Title: The Making of : Summer Garden Party on Regent St
Post by: playmovictorian on June 16, 2010, 02:15:20
A very good morning to you dear Friends  :wave:

I am delighted to announce my new project "Summer Garden Party on Regent St" !

Ever since I created my Autumn and Winter tales last year ( Autumn Harvest on Regent St, There is Magic in the Air and Christmas Miracle on Regent St ) I cherished the dream of creating a Spring / Summer themed diorama representing the mansion of my happy little Victorian in full bloom with mainly outdoor scenes.

This 6 months old dream will present the garden of the Mansion, mainly viewed from the conservatory area and will focus on a formal garden with fountain, a picturesque vegetable garden, a seating area for high tea and a pavilion where the summer evening party will take place.

These are of course early stages, and I do not want to rush into this project, first because of a demanding work, secondly because I absolutely wish to make the most of what Summer is about with outdoor activities and continuing my escapades around the UK which have helped me tremendously in regaining a certain balance in my life.

I will therefore take my time with regards to the thinking, planning and setting up of this new project which I will document as I will get along...

Those of you who already know my work are aware that I am using a background for my scenes in order to give a sense of perspective and depth to my dioramas.

Here are two examples of my previous work on the seasonal theme :

Christmas Miracle on Regent St

(http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/2032/83563668.jpg) (http://img266.imageshack.us/i/83563668.jpg/)

For my new Summer themed diorama, I am looking for a fresh, green and peaceful background and here are some of the paintings I have selected which are all lifelike copies through the method of "giclee on canvas" which I explained in a previous making of :

a comeback in such a wonderful style karim.  :love:
thank you for such beautiful images.  :wow:
it's great to see you back.  :yup:

one day i was hoping that you could create a "maritime" scene just as beautiful as your "city" ones.  ;)
i don't know if you like this caspar david friedrich painting but i thought it would illustrate what i mean better than words.
your baudelaire quote "la, tout n'est qu'ordre et beaute, luxe, calme et volupte. l'Invitation au voyage" always makes me remember this painter.  :)

Hill and Dale looks like the best background Karim.
I can't wait to see your Summer Garden Party!
I loved your Winter and Autumn Dioramas, :love:
So I am very excited to see your Spring/Summer diorama! ;D

Glad to see you are going to be relaxing this summer (for the most part).
I am not allowed the luxary, as I will be travelling across the US, 8}
From the East coast, to the West. It will be big, long, and tiresome.
But hopefully just as fun! :lol:

I think I like the River Valley landscape because it looks so light and summery.
Looking forward to your Summer Garden Party Karim. 
It will be a good excuse for all your Victorian ladies to wear their best summer hats.   :lol:

Thank you dear Friends  :wave:

My trip to the enchanting gardens of Warwick Castle gave me the opportunity to gather ideas for my diorama  ;)

As I mentioned before, the first pictures will be a shot of Regent Street showing the front of the Mansion with the side garden and its fountain and will be set in the early morning with the little milkboy delivery.

The street will be decorated according to the season which will be a late Spring early Summer and I need to dress the hedges, trees and pillars of the front porch accordingly.

Setting up an atmospheric decor is easier said than done and those of you who have followed my work since last year may remember that I embraced the thought of an Autumn themed diorama with my previous experience of customizing trees, hedges and lawns dating back to the mid seventies as a child when I was creating a model railway ! I remember pouring myself a glass of Merlot, putting a CD of Mary Poppins on and sitting at my preparation board covered with newspapers, with a tube of sprayed glue and two varieties of Early and Late Autumn blended Tufts and Clusters ( purchased in a Model Railway shop )

Needless to say that I first managed to glue my own fingers in a unspeakable way, but with the cheerful help of grape juice and Mary Poppins songs, I started getting a grip of what I was aiming for.

Here are a few pictures of the results of my attempt at creating a decor on the Autumn theme last year ( with familiar Autumn activities such as grape and apple harvest, wine making, pumpkin pie, toffee apples an preserve making and finally an Autumn Fair on Regent St ) :

Autumn Harvest - a Victorian Tale

(http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/628/74292022.jpg) (http://img10.imageshack.us/i/74292022.jpg/)

(http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/5390/12536833.jpg) (http://img248.imageshack.us/i/12536833.jpg/)

(http://img810.imageshack.us/img810/1233/91999583.jpg) (http://img810.imageshack.us/i/91999583.jpg/)

(http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/3491/13141737.jpg) (http://img23.imageshack.us/i/13141737.jpg/)

(http://img816.imageshack.us/img816/8665/70376229.jpg) (http://img816.imageshack.us/i/70376229.jpg/)

(http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/7241/51351399.jpg) (http://img638.imageshack.us/i/51351399.jpg/)

(http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/5496/47891840.jpg) (http://img267.imageshack.us/i/47891840.jpg/)

(http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/342/90403948.jpg) (http://img411.imageshack.us/i/90403948.jpg/)

In the above pictures, I attempted to recreate the softness of a Autumn day which has a colour and a light of its own, but Spring is about brightness both in light and colours so I will have to aim accordingly in the shades of green and flowers which will cover the trees, lawns and hedges.

My initial thought is about an early morning milkboy delivery who this time who will not be greeted by the Cook by the kitchen door and will find instead a "in the garden" sign...so he will make his way towards the garden accordingly to find the familiar household Staff working in the vegetable garden picking up vegetables like salads, carrots and tomatoes and gathering strawberries.

I would like to take the viewer on a journey from the picking of the vegetables and fruits in the garden back to the kitchen with preparation of the food and finally the serving of the feast in the evening.

Then the remaining part of the diorama will be set with a view towards the conservatory of the Mansion from the gardens and needless to say that I was inspired by Warwick Castle's formal gardens, roses and topiary not to forget the peacocks who will also grace the gardens of my happy little Victorians.

The gardens will include a vegetable plot with turf and soil, a formal garden with low hedges, an elevated lawn area surrounded by brick with a few steps including a removable central fountain and where the afternoon high tea will be served with every yummy delights you may imagine, and a summer pavillion in which the evening garden party will take place with the serving of the feast in the hopefully magical atmosphere created by fairy lights.

You may ask me why a removable fountain in my elevated brick garden ? The reason being that I was inspired by outdoor Shakespeare Plays performed at the Botanical Gardens and I thought it would be just the right thing to spice up things a bit in my diorama ! I first thought of something like a "Midsummer Night's Dream" with fairies and elves but on second thought, a period costumed play such as "The Three Musketeers" and the dramatic entrance of the comedians fighting from the balcony of the Mansion down to the gardens and then on the stage would be nice. The Leading Lady will be a famous Victorian Actress arriving in style at the Mansion and creating a stir by demanding her own dressing room...

So here I am, dear Friends, with plenty of exciting ideas and just one tiny challenge, how to give them life on a 1.5 meter x 2 meters long board ?

My recent trips are really giving me a lot of inspiration not to forget the dioramas, creations and decorating tips you inspired me since I joined your World !

I will update you with my progess as I will get along...

Karim :)

Thank you dear Friends  :wave:

I am very excited at the idea of taking you through a journey in the world of miniatures on a 1/12th scale from the picking of the fruit and vegetable in the garden in the morning to the transformation in the kitchen through highly detailed preparation boards in the day to the serving of the feast in the pavilion in the evening  :)

This will require a very careful planning and will certainly challenge my skills at creating miniature food like never before, but if it goes according to plan, this should give a sense of continuity to the viewer who will follow the tribulations of my happy little Victorians in one of their most exciting and busy day so far !

New Victorian Ladies will be invited to the Party too  :love:

I will introduce them to you as they will join Regent St and I am currently looking for my two leading Ladies of the evening Sarah Bernhardt who will be the star of the play "The Three Muskeeters" and Maria Malbran who will sing in the evening in the Pavilion ! Needless to say that the two are getting on like cat and dog and their presence together on the same evening at the mansion should create quite a stir  :lol:

I am thinking of sending an invitation to 221b Baker St famous resident and his faithful Dr Watson as well as a certain Arsene Lupin, nicknamed in France, the Gentleman Thief  ;)

I am currently reviewing the type of grass sheet available for the lawns as well as embossed brick sheets for the walls of the elevated garden as well as the garden paths, not to forget which material to use for the street surface and the sidewalk pavement...

Miss Periwinkle and I will take you through the process of customizing trees and hedges with a touch of spring.

Oh, did I forget to mention that Miss Periwinkle will supervise the transformation of the Mansion's gardens into a heavenly scene for the afternoon high tea, evening outdoor play and party in the pavilion ?

Not to forget the decoration of the kitchen which I want to be as faithful as possible to a Victorian kitchen  8}

Needless to say that I will be everything but bored in the months to come - especially since August should see me exploring new exciting places all over the UK  8-)- and I will update you with comments and pictures accordingly...

Karim :)

A very good morning to you dear Friends  :wave:

I am delighted to share with you the first pictures of my garden pavilion  :love:

I must say that I was impressed with the size of the building as I was expecting something slightly smaller and I think that it will fit my plans for the Summer Garden Party to perfection with its large terrace and equally large indoor space.

The following pictures will illustrate the box as well as the contents and finally the building which I have left bare as I will customize it so you will not see the features of the Wedding Pavillion 4297.

Now that the Garden Pavilion is built, I would like to introduce you to Miss Periwinkle   who will create the landscaped gardens of No1 Regent St. Disciple of Gertrude Jekill, the most famous Garden Designer of the Victorian Era, she has already created her signature gardens on both sides of the Atlantic for the likes of Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Astor in the fashionable areas of London and New York. And here she is today, working on her latest creation, the Gardens of the Mansion together with the French Head Gardener Firmin.

I have taken a few pictures of the pavilion with some of the characters of the Summer Garden Party on Regent St including the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt which can been seen in a pink dress with a hat sporting a white and green feather  :)

These pictures will hopefully give some perspective with regards to the background pictures and the nearby mansion.

As I said before, work in progress  ;)

To say that Ms Periwinkle and Mr Firmin have their hands full with this project is a sweet understatement  :lol:

If everything goes to plan or to "plant", shall I say, Mr Firmin should create a vegetable garden for the early morning scene and he is going to be busy boy  ;)

A press conference announcing the Summer Garden Party was hold today in the garden pavilion of No1 Regent St in which the famous Impresario, Sergei Diaghilev unveiled the details of the most anticipated Event of the Social Calendar surrounded by two of the brightest Stars of the Era, Actress Sarah Bernhardt and Opera Singer Maria Malibran !

In what will be front page material to society magazines such as the Delineator ( London ), La Gazette du Bon Ton ( Paris ) and Cosmopolitan ( New York ), the article will read :

"Sergei Diaghilev can be seen on the steps of the Garden Pavilion announcing The Event of the Season with two of the most celebrated Women of their time, Sarah Bernhardt who has just returned on the latest Cunard Steamer from her triumphant tour of the major American cities theatres and Maria Malibran who has recently delighted the Imperial Courts of Europe with her unique voice, which they say can be heard simultaneously on both sides of the Atlantic !

The two Celebrities are seen together for the first time in years as they are well known for not sharing the limelight with anyone and their venue to No 1 Regent St will certainly bring its lot of gossip, tantrums and demands.

We heard that the gardens which are currently being redesigned by the famous Gardener, Miss Periwinkle, will host amongst other events, an evening play by Monsieur Alexandre Dumas called "The Three Musketeers" in which Sarah Bernhardt will be Constance and Maria Malibran will delight the distinguished Guests which list willl be read like a Who's Who of Victorian Society, with the opera arias she is so famous for !

Maria Malibran can be seen wearing her signature black, red and gold dress with a black hat sporting a red feather and Sarah Bernhardt a pink dress with a pink hat sporting a white and green feather.

The press conference also attracted Ladies of the London Society which can be seen here dressed to the latest fashion for our great delight !"

Sarah Bernhardt  

(http://img693.imageshack.us/img693/9623/mucha2020sarah20bernhar.jpg) (http://img693.imageshack.us/i/mucha2020sarah20bernhar.jpg/)

(October 22, 1844 - March 26, 1923) was a French stage actress.

She was born in Paris as Henriette Rosine Bernard, the eldest surviving illegitimate daughter of Judith van Hard, a Dutch Jewish courtesan known as "Youle." Her father was reportedly Edouard Bernard, a French lawyer, and she was educated in French Catholic convents. To support herself, she combined the career of an actress with that of a courtesan - at the time, the two were considered scandalous to a roughly equal degree. She was sponsored into the Conservatoire de Musique et Déclamation by the Duc de Morny in 1859 for theatrical training.

(http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/2879/sarahbernhardtnadar.jpg) (http://img716.imageshack.us/i/sarahbernhardtnadar.jpg/)

Her stage career started in 1862, largely in comic theatre and burlesque. She made her fame on the stages of Europe in the 1870s, and was soon in demand all over Europe and in the United States. She soon developed a reputation as a serious dramatic actress, earning the title, "The Divine Sarah"; arguably, she may have been the most famous actress of the 19th century.

(http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/7025/sarahbernhardtascleopat.jpg) (http://img6.imageshack.us/i/sarahbernhardtascleopat.jpg/)

Although primarily a stage actress, Bernhardt made several cylinders and discs of famous dialogue from various productions. One of the earliest was a reading from Phèdre by Jean Racine, at Thomas Edison's home on a visit to New York City in the 1880s. Multi-talented, she was involved with the visual arts as well as acting, painting and sculpting herself, as well as modelling for Antonio de La Gandara. She was also to publish a series of books and plays throughout her life.

(http://img682.imageshack.us/img682/1880/nadarfc3a9lixsarahbernh.jpg) (http://img682.imageshack.us/i/nadarfc3a9lixsarahbernh.jpg/)

Her social life was as continuously active. She had an affair with a Belgian nobleman, Charles-Joseph-Eugene-Henri, Prince de Ligne, with whom she had her only child, the writer Maurice Bernhardt, in 1864 (he married a Polish princess, Maria Jablonowska, 1863-1914). Later lovers included several artists (Gustave Doré and Georges Clarin) and actors (Mounet-Sully and Lou Tellegen). She married Greek-born actor Aristides Damala (aka Jacques Damala) in London in 1882, but the marriage, which legally endured until Damala's death in 1889 at age 34, was quickly collapsed, largely due to the young actor's dependence on morphine.

(http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/3435/sarahbernhardtphoto3.jpg) (http://img4.imageshack.us/i/sarahbernhardtphoto3.jpg/)

Bernhardt was also one of the pioneer silent movie actresses, debuting as Hamlet in Le Duel d'Hamlet in 1900. (Technically, this was not a silent film, as it had accompanying cylinders with dubbed dialogue.) She went on to star in eight motion pictures and two biographical films in all. The latter included Sarah Bernhardt à Belle-Isle (1912), a film about her daily life at home.

Sarah Bernhardt was made a member of France's Legion of Honor in 1914.

In 1915, ten years after a serious injury, her right leg was amputated, confining her to a wheelchair for several months. Nonetheless, she continued her career, in spite of the need to use a wooden prosthetic limb. She died in the arms of her son Maurice. She is buried in Le Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris, France.

Sarah Bernhardt has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1751 Vine Street.

The actress La Berma, a fictional character in Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time was inspired by Bernhardt.

Sarah Bernhardt's quotes :

“Once the curtain is raised, the actor ceases to belong to himself. He belongs to his character, to his author, to his public. He must do the impossible to identify himself with the first, not to betray the second, and not to disappoint the third.”

Maria Malibran  

(http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/6348/1944lamalibran.jpg) (http://img801.imageshack.us/i/1944lamalibran.jpg/)

(24 March 1808 – 23 September 1836)  

The mezzo-soprano Maria Malibran, was one of the most famous opera singers of the 19th century. Malibran was known for her stormy personality and dramatic intensity, becoming a legendary figure after her death at age 28. Contemporary accounts of her voice describe its range, power and flexibility as extraordinary.

Malibran was born in Paris as María Felicia García Sitches into a famous Spanish musical family. Her father, Manuel García, was a celebrated tenor much admired by Rossini, having created the role of Count Almaviva in his The Barber of Seville. García was also a composer and an influential vocal instructor, and he was her first voice teacher. He was described as inflexible and tyrannical; the lessons he gave his daughter became constant quarrels between two powerful egos.

Malibran first appeared on stage in Naples with her father in Paër’s Agnese, when she was 8 years old. When she was 17, she was a singer in the choir of the King's Theatre in London. When prima donna Giuditta Pasta became indisposed, García suggested that his daughter take over in the role of Rosina in The Barber of Seville. The audience loved the young mezzo, and she continued to sing this role until the end of the season. When the season closed, Garcia immediately took his operatic troupe to New York. The troupe consisted primarily of the members of his family: Maria, her brother, Manuel, and her younger sister, Pauline García-Viardot, who would later become a famous singer in her own right.

Malibran's Hotel 1899 -town hall todayThis was the first time that Italian opera was performed in New York. Over a period of nine months, Maria sang the lead roles in eight operas, two of which were written by her father. In New York, she met and hastily married a banker, Francois Eugene Malibran, who was 28 years her senior. It is thought that her father forced Maria to marry him in return for the banker's promise to give Manuel Garcia 100,000 francs. However, according to other accounts, she married simply to escape her tyrannical father. A few months after the wedding, her husband declared bankruptcy, and Maria was forced to support him through her performances. After a year, she left Malibran and returned to Europe.

In Europe, Malibran sang the title role at the premiere of Donizetti's Maria Stuarda The opera, based on Friedrich Schiller's play Mary Stuart, aroused the fury of the censors, who demanded textual amendments, which Malibran typically ignored. Malibran became romantically involved with the Belgian violinist, Charles de Beriot. The pair lived together as a common-law couple for six years and a child was born to them in 1833, before Maria obtained an annulment of her marriage to Malibran. Felix Mendelssohn wrote an aria accompanied by a solo violin especially for the couple. Malibran sang at the Paris Opera among other major opera houses. In Paris, she met and performed with Michael Balfe.

