Hola! It’s officially September, everyone! Go grab Halloween craft supplies before they run out! They’re already at the stores! (At least in the US anyway. :p)
Oh, before I start talking about my Sylvanian town, I saw candy wagons for sale at Toys R Us today! As always, there still hasn’t been any update on new products on Calico Critter official site, so here is the link on Sylvanian Families UK official site, just so you can see the details.
By the way, my giveaway is still accepting entries. The deadline is September 4th, 2017 (23:59 PM Mountain Daylight Time) !!
Okay, okay, I think I’m done with notices…
Today, I’d like to inform the current state of Humpty Town.
At the moment, I’m making a downtown diorama, which is a size of a full size bed. It is supposed to go on top of my full size loft bed frame.
What you saw in the first photo is the rough layout of the downtown.
When I make a large scale diorama, I usually think of a layout on a piece of paper. I measure the buildings precisely, and scale them down. There is a lot of simple math that goes on in crafting, believe it or not!
Since this is a huge diorama, I’m not planning on finishing it up at once. It’s more of a ongoing side project. (Although I already have many of them. LOL)
Right now I’m working on the area around ballet theater, so I can have events in the open area. (The photo below is just a quick set up for a photo shoot, so not really what it’s going to look like on my diorama…oops!)
Oh yeah, I have some new residents in my town to introduce to you. Meet “Hanazono Rabbit Family (Flower Garden Rabbit Family)”!! This family is exclusively sold at Fukuoka Sylvania Garden. Fukuoka is a southern prefecture in Japan, and pretty far away from Tokyo, so I didn’t think I would ever have a chance to have these guys, but a fellow Sylvanian that came to see my diorama at Tokyo Toy Show gave them to me as a gift. How sweet is that!?
Also, my friend in Japan recently sent me a “Soyokaze Cat sister (breeze cat sister).” This cute kitty is from Grinpa Park in Shizuoka, Japan. Yes, this one is also an exclusive doll.
I know what you’re thinking…..you wish you could speak Japanese and had buddies in Japan that are Sylvanians! Hehehe…
I actually have so many more new residents in my town, but I haven’t had a chance to take proper photos for them. But I thought you might be interested in these two exclusive types.
Well, I’m super behind my crafting schedule, so I’m going now….see you next week!
