First of all, I just want to show you a picture of my little Heidi Ott doll in her new costume. The pram is one I made many years ago at a workshop.
As promised here are some photos of a few of the exhibits from the Wanganui Miniature Club Show. It was hard trying to to only select a few photos. My lovely husband went around and took the photos for me so I could chat with fellow miniaturists and have a good look around. Don't forget you can click on the photos to make them bigger.
A general view of the exhibits.
A lovely little cabinet house. Hathaway Cottage had one of the cabinets on their stall and I was so so tempted.
Little 1/144th matchbox scenes. I believe these are created from kits by Jewel Lewis, a New Zealand miniaturist.
Ettamogah Pub by Bronwyn Hutchins based on Ken Maynard cartoons.
Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs.
A miniaturist's workroom with some fabulous little dolls houses.
Shallow box exhibits with very creative names.
I love this little cottage.
Babylon Villa - something a bit different. I like the way the people are just paper cut-outs.
Exhibited by Penny Hook, I think this is also made up from a Jewel Lewis kit. The detail is fabulous.
A very elegant exhibit with a miniature scene inset on the back wall.
A doll within a doll.
Another very elegant scene. I love the picture over the fire place.
Last of the Summer Wine. Aren't the dolls fabulous.
I love this little build with the lace 'ironwork'.
The Onceler's house based on Dr Seuss' The Lorax.
Mackintosh room box. Love the mirror.
Ship in a globe.
A touch of steampunk.
Bear head flowers.
Mr & Mrs.
I have to apologise to the exhibitors in that I do not know who created the above exhibits, other than those noted, as I was not following my husband with a pen and notebook. However, if you let me know which are your exhibits I will be happy to add your names to the above photo descriptions.
Well everyone I hope you have enjoyed seeing just a few of the items from the show. I certainly came away with a dose of inspiration. I might do another post during the week with a few more photos.