In 1834, Malibran moved to England and began to perform in London. In late-May 1836, she starred in The Maid of Artois, written for her by Balfe. In July 1836, Malibran fell from her horse and suffered injuries from which she never recovered. She refused to see a physician and continued to perform. She died several months after the accident in Manchester. She is buried in Laken, Belgium.

Sergei Diaghilev

(31 March 1872 – 19 August 1929)

Born to a wealthy family, Sergei Siaghilev (or Sergey Pavlovich), was born in Novrogod, Russian, on March 31, 1872. He completed Perm Gymnasium and studied law at St. Petersburg University while also enrolled in music and singing at the Conservatory of Music. One of his music professors was Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. He was primarily aided by Alexandre Benois in belonging to the influential circle of artists and in focusing to develop Western and Russian Art. Initially, his dream was to become a composer.

(http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/917/296572comportraitofserg.jpg) (http://img51.imageshack.us/i/296572comportraitofserg.jpg/)

With strong support from influential associates including Alexandre Benois and Leon Bakst, he published an important art periodical Mir Iskusstva (The World of Art) in St. Petersburg and mounted a massive exhibition of historical portraits. From Russia, he travelled to the West – first in Paris, with an exhibition of Russian painting, concerts of Russian music, and the first production outside Russia, of Modest Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov with Challapin.

Through ballet, Sergei Diaghilev found an art form which combined the disciplines of choreography, music and painting: his passion for experiment along with patronage of artists in these fields produced numerous 20th-century masterpieces. Ballets Russes had a profound influence on Europe's cultural life. He died aged 57. Diaghilev's enormous achievement can be measured by the range of artists he employed and often 'discovered':

Maria Malibran is no stranger to the Mansion on No1 Regent St as she already performed last year for an unforgetable evening of Songs to the great delight of our hosts  :love:

Dear Friends :wave:,

While Mr & Mrs Macclesfield are still gallivanting happily around the UK, works have started in the Gardens of the Mansion on Regent St and Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin were very busy today decorating the Pavilion.

As the youg Ladies of the House are showing a keen interest to gardening, the morning started with a vegetable plot demonstration in the park.

Then as the morning went on, Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin got on with their project of turning a Garden pavillion into a Flower Heaven.

After such a busy day, sitting down to enjoy two scrumptious was a true delight for both our protagonists  :love:

A Sunny Day on Regent St !

Before moving on to their last work at the Mansion which will be decorating the front door porch on the Regent St side with climbing roses, ivy and morning glory, Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin enjoyed a day out in the sun ! This is the first time that I attempted to take pictures with the sunshine on  :-[

Once Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin will have completed their work on the outdoors, I will introduce you to M'am Bridget, the Head Cook at the Mansion who will take us on a complete redecoration of the Victorian Kitchen...

Have a great week-end  8-)!

A huge Thank You to you all, dear Friends :wave: !

I know that my Summer diorama is continuing as we are entering the Autumn season, but this will not be the first time as you may well remember that I was creating Winter dioramas of Victorian Tales back in august 2009 and I remember laughing at my preparation board while sprinkling artificial snow while it was positively boiling hot outside :lol: !

So I guess, I will give you a little taste of summer long after its gone ;)...

I am extremely excited now that Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin are about to tackle the decoration of the Regent St side of the Villa and those who remember my Autumn / Winter views of the house are going to discover the Villa of my ever happy little Victorians in full Springtime bloom !

I wish you all a great week-end  :**:!

Karim :)

Miss Periwinkle & Monsieur Firmin present

Springtime has arrived on Regent St !

Miss Periwinkle & Monsieur Firmin, our very own Spring Fairies have worked their magic today by transforming Regent St into a Springtime Heaven with climbing Roses, Morning Glory, Ivy and creating hedges in bloom, colorful flower beds, not to forget the perfect English lawns ! In the evening, they both enjoyed a glass of wine on the front porch of the Mansion ! A well deserved treat after such a busy day !

Thank you so much dear Friend  :wave:

Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin are now drawing the plans of the gardens that will link the Verandah of the Mansion and the Garden Pavillion, and guess what ? The grounds of the Mansion had to be extended accordingly so that my "working board" has now been extended from an initial 150cm x 90cm to 220cm x 90cm  :lol: !

These gardens will include a Fountain as a centerpiece with hopefully a realistic water effect, alleys "paved with bricks" bordered with small hedges of box, a versatile lawn area elevated and accessible by a small staircase where the afternoon tea and the evening play will take place, a vegetable garden with individual vegetable plots including growing tomatoes, lettuces, cabbages, carrots, melons and so on and a larger area passed the main gates of the Mansion where the carriages will drop their distinguished Guests  :)

Adding 70cm of "working board" has really helped me putting things back into perspective and I believe - sorry, I mean Miss Periwinkle & Monsieur Firmin believe - that the Summer Garden Party should definitely develop quite well on this new space.

For those who may be wondering why I will take you into a Summer garden Party as Autumn is settling in and the project is still at quite an early stage, I will simply answer that I cherished this project ever since February this year, but it did not materialize mainly because of lack of time as my attention was absorbed on more urgent matters.

I am a passionate individual and I give my 100% in everything I commit to do and as I can be a bit of perfectionist, I waited for the right time to kick start this project.

So I am afraid that the Summer tribulations of my happy little Victorians will take you well into the winter and you may well be walking into crushing snow when they will start gallivanting around the gardens in bloom, as I still have the central gardens to complete and the kitchen to redecorate before the Victorian tale start  :-[

For the moment, the space between the Verandah of the Mansion and the Pavillion is laid with blank A3 sheets of paper like a blank canvas upon which the magic must happen, and it will  ;)

Thank you for following the Making Of !

Karim :)

Thank you dear friends for your encouraging comments  :wave:

As I am mid-way now through this project, I would like to thank the person who inspired me to create my very first Victorian tale back in 2009 after looking at her wonderful and very imaginative dioramas : Meermaid from the German site Klickywelt.de.

Her diorama on the Christmas theme called "Christmas Market under the Snow" was nothing short of enchanting I first looked at it and it still is  :love:

I truly love your colour pallette, Karim!

What I love about these pictures (and about others' pictures as well) is that it allows us to see beauty as seen or imagined through someone else's eyes.  That is truly art.

Admittedly I have been mainly a pirates themed playmofan, but thanks to you (who yourself was inspired by someone else's victorian theme), I now must save up for some victorian pieces because I am inspired to try my hand at it as well.

Thank you so much for your sharing!  Absolutely wonderful!

Charles Frederick Worth

(http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/6668/2hdbd00z.jpg) (http://img695.imageshack.us/i/2hdbd00z.jpg/)

Charles Frederick Worth, the designer who dominated Parisian fashion in the latter half of the nineteenth century, was born in Bourne, Lincolnshire, England, on October 13, 1826. As a young man, Worth worked as an apprentice and clerk for two London textile merchants. In addition to gaining a thorough knowledge of fabrics and the business of supplying dressmakers during this time, he also visited the National Gallery and other collections to study historic portraits. Elements of the sitters' dresses in these paintings would later provide inspiration for Worth's own designs, for both fashionable ensembles and masquerade costumes.

(http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/2862/charlesfrederickworth.jpg) (http://img213.imageshack.us/i/charlesfrederickworth.jpg/)

Worth relocated to Paris in 1845. Despite early struggles, he found work with Gagelin, a prominent firm that sold textile goods, shawls, and some ready-made garments. Worth became Gagelin's leading salesman and eventually opened a small dressmaking department for the company, his first position as a professional dressmaker. He contributed to the reputation of the firm with prize-winning designs displayed in the Great Exhibition in London (1851) and the Exposition Universelle in Paris (1855). The designer opened his own firm with a business partner in 1858.

(http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/3599/bertallunerobedechezwor.jpg) (http://img844.imageshack.us/i/bertallunerobedechezwor.jpg/)

Worth's rise as a designer coincided with the establishment of the Second Empire in France. The restoration of a royal house in 1852, with Napoleon III (1808–1873) as the new emperor, once again made Paris an imperial capital and the setting for numerous state occasions. Napoleon III implemented a grand vision for both Paris and France, initiating changes and modernization that revitalized the French economy and made Paris into a showpiece of Europe. The demand for luxury goods, including textiles and fashionable dress, reached levels that had not been seen since before the French Revolution (1789–99). When Napoleon III married Empress Eugénie (1826–1920), her tastes set the style at court. The empress's patronage ensured Worth's success as a popular dressmaker from the 1860s onward.

(http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/5062/empresseugenie1.jpg) (http://img3.imageshack.us/i/empresseugenie1.jpg/)

Worth's designs are notable for his use of lavish fabrics and trimmings, his incorporation of elements of historic dress, and his attention to fit. While the designer still created one-of-a-kind pieces for his most important clients, he is especially known for preparing a variety of designs that were shown on live models at the House of Worth. Clients made their selections and had garments tailor-made in Worth's workshop.

(http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/457/34954869f140ac8a6m.jpg) (http://img442.imageshack.us/i/34954869f140ac8a6m.jpg/)

Although Worth was not the first or only designer to organize his business in this way, his aggressive self-promotion earned him the titles "father of haute couture" and "the first couturier." By the 1870s, Worth's name frequently appeared in ordinary fashion magazines, spreading his fame to women beyond courtly circles.

The House of Worth ( Paris )

(http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/3310/worthsalon.jpg) (http://img148.imageshack.us/i/worthsalon.jpg/)

The large number of surviving Worth garments in the permanent collection of The Costume Institute, as well as in other institutions in the United States, is testament to Worth's immense popularity among wealthy American patrons, as well as European royalty and aristocrats. Many clients traveled to Paris to purchase entire wardrobes from the House of Worth. For the wealthy woman, a complete wardrobe would consist of morning, afternoon, and evening dresses, and lavish "undress" items such as tea gowns and nightgowns, which were worn only in the privacy of one's home. Women also looked to Worth to supply gowns for special occasions, including weddings and ornate masquerade balls, a favorite entertainment in both the United States and Europe. Worth's clients also included stars of the theater and concert stage. He supplied performance costumes and personal wardrobes for leading actresses and singers such as Sarah Bernhardt, Lillie Langtry, Nellie Melba, and Jenny Lind.

Good evening dear Friends  :wave:

Some of you might be wondering what is happening to the making of of Summer Garden Party on Regent St ?

I would like to apologize for the interruption of my work mainly due to the fact that I am covering for other GM's in the group while they are away which means that I am not having any days off between 17/10 and 26/11 and a more materialist reason which is having me saving for my first holiday back in home in France in a one year for Christmas  :-[

2010 was by all means one of the most difficult years of my life so far and you will all understand that no words can express the feeling of finally being at home amongst the ones I love for Christmas  :cloud9:

I am a bit of a perfectionist and when it comes to my hobby, I have certain expectations and I would like this new work to be as enchanting as possible even if the final costs exceeds my initial calculations as it means a lot to me to deliver something which will match my expectations and yours.

I have found my "dream fountain" which I will purchase ain January and will continue the making of the main central gardens from January / February onwards.

Myself and my happy little Victorians will catch up with you all then  :love:

Have a great week !

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

As I was going through the postcards I brought back from my escapades around the United Kingdom this year, I found two postcards from the Westonbirt Arboretum which have inspired this impromptu serie of portraits. I have added to the backgrounds a watercolor of Chenonceau Castle in France which I love and here are the results introducing some of the accessories and characters featured in my next diorama...

Dear Friends  :wave:

I would like to first of all wish each and everyone of you a Happy & Healthy New Year 2011  :cham:

Now that I am back from my holidays in France, time has come to catch up with my project of Summer Garden Party on Regent St and I must say that after walking in the crunching snow in the Streets of England, being greeted by the ever cheerful smiles of my little Victorians standing on the porch of the Victorian Mansion dressed in Springtime was a comforting and welcoming sight.

Just like for my previous works on the Autumn Theme, I will develop a few colorful little tales and this time, I would love to add characters designed by my Friends from the Playmobil online community  :love:

The central theme is of course a Summer Garden Party on Regent St and will mostly take place outside from the kitchen porch where the daily deliveries are done, and the main gardens which I have yet to finish and decorate which already include a Garden Pavillion and will also feature a large ornate fountain, lawns, allees bordered with flowers and statues and a central elevated lawn surrounded by bricks and accessible by a few stairs.

I will not unveil the details of the victorian tales to come, but I can already confirm that the first scene will start early morning with the delivery of our now famous little milk boy, will then carry on in the day with a picking up of vegetables and fruits in the vegetable plot which will be taken to the kitchen to be prepared for the feast that same evening. The day will continue with the decoration of the garden pavillion with tables, fruits and flowers displays, and the first Guests will be arriving mid-afternoon for the traditional tea served in the central elevated lawn area.

Then, the evening will bring a magical atmosphere in the gardens with fairy lights and our Guests will return to sit in front of the central elevated lawn area now transformed in a stage for a play.

This play will be the Three Musketeers and I would like a scene between the Musketeers, Constance her Majesty's Anne d'Autriche Lady in waiting, Cardinal Richelieu and the evil Milady de Winter. The legendary Sarah Bernhardt will play either Constance or Milady.

Then the second part of the evening will see the greatest Opera singer of the century, Maria Malibran making a grand entrance in the gardens for a few enchanting arias.

After such an entertaining evening, our Guests will be hungry and a wonderful buffet will be awaiting them in the Garden Pavillion.

These are the main storylines of my diorama which will later develop to a robbery, an antiques auction and a few other surprizes if everything goes to plan.

The idea of welcoming Gueststars in my new works was suggested to me by our Friend Tonguello  :wave: who is preparing a high profile Countess for my diorama and I think that developping a victorian tale involving your creations as well as mine would really be a great idea  :love:

Please do check the following list of characters which will appear in my diorama at some point in one of my tales to come, and do not hesitate to contact me with the name of your character chosen by you and tell me a little bit about him or her ( please bear in mind that all characters must fit the Victorian theme of my diorama ) :

Delivery Man

Street Children

Gardeners

Kitchen Maid

Head Cook

Maid

Butler

Housekeeper

Musicians

Three Musketeers

Cardinal Richelieu

Sarah Bernhardt

Maria Malibran

Impressario

Photographer

Journalist

Milady the Winter

Arsene Lupin ( the famous French high society's robber )

Sherlock Holmes

Dr Watson

Inspector Lestrade

Professor Moriarty

Professor Moriarty's "bad guys" assistant

Victorian Policemen

Victorian Postman

Man leading the Antiques Auction

Fine Art's Museum Guards

Artist Painter

and of course Victorian Ladies & Gentlemen all dressed to the latest fashion

I will welcome all your suggestions and comments and your character not only feature in one or more than one dioramas but will be listed with the name chosen by yourself as well as your own nickname if you so wish.

I think that it will be tremendous fun for all of us involved in the project and I am hoping that we will be able to stage a truly international production staging our favorite Playmobil !

These figures will of course be returned to you when my last victorian tales will come to an end.

So do not hesitate to contact me discuss your participation or ideas as I will welcome them with the greatest of pleasure !

I look forward to hearing from you  ;)

Your Friend Karim :)

Hello Gaston  :wave:

I know that you are already on the starting blocks  ;)

I still have to finish the main gardens and decorate the victorian kitchen so I would say that the first tale will start anytime between mid and the end of February and in view of its complexity it will necessitate a lot of work and attention to details  8}

In the meantime, I will love to hear from our Friends of the frum who wish to take part in this exciting adventure  :love:

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

The participation is opened to all members who think they could bring a figure of their own which will fit one of the characters listed in my previous post.

The figure can be customized or not as I will also welcome classic Victorian Playmos of course. The idea is to have members from the entire online Playmo community participating to an exciting project which will evolve from one diorama into a few little tales.

Those interested must simply select a figure they will either customize ot just send as it is but with a name such as "James the Butler" and little introduction about the character such as its background and personality.

As I am still in the process of decorating the dio, there is still plenty of time to finalize this project but I think this will be an exciting idea as I will list all these Gueststars with the name chosen by you and your nickname if you so wish.

As we discussing a single Playmo figure, the cost should still be quite reasonable and the sending back of the figure will obviously be at my charge.

Please do give it a thought as I have a feeling that it will be such fun for all involved and beyond  ;)

Dear Friends  :wave:

A very ambitious project indeed !

I have heard this from my friends online and even my Mum this morning when I told her over the phone what my Summer Garden Party on Regent St was about  ;)

I know that it will be quite a job to complete but I am a very tenacious person and I rarely leave things to chance being quite a perfectionist so I will simply take my time until I consider that I have given it my very best shot.

I would like to thank all my Friends of the online Playmo Communities for their support ever since I have started this project and a huge Thank You to those who are participating to the project in the shape of Gueststars  :love:

I had the difficult task this morning of designing the main gardens of the Mansion and I used colored paper in order to shape what will be the scenery of my diorama.

In the next pictures, I invite to discover these gardens which can be read in the following color codes and what they represent :

Burgundy Circle : the Grand Central Fountain

Large Burgundy Rectangle : the Elevated Garden with Lawn and removable Pond

Small Burgundy Squares : the Vegetable Plots

Lilac : Lawn Areas

White : Footpaths / Allees

As I will progress with the completion of these gardens, I will put the new elements in the place of their color coded shapes so that you will be able to see the gardens coming to life so to speak accordingly...

For each of these portraits, I will be taking about 1000 pictures of which only 100 will be selected to appear in the story telling section of the Playmo Forums to be later mounted as a musical video of 5 to 10 minutes each.

These 5 portraits alone will represent a considerable amount of work with regards to the planning, setting up, lighting and photographing so the project will only evolve to the second part of my tales which will be about Sherlock Holmes and the Professor Moriarty, so I invite all the members concerned by these characters to take their time please.

