<b>Caspian X of Narnia</b>
<P>
When twenty-something year old Caspian X of Narnia arrived in Storybrooke no one could have been more surprised than him – moments before he’d been sixty-six, dead and on his way to Aslan’s country with the bewildering knowledge that his son, missing and presumed lost forever, was alive and well and there holding his hand as he died. He’s not sure if his presence in Storybrooke is some sort of odd quest or an accident but he’s presently trying to make the most of it because that’s what he’s always done in difficult situations. Caspian was born to inherit his father’s throne, however on his father’s death his uncle proclaimed himself regent and Caspian spent his childhood preparing to flee whatever killers his uncle sent after him. His uncle did not disappoint and it was only after the Kings and Queens of old came back to help his cause that Caspian was able to best his uncle on the field of battle and win his crown with the help of the previously-believed-extinct Narnians. After that he voyaged to the edge of the world and came back with a star’s daughter as a bride. Alas his life continued to be full of woe as he was plagued by depression and the burden of rulership put a lot of strain on his marriage. Rilian, his son, was a bright spot but vanished not long after his wife was killed by the bite of a poisonous snake. As such Caspian has spent the last few years of his life alone and focused entirely on holding his kingdom together to the exclusion of all else.
<P>
<b>Friends</b><BR>
Desperately needed but difficult to make! Caspian’s always had a very small social circle, being an unwanted prince left any friends he made as a boy vulnerable to attack so he didn’t make them and once he was a king he simply found it difficult to trust people’s motives and show any sort of favouritism when maintaining peace in his country was always such a delicate balancing act. Plus by that time he had no idea how to make friends although as his job involved a lot of dealing with people he was good at faking it. These days he doesn’t have to worry about holding a kingdom of warring races together and is a bit more relaxed, so there is a better chance of his making friends. He’s got no idea what he’d look for in a friend, I’d like someone who’d persuade him to actually seek help for his depression and although he’d unintentionally be quite high maintenance as a friend (his late best friend generally considered keeping him alive and well a full time job in its own right) he’d also move heaven and earth for his friends in turn.
<P>
<b>Enemies</b><BR>
Right now Caspian is emotionally exhausted and does not have a lot of energy going spare to devote to enemies. He will not go looking for them although should someone threaten others he will act to protect them because he’s still Aslan’s champion and that still means something to him. He will always consider the White Witch an enemy for this reason and hates the lady in the green kirtle with the fire of a thousand suns for what she did to his son.
<P>
<b>Lovers</b><BR>
Caspian was in a loving but unhealthy relationship with his wife, Lilliandil, for much of his adult life and after her death never seriously considered marrying again. At present with the dead turning up in town he’s not sure if he’s widowed or not and as such is reluctant to get romantically involved with anyone, although I’m not against things happening if he hits it off with someone.
<P>
<b>Other</b><BR>
Caspian presently works at a day care centre so could easily run into fellow workers or parents. He’s also an avid sailor so if anyone wants to go out to sea with him he’s up for day trips. Also sparring partners, he’s picked up sword fighting again and needs someone to train with.

<b>Sasha Draconis</b>
<P> Sasha Drconis is the great dragon scourge of the mountain kingdoms, you know, the one who was eating fair maidens and nearly ate a princess but got subdued by magical underwear wielded by a passing knight by name of St George? Yeah, didn’t quite go like that. Said princess asked for his assistance in rescuing said fair maidens (women of all ages and situations, really) from abusive home lives and got him to agree by giving him items from her jewellery box for his horde. After a while he just liked the company and kept doing it to help. The whole magic garter plot was dreamed up to help the princess herself escape a marriage and Sasha to stay alive. He came to Storybrooke with the first curse and spent the twenty-eight years as the town’s resident homeless person, constantly losing his horde and generally being a nuisance and laughing stock all in one. Since the curse has broken he’s worked out how to turn back into a dragon but largely stays human, moved in with the princess and St George, become a godfather to their baby and joined the fight department.
<P>
<b>Friends</b><BR>
Sasha very much has the personality of a cat. If he wants to be your friend he will be and any discouragement will be blithely ignored because who wouldn’t want to be friends with him? He’s awesome. Also unlikely to suffer from self-confidence issues any time this century and vain as hell, but still generous with his time and resources if he decides that he likes someone. He’s the sort of friend who’ll give up an afternoon to help decorate the house or hand over treasured pieces of his hoard to complete some outfit or project.
<P>
<b>Enemies</b><BR>
If Sasha takes offence, you will know it. Subtle this dragon is not even if he doesn’t threaten to eat people these days. Good thing is he’s pretty hard to offend, the only things to regularly get a rise out of him are insults directed at his appearance and people threatening his friends. He’s also often mystified at people taking offence at things he says (blunt honesty is not always a good thing) and for things that happened years ago. So he burned your barn down to prove a point that one time, he left the farmhouse and livestock alone, didn’t he?
<P>
<b>Lovers</b><BR>
At this point in time I’m not sure if he’s interested in developing a love life given that he feels all his emotional needs are being met by his social life right now, but things happen and I think Sasha in love would be a hilarious disaster so I’m not ruling it out.
<P>
<b>Other</b><BR>
Sasha is in possession of a horde which must have come from somewhere and the individual items probably belonged to other people before they came into his possession, so maybe people could come looking for things? He’s not an active thief these days but he’ll pick stuff up if it looks abandoned. He’s also a firefighter, so if anything’s on fire he might turn up to help. Alternately he is a dragon, so if something needs setting on fire he’s pretty handy.

