By Royal Decree, New Hats and Dress or Off with my Head!!!
Ok so the Queen has been making demands that her hats and dress must be shown off to you all so here they are.
The red mouldings are in, albeit abit wonky but to be fair these wernt cut by me, it was a second hand roombox so I just took them off and painted them, they dont but up perfectly, but hey, just dont click on the close ups, you wont notice!
Here are some more close ups of Kats hats in the lit arches. Im putting some little perfume bottles and other accessories in here too.
Now advice please? Do you think the black display panel needs more detailing, maybe more gold on it, in the form of more peel off stripes or fancy bits like Ive put on the corners? What do you think? Or maybe 2 more smaller pictures hanging on the wall?
Last year Janice put some beautiful dresses on her blog by a very talented lady called Cher. ( Click on her name to go to her ebay shop) I contacted her directly to ask if she fancied making me a Red Queen dress on a mannequin.
Cher was excited to help out and I was totally delighted with this stunning dress, as Id only sent an idea from pictures of what Id like it to be like, the rest was all Cher's imagination and design!
I love it, it fits in a treat in the roombox and Cher has kindly agreed to making me other things for the roombox in the future , maybe a red wig, or another corset ? There are so many things I want to fit in, I keep teasing Emily and saying Im going to steal her castle kit shes bought and use it for a whole red Queen castle so I can fit in all my ideas!!! Somehow I dont think she will let me !
And lastly here is another Of Tara's fantastic creations, an 'Eat Me' cake complete with its glass display box. Adorable and so detailed and beautifully made! This is going at the foot of the sofa, but Tara's pics are better than mine so here it is!
I have moved the roombox to its new home, though even John says it may have to come into the lounge to be shown off if i get dolls!!!
Its had all the furniture I have so far put in, but I still have pictures and other fancy bits to put up, and maybe some more hats need to be made!
Tomorrow Im off to Hobbycraft to look for some hearts and gems and see what peel offs they have that may go over the archways?
On my return Ill be busy decorating the interior of the shop front, maybe putting some things on the interior ledges .
Once its nearly there Ill do a big reveal, still not quite there yet!! But hey this is a major accomplishment for me, as I am known as 'Mrs I dont ever finish anything'!!