Once the main gardens will be completed, I will start decorating the Victorian Kitchen and the Grand Room of the Mansion.

Just like for the outdoors of my diorama, I will take you through a detailed making of the Victorian Kitchen and Grand Room.

So you see that I have still a few checklists to tick before announcing as a headliner "Summer Garden Party on Regent St" but I will get there  ;)

Karim :)

Greetings from Regent St dear Friends  :wave:

Today saw Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin working their magic in the grand gardens of the Mansion !

Our charming pair of inspired Gardeners were very busy laying the quintessential English lawns and creating the vegetable plot.

A cheerful glass of white grape juice was welcomed at the end of such a busy day !

In the following pictures, you will be able to see the transformation of the gardens from paper templates to lawn and soil with an aerial view of the gardens to see the overall effect.

You will also see a aerial view of Regent St including the gardens extending to the Summer Pavillion.

In the final pictures, I invite you to have an insight of the "things to come"...

Our Friends still have to lay the brick pavements in the alleys, hopefully today, and add a few topiary touches to the gardens.

The final touches will come in the shape of the elevated lawn area and the grand fountain still highlighted in purple as well as the flower beds which will bring a definite touch of color and Springtime to the Gardens of the Mansion on Regent St !

Good evening from Regent St dear Friends !  :wave:

What a busy day this has been !

It is Saturday on Regent St and yet Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin have been working since the morning laying the brick pavement for the alleys and the warm terracotta color has immediately transformed the scenery.

Our two Friends then went on by adding topiary trees to the scenery, and four streetlamps in the circle surrounding the future grand fountain.

The last finishing touches of the day were two large urns guarding each side of the grand staircase and two statues at the entrance of a pergola upon which roses will soon be climbing.

My initial vision of the project definitely came to life with today’s works and I am very grateful to Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin for bringing their magic touch in the Gardens on Regent St !

Yes, I did ! This is a kit including multicolored flower petals and wire awhich I found in a miniature fair.

The arch / pergola with the statues was purchased at Christmas by my Mum as we were shopping for decorations as she told me "you may use this in one of your creations" et voila  ;)

Further works in the gardens today which saw Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin putting the lamps surrounding the future fountain into place which included dissimulating the electric cords beneath the flooring elements then taped.

To be on the safe side, all the flooring elements can still be moved around or adjusted and will remain as such until they will be sure that the diorama is completed.

They attended to the base of the lamps upon which was added green moss and just like for the lamps framing the street entrance of the Mansion, climbing variegated ivy was added to each lamp to create a botanical effect.

Then finally came the magical time of switching the lights on and once again, our little Gardeners happily cheered to another job well done !

Excellent photo story as always, I enjoy catching up with your work.

Are these pictures going to be used in a behind the scenes film to go with the main story? I think everyone would love to see the house and gardens grow like a one of those time lapse films.

Thank you dear Friends for your encouraging comments  :wave:

What an exciting day this has been  :)

Not only Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin have worked their magic in the gardens but some very special Guests have arrived on Regent St  :love:

We wish a very warm welcome to :

Mrs Applepie ( created by Isa from Tricornejock.com   )

The lovely Mrs Applepie is one of the finest Pastry Chef of the Victorian and is just returning from Paris where she worked with Louis Ernest Laduree.  She will be in residence at the Mansion until the first tale will start. In the meantime, she will work with the Kitchen Supervisor Miss Adelaide on the decoration of the Victorian Kitchen.

The Three Musketeers ( created by Jean Mi from Tricornejock.com   )

Athos   played by Henry Irving

Portos   played by James Crew

Aramis played by Charles Kelly

These 3 Gentlemen are amongst the finest Actors of the Era and will be in residence at the Mansion until the victorian tales start.

WOW! :omg:
Words fail me,
I honestly cannot express how brilliant,
how lovely, how simply stunning your work here is!!! :o :o :o

Just one thing... :)
After so many glasses of (what appears to be) champagne or wine,
I wouldn't want them working on my lawn. (Just Kidding.) ;)

Sorry if people have asked this before,
I didn't get a chance to read any of the text.
But, where do you get your scenery pieces from?! :love:
They are absolutely gorgeous!
And I think when I start refurbishing an old dollhouse
to go with the few Victorians I collect,
small things like these would be marvelous to have around. 8-)

Thank you very much dear Friend  :wave:

I am so happy that my diorama has inspired such nice comments from a Member who has been following my works for sometimes now  :love:

I indeed spend a huge amount of time preparing each scene and researching what I believe is the ideal accessory to the Victorian theme.

Every accessory is not only thought as a complement but also needs to fit in a scale approaching that of Playmobil which is by all means quite a difficult exercise  8}

Now that the gardens are nearly completed, I will start working on the decoration of the Victorian Kitchen and once again scale will be the word on top of accessorizing the Playmobil Victorian Theme with items which complement it without ever overshadowing it  ;)

I cannot possibly tell you how happy - I should say over the moon  :love: - that the first Guests Stars have arrived at the Mansion and it means so much to me that this project is involving Members from the entire Online Playmobil Community as it really is a dream come true  :cloud9:

And those who have followed my tale on the Electricity Fairy will agree that the addition of perfectly scaled indoor and outdoor lights are creating a truly magical effect to every scene  :!:

Thank you dear Friends  :wave:

Another busy Saturday for Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin who have worked on the landscaping of the main gate of the Mansion, the final box borders around the lawn areas and filling the grand fountain with Scenic Water.

Scenic Water is a magical product, a resine which when heated at 60o becomes liquid and when setting takes the appearance and transparency of water. It was a first for me but we I am quite satisfied with the results  ;)

Today was also a very special day as...

Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin presents

Milady de Winter and Jayson have arrived on Regent St  


Milady de Winter ( created by Gis from Playmofriends.com )

The beautiful and evil spy from Alexandre Dumas play "The Three Musketeers", is played by Eleonora Duse   archrival of Sarah Bernhardt who will also feature in the play. The rivalry between the two actresses will certainly lead to a few fireworks at the Mansion.

Jayson ( created by Tricornejock from Tricornejock.com )

Jayson is a stylish and helpful luggage porter and occasionaly driver who will certainly be a busy boy at the Mansion.

Thank you BB  :wave:

Milady de Winter of "The Three Musketeers"  :love:

The beautiful seductress and murderess spy who stops at nothing to serve the evil schemes of Cardinal Richelieu to ruin the reputation of Queen Ann of France. She will be at the centre of the Diamond Jewels Affair in which the Queen offered a magnificent diamond necklace to her lover the Duke of Buckingham. The young aspiring Musketeer D'Artagnan had to go to London to get the necklace back in time for the Grand Ball at Le Louvres in which King Louis XIII insisted that Queen Anne wore the splendid diamond necklace he gave her as a present for her birthday. Alerted by the Cardinal Richelieu of the possible affair between Queen Anne and the Duke of Buckingham the King made the ultimatum that the Queen should not appear to the Grand Ball unless she wore the necklace. And this is when Milady will try everything in her power to stop the young d'Artagnan to succeed in his mission :)

Thank you very much dear Friends  :wave:

I am so happy that my experience with Scenic water turned out well as the grand fountain is such an important feature of my gardens !

I also admire the great beauty and elegance of Milady de Winter and Gis has really done an outstanding job  :love:

I still have to work on the elevated lawn terrace and the vegetable plots and the victorian gardens will be completed and I just cannot believe it all started with a blank canvas 8}

I will then start the decoration of the Victorian kitchen with the help of two new characters : Mrs Applepie from Isa and my own Adelaide the Kitchen Supervisor and this should be fun to recreate the atmosphere of a victorian kitchen.

So as they say "work in progress" but I am very pleased with the gardens so far !

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

This Sunday which saw Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin enjoying a well deserved day off, inspired me a little story ;)...

Regent St Productions presents

Making Headlines or one Star may well hide Another...


It all started very quietly on this Sunday morning with the arrival of the little Paperboy who prepared his stand offering the newspapers of the day, ranging from the Times to Society Magazines such as The Delineator.

Sunday morning is the traditional day in London when one can enjoy the news while having a delicious homemade cooked breakfast and this morning the headline of the Society column is of some importance :

"Eleonora Dusa has arrived at the Mansion where she will be in residence as she is preparing herself for her next play "The Three Musketeers" ! "

Such news always delights everyone interested about the gossips attached to the persona of the rich and famous and our little Paperboy is guaranteed to sell all his newspapers in a record time this morning as the talk of the town will come alive...

And it did come alive in the shape of General Fitzwilliams and his Lady who saw the headlines and could not resist spreading the gossip throughout Regent St and beyond.

And soon, from Regent St to Mayfair, and from the Maid to the Palace, everyone was talking about one thing only : Eleonora Dusa had arrived at the Mansion !

And the Lady herself, not one to shy away from the Press, chose that very morning to go shopping in the fashionable shops of London accompanied by her Maid Lily and the Porter Jayson.

We are catching up with her as she is returning back to the Mansion in her usual grand style, and as she is greeted at the main gates by a crowd of Admirers and their flowers !

This alone would be enough to make further news tomorrow when another very special Guest arrives at the Mansion at the same time...

Sarah Bernhardt ( created by Lazoutte from Tricornejock.com )

The Divine as she is also known has just returned on the latest Cunard Steamer from her triumphant Tour of the American Theatres where she delighted the crowds with her unique acting and outstanding beauty. One says that she even performed at the White House for a private dinner.

She is accompanied by her Maid Nelly who is holding a parasol to protect the Divine from the Sun, the only star in Sarah's own words to cast a shadow over her own radiance :lol:.

Although Eleonora Dusa and Sarah Bernhardt are archrivals, they have agreed to pause for one photo only at the gates of the Mansion to the great delight of our little Paperboy who will once again sell his newspapers in a record time on Monday morning ;)...

WOW, the fountain is awesome with the "water" Karim :-)

I really like Jayson, awesome klicky TJ!

Sarah Bernhardt is also a an awesome custom :-) Could you please show her from the back because I am a bit confused how the back is done. Great Work Lazoute!!

I would like to point out that the only thing I did in regards to this klicky is sending it. My wife actually assembled the klicky and I will make sure all your kind words will get forwarded to her :-)

The short story is really nice Karim I am so excited about this project, thanks for all the time you put into this!

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

A lovely Saturday on Regent St which saw a bright sunny and quite mild day  8-)

While Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin are busy working on the elevated lawn terrace and the vegetable plots, I am delighted to introduce 3 new characters to you  ;)

Summer Garden Party on Regent St

The Making of the Victorian Kitchen

introducing  

Miss Adelaide, Head of the Kitchen

Mrs Applepie, Pastry Chef

and Miss Bridget, Kitchen Maid


As you will see, the Victorian Kitchen is a blank canvas just like the gardens used to be, so this talented Trio will be working at creating a realistic and colorful Kitchen in which all the delicious dishes will be prepared for the Summer Garden Party  :chef:

Thank you dear Friends  :wave:

The flooring material is a plastic embossed tiles sheet which is incredibly realistic and not only has a lovely reflection of its own but brightens the space as it main color is white which always helps when taken indoor pictures  ;)

Very well done. Looks very good indeed.

Did you glue the paper directly on the walls or did you put something in between? What glue did you use? Did you have to do something special to it to get it so smooth?

I agree, Karim, this is so much fun to watch,  the cook and maids are so excited, you can almost hear them clapping their hands each time.  Your dollhouse accents add so much, I especially love those new shiny copper pots.  What cook would not want wonderful new pots in her new kitchen.

Every year, once winter is nearly over, I look for the first sight of daffodils and I spotted a beautiful bunch in bloom this morning ! Always such a cheerful sight to know that Spring is nearly there  :love:

And the Victorian Kitchen was a beehive of activity too as our three Ladies worked their magic around the kitchen under the vigilant eye of Rupert the Cat !

As the kitchen is coming to life, a familiar figure made a surprise visit as...

And last but not least...

Today saw the arrival of a very special Guest on Regent St  :love:

Lady Hortensia Van den Hesse

created by our Friend Tonguello ( Gaston )

Lady Hortensia is the queen of high society and is celebrated from New York to London and Paris. Born from a wealthy family in Buenos Aires ( Argentina ) she now defines etiquette wherever she goes and is feared accordingly as one word from her can make or break a reputation. Her impeccable taste for organising lavish parties is well known and you can see her posing for a few exclusive pictures in the Mansion Summer Pavillion.

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

Another bright and sunny Saturday on Regent St and beyond which saw a new character joining the cast  :love:

Today, we are welcoming...

Peter the little Streetboy discovers the Gardens of the Mansion

Peter grew up in the London East End district and lost both his parents from pneumonia at an early age. He was then forced to work for a living and was once a mustard seller, then a young Chimney Sweeper. He even worked as a Crossing Sweeper sweeping a way through the mud and horse dung of the main paths to make way for ladies and gentlemen until he found a job as a paper boy on Regent St. The arrivals of our prestigious Guests sent the newspapers sales rocketing and the young Peter was then spotted by Ms Adelaide. After enquiring about the little boy's story, our three Kitchen Ladies with a heart of gold decided to give him a home as taking him in as a young kitchen helper !

We are catching up with young Peter as he arriving at the Mansion and he is soon introduced to Ms Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin who will take him around a tour of the Grand Gardens to the delight of the little boy  :love:

However, the reality of life of the Victorian Street Children was somewhat different and very few of them were lucky enough to ever cross the path of someone with a heart of gold like Ms Adelaide...

Remembering the Victorian Street Children

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/900174streetkids.jpg)

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/494834kids200707468x407.jpg)

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/593812work.jpg)

Children were often forced to work almost as soon as they could walk. This was not something new to the Victorian period as children had always been been expected to work for hundreds of years. Many were used as cheap labour.

The working conditions for children during the Victorian times

Children worked very long hours with little breaks and no fresh air.

They often worked in very dangerous conditions resulting in injuries or even death.

Very young children were expected to work

There was no education for the poor, so it was very unlikely they could get better paid jobs when they were older.

Children were paid very little because they were younger

Most children had no choice - they needed to work to help their families earn enough money to live.

The lucky children got apprenticed in a trade, the less lucky ones worked on farms or helped with the spinning. When new types of work appeared with the development of industries and factories, it seemed perfectly natural to use children for work that adults couldn't do; Crawling underneath machinery or sitting in coal mines to open and close the ventilation doors.

Chimney Sweeps  

Chimney sweeping was a job children could do better than adults. Small boys (starting at the age of 5 or 6 years) would be sent scrambling up inside the chimney to scrape and brush soot away. They came down covered in soot, and with bleeding elbows and knees.

"I have two boys working for me. after work their arms and legs are bleeding so I rub them with salt-water before sending them up another chimney" Sweep Master

The chimneys were usually very narrow (in some cases as small as 30cm) and twisted. Children often got stuck or froze with terror in the cramped darkness - in these cases the Master Chimney Sweeper, would simply light the fire underneath to 'encourage' them to get on with their work.

The work was dangerous and painful. Some boys got stuck and died of suffocation.

"I never got stuck myself but some of my friends have and were taken out dead." boy aged 8

In 1832 the use of boys for sweeping chimneys was forbidden by law, however, boys continued to be forced through the narrow winding passages of chimneys in large houses.

Factories

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/941876mill.jpg)

Children worked long hours and sometimes had to carry out some dangerous jobs working in factories.

"I start work promptly at 5:00 in the morning and work all day till 9:00 at night. That’s 16 hours! We are not allowed to talk, sit or look out of the window whilst we work. The only day off from work I get is on Sundays, when we have to go to church." Girl aged 9

In textile mills children were made to clean machines while the machines were kept running, and there were many accidents. Many children lost fingers in the machinery and some were killed, crushed by the huge machines.

In match factories children were employed to dip matches into a dangerous chemical called phosphorous. The phosphorous could cause their teeth to rot and some died from the effect of breathing it into their lungs

Factory working for Children - the facts

Children were much cheaper than adults as a factory owner did not have to pay them as much.

There were plenty of children in orphanages, so they could be replaced easily if accidents did occur.

Children were small enough to crawl under machinery to tie up broken threads.

1833 the Factory Act was made law. It was now illegal for children under 9 to be employed in textile factories

Street Sellers

Thousands of poor children worked and lived on the streets. Many were orphans, others were simply neglected. They worked very long hours for very little money. To buy bread, they sold matches, firewood, buttons, flowers or bootlaces, polished shoes, ran errands and swept the crossing places where rich people crossed the busy roads

Coal Mines

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/3864511.jpg)

Coal was the main source of power in Victorian times. It was used for cooking and heating, and for driving machinery, trains and steam ships.

In order to produce more coal, the mines needed more workers and children as young as 5 years old were used to supply this need. They worked for up to 12 hours a day

Trappers

Trappers were children who operated the air doors providing ventilation for the miners. By keeping the fresh air flowing they prevented the build up of dangerous gases. The children would sit in the draft of the doors, cold, damp and very frightened, with little or no light for 12 hours a day.

"I sit in the dark down in the pit for 12 hours a day. I only see daylight on Sundays when I don't work down the pit. Once I fell asleep and a wagon ran over my leg" Boy aged 7

"I hate the dark, it scares me. I never go to sleep. Sometimes I sing, there is nothing else to do other than open and close the door." Girl aged 8

Drawers

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/252937coal1.jpg)

Drawers pulled heavy carts of cut coal to the pits surface with heavy chains around their waists.

" I am a drawer, and work from six o'clock in the morning to six at night. stop about an hour at noon to eat my dinner: I have bread and butter for dinner; I get no drink.

I have a belt round my waist, and a chain passing between my legs, and I go on my hands and feet. The tunnels are narrow and very wet where I work. My clothes are wet through almost all day long." Girl aged 10

The Mines Act was passed by the Government in 1847 forbidding the employment of women and girls and all boys under the age of ten down mines. Later it became illegal for a boy under 12 to work down a mine.

