer to post some pics! I didn't really get a chance to do much with the girls this weekend since we spent most of our time cleaning the yard and spending time with family. But, I did get a chance to put together my very first model! For whatever reason, we decided that it would be a good idea to get our most irresponsible Shinki a pet. >_>
I had a really good time putting him together. He still needs some detail painting work done, but I'll still happily show off my first model, lol. I can't wait until I get some more! I've found a new passion for Zoids, and am desperately seeking out Firefox right now for Renge. We also want to get the D-Style Gustav for her as well. :>
Also, I finally got to take some detailed pictures of Gabrine's room.
First off I would like to list off some of the sources for her room. The Amazon Boxes
are just this Danbo Papercraft that I took and modified a bit. I added a bottom flap to it and I also just took off the Danbo face. You really wouldn't even have to do any of those modifications if you didn't want to, because you could just turn the face around, no problem.
Second is the figure boxes! Kixkillradio
is a HUGE inspiration for me with pictures and dioramas! Her work is absolutely amazing, and not only is it amazing she's soooo willing to help other creators by offering tutorials and links to download some of her creations! Here
is the photoshoot she did which required the figure boxes. And with that she offered a download of all the boxes that she made HERE
. The template is easy to use. I don't even know anything about papercrafting and I was able to put them together.
Ava AKA Aerohail (I'm not sure what you like to go by on this forum x_x) was a huuuuge help by offering advice on how to set up the walls! They're just foam board that I nailed onto a big piece of wood. I'm honestly not even sure of the dimensions, lol. It was just a piece of wood I found out in the garage that looked like it would work.
All the furniture I got HERE
. There are also a lot of other dollhouse websites that have decent prices, you just have to shop around a bit. There's at least 5 major miniature websites, so just make sure you do some looking.
And all the figures in her collection are just things that we found. Micromachines has some awesome lines like Power Rangers and such. All this sort of stuff you can just find on Ebay. We were fortunate that my brother in law had a big collection that we were able to buy off of him.
