The diorama has finally made it all the way across the 10ft gap between my workbench and the photography table. Today I took some preliminary shots with my big-girl camera, proper lights, trees and Sylvanian Families figures. Could it have been achieved more quickly? Yes. However, this set up is glued and sealed and will not collapse in the middle of a photo shoot. Thus I am HAPPY. At last.
What’s next? Obviously Sylvanians will move to Wintermitten Island and begin their new, bitterly cold lives there. We have an igloo and two houses for our first settlers to make into homes over this coming winter. Next year they’ll build a little town of shops inland beyond those mountains, which will require another icy diorama… Yup. Another diorama. haaaaaa!