Let's never forget these brave Victorian Street Children  :)

Little Peter certainly looks utterly delighted with his new surroundings. I am sure he will be very happy.

And thanks for the historical note. Here in Cornwall in addition to work in the tin mines, young boys were sent through the arsenic "labyrinths" to scrape the arsenic off the walls into sacks. They didn't live very long, bless their little hearts (and those who did went down the mines when they got too big).  Arsenic is a by product of tin mining and was burnt off and the best way of "catching it" was to build a network of small brick tunnels and it would stick to the walls in powder form. All they had for protection was a handkerchief tied round their nose and mouth. The arsenic was mostly exported to the US as it was effective in killing the boll weevils which decimated the cotton crops.  Until DDT was considered a safer option!!!!

Karim, you should be a history teacher!

This is a very sad part of history, but you -like always - have the right words to tell it and to touch people.

Your storys are full of live and I´ve learned a lot from you!

Thank you!

Thank you dear Friends  :wave:

Everything was not only silk and lace in the Victorian Times and I feel it is sometimes necessary to put things in perspective  ;)

I am working at re-creating the atmosphere of a Victorian Mansion where the "upstairs / downstairs" rules were so rigid and social classes did not inter collide, but with a little touch of lightness and fantasy.

I am expecting new Guests to arrive on Regent St soon and I am so excited that a dream of getting a community behind a project is becoming a reality  :cloud9:

Between you and I, creating Springtime well ahead of the season this winter really enlightened my days as even when it snowed outside, flowers came to my life on my little heavenly world of 2.50m x 1.25m  ;)

Have a great week end  8-)

Good evening dear Friends  :wave:

I thank you for your encouraging comments  :)

I would like to share with a you a few tips with regards to materials which I am using to create certain effects and other materials I simply cannot live without when it comes to creating a diorama :

Tacky Wax ( from Deluxe Materials )

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/663382deluxwmaterials201.jpg)

Tacky Wax is a Wax adhesive for holding miniature ornaments in place.

It also allows repositioning.

I have recently used it to position copper moulds for the Victorian Kitchen which are hollow by definition with only a thin edge and using superglue would have created a real mess on the wallpaper.

Miniaturists are using Tacky Wax to position a great number of ornaments, especially on walls and these remain as such for as long as desired.

Scenic Water ( from Deluxe Materials )

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/418257scenicwater.jpg)

Re-meltable one part resin. Use to simulate moving water, bubbles in baths, pans. Wobbly Jellies, drinks etc.

I used it when I worked a creating a water effect in my two tier fountain and I really enjoyed using this product.

To use Scenic Water:

Place the pot in hot water until the resin melts ( from 60o celcius onwards )

Alternatively cut a small piece of Scenic Water out of the pot and place in a mixing
pot. Cook on full in a microwave for about 5-10 seconds until liquid,depending on the size of the piece.

Stir in Scenic colours or food colouring in tiny amounts and then use as required. It will set in about one minute. Mix red and green for a brown colour for gravy, tea and coffee.

Scenic colours have the correct colours for every shade combination an are made up in a Scenic Water component and therefore compatible.

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/756762sceniccolours.jpg)

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/748435scenicwatertint.jpg)

Pouring Thin Colored Layers of Scenic Water for Multi Colored Dollhouse Desserts

To pour thin colored layers for molded gelatine salads or dolls house scale desserts, think carefully how you want your layers and colors to appear. Some colors will affect the color above or below them

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/288542scenicwaterpour.jpg)

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/998740scenicwaterlayer.jpg)

After the first layer of blue was poured in the main body area, a second layer of turquoise green was added to the entire body, and finally a layer of pale green was set on the top of the mold, to create a pale base as contrast for the fish gelatine

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/266584scenicwaterfish.jpg)

A few basic results using this technic :

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/485926scenicwaterasst.jpg)

And this miniature dessert was created using the same technic :

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/3368443362341735d55ac1f296.jpg)


To make bubbles on the top of Scenic Water, make a strong solution of dish-washing liquid and whisk until it foams. Suck up some of the foaming a pin point syringe and apply to the surface of Scenic Water before it sets.
The bubbles will absorb some of the gel and set firm.


To make running water use a pin point syringe to attach molten water to the tap and extrude the molten water slowly from it; re-warm the resin if need be by re emersing the syringe into warm water

FIMO & Sculpey Polymer Clay

Polymer Clay is a man-made modelling material which is extremely artist-friendly and versatile. We stock all available colours and sizes of FIMO Clay and Sculpey Clay

FIMO Classic

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/543096fimoclassic594x600.jpg)

Available in the following colors :

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/135390fimoclassicsMED.jpg)

FIMO Classic is the original FIMO clay. FIMO Classic clay is ideal for professional crafters and artists. Its firm texture keeps its shape even in intricate detail designs. High breaking resistance after oven hardening. Oven-bake at 110°C for 30 minutes to harden permanently.

The blocks are divided into 8 segments to make cutting and blending easy. They become soft and pliable after kneading.


FIMO Soft

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/735906fimoh2.jpg)

FIMO Soft is the easiest to use and most versatile FIMO clay. Although convenient to use objects made with FIMO Soft clay are very durable and strong after baking.  Oven-bake at 110°C for 30 minutes to harden permanently.

FIMO Effect - Metallic, Glitter & Transluscent

FIMO Effect comes in five different effects for special impact. Combine in projects with FIMO Soft and FIMO Classic.

Nightglow - fluorescent, extremely brilliant
Glitter - for objects with glitter shine
Transluscent - allows light penetration
Stone - for extraordinary stone optics
Metallic - contains minute mica particles


FIMO Soft and FIMO Effect are available in the following colors :

You can add some decoration on the top  :)

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/939402DSCF6425.jpg)

Here are a few examples of simple cakes made using the same method :

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/145884311069646f17f8cbdae.jpg)

All the food items you will see in my diorama will be created using a similar method.

I wanted to share these few tips and informations with you as I know how many of you are creatives  ;)

I experienced much by your reports over the Viktorian Times. It is similar as with the Middle Ages. Often the people see only the knight in his shining armour, but they forget however the bad conditions, in which humans lived.

You show both sides for “your” time. Thank you very much!

... and the cakes look very tasty!

Lady Charlotte Waldorf Astor created by my Friend Emma Jane  :love:

Lady Charlotte was born Waldorf and later married in the prominent Astor family. We catch up with her as she returns from New York on the latest Cunard Steamer to prepare the opening of the Summer Season in London. Her husband, Lord John Rudolph Astor is still in New York working on his latest business venture : the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

Thank you very much dear Friends  :wave:

Another incredibly sunny day in England which saw a lot of activity in the Grand Room of the Mansion as...

We are welcoming Lady Edwina Weldon from Weldon's Fashions !

Lady Edwina is the daughter of Walter Weldon, the founder of Weldon's Fashions which defined style in Victorian Times. She decided to take her father's business further and is now one of the most sought after interior designers of the era. While Becky and Mariette, supervized by Mrs Higgins are deep cleaning the Grand Room, Lady Charlotte and her Aunt Lady Van den Hesse are enjoying breakfast on the terrace discussing the details of the launch of the London Summer Season. We are catching up with Lady Weldon as she arrives at the Mansion and is soon joined by Lady Charlotte and Lady Van den Hesse. Always a clever business woman, Edwina puts a sign advertizing her trade on the kitchen entrance's pavement which soon attracts the attention of a few Ladies passing by  ;)...

Another exciting day on Regent St which saw the arrival of a very special Guest...

We are welcoming the most famous detective of all times, Mr Sherlock Holmes !

Always cheeky and never short of British humour, Sherlock decided to make his grand entrance on Regent St in the most unexpected way...

The Victorian Police Carriage customized by my Friend Emma Jane  

It is Saturday morning on Regent St and the day starts with the usual tasks such as washing the front steps and beating the rugs, but Elliott the little Paper Boy who took over Peter is bringing a news of some importance today : the famous Sherlock Holmes is due to appear today on Regent St to celebrate the triumph of his last investigation ! Needless to say that the word gets around like gun powder and the entire St is soon in turmoil over the news !

Everyone including Mrs Applepie who is still recovering from the joy of receiving the famous cooking book of Mrs Beeton offered by Mrs Higgins  ;)

Today is also seeing the arrival of a new character who will be a regular of the tales to come, a young Journalist, Samuel Carter who is despatched by a London newspaper to cover the exceptional appearance of Sherlock Holmes on Regent St soon followed by a crowd of Sherlock's fans  :love:

Thank you so much dear Friends  :wave:

Before introducing the next instalment of my project, I would like to share with you two little tips with regards to the decoration of the Victorian Mansion.

In 2009, I had been looking for a while for a realistic flooring to create a wooden parquet effect for the Grand Room and I finally found it online on the dollshouseparade.net website :

Texture Flooring Parquet ( 50cm x 35cm ) @ £9.95

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/174080b23104f.jpg)

It has the right texture and does look incredibly realistic with the wooden effect and light reflection.

With regards to the decoration of the Great Room, I was looking for something slightly different from the typical Victorian patterns and florals, and I decided for a wood panelling for the bottom part of the wall :

Texture Wood Effect Panelling ( 53cm x 7.5 cm ) @ £2.95

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/442144Panelling.jpg)

For the top part of the wall, I was looking for a mural rather than a wallpaper and I fell in love with this Tudor frieze :

Tudor Frieze ( 44cm x 11cm ) @ £2.50

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/858943Tudor20Frieze.jpg)

Similar amazing designs are available at dollhouseroomdesigns.com :

Wall Murals ( 25cm x 10cm ) @ £3.50 each

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/879912120779M2.jpg)

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/342113WA13470large.jpg)

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/209740DAFFODILBASKET.gif)

Another busy day on Regent St which saw the talented Lady Edwina Weldon, also nicknamed "Silver Scissors" resuming the decoration of the Grand Room. Such a busy working day called for a welcoming cup of tea, of course, served by Becky & Mariette ! Lady Charlotte and her Aunt were very impressed with the works and delighted to be offered a parrot by Lady Edwina as a special thank you ! A parrot was a signature feature in every Victorian Mansion of some importance and we are welcoming today Bonaparte, the Macaw Parrot !

Lady Edwina, the "Silver Scissors" of Victorian Society

(http://img10.hostingpics.net/pics/209740DAFFODILBASKET.gif)

And as Lady Edwina and the Staff of the Mansion were discussing today's events on the front porch of the Mansion, a sumptuous carriage lead by Wilfried the Coachman made its grand entrance on Regent St to deliver a mysterious beauty dressed in a red velvet cloak. The Lady then made her way through the grand gardens towards the Summer Pavillion as we are welcoming...

Maria Malibran created by my Friend Sarrat from Spain  ( Playclicks )

Maria Malibran was the first superstar of the early Victorian Era as a Opera Singer celebrated all over Europe. Her performance will be the final act of the festivities of the Summer Garden Party on Regent St.

Beautiful choices, Karim! the parquet flooring is just perfect. And I particularly love the "paneling" for the walls! I've said it before, but it doesn't hurt to say again, it's so awesome the way all your klickys and guests are doing the decorating, very creative, and it makes the project so much more interesting, seeing every decision, really realizing all that goes into it. It makes us all feel like part of the project! Excellent ideas you have!

And the latest guest is lovely!

What a lovely day this has been ! It started with collecting fresh eggs from Jemina the Cane and Cocotte the Hen in the Vegetable Garden where Miss Adelaide and Peter later met Miss Periwinkle and Monsieur Firmin at their busiest in the gardens at that time of the year ! As they were heading back to the kitchen, they also met James the Doorman at the main gate and Wilfried the new German Coachman. And on Regent St a colorful carriage made a surprize entrance...

I believe it is Lady Charlotte - Lady Van Den Hesse's niece is it not?

Karim - it may be time to consider a cast list with images of the various named characters and who they are - what they do. Perhaps as a separate informational thread?

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

Thank you for your comments  :)

I will definitely do a presentation of the entire cast but I am expecting more Guests to arrive at the mansion soon  ;)

The Owner of No1 Regent St is indeed Lady Charlotte Waldorf Astor who is the Niece of Lady van den Hesse. Lady Charlotte is married to John Rudolph Astor who is till in New York supervising the completion of his latest business venture : the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

Lady Charlotte's Children will join the cast later on and are in boarding school in Switzerland at the moment.

I will definitely develop new characters as the pre-story unfolds...

Another busy day on Regent St which saw the ever enterprising Lady Edwina decides to attract the attention of the passing crowd, by having Jenny, Millie, Charly and Jimmy display leaflets advertising Weldon's Fashion...

Meanwhile, at the Summer Pavillion, everything is about frivolity as the Divine Sarah Bernhardt for whom the world is running out of superlatives has invited her hosts and co-stars for a tea party  ;)

Not only is she dressed to impress to the latest Parisian Fashion but she has also decided to dazzle her guests with some of her finests jewels ! It is well known that money has become far too common for the Divine Sarah who insists for being paid exclusively in jewels.

She is soon joined by her archrival, Eleanora Dusa, Lady Charlotte, Maria Malibran and of course, Lady Van den Hesse. And here they are discussing the latest fashion and the latest gossip under the amused eye of Bonaparte, the Parrott...

All that Glitters...

As the evening started, Wilfried the Coachman brought an empty carriage back to the Mansion. There was no French Barron on the 18.46 Pullman Train from Paris...

But this is the very moment when as if appeared from nowhere, a mysterious Gentleman makes his entrance at the Summer Pavillion. Dressed in a smart tuxedo and top hat, every Lady cannot but sigh of secret admiration in his presence and each of them vividly remembers that silhouette, that smile, that suave voice and yet are unable to put a name on his face  ;)...

This evening, Arsene Lupin will indulge two of his greatest passions : Beautiful Women and Jewels, of course...

We are welcoming Arsene Lupin created by my Friend Erika from France ( Uchronys.com )

The famous Arsene Lupin, created by Maurice Leblanc is as much a celebrated Dandy than a High Profile Burglar who preys on beautiful and wealthy Ladies with a predilection for extravagant jewels. Every inch a Gentleman, he always leaves his signature card and a red rose...in the empty safe deposit box  :)

Great to see all the new characters. It was fun making the butler and footmen, and it only took breaking apart 12 klickies to do it too! :D The butler is my first figure to use Milliput sculpting. When you see from the side or back in the future you will notice the long coat tails.

I hope that you are all ready to enjoy a wonderful Easter Break with lots of chocolates  ;)

I will soon create an additional thread to present each individual creations and customs from our Friends from the online Playmo Communities which are participating to this project ( Playmofriends, Tricornejock.com, Playclicks, Klickywelt and Uchronys ) in detailed pictures  :love:

A very good morning to you dear Friends  :wave:

As England is still basking in summer temperatures and sunshine, our happy little Victorians were very busy on Regent St today...

The Baking Delights of Mrs Applepie

It is Easter morning at the Mansion and as Mrs Applepie opens the kitchen door, she finds a lovely Easter Card. This will for sure be a very special day to celebrate and there is nothing like freshly baked pies to cheer up everyone ! Can you smell the apple and cherry pies just out of the oven  :love:?

And today also saw the arrival of very special Guests to the Mansion  :love:...

We are welcoming Lady Danielle and Lord Martin St Giles, their Butler Archibald and their Pet Tiger Erroll created by our Friend Daniela from Germany  

Lady Danielle is the daughter of the Earl of Cheltenham and his beloved wife Lady Mary.

Earl Alexander is a very rich man. He lives at Cheltenham Castle, breeds racehorses and is the owner of the Cheltenham Racecourse.

Danielle grew up with horses and is naturally an excellent rider.

She is interested in art. She loves opera and all kind of music, she plays the piano, but her singing is terrible.
She is a very good dancer and also friend with Diaghilev and his ballet.

She studied medicine with her mother Mary, who had been one of the famous Florence Nightingale Ladies.
Her mother died, when Danielle was fifteen. It was a horrible lost for her and her father.

Lord Martin grew up and lives in Tydd´s Manor. He is collecting and painting toy soldiers and has a huge library, especially with books about military history.

He was an Officer of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, where he met Archibald Arnstruther, who is now his butler, friend and man for everything.

He is also a good rider, he loves to play the bagpipe and his pet is a tame tiger named Errol, a gift of his old friend, the Maharaja of Jaipur. He is a funny man with a loud voice and a lot of charm and full of interesting stories.

Lord Martin and Lady Danielle met at a fox hunting party. Martin was seriously injured, when his young stallion stumbled and felt. Fortunately Danielle watched the accident and was at Martins side for help a moment later. It was love at first sight.

They were married a few months later.

Lord Martin St. Giles and Lady Danielle are a very happy couple. Love marriages are not so common in the Victorian Age, as you know.

They have friends all over the world. They love to read and discuss, they collect books and have a famous garden with healing herbs.

They are also known as a little bit eccentric ( introduction of the characters by Daniela  :wave: )

Needless to say that welcoming the first Motorcar and the first Tiger on Regent St is creating quite a buzz around the Mansion and even Rupert the Cat is puzzled by this horse powered carriage without horses ?  ;)

As soon as the distinguished couple has arrived to the Mansion, Mrs Higgins gives orders to the kitchen to prepare Lady Danielle favorite treat "Cherry Pancakes with Ice Cream" which will be served in the garden...

Beatrix Potter

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/704959untitled.png)

A little girl in Victorian England, Beatrix Potter was taught at home by governesses and studied art while her brother was sent away to school. She was a shy, reserved personality when interacting with the outside world, but her secret diary written in her own code, revealed a lively young girl with highly critical opinions of her fellow artists.

Despite not going to school Beatrix was an enthusiastic student of nature, teaching herself while painting and drawing the things she saw around her. Her childhood sketches reveal an early fascination for the subject which would continue throughout her life. She also painted many exquisite landscapes that show her pleasure in the countryside.

Beatrix and her brother, Bertram, kept many animals in their schoolroom, from mice to birds and lizards to snakes. Beatrix Potter's pets were often subjects for sketches and paintings, and were later to inspire the much-loved characters in her books.

In 1893 Beatrix Potter wrote The Tale of Peter Rabbit in a picture letter to a little boy she knew who had been ill for a long time. In 1901 she went on to privately print 250 copies of the tale in time for Christmas. A sign of the future success of this little story, these first copies sold very quickly at a shilling each, meaning she quickly had to print another 200 two weeks later.

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/612596untitled1.png)

The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published by Frederick Warne & Co. in 1902 with an initial 8000 copies printed and the tale has never been out of print since. She went on to publish another 22 little books over the next 28 years, the proceeds from which enabled her to buy Hill Top Farm in the Lake District. Eventually she went on to own 15 farms and over 4,000 acres of land in the area.

What a wonderful "episode" Karim! Everything is set up so beautifully, and those deserts make me hungry! Thank you for all the background information on Beatrix Potter, also, it lends so much interest to the story to add these little tidbits.

BTW, sorry for not answering this sooner, but I don't like to rush through your stories, so I usually save them for when I have time to really read them, as they're well worth it!

Great tiger, Daniela! This is really a truly epic project! It's so awesome to see so many characters made by so many different members coming to life here. I'm starting to regret not getting in on it myself!

Tonguello, the car is a Sylvanian Families car.

But I add the suitcases and of course the hammock for Errol. ;)

So it´s a little bit custom made.

Cool! Sylvanian Families seem to have great stuff for Playmobil use  ;D

Thank you so much dear Friends for your wonderful comments  :wave:

I am indeed dedicating a huge amount of thought, preparation, time and energy to this project as I would like it to be as refreshing, creative and Victorian in a light way.

I am having a tremendous fun preparing the food items remembering how many of you felt hungry after watching my previous tales  ;)

With the preparation of the miniatures items, photography and lighting set up are what takes the most time.

The response to this project has truly been amazing with a participation from members of the entire online Playmo community and has exceeded all my dreams  :love:

What is truly magical for me is that Friends whom I have never met in person - yet  ;)  - have decided to contribute to this project by creating a unique character to join the cast of Summer Garden Party on Regent St and I still cannot believe that members as far as Argentina, USA, Spain, Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Belgium, France have joined in !

I am preparing a separate thread to present each of their creations on an individual basis in pictures which will hopefully do justice to the incredible creativity and talent involved in them.

With regards to the project itself, I still have to complete the Great Room with a fireplace and furniture and I will then start the preparation of the first part of Summer Garden Party on Regent St which will depicts one extraordinary day starting with :

1 / Early morning to noon : picking up fruits and vegetables in the vegetable gardens and the preparation of the feast in the kitchen.

2 / noon to 5.00pm : decoration of the gardens and summer pavillion, arrival of the Guests and serving of high tea on the elevated terrace lawn including a Royal visit  ;)

3 / 5.00pm to 8.00pm : setting up the stage for the play "The Three Musketeers" on the elevated terrace, sitting down of the Guests and "show time" involving the 3 Musketeers, Cardinal Richelieu, Queen Anne and Milady de Winter.

4 / 8.00pm to 10.00pm : serving of the sumptuous evening buffet in the summer pavillion with cocktails and piano music and dancing

5 / 10.00pm : magical entrance and performance of Maria Malibran. The end  ;)

As you can see, this is quite a task that lays ahead of me but I am approaching it with the confidence, determination and good spirits that all your comments are inspiring me  :love:

From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for bringing that many little sunshines and rainbows to my days  :cloud9:

I must agree, THANK YOU Karim! Your installments are always magificent. The detail in the pictures, background story and setup are a marvel to behold.

For me the "magic" of this adventure is seeing my (and my wives) creations a longside your marvelous work as well as the work of our fellow playmofriends.

Much like bb I am always behind on commenting on your stories because I just don't start them when I feel slightly rushed.

Looking eagerly forward to what else you will bring to us :-)

Good morning dear Friends :wave:,

I will shortly be starting the first chapter of my Summer Garden Party and Lady Edwina Weldon will have the pleasure of closing this Making of with the decoration of the Great Room of the Mansion  ;)

In the meantime, I would like to share with you the most extraordinary and magical creations of one of the world's most inspired Miniature Food Artisan, Betsy Niederer :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzS-1jFDPJ0

Betsy is for me the most inspiring Miniature Food Artisan ever  :love:

Summer Garden Party on Regent St will be as much a celebration of the Playmobil Victorian Theme as a celebration of the miniature food from the picking up of the vegetables and fruits in the garden, delivery of the goods in the morning to their transformation in the victorian kitchen to the serving of the feast in the evening.

This is something that has not been done before and I hope that you will enjoy this journey into the world of miniature food  :)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

As I will be very soon starting the first chapter of the Summer Garden Party on Regent St, I would like to close this Making Of with the decoration of the Grand Room by the one & only Lady Edwina Weldon, quintessential Fashion & Interior Designer of the Victorian era  ;)

With the lighting and the photography in mind and to create a more light reflective decor,  I have created white ceilings in the victorian kitchen and the grand room using cardboard covered with a white paper sheet and I have changed the flooring of the Grand Room with a black and white tiles embossed sheet, mostly inspired by the pictures I took for the Cast & Guest Stars.

The difference being that the decors for the Cast & Guest Stars were custom built to enhance the wonderful creations of our Playmofriends, and all the interior pictures of the Summer Garden Party will actually be taken in the victorian mansion itself, not a decor re-creating it and as always without any special effects.

Lady Edwina Weldon decorates the Grand Room, helped of course by the Staff of the Mansion - Part 1

Part 2 & Final Part of the Making Off to follow... ;)

The curtains for the conservatory part of the Grand Room and the Summer Pavillion are made in a crisp white Broderie Anglaise which should look nice in a summer setting with its light see through effect  ;)

Those interested in the architectural additions to my project such as the Grand Fountain, the Grand Room Fireplace and Columns can contact me for the details of my Friend Sue Cook who is a wonderful Miniaturist based in the UK  :)

Lady Edwina decorates the Grand Room of the Mansion and the Summer Pavillion with the help of the Staff of the Mansion - Part 2

Everything starts with a cup of tea in England and Lady Weldon was no exception to the tradition this morning as she started her very busy working her magic throughout the Victorian Mansion with a cup of her favorite tea blend  ;)...

We are catching up with the happy little world of No1 Regent St including the victorian kitchen which is also getting very busy with the feast to come  :chef:

End of the Making Of Summer Garden Party on Regent St

After a very busy day for Lady Edwina and the Staff of the Mansion, time has come for me to close the final chapter of this Making Of and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for following this project developing from a blank sheet of A3 paper and a few ideas nearly a year ago into a wonderful online Playmobil communities gathering through the magical creations of characters from our Playmofriends from around the world  :love:

I will soon open the first chapter of the Summer Garden Party on Regent St which will tell the story of an extraordinary day unfolding in 5 chapters :

A very good evening to you dear Friends  :wave:

I hope that you have not been worried by my silence as I was in France for two weeks on holidays and I am now finalizing the details of the "Arrival of the Illustrious Guests" which will arrive in style including the latest Old Timer Car only available in Germany at the moment, hence the delay...

I will catch up very soon with the second part of the second chapter including "The Arrival of the Illustrious Guests" and a "Royal Tea Party"  ;)

Have a lovely week-end  8-)

Dear Friends  :wave:

Being a Collector of the discontinued Victorian Theme, it is not everyday that I will be able to bring you a review of a new item, but I am delighted to confirm that I will soon receive the new Playmobil Oldtimer Car 6240 which I have ordered in Germany  :love:

I have now felt the same excitement since I purchased the Playmobil Oldtimer Karstadt Truck 4083 years ago.

Here is a picture of the Playmobil Oldtimer Car 6240 which I will review as soon as I will receive it :

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

I am back on Regent St after a holiday back home in France and above all after putting a final touch to the details of the Arrival of the Illustrious Guests  ;)

I real want the arrival of all the wonderful customized characters which you dear friends from Playmo Communities from around the world have created to be as special and unforgettable as can be as I cannot possibly thank you enough for contributing to this project in such a magnificent way  :love:

And today is a very special occasion on Regent St as we are welcoming a fantastic new addition to the discontinued Victorian theme :

Just like my previous quest for the perfect fountain for the Grand Gardens of Regent St, I have been searching high and low for an old fashioned ice cream machine and finally found it....in Texas  :love:

As the next chapter will be about the preparation of a Royal Tea Party with every imaginable sweet delights, here is a picture of Mrs Applepie and her Friends welcoming their new ice cream machine on Regent St !

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

As you know, the original decor of my diorama Summer Garden Party on Regent St was badly damaged following an unfortunate stockage next to to a stone wall and the humidity resulting of a wet winter and spring  :'(

These décors included the main st as well as the gardens.

Thanksfully, all my Playmo figures, accessories, plants, miniature foods and elevated terrace were stocked in a different room and are safe and well  :love:

It is therefore on a blank canvas that I am about to write the third chapter of this project which I invite you to follow the progress of my work through this Making Of in which I will regularly update you with the references and prices of the materials I will use.

With the enlargement of my Victorian Mansion, I must wait for the final dimension of the house itself to order what I call my "preparation board" upon which Regent St will bome back to life again. My original "preparation board" measured 1.5 meter x 2 meters and the new one will obviously be larger as I wish a larger main street and above all more space for the gardens which will include water features used mainly for their reflection effect in the pictures of this chapter supposed to be happening in the early evening. I will inform you of the final dimension of the "preparation board" as soon as it will be cut  ;)

So this is quite a jolly amount of work in the pipeline but I could not possibly be happier to be working on my favorite hobby again and share with you my work .

I have kept all the references of the materials I used for the original decor so this Making Of should be much faster than the original...

As you can see, no blank page dilmemma here as I know exactly what I want to achieve, just wish me tons of courage and lots and lots of imagination  :)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

I will start this new 2013 Making Of with a new found as far as the Regent St main road pavement is concerned  ;)

I have used until now a printed paper sheet with a pavement effect which was quite convincing but was obviously lacking of texture and I have just received a great plastic embossed sheet with a grey brick effect, originally for covering the outside walls of a dollshouse but which should be perfect for my textured pavement effect on the road in front of the Mansion :

(http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/6078/y1t2.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/31/y1t2.jpg/)

It comes as one plastic embossed sheet measuring 390mm x 260mm and costs 5.00 Euros per sheet.

I have used plastic embossed tiles effect sheets for my Victorian kitchen for years and love its reflection effect that should bring depth to the pictures when photographying figures or vehicles  ;)

Karim
Title: Re: The Making of : Summer Garden Party on Regent St
Post by: playmovictorian on September 22, 2013, 12:29:26
For the Mansion Gardens alleys, I am still going for a red brick printed sheet which under certain lighting as a nice terracotta effect to it  :)

(http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/4196/gvu3.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/34/gvu3.jpg/)

It comes in sheets measuring 299mm x 410mm and costs 5.00 Euros for 3 sheets.

As the box hedges, lawn, topiaries and water feature will add a lot of textures and perspective to the décors of the gardens a flat printed sheet is enough to add a touch of colour in the dominant shades of greens  ;)

I have always made a point of presenting a real background in the shape of oil painting reproduction. The methods of a painting reproduction have evolved immensely in recent years, the technic of high quality giclée on canvas is offering the quality and visual effect of a real oil painting at a fraction of the cost  ;)

The background used for the day times scènes of the chapters one and two and certainly the beginning of the 3rd chapter is :

"River Valley" by Marten Ryckaert

(http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/3896/9xzz.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/707/9xzz.jpg/)

It measures 355mm x 558mm and costs around 25.00 Euros.

I have worked with this reproduction for years and the colours are as vivid and stable as for day one  :)

If there is one material I would never consider doing without when creating the flooring of room whether it is a kitchen, a bathroom or even a lounge, it is the plastic embossed tiles sheet which comes in three colours options :

White & Pink

(http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/8210/y3dg.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/818/y3dg.jpg/)

White & Blue

White & Black

(http://img571.imageshack.us/img571/4243/rnc0.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/571/rnc0.jpg/)

The sheets are measuring 280mm x 415mm and the cost is about 5.90 Euros per sheet.

Those who know scènes of my victorian kitchen know the wonderful effect of this flooring both in real life and on pictures  :)

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

As far as the embossed plastic sheets with a tiles effect are concerned, the best website is surely the Dollshouse Emporium based in the UK and in English, of course :

http://www.dollshouse.com/dhe/dolls-houses-for-collectors.aspx

Go to their For Collectors section and select the "Flooring" category to check their embossed plastic sheets selection.

If you need any help, do ask me  ;)

I wish you all a great day !

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

This hobby is about improvising too when needed and I have greatly appreciated the tip of my Friend Lori who suggested a lighter pavement colour for my latest mini diorama Flowers amongst Flowers, and she is absolutely right !

The plastic embossed grey brick pavement sheet I have used for the first picture is creating a too strong contrast, but I haven not received my red brick printed sheets yet, so what do I do ?

Just go online and Google "dollshouse brick sheet" and scroll down the many on display in the images section. Once selected, copy and paste on a A4 sheet, enlarge if necessary to fit the A4 sheet and print on a color printer  ;)

For the new pavement of my mini diorama, I have used this copyright free picture :

(http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/1156/cwz8.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/546/cwz8.jpg/)

You will see the end result in the pictures I will take this morning and one should not make the difference between a purchased printed pavement sheet and an improvised one  ;)

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

A little secret that I will share with you is that there is another source of accessorizing the Playmobil Victorian theme than dollshouse accessories on a 1/12th scale  ;)

The Sylvanians are matching the scale of our little klickies and provide a wonderful alternative as far as accessories, furniture, buildings and even vehicles are concerned as illustrated in the following picture featuring a the car of Lady Daniele and Lord Martin St Giles created by our dearest Friend Daniela  :love:

Karim, thanks for the link to Sylvanian Families (I discovered they're called Calico Critters in my part of the world!) I was unfamiliar with them - but I'm sure next time I'm in my local toy store I'll probably see tons of them and wonder how I've never noticed them before! (Playmobil tunnel vision! :lol:)

A couple of questions about them - you mention 1/12 scale - I thought Playmobil was 1/24? The items aren't too big? Are klickies able to hold any off the accessories? Like cutlery, cups etc.  They have quite a few food options that I really like!
Title: Re: The Making of : Summer Garden Party on Regent St
Post by: playmovictorian on September 23, 2013, 19:45:28
Good evening dear Friends  :wave:

The general belief as far as the Playmobil figure is that it is made on a 1/24th scale when in fact it is made on a 1/225th scale  ;)

But when one studies the scale system of Playmobil, one soon realizes that the figures are on a 1/225th scale but most accessories are actually larger in size and some close to the 1/12th scale, most certainly in order to be better handled by children.

This is the reason why anyone thinking of accessorizing any Playmobil theme with a dollshouse item on a 1/12th scale must remember :

1/ never to purchase items of furniture which will be for too large for our Klickies

2/ never purchase personal items such as umbrella or by extension items of clothing

3/ always select the smaller item in a range ie the smaller plate from a dinner service range as only the smallest item will fit the scale and will look as perfectly Playmo compatible in a scene. The same rule applies to everything from vases, kitchen ustensiles, electric appliances such as lamps or chandelliers, to barrels, and so on. Not to forget items such as hedges or trees and even plants in pots of which one must select the smallest item in order to create the right Playmo compatible impression  ;)

4/ The decorative materials such as the flooring printed paper sheet or plastic embossed sheet, wall paper, rugs and so on are much easier to choose as most of them match the Playmo scale to almost perfection.

I invite those of you interested in accessorizing their scenes with dollshouse accessories on a 1/12th scale to look at some of my scenes and check how a chandellier, a fruit bowl, a pan or even a fire place can fit very well in the Playmobil 1900's world.

Finally, do not make the same mistake I did in early days by ordering dollshouse accessories on a 1/24th scale which are far too small and will go totally unnoticed in your scenes  :lol:

When in doubt about the ability of a specific item to be Playmo compatible or not for an item such as a fire place for example, my little tip to you would be to check the size of the item always provided in the online or catalogue description and cut a piece of paper to its dimension and put a Klicky next to it. I can guarantee that it will save you a lot of time and effort if not money  ;)

If any question, feel free to ask me and I will be very happy to help  :)

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

In order to illustrate my topic regarding the size / scale matching, I have selected a few examples for you.

The most important thing when shopping for a Playmo compatible dollshouse accessories on a 1/12th scale is to go for the size first and the look after. Otherwise you will end up with items you fell in love with but which will be totally out of proportions in your Playmobil environment  ;)

Example No 1 :

Victorian Fireplace No1   measuring 16Omm high x 108mm large x  43mm deep ( cost 19.70 Euros ) non electrical item.

(http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3654/n1cj.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/268/n1cj.jpg/)

A lovely fireplace but that would not even fit the ceiling of your Playmo house or will look like a real monument  :lol:


Victorian Fireplace No2   measuring 99 high x 11O large x 45mm deep ( cost 14.80 ) with a lighted fire effect and battery powered bulb.

(http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/7660/rot4.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/89/rot4.jpg/)

Playmocompatible  :)

Example No2 :

Street Lamp No1 measuring 241mm x 40mm ( cost 9.90 Euros ) eletrical wire operated

(http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/6454/5xqd.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/196/5xqd.jpg/)

Will look gigantic and totally out of proportions in your scènes !


Street Lamp No2 measuring 115mm x 35mm ( cost 5.50 Euros ) battery operated

(http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/3138/wbps.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/96/wbps.jpg/)

Playmocompatible  :)

So please remember to always check the size of the item before going for the purchase  ;)

Introducing the Electricity Fairy to your Playmobil House !

There are two ways to bring electricity to a dolls house and by extension the Playmobil house.

The first one is by using copper wires and soldering iron, a method which I have never embraced for its complication and the second composed of mini electrical wires and plugs which is the methos I have used for years  :)

The system starts from a transformator which must be compatible with the electric voltage of your country, for example for Europe ( excluding UK ), we will use the 230v Transformer for a maximum of 32 light bulbs of 12v each, which costs about 20.00 Euros :

(http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/6576/unma.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/21/unma.jpg/)

Then to a 12 lights socket in which you will plug all your electrical item such as lamps, chandelliers, street lamps, lighted fire baskets, which costs about 8.00 Euros :

(http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/4228/ksgj.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/109/ksgj.jpg/)

You will also be able to buy mini extension cables for the appliances which electric cord is too short to reach the 12 lights socket.

I cannot possibly better illustrate the electrical topic than inviting you to Watch a little movie I made years ago about the Electricity Fairy :

Return to Regent St !

Hello dear Friends  :wave:

I hope that you are all well as a new year begins and I would like to wish you once again a Happy & Healthy New Year 2014 !

After lovely holidays back home in South West of France, here I am back to Luxembourg with a suitcase filled with Playmobil figures, accessories and furniture as well as Dollshouse accessories on a 1/12th scale including the lighting, plants and not to forget a mountain of mini delights  ;)

I have spent this Sunday afternoon building the N°1 Regent St Mansion which features a double sized kitchen as well as an enlarged conservatory...

I invite you all to re-open the door to Regent St and the Mansion which will welcome all the tribulations of my happy little Victorians and Guest Stars  :)

Good evening dear Friends  :wave:

Now that this reminder of my previous works on the Summer Garden Party on Regent St project is done, time has come for me to kick start my "Return to Regent St 2014 diorama" which is the continuation of the original story of one extraordinary day in the life of my happy little Victorians and their Guests  :love: A story articulated around 5 main chapters :

Summer Garden Party on Regent St - a Victorian Tale

Chapter 1 : Early Morning to Noon   

Picking the fruits and vegetables in the vegetable gardens and the preparation and cooking of the feast in the kitchen. Decoration of the gardens and the Summer pavillion.

Chapter 2 : Noon to 5.00pm    

Preparation of the afternoon cakes and other sweet delights in the kitchen, arrival of the Guests and serving of high tea on the elevated terrace lawn including a Royal visit  ;)

Chapter 3 : 5.00pm to 8.00pm  

Setting up the stage for the play "The Three Musketeers" on the elevated terrace, sitting down of the Guests and "show time" involving the 3 Musketeers, Cardinal Richelieu, Queen Anne and Milady de Winter.

Chapter 4  : 8.00pm to 10.00pm

Dishing and serving of the sumptuous evening buffet in the summer pavillion with cocktails and piano music and dancing

Chapter 5  10.00pm to Midnight

Magical entrance and performance of Maria Malibran. The end  :)

Those who remember the project know that  I was able to complete the first two chapters of the tale, so I will start the third chapter as soon as the rebuilding and redecorating works of the outside grounds and Inside of the Mansion will be completed  8}

Just like I did for the original project, I will lay sheets of A3 paper in order to work out the space that my remodelled Mansion takes now that it is featuring a double sized Victorian kitchen and conservatory. There will of course be a place for the Summer Pavillion separated from the mansion by grand gardens featuring a central fountain, an elevated terrace and 4 water features in the shape of brick lined rectangular ponds. I will use the reflective properties of the water features to enhance the lights which will decorate the outside grounds as we may remember that the third chapter is set from 17.00 to 20.00 so the atmosphere will be different from that of the first two chapters...

Not only the gardens will be enlarged compared to the original project, but also the Regent St road which will be big enough to accommodate two vehicles circulating in opposite directions - something that I was not able to do with the first project - and the vegetable garden will move to the side of the Mansion by the Victorian kitchen.

I am very excited that everything is starting to take shape and I will very soon have my Playmo Angels getting at it in the shape of Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle for the outside Grounds and Mrs Applepie and her Friends for the Victorian kitchen.

I will photograph each step of the "Return to Regent St" project and will share with you the dimensions, origins and costs of all the materials I will be using  ;)

As I mentioned before, my intention is to spice up the three chapters to come with little intrigues, mysteries and funny situations set around the visit of famous celebrities of the Victorian times creating a less formal atmosphere than that of the previous two chapters...

Thank you so much for following this thread over the years as a new chapter is about to open  :love:

Karim :)

PS : I would like to thank all the original Customizers & Friends who created figures for scènes starting from the third chapter onwards, that all your wonderful créations will appear in the tale to come and that I cannot thank you enough for your patience and talent  :)

A very good morning to you  :wave:

I am truly delighted that though I am professionally extremely busy, I finally succeeded in putting the finishing touches to the lay out that will become my "Return to Regent St" diorama  :cloud9:

Just like for the previous decor, this lay out is made of A3 paper sheets which measures 1 meter large x 2.80 meters long !

My remodeled villa alone measures 3Ocms large x 1 meter long  :love:

And I must confess to something that only Karim could possibly do as when I unpack a box in which I kept the Summer Pavillion, I remembered that I had an extra floor to be added to my new mansion I completely forgot to add last Sunday  :-[ I will add it this afternnon and will take a few pictures accordingly...

Needless to say that thinking about the final lay out of the diorama was not as easy as it first sounded since my tales constantly evolve around a decor which must fit and enhance the scènes and even if a space measuring 1m x 2.80m seems large enough for a diorama, it takes some thinking to fit in an enlarged mansion, a summer pavillion, an elevated terrace, patios, grand gardens featuring a central fountain and 4 small square water features, a vegetable and orchard garden by the kitchen and of course, Regent St itself at the front  8}

Just like for the original and previous decor, I have been working on marrying straight lines and curves so that once finished and decorated, filled with plants and trees, the outside grounds of the "Return to Regent St" diorama become a delightful and fresh heaven filled with summer colours  :love:

I will take a few pictures of the lay out this afternoon so that you can have an idea of what my "Return to Regent St" diorama will look like  ;)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

As promised, here are the very first pictures of the drawing of my diorama "Return to Regent St" as well as the pictures of the N°1 Regent St Mansion with its added floor  :) !

The onsite drawing of my diorama will request a little imagination of course, and should be read from left to right starting with the base of what will be the Summer Pavillion then onto the elevated terrace which will be facing a fountain and 4 square water features, and finally the gates of the Villa which will be overlooking Regent St with a side vegetables and fruits garden  :love:

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I will start the list of the materials I will use on my "Return to Regent St" diorama with items I have already tried and tested successfully in the past on my previous diorama and which have become my staple products over the years. Once the drawing of the diorama is done, I always cut templates out of coloured wrapping tissue paper in order to highlight certain elements of the decor to come, such as a fountain, elevated terrace, patches of vegetable garden and so on and replace them with the original item as I go along and progress with the completion of the diorama.

I also use wrapping tissue paper as templates to cut of all elements of the decor such as grass, soil, brick and stone effect printed sheet that need to be cut in a tricky curvy shape. I just cut it following the original drawing, put it on the material I wish to use and simply cut it along...simple, but does save a lot of time and guarantee the right cut each time instead of wasting material  ;)

Coloured Wrapping Tissue Paper( available in a great number of colours )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/119916741b.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=119916741b.jpg)

Cost : 2.39 Euros for 25 sheets measuring 50cm x 75cm each

Coloured Wrapping Tissue Paper "in situ" on my previous diorama

Lay your Path with Bricks  ;) !

Brick pavement effect printed paper sheet to cover the alleys of the Gardens ( looks quite dark on the picture but of a nice warm terracotta colour effect in reality )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/507400751a.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=507400751a.jpg)

Cost : 5.25 Euros for a set of 3 sheets measuring 299mm x 410mm each. Quite a goood value for money. Easy to work with and the colour will pass the test of time and remain fresh even after a few years.

Same material used "In situ" on my previous diorama  :)...

Fake it up  ;) !

I may have mentioned this to you before but I do wish to personalize the outside of the mansion but still do not feel confident enough to individually custom paint all the small elements that make the outside of the mansion. My dear Friend Emma Jane is doing a fabulous job at it but she masters the technique to perfection which is not my case so I came up with the idea of a brick effect cover for some parts of the front wall of the mansion, as I believe it has not be done on a Playmobil mansion, yet. And as I was looking for suitable materials, I came accross this fantastic item which I will try and use to decorate certain parts of the outside of the mansion. Please do keep in mind that I will add climbing plants and flowers such as Ivy, Roses and Morning Glory which will be used to frame the wall like they do in real life and the little touches of brick effect paper should create an interesting effect on the overall mansion :

Self Adhesive Vinyl Brick Wall Effect Mat Wallpaper ( 72 styles of coverings to choose from )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/450521371e.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=450521371e.jpg)

Cost : 3.99 Euros for one sheet measuring 315mm x 225mm. Quite expensive but should save me a lot of time as far as decorating the outside of the mansion is concerned  ;)
 


I have also made a note that amongst the many styles of wall of floor coverings options, they also offer a great and original stained glass effect as well as a great wood panelling effect  ;)

Say it with Flowers  :)!

As my diorama is called "Summer Garden Party on Regent St", it is obvious that late spring and summer flowers and plants must set the tone and they most certainly did in my previous diorama  :love:

As they worked out beyond my expectations, I will use the same plants and flowers which are all available at the Dollshouse.com (DHE) Website in many varieties of climbing plants and flowers :

Climbing Plants & Flowers from the DHE online catalogue( Ivy, Roses, Morning Glory, Wysteria, Grapes, Clematis, etc )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/887593891z.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=887593891z.jpg)

Cost : 4.90 to 7.90 Euros each and measures 245mm long. This is quite expensive, especially when it comes to using so many on a  diorama like mine, but definitely worth every penny when considering the final result and effect !

Same material used "in situ" on my previous diorama

Did you say Topiary  ;) ?

I have learned over the years that a diorama, small or large created on a flat surface will only come to life if one adds vertical ornaments such as hedges, flower beds and trees which will create a visual interest.

Topiary is a form of art that involves clipping evergreen trees and plants such as the Box Tree which instantly add a symetrical design to a garden or the entrance of a house, for example.

The following designs are not only inexpensive but also very versatile and I have used many of them over the years.

Topiary Trees made of Polyresin ( available in many styles, flat back or full shape )

The Language of Flowers  ;) !

After the climbing plants and flowers, lets speak about the flower beds which are bringing so much life and colour to the little world of Regent St.

Available in every shape and form, miniature flowers are an enchanting world that never ceases to fascinate you once you have opened the magical door  :love:

I have used the same supplier for years, MyTinyWorld, for its truly amazing choice of accessories on a 1/12th scale, with a special mention to their wonderful range of flowers, beautifully crafted and which have stood the test of time as they look as beautiful and fresh today as they did when I first purchased them years ago.

Laying the grounds  ;)!

Ground covers such as grass for lawn areas or soil for orchard or vegetable plots add unity and a realistic effect to the outside grounds of a diorama and must be selected with care.

Just Print it  ;) !

As you may guess, there are hundreds if not thousands of dollshouse wallpapers to chose from, most of which are perfectly Playmocompatible  :)

And if you are on a tight budget or willing to decorate your room here and now, the free printable wallpapers designs are a great option  :love:

On the following website, Jennifersprintables.com, you will be spoiled for choice for wallpapers styles covering the following eras :

Victorian ( 1837 - 1901 )
Art Nouveau ( 1890 - 1920 )
The 1920's
The 1930's & 1940's
The 1950's
The 1960's & 1970's


As well as 10 wallpapers on the Christmas theme and even a section of flooring designs such as wood, stone or bricks

Dear Karim,

the colors of your grass and soil is so perfect!

I know, there are lots of self adhesive grass carpets at doll house shops, can you tell us, which one you are using for you grass and soil?

The colors are matching so realistic.

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I am truly over the moon to announce that I finally got my "preparation board" as I call it, yesterday afternoon  :yippee: :banana:

It measures 3 meters long x 1 meter large and my beautiful Mansion is standing proud on the paper drawing of the outside gardens including Regent St at the front, a large vegetable & fruit garden at the side of the kitchen, and grand gardens including a summer pavillion, 4 water features & a grand fountain  :love:

I had the board cut in two in order to facilitate transportation should I have to move it.

Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle cannot wait to start working their magic around Regent St of which I will photograph every step in this Making Of  ;)

Thank you so much for your patience !

Return to Regent St !

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

This is it ! I have finally completed the definite layout of my diorama  :love: !

My final idea came yesterday when I thought of adding a little botanical garden touch in the shape of a little exotic corner leading to a spectacular fountain with a an additional water feature in the middle of it lined with palm trees and ferns on its sides  ;)

The only thing that I have left for later will be the vegetable garden which will be enclosed by a brickwall and will feature vegetable beds, fruits beds such as strawberries and fruit trees with my signature fountain at the back...

So here we are and starting from the Summer Pavillion, we will have a large red brick patio in front of the Pavillion then a red brick alley leading on one side to the exotic garden and the other to the central round fountain and 4 square water features. Then the path will take you a half circle sitting area which will be romantic with lots of flowers in bloom and then to the elevated terrace and its red brick patio. You will then access the large conservatory red brick terrace where the cars and carriages will come and go and then onto a path which will run all the way in the front of the Mansion and will be paved in yellow bricks to add a little variety to the diorama. And finally into the enclosed vegetable & fruit garden which will feature yellow bricks alleys to match my yellow stone signature fountain. Regent St road will be "paved" with an embossed black brick sheet and the pedestrian sidewalk will be covered with a grey tones brick sheet.

Here are a few pictures I took this morning which will give you a better idea of what the layout will be, as described above  :) :

A matter of Templates !

Just like for my previous work, I will create colour coordinated templates made from silk wrapping paper which I will position over the diorama showing for example a future red brick path or a water feature and I will replace with the real material or item as I will go along  ;)

Here are the colored templates I will use on this diorama and what they will represent  :) :

Green for Grass & Lawn Area

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/507410dio1.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=507410dio1.jpg)

Terracotta for Red Brick Alley

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/691344dio2.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=691344dio2.jpg)

Blue for Fountain or Water feature

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/483062dio3.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=483062dio3.jpg)

Black for the Regent St road pavement

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/453528dio4.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=453528dio4.jpg)

Yellow for the Yellow Brick Alley

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/681977dio5.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=681977dio5.jpg)


Silk wrapping paper is a rather cheap inexpensive material which costs 1.13 Euros for 6 sheets measuring each 50 x 75 cm.

It not only provides an excellent colour coordinated visual of the diorama to come but most importantly can be cut to exact measurements of a landscape feature no matter how intricate it is. This is one of the best tips I can share with you as one just has to apply a piece of silk wrapping paper on top of the desired diorama layout area and draw on it a template using a fine pencil. All you will then have to do will be positioning the cut silk wrapping paper template on the material such as grass, soil or brick sheet and cut out the required piece without suffering any wastage of material  ;)

Be Creative !

Just like in real life, creating a diorama does not always go according to plans and one must learn to compromise and adapt to certain situations  ;)

A recent example was trying to purchase the soil effect sheet from my usual supplier and find out that they ran out of it...

I have used this material for years and know that it does look great "in situ", but it was not available to purchase so I worked out a plan B with a little dare as I simply went for a dollhouse dark brown colored carpet which I received this morning and does look the part  :love: :


(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/990242dio6.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=990242dio6.jpg)


It is self adhesive so does come in very handy to cut and just put in situ for a future "flower bed".

It costs 2.64 Euros for one sheet measuring 50cm x 35cm.

Laying the Brick Paths !

I have used the same red brick printed sheet to cover the alleys around Regent St as it takes what looks rather red on the picture becomes a warm tone terracotta colour which makes a great contrast with the surrounding lawns or small box like dark green hedges  :) :

Red Brick Path ( covering all paths & patios excluding the path running in front of the Mansion and the paths around the vegetable & fruit garden )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/785385dio7.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=785385dio7.jpg)

Very versatile, it costs 5.25 Euros for three sheets measuring a 40cm x 30cm each

Here are the additional brick printed or embossed sheets which will be used on this diorama  ;) :

Grey Brick Path ( Pedestrian walk by Regent St Road )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/850198dio8.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=850198dio8.jpg)

It costs 0.99 Euros per sheet and measures 30cm x 21cm

Yellow Brick Path ( Path running in front of the Mansion and paths around the vegetable & fruit garden )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/441027dio9.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=441027dio9.jpg)

It costs 1.80 Euros per sheet and measures 43cm x 30cm

Black Brick / Pavement Road ( covering the surface of Regent St Road )

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/644253dio10.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=644253dio10.jpg)

Each plastic embossed sheet costs 4.50 Euros and measures 39cm x 26cm for a great pavement effect !

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

As I am taking you along with on my journey of creating this diorama, I would like to share with you my two crushes and ideas I had recently for the hedge & brick posts that will run in front of the Mansion.

I intially thought of putting street lights on top of the brick posts but they will be too high and out of proportion with our Klickies so I invite you to discover the style I want to give to the portion of the wall which will run in front of the fruit & vegetable garden featuring on Apple Tree in the middle and a luscious pot of cascading strawberries on top of the post. This will set the mood for the fruit & vegetable garden behind and works quite well together  ;) :

And after using a straight hedge for years, I wanted to introduce a little sophistication with a green hedge topped with a black wrought iron style railing framed by brick posts which will have cascading geraniums on top  ;) :

(http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/130398dio12.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=130398dio12.jpg)

All about Scenery !

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

Ever since I worked on my first model railway on a HO scale when I was a kid, I have always had a passion for creating décors such as miniature mountains, fields, villages, waterfalls and so on.

Working on a scale which can match the size of our Klickies ( 7.5cm or 3 inches ) is the same approach only bigger of course.

The most important thing is to always keep in mind that any item you will consider for the your decor whether Inside or outside will have to not only match the size of a 7.5cm figure but most importantly blend well with the other accessories.

I cannot stress out enough that as far as Playmocompatibility goes, one may only consider the 1/12th scale which is the most common sclae for dollshouse items and means that one inch in miniature size equal to 12 inches in real life size. Never go for other scales such as the 1/24th which will be too small or the Playscale size or 1/6th which will be too big ( Barbie figures scale ). But considering the 1/12th scale is only the beginning as not all items of this scale wil be Playmocompatible.

A little tip when researching online for a certain item is to look for "miniatures on a 1/12th scale" and remember that "dollhouse" in the USA and beyond and "dollshouse" in the UK so look accordingly since EBay.co.uk will not come up with as many results if you put dollhouse in the keyword search instead of "dollshouse".

I will share with you in this topic a few tricks and ideas I have tried and tested over the years when it comes to creating an outside decor which will be Playmocompatible  ;) :

Fountains

Mural Fountain with a Lion

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/748805dio1.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=748805dio1.jpg)

Costs approximately 2.00 Euros and measures 6cm high

Freestanding Fountain with a Lion ( my signature fountain present in all my previous dioramas )

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/309286dio2.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=309286dio2.jpg)

Costs approximately 15.00 Euros and measures 12 cm high

Large Freestanding Fountain with a Lion ( like the one that will feature in the background of my exotic garden )

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/648331dio3.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=648331dio3.jpg)

Cost approximately 20.00 Euros and measures 14 cm high

A Matter of Trees !

Those who have followed this thread since the beginning may remember that I customized Playmobil trees with model tuft and tiny paper flowers which turned out to be quite nice but a Mansion that big & tall, I really needed substantial trees measuring at least 25cm up to 35cm. Needless to say that I have hunted high and low for weeks and could not find anything but trees under 20cm high or the custom made trees by specialized miniaturist which can cost anything between 90 and 200 Euros ! Until I came accross this French website called Diorama.fr which specializes in miniature décors for all kind of model projects including architect projects and which features the only large trees available on the net at a reasonable price and other interesting items such as vine rows or lavender rows :

Birch Tree

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/409565dio4.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=409565dio4.jpg)

Costs 18.00 Euros and measures 35 cm high

Oak Tree

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/541573dio5.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=541573dio5.jpg)

Costs 23.30 Euros and measures 30 cm high

Beech Tree

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/120421dio6.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=120421dio6.jpg)

Costs 18.80 Euros and measures 27 cm high

Italian Cypress

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/344133dio7.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=344133dio7.jpg)

Costs 14.40 Euros for a pair which measures 18 cm high each

Smaller decorative trees which could possibly look good isolated on a lawn or in the foreground of a larger tree maybe :

Olive Tree

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/510915dio10.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=510915dio10.jpg)

Costs 12.10 Euros and measures 15 cm high

Mimosa Tree

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/330233dio11.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=330233dio11.jpg)

Costs 12.00 Euros and measures 14 cm high

Lavender Rows

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/646839dio8.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=646839dio8.jpg)

Costs 15.00 Euros for 3 pièces which measure 4 cm high each

Vine Rows

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/222679dio9.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=222679dio9.jpg)

Costs 29.20 for 3 pièces which measure 4 cm high each

A Matter of Hedges !

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/434958dio12.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=434958dio12.jpg)

Hedge materials have evolved considerably since I first used them and are now made of a soft foam base coated with different option of "foliage" mix which can be permanently bendable to one's use.

Lush Green Hedge

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/774477dio13.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=774477dio13.jpg)

Costs 11.50 Euro each and measures 4 cm high x 30 cm long

Spring Green Hedge ( my option for the hedge running in front of the Mansion onto Regent St )

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/538061dio14.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=538061dio14.jpg)

Costs 11.50 Euro each and measures 4 cm high x 30 cm long

And finally one of my all time favorite product which works beautifully for creating a box like hedge effect around the lawn areas for a perfect manicured English garden effect and is perfectly flexible at leisure  ;) :

Small Box Hedge

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/906287dio15.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=906287dio15.jpg)

Costs 1.25 Euros and measures 1 cm high x 30 cm long

Good evening dear Friends  :wave:

Thank you so much for following this Making Of in which I am taking you along a step by step process of creating a diorama.

As you could see, templates are not only useful for cutting the future materials to the exact measurements no matter how intricate the drawing is whithout any waste but also when used in coordinated colours they really help a flat drawing to take form and shape  ;)

I love the soil and the grass which are both exactly right - what are they?

Good morning Raven :wave:

Thank you for your comment !

If you go a little up this thread, you will find references about these two items  ;)

For the anecdote, the "soil" effect sheet is in fact a dark bown self adhesive carpet since my supplier ran out of the original item and it works ou beyond my expectations, so always go for plan B  :)

Quote from: Karim, re the soil and grass
If you go a little up this thread, you will find references about these two items

Thank you.  I have been following this thread, but I obviously I didn't remember that post!

No way will I ever have your skills - but I'd like a bit of texture for some things, and without any model shops nearby, my only option is to purchase online, and I'm never sure what would be best - so I'm very grateful for help!

Dear Karim,

it´s wonderful to watch the flowers growing and Regent Street beeing rebuild.

Thank you so much dearest Daniela  :wave:

Not only this is almost a miracle that I am able to take on such a subtantial project in terms of space, time and budget but it is also such a delight that I am bringing Regent St to life at the same time than our part of Europe is enjoying one the loveliest Springtime on records with blooms & blossoms everywhere which are such an inspiration for me  :cloud9:

I am trying to make a little addition a day to my diorama which is starting to take shape even if some things are not going to plan and I often to work out a plan be such as this dark Brown carpet which turned out to be a great "soil"  ;)

The vegetation added to the diorama really brings a life of its own and I am so busy building it that I often only realized aftewards the result when posting the pictures  8}

Needless to say that Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle will need a Holiday after such hard work  :lol:

Your Friend Karim :)

There's a modern 'city life' set that has the pegs too (set 4288).

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I hope that you are all well and enjoying this glorious Springtime we are experiencing this year  :love:

Now that Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle have nearly completed their works around the Vegetable & Fruit Garden - the 4th square will welcome an old fashion washing line showing the finest tea towels and linen of our beloved Head Cook Mrs Applepie & her Team since this is the garden adjacent to the Victorian kitchen, as well as a strawberries bed ready for picking and a few aromatic herbs here and there with the cutest signs you have ever seen .

The next step wich should be in a few days hopefully, will be finalising the works on Regent St itself and its pedestrian sidewalk in particular with cascading plants to ornate the top of the bring pillars and tiny flowers which will grace the base of each brick pillar as I wish to give to recreate the feel of a botanical garden all around the outside grounds, including Regent St with those delicate little touches...

Then we will move to the grand gardens which will include the gate entrance to the N°1 Regent St Mansion, multiple alleys dressed in red brick which will contrast well with the greenery surrounding with typically English lawns and all throughout the gardens a feel of visiting a botanical garden with splashes of colours and a variety of shapes of flowers, plants, bushes and ornemental trees.

I have really enjoyed using Florist foam which will be perfect to create a perspective of scenery in a decor which is after all perfectly flat entirely creating from a blank paper page.

The main areas of the grand gardens will be the Summer Pavillion which will be decorated with climbing flowers such as purple colored roses and morning glories and the path leading to it lined with Orange trees in white planters, a romantic half circle hideaway with a bench framed by stone Cherubs and roses, of course, the elevated terrace for the evening show and the work I am really looking forward to start will be the water garden with a large brick lined pond leading to a grand fountain and framed by exotic plants and flowers including the ferns which are looking great.

Simultaneously, I will slowly introduce lights to the scenery in the shape of great LED street lights on Regent St and classic Dollhouse 12V lights around the gardens and will take you through the entire process thanks to the introduction of a new character who will be the "Electricity Fairy" of this project.

When completed, I will be beyond thrilled to start working on the victorian kitchen which you may remember has doubled in size and in which Mrs Applepie, the Head Cook and her two Kitchen Aids will work their magic and I promise you something truly special with a great level of détails  ;)

Once again, thank you for following the Return to Regent St project  :)

And I invite those of you interested in creating a diorama with Playmocompatible accessories which will match all Playmo themes, or maybe just intrigued of what this Dollhouse miniatures world is about, to make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee and browse 2 online shops featuring hundreds if not thousands of miniature accessories, starting from the silver teaset which has been a feature of my victorian tales from day one and matches perfectly the Victorian theme  :love:

These UK based sellers will ship anywhere in the world at a reasonable shipping cost available on simple request.

So if you are ready to jump in the wonderful world of miniature accessories, here are the links to 2 online dollhouse miniature shops with an entire collection which can be accessed through the "see other items" option  ;) :

That pond and fountain sound magical! Can't wait to see the result...

I'm especially looking forward to the appearance of the Electricity Fairy  ;D  I'm very curious to see how you will go about that, because I've spent ages looking for the right lighting and it hasn't worked so far.

And since I've already finished my morning coffee, I will start on some breakfast while browsing through the sites you suggested. Thank you so much for all these inspiring ideas! I might need to start playing the lottery though  ;D

Dear Karim, if you search ebay.de, you find 3 auctions with parts of the set.

 http://www.ebay.de/sch/i.html?_trksid=p3984.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xplaymobil+5407&_nkw=playmobil+5407&_sacat=0&_from=R40

All three together are not really cheap, and the standee is missing (I shall have a spare one), but if you want them, let me know and I can buy them for you.

Did you say Printies ?

As the world of miniatures is about re-creating real life décors and scènes, contemporary or from the past, at a smaller scale.

And I have learned over the years that a beautiful miniature scene is all about realistic détails introduced through carefully chosen accessories.

We have seen earlier in this thread that when it comes to wallpaper and flooring, the 1/12th scale is perfectly Playmocompatible and matches our scènes, whatever the chosen period to perfection and I provided with ideas of a selection of free printable wallpapers and floorings, which can be printed whenever you need them and add instant atmosphere to your scènes.

The same principle applies to items such as gift boxes, wall artwork and paintings, stained glass panels, shop signs, food signs and labels, decorative tiles, book covers and so on, which are all called "printies" and best of all are free !

Anyone who has tried to accessorize a scene with a printed artwork such as a real life painting or poster found for example through a Google search, knows how difficult it is to shrink the original picture so that it can fit a Playmobil scene or by extension a Miniature scene.

The great advantage of printies beyond the fact that they are all available online and free to print whenever you need them is that they are al already created to perfectly match the 1/12th scale !

Those of you who have seen the mini labels and signs showing on items around my victorian kitchen such as labels on jars & bottles, miniature magazines & newspapers, and even fruit labels on wooden crates, already know how realistic these printies are and how well the accessorize a scene, whether Victorian or not.

I will provide you this afternoon with a complete range of free "printies" to accessorize your own scènes  ;)

In the meantime, have a great day !

Karim

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I must say that I am truly delighted to have finally reached the stage in which I am introducing the Electricity Fairy to this project as lighting is in my humble view, the real "cherry on the cake" of any miniature project since it purely and simply bring it into life  :love:

Until a few years ago, there were 2 kinds of different dollhouse lighting methods :

1 / The copper wiring which involves an intricate network of copper wires joined together using a soldering iron resulting in an almost invisible wiring system leaving no bumps behind surfaces such as wallpapers or presence of wires in the miniature decor. The complexity of this system lead me to choose an easier lighting option which can be done and undone quite easily...

2 / It starts with a 12V power adaptor which can light up to 32 miniature light bulbs ( which is sufficient for a project like mine ) which is connected to a multiple lights socket strip and as many extensions as you which provided that you do not exceed the maximum number of light bulbs allowed, ie 32 for this example.  When in place, the system just as easily as when you use an electrical cable extension in one of the rooms of your own home in real life. One must, of course try and dissimulate the cables and switches either on the ceiling or behind certain elements of the decor. You have seen in the above pictures our little Friend Archibald taking you you from the main eletrical adaptor to the lighting of the lights standing above the kitchen entrance of the Victorian Mansion and Archie will continue to do so with all the other lighting equipment featuring on this project  ;)

12 V AC Power Adaptor ( for up to 32 miniature light bulbs ) @ around 13.00 GB pounds

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/597254bat1.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=597254bat1.jpg)

12 miniature lights sockets strip @ around 10 GB pounds

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/824534bat2.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=824534bat2.jpg)

I said "until a few years ago" since I discovered when working on my mini diorama "Autumn Deliveries in Paris" that the LED battery operated lighting Equipment has come a long way from being bulky with often out of proportion bases to offer delicate and perfectly Playmocompatible options. You may remember that until early January, my entire miniature collection - including the lighting Equipment was still at my home in France - and I nevertheless wanted a street lamp to feature on "Autumn Deliveries in Paris" and my presentation of "Sherlock Holmes & Dr Watson". And the LED battery operated street light worked so well that I chose it again for lighting up the sidewalk along Regent St.

LED Battery operated Street Light @ around 7.99 GB pound each

Wonderful! Its all looking fantastic and Spring like.
What's the brand name for the street light, do you know? I need to look that up and see if I can get it in the US. Its a great style that could be used from the 1700s forward or possibly a little earlierr than that even.

Thank you so very much dear Tim  :wave:

You cannot possibly imagine how happy I am to see a comment from you on this thread since you were amongst the first one to encourage it all the way through and creating wonderful custom characters which will re-appear on the set in a very near future  :cloud9:

Karim

PS : I checked EBAY.com ( USA ) for a similar street light but could find it so here is the link of a UK Seller offering the same exact street light and who may be able and happy to send it to the US or give you further information on it :

What a delicious cherry you gave us! Those lights are so pretty. I love the big lanterns. In the old center of my town we have very similar.

I love the part where he puts the plug in.

I definitely need some spare time to carefully go through all of the tips and tricks on lighting, and then start experimenting myself. I'm in awe!

Thanks so luch for sharing all this information  :)

I really love the white tiles you put on the floor. Those puple roses look very romanticon the porch. You (and your little helpers) are doing a great job.

The scale on that floor tile and the brick both work quite nicely. Looking forward to the future developments

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I am over the moon to announce the arrival of the overseas parcel with some of the major architectural & vegetal elements of the grand gardens including the monumental fountain arrived yesterday and it really was worth the wait  :)

I worked yesterday evening but could not resist putting in situ these elements of the decor to come up to 02.00 am and I must say that the result will be spectacular  :love:

So I invite you all to stay tuned and follow the next works of Monsieur Firmin, Miss Periwinkle & Archibald who will very soon work their magic around the grand gardens of N°1 Regent St  ;)

WoW!
I admire that you are so consistent! I think this is the third time since I've known you, that you have to re-built Regent St. and every time you do it you add new and better stuff!
I'ts amazing!
Looking forwards to the botanical gardens. Will there be a conservatory??  :crossed: :crossed: :crossed: :crossed: :crossed: :crossed:

The koi pond and elephant pots are great, as is the nifty fountain. Are the fountain and pond actual water or plastic?

Thank you so much dear Friends  :wave:

The transparent liquid present in the pond and the fountain is called Scénic Water which is a often used in miniature projects such as model railway décors to recreate a lake, a river or even a waterfall. When it solidified, it becomes entirely transparent and imitâtes water to perfection  ;)

Lovely lawn and plants!

My knowledge of things small and plastic begins and ends with Playmobil, so it's very enlightening to see the beautiful miniatures available for the dollhouse/railway hobbyists. (Which of course look so lovely with the playmo!)

Since the Making of this diorama is only the beginning as I will be developing the last 3 chapters of the story upon complétion of the décors both inside & out, all that time & effort spent now will be rewarded later on with scènes filled with picturesque little détails  :love:

Thank you so much for following this Making of  :)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

I am beyond happy to see that dream of mine becoming a reality from a blank sheet of paper turning into a heavenly garden, day after day, through the hard work of Monsieur Firmin, Miss Periwinkle & Archibald  :love:

When I had the 3 meters long x 1 meter large wood board cut earlier this year and although I had ideas about how to shape the Grand Gardens of N°1 Regent St, I would never have guessed I would have so much fun bringing them to life and when the brick pavement finally linked the Grand Gardens to the Mansion yesterday afternoon, I thought " here we are dear Friends, Regent St is once again a reality"  :cloud9: !

From the following set of pictures, you will see a few shots of the Mansion viewed from the gardens which are exactly as I imagined them months ago since a Great Mansion called for Grand Gardens. Gardens which I was not only to bring to life from a flat surface but also create visual interest by introducing shapes & colours to define such areas as the Garden Pavillion & its Summer Patio, the exotic Garden with its oriental flavour, the "romantic love bench" and the elevated terrace.

Beyond the numerous plants & materials used to create these scènes, I must say that the biggest surprize came from these terracotta low brick walls which I originally selected for the entrance of the exotic garden and which are now featured in different areas of the gardens where they not only link the different areas together but also create a bridge like feel though the surface is...as flat as a blank sheet of paper  :lol:

Once the gardens will be completed, I will start introducing the next characters to bring this time the inside of the Great Mansion to life starting with the new double sized Victorian kitchen  ;)

Thank you so much for following this Making of !

I love the Hydrangea bushes, which are one of my favorite flowers.  :love:

A must have for me, but when I found them, I nearly fainted.

Karim, your garden is not only a treasure of heart and a treasure to see, it´s also ...  ;)

Nevertheless, it´s unpayable to get an admirable gift like this, you give to us.

I enjoy every second my eyes and heart go walking through it..

Every time I look I think it's impossible to make it lovelier than it is, but you still do. What an amazing project you're sharing with us. Thank you!

I also love the Hydrangea. In my garden they look just like yours (pink). But the rest can't be compared to your garden of Eden.

A very good morning to all Playmofriends  :wave:

Today is a very special day for me as I have nearly completed the works on the Grand Botanical Gardens of the Mansion with the help of Monsieur Firmin, Miss Periwinkle & Archibald and because I will introduce 2 additional characters to this diorama  :love:

The first one is a new character to the story called Mimi the Flower Lady which will have her flower stand by the entrance of the Mansion's main gates and the second one is already well known by most of you who have been following my little victorian tales since he has been a regular fixture since day one, our little Friend James the Gate Porter of N°1 Regent St !

And for those who do not know James yet, here is a little memento from his always cheerful presence in my previous stories  ;)

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

Those who are collecting a retired theme like myself are often facing the challenge of reinventing it, which is what I have done over the years using Dollhouse accessories on a 1/12th scale and I know how frustrating it can be for most of you not to see more Playmobil accessories in my dioramas & scènes and I would like to thank the Playmo Purists for still following my work  :)

The fact is that I haven't been purchasing a brand new Playmobil item for years since I am only collecting items and references from the retired Vitorian theme and accessorize it with Playmo compatible items...

But that was until today which was a real eye opener in the shape of a post from my Friend Whisper on the TJ Forum who was presenting her new buys, amongst those the wonderful Playmobil Princess Fairytale Birthday Box N° 5359 and I must say that I fell in love with it since it will provide me with the perfect background for pictures introducing the Ladies of N°1 Regent St, both from the Summer Garden Party on Regent St tale and the new Return to Regent St one  :love: :

(http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/678716princess.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=678716princess.jpg)

During the course of August I will introduce the latest sublime Playmo custom figures each in their individual matching decor as I have done in the past and I will also reintroduce all the marvellous custom figures created by my Friends for the original project just as they should be  :love:

I understand that the making of the Return to Regent St project is taking longer than you might have expected it to take, but you may bear in mind that I am running a hotel & 2 restaurants around the clock so I am progressing as fast as I can since this work is a labour of love for me with much thought given into it and an amount of online resaerching which is quite considerable.

I will most definitely resume and put the finishing touches to the outside decor in the weeks to come and September will see the start of the decorating of the Inside of the Mansion with thenew victorian kitchen being presented to the world !

Once again, Thank You so much for following this project !

Karim :)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

Just a quick note to tell you that I am placing the final ordering for the elements of the décors which will be used as a background to present the custom figures of the Burglar Cat Woman, Oscar Wilde & his Friend Bosie as as famous Music Composers Johannes Strauss & Piotr Illitch Tchaïkowski which I will present next  :)

I needed to take a little well deserved break to the magical city of Bernkastel Kues, but I am back now with lots of ideas and a few more customs up my sleeve including a few addtional custom figures and even custom vehicles which will delight the amateurs, so please do stay tuned  ;)

Good evening dear Friends  :wave:

As I am working on the final touches before the presentation of the marvellous custom figures created by Daniela for the character of Oscar Wilde & his Friend Bosie, Piotr Ilitch Tchaïkovski and Johannes Strauss ( inspired by the custom of our Friend Erwinius ) as well as the wonderful Cat Burglar Lady created by our Friend Playmalines, I would like to share with you a few pictures of the latest vehicle to being created for the "Return to Regent St" and what a vehicle is this as I am truly delighted to introduce another incredible custom from our Friend Playmoleo which is in the making :

The N°1 Regent St Rolls Royce 1910 Limousine !

This car is similar to the car used by the Dowager Violet Grantham in Downton Abbey and since the Grand Lady will be visiting Regent St, I thought that this amazing car was exactly what such a Great Mansion would need to transport its illustrious Guests around  :lol:

Please stay tuned for more updates soon  ;)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

I thank you so very much to follow this project even since I was not much around in the past few weeks, but you all know by now that I run a busy hotel and equally busy 2 restaurants with summer being a very demanding period for me and my staff, only allowing me 2 days off in July during which I took the opportunity of visiting the beautiful village of Bernkastel Kues in Germany.

August is still busy allowing me one day off the day before yesterday during which I did the "A Matter of Perspective - Part One" photoshoot, and then my second and only day off of the month will be Saturday, 23rd 2014 when I will be attending the LuxPlaymoDays exhibition in Clemency  :love:

Needless to say that knowing the work that still has to be done on the "Return to Regent St" project, it is quite a dilemma for me as I simply cannot cut corner and rush into things for this project, the same way that I could not scamp in any possible way my previous project or I would simply feel like I am betraying your expectations and my own standards...

So, even if it involves a great time management, I am trying my best at making some improvements during my lunch breaks as often as possible in order to keep the project moving forward, and judging by today, it seems to work rather well  8}

A Matter of Perpective is as much a way to show the Grand Mansion and its Gardens from different angles while completing the final little touches to the outside decor, as for me to get a better feel of what photographing scènes around the property will be like...

Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle are about to start decorating the terraces of the Mansion overlooking the Grand Gardens, adding a vegetal & floral feel to them which, just like they did on the outside groundfloor of the property softening the brickwork aspect with lush climbing plants & flowers.

There will be quite a few scènes shot on these terraces and I wish to provide a constant reminder of a Summer feel throughout the property both inside & out.

Once again, a huge THANK YOU for following the labour of love which represents the "Return to Regent St" project  :)

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

A little anecdote and smile that I would like to share with you is the music I am listening to when I am doing a photoshoot which are Waltzes from Johannes Strauss ! Those with a musical ear have certainly recognized his famous Waltzes in each of my most recent videos since the Maestro composed more than a hundred of them, so I am afraid that you are in for a long run listening to Viennese Waltzes & Polkas  :lol: :

Waltzes & Polkas from Johannes Strauss

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2BWl6_wp9g (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2BWl6_wp9g)

The famous Viennese Composer will soon be presented to you in his own custom made decor and will of course, be directing the musical interludes at N°1 Regent St  just like the Maestro & his orchestra entertained high society at the opening of the Savoy Hotel in London  ;)

Oh my  :o  :o   :o

The flowers on the house look magical!!!
This just keeps getting better and better. Here I was thinking the brickwork on the house was the final touch  :)

I am in love with the garden gnomes and shrubberies  :love:
And you haven't even started on the furniture yet, which is my favourite part  ;D

I'm thinking, if I had a display like that, I would never want to tear it down again. Ever.

 :(o):  The overview pictures are breathtaking  :)

Tons of questions come to mind!

Will you do something flowery for the window sills of the roof windows too?
Do I spot a vegetable garden in the back to the side of the house?
Have you been planning all of these details beforehand, or do you try things out on the spot?

By the way, I really like your use of palm trees, peach trees and strawberry plants mixed with regular flowers.

Thank you so very much dear Friend  :wave:

I will have to see for the attic windows but may consider somes flowers there...

Yes, there is a great Fruit & Vegetable Garden of which I am especially proud of and which will be the place for a little surprize to come soon  ;)

The exterior grounds of N°1 Regent St are nearly completed with only small box hedges to be put all around the lawns areas, pink roses to be put on the conservatory side leading to the gardens, a green arch with climbing roses leading to the side of the mansion, and a couple more lights to be put on the terrace opening to the elevated tearrce wich will turn into a stage for the evening show  8}

I am glad to confirm that even if it took longer than expected to achieve - and achieving is already a little miracle in itself when one knows that I run a hotel and 2 restaurants around the clock - but I am very pleased with the results !

Apart from a little last minute inspiration here and there, everything was carefully planned from the very moment I first draw the design of the outside grounds on sheets of A3 paper and I always stick & come back to my original plan. This is my way of doing things in life and as no matter how long it takes, I always try to stay on my tracks in order to achieve something.

As I explained before, being a perfectionist involves taking considerably more time to achieve a scene when someone else would be would just as happy to add a few touches of greenery here & there or even jump into starting the Victorian kitchen which I am so impatient to do while leaving the outside decor between "brackets" until further notice. I am trying to have a method and a guide line throughout this entire project and will continue to do so until it is completed  :)

What you see in my scènes is often the result of endless online researches until I find the right accessory which will add that poetic & charming old world touch & atmosphere that I like to give to my little victorian tales  :love:

And judging by the now 100 pages of this thread and more than 28 000 views so far, it really is worth the effort  :love:

The episode in which Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle who were about to put the finishing touches around the Fruit & Vegetable garden realized that they had somehow "overlooked" the decoration of the walls of this side of the Mansion  :-[

So needless to say that they tackled the matter as a priority  :lol:

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I am truly delighted to share with you that now that the outside decor of the "Return to Regent St" is nearly completed, I had great fun photographing the following little episode just like I would do for a photo story of one of my tales  :love:

It goes without saying that when I took pictures showing the progress of "my" work around N°1 Regent St, I did not always have the time to fiddle about in a photographic point of you with results which sometimes could be just ok on such a large scale project  8}

But now that I will soon reach the decorating of the inside of the property, and most importantly now that a busy summer at the hotel is soon behind me, I will be having my usual 2 days off every week from September onwards and will present each episode of this Making Of as a little photo story in itself  :)

I hope that you will all enjoy the arrival of Abigail, the Washing Lady of N°1 Regent St which will complement a set purchased at the 2014 LuxPlaymoDAys mixed with a Sylvanian Washing Set  ;)

Great to see the washing getting professionally done, and the beekeeper is a wonderful addition. Did you notice in the photos of the Victorian Market diorama by Elise at Speyer, the honey seller with basket bee hives? She converted the clothes hamper basket to bee hives very successfully. There are photos in my Germany trip thread if you haven't noticed that before.

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

After a few little distractions from the main project, time has come to get back to work for Monsieur Firmin & Miss Periwinkle will be putting the final little touches around the Grand Gardens of N°1 Regent St before leaving the center stage in favor of Mrs Applepie, Miss Bridget & Adelaide, Young Peter & Rupert the Cat who are on their way to the Mansion  ;)

Here are a few aerial view pictures taken this afternoon to summarize the work that has been achieved so far by our talented Gardeners extraordinaire around Regent St :

I can't take my eyes off that vegetable garden  :)  I particularly liked the picture with the cats reading the sign that told them to whipe their paws. And the guy giving the fence a new lick of paint.
Stunning, absolutely marvellous...

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

With the arrival of Edwina Wedon, a new chapter of this Making of starts with the interior decorating of the Mansion.

I will start with the victorian kitchen which I want to be as bright as possible using materials which proved satisfactory in my previous project in the shape of a bue & white mural tiles in the "Delft" Dutch style on the top with a white painted wooden molding in the middle and a blue & white striped wallpaper at the bottom. On the floor, a plastic embossed sheet with a white & blue tiles offering a great refkectivity to light.

In this large remodeled mansion; I first and foremost wanted an enlarged kitchen surface and the new kitchen is nearly twice as large as the original. The same applies to the Great / Conservatory Room which has doubled in space.

Before even starting with the decorating détails, I will first focus on the visual appeal of this room and its lay out according to the pictures I will take as if I was staging a theatrical decor highlighting certain elements of the decor above others.

A little bonus of this remodeling is that the empty space originally occupied by the staircase has inspired me a faux 1900 style stained glass decor which will be lighted from above creating a significant source of lighting above the cooking area which I want to be positioned in the middle of what will become a very busy kitchen.

The remodeling also doubled the number of windows from 2 to 4 and which, just like in real life occupy a lot of useful space and which will be cut down to 2 windows freeing a useful space for a opened fireplace and some furniture for example.

The kitchen layout must include the cooking area ( in the centre ), food preparation area, sink, firepalce, storage, dining area with a large table and chairs, and if possible a small "cellar" area with barrel & wine bottles as well as a storage for food. I also want a system of mural service bells in the "Downton Abbey" style. So all in one a little challenge which I will try to face and overcome.

With a style as fresh as blue & white inspired by the "Gustavian" style, I owe to bring little touches of colour through objects and prints evocative of the 1900 era, Summertime and which will illustrate food delights in all shapes & forms.

So I will invite you in the weeks to come to follow this Making of the victorian kitchen through a step by step decorating of the "kingdom" of Mrs Applepie and her joyous Team  :P

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

Before starting work on the Victorian kitchen revisited with Karims recipe, I would like to share with you an idea I had when editing a picture of the 1900 bus coming onto Regent St...

Those of you familiar with the original project may remember that I used an oil painted decor as a background together with a customized Playmo tree to greet the visitors on the Street...

I have until now planned all the outside landscape according to the volumes of a much larger mansion than the original which calls for large trees ( 25 to 30 cm tall ) to match as a background, especially at the entrance of Regent St and I spotted a few months ago a French website specialized into railway model accessories & décors including a great variety of plants & trees :

http://www.diorama.fr/vegetation-nature-decor-miniature-creches-fr.html (http://www.diorama.fr/vegetation-nature-decor-miniature-creches-fr.html)

Erable 35cm @ 26.70€

Platane 28cm @ 23.10€

Bouleau 29cm @ 23.10€

(http://i58.tinypic.com/143me0p.jpg)

Bouleau 27cm @ 18.80€

(http://i57.tinypic.com/2q1x8x0.jpg)

In the same line of thought and in order to create a visual perspective, I will add a decor as a background representing a busy London street from which the characters & vehicles will look as if they were coming from /

Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

Here we are finally starting with the decorating of the victorian kitchen which is THE moment I have been looking forward to ever since this project started a year ago, a little like the "cherry on the cake" for me...

Being of a "Foodie" nature and utterly in love with Victorian England, I am delighted to be able to start this "re-looking" especially now that the kitchen has doubled in size.

I invite you to start this Making of with the choice of the lighting since the entire diorama is lighted with lighting accesories available from a huge selection & variety from the 1/12th scale dollshouse world. With a novelty for this Making of which will also feature lighting accessories with LED lightbulb & battery operated, therefore avoiding all wiring and which can be put into place within a matter of second in the shape of a table lamp, a chandellier or a street light.

When I first introduced the "Electricity Fairy" to my previous project a few years ago, the battery operated lighting accessories had a very bulky, unaesthetic base which did not match the idea I had of my decor, and within a matter of just a few years, one can now purchase pretty lighting accessories with a discreet base hiding a little Lithium battery. It is by far the simplest solution to add light to a scene or a decor without any wiring and with an instant result :

3V Lithium Battery

Just like for any purchase involving dollshouse accessories to complement your Playmo scènes, it is very important that you carefully check the measurements of the object before buying it and always go for the smallest siez available - ie the smallest plate of a dinner service, the smallest pan and by extension the smallest table or hanging light available in order to match the scale of your Playmo accessories & characters. The same applies to chandelliers, especially the large ones which often necessitate a higher drop than the often relatively low Playmo ceilings.

Large chandelliers to avoid as per their non Playmocompatible size...

(http://i59.tinypic.com/2eg9yt3.jpg)

(http://i57.tinypic.com/n2kbxc.jpg)

Just like for the normal LED lighting, the light emanating from the 1/12th lighting accessories will be blue/white and cold contrasting with the warmer tones of a light bulb from the classic wiring electric system.

Most of the lights and chandelliers in the 1/12th scale are quite lightweight and the adhesive system to hang them will be sufficient even if one must bear in mind that one will have to turn the on/off manually all the time, so planning an accessible space for our "giant hands" is a Must in order to operate the tiny switch.

I cannot encourage you enough to always check the measurements of any 1/12th accessories before buying them in order to avoid a costly and disappointing result if you only listen to your "first impression & crush of it"...

The lighting system I have been using for years now is based on mini electrical extension cables & plugs connected to a 12V transformator :

(http://i57.tinypic.com/rrr0oz.jpg)

And finally here is the 2 arms chandellier I have selected for my victorian kitchen which will come in a pair :

(http://i59.tinypic.com/2yudeg8.jpg)

I could not possibly close this chapter dedicated to lighting without mentioning the fireplaces & grates which add so much life & authenticity to a victorian or any period kitchen by recreating the lighting and cosy atmosphere of a fireplace with a very realistic glowing embers :

(http://i60.tinypic.com/6nyvpk.jpg)

(http://i60.tinypic.com/149sbvs.jpg)

A little personal tip to add a realistic and lively touch to the victorian cooking range is to insert an orange glowing light :

And whatever makes dear Mrs Applepie happy  :love: :

In the next episode of this Making of, I will present the compatibility of Sylvanian Families & Playmo ranges since I decided to furnish my victorian kitchen of a selection of both brands  ;)...

I thank you for following this little episode on the compatibility between Playmobil & the Sylvanian Families toys, excepted for the chairs which are too big for our Klickies  :)

Please stay tuned for the decoration of the victorian kitchen coming soon  ;)

May I take you along with me for a little grocery shopping ?

Some of you already know the mini delights featured in my scènes created from sculpting and cooking FIMO Polymer Clay for an incredible lifelike result in a great variety of mini foods ranging from sweets to elaborate dishes which have become a real passion for me over the years. 

But I can understand that the highly realistic finish of these créations which become just like the original may not be what some of you imagine when it comes to Playmobil compatible mini food accessories.

So should you be looking for plastic made mini food accessories similar to those available in the Playmobil toy range, I invite you to discover new toy ranges offering a great variety of mini foods which I discovered last year while doing online researches and which may be of interest to you for future projects  :)

Sylvanian Families

Though I followed quite late into the footsteps of other navigators of the Playmocompatible accessories such our Friend Sdan, the fisrt person to ever introduce me to the Sylvanian Families toy range was our Friend Emma Jane who started customizing Sylvanian sets with her her magical Playmo wand. I have shown the Playmocompatibility of the Sylvanian sets with our dear Klickies to the exception of the seating furniture such as chairs and sofas which are too large. There is nevertheless a huge variety of accessories available including mini foods always beautifully presented with a great collection of matching stickers :

I have also discovered a whole new range of plastic made mini foods coming from Asia ( mostly from Japan ) which are highly collectible and perfect for those Asian meals scènes ( Sushis, Springrolls, etc ) and which are starting to be available in Europe and the US :