<b>Permanent Rose Owens</b>
<P> As a little girl Permanent Rose (artistic mothers, aren’t they great?) decided that her family didn’t want her around (big miscommunication all around) and ran off to join the navy under the name of Ishmael. She served in the navy until the war ended, transferred briefly to the merchant service and eventually went whaling on the Pequod with very unfortunate results. She did befriend Moby Dick though. After that she went home and was welcomed with open arms, taking on a job in her family’s tavern where she met the love of her life and the girl she’s going to marry despite the opposition of Drizella's mother, Lady Tremaine, who wants her daughter to marry up and not down. Alas, just as she and her lady love were about to move in together the curse hit and she spent the next twenty eight years as the town harbourmaster, isolated from her family after one too many misunderstandings led to them not speaking and separated from Drizella with no memory of her. Oddly enough she still had a white whale to talk to though…
<P>
<b>Friends</b><BR>
Permanent Rose has pretty much counted a white whale as one of her best friends for years, so she’s in desperate need of some human friends to talk to. Or humanoid, anyway, although there is a want ad up for Moby Dick if anyone’s interested. So, Permanent Rose herself is a somewhat introverted soul in that she doesn’t tend to make friends easily and generally is happy keeping herself entertained, but on the other hand she’s spent her formative years bonding with all sorts of people from all over the world in the understanding that they’re going into battle together so she can bond with and care for just about anyone in a short space of time.
<P>
<b>Enemies</b><BR>
Through being he young lady to sweep Drizella Tremaine off her feet, Lady Tremaine, for one. Possibly Cinderella, her husband and friends and maybe Anastasia Tremaine. As a long serving naval seaman and officer quite possibly a whole rash of pirates, members of other country’s armed forces, the civil service in general… I’d actually love to see her in an interservice rivalry relationship with another branch of the armed forces. She’s also not fond of whale hunters these days seeing as her best friend is a whale and her job as harbourmaster is bound to bring her into friction with someone.
<P>
<b>Lovers</b><br>
Very much taken and dreaming of getting married to Drizella Tremaine, with whom she has been recently reunited. In the wine and spirits section of a shop, no less. Anyway, she wasn’t a complete hermit for the twenty eight years she spent cursed so while it wouldn’t have gone very far she might have the odd ex around the place. Oh, and she might be a widow – she’s not really sure if Queequag thought they were married or not and after a while was too embarrassed to ask. Anyway, if anyone wants to help her plan the perfect proposal (she’s pretty confident Drizella will say yes, but still) then she’s open to suggestions.
<P>
<b>Other</b><BR>
She’s a harbourmaster, so anything to do with ships and docks will likely involve her at some point. Then there’s the bar her family runs, there could always be drama there seeing as she’s usually the one called in to throw the drunk and disorderly out.

<b>Vlad Dracula</b>
<P> Once an abused child abandoned by his family and far from home, Vlad went on to become a warlord in his own right and attained infamy by impaling people by the hundreds, picking fights with pretty much every neighbouring country he had and managing to hold his own against empires using lies, damned lies and syphilis. Really, he’s mellowed a lot since embracing the vampire lifestyle (funny story that…) and becoming a living legend. Undead legend. He rarely impales people these days anyway although he was recently fighting in a war along with his three wives as his descendant asked for his help with it and made a decent attempt at infecting the enemy with smallpox. He also turned his lover Lucy into a vampire to save her life (unfortunate business all around), got smacked over the head by Jonathan Harker for kissing him and made an enemy of Van Helsing and his crew. Next (there’s always a next with Vlad) he got dumped through a portal to Storybrooke and is currently working as a SWAT officer on the town’s police force. They don’t let him near thieves. He has very firm views on theft.
<P>
<b>Friends</b><BR>
Vlad is friendly. Charming, even. Affably evil, maybe. Depends on your point of view and Vlad’s view is that he’s not a good person but he’s not a mindless killer either so most people should be reasonably safe around him and he likes company. He’ll happily talk to just about anyone although the people he elevates to the rank of fried are a select bunch who interest him and historically he’s only told a handful of very close friends/lovers that he’s a vampire of some centuries, so even when he’s really enjoying someone’s company he’s holding parts of himself back. Once he is a friend he’s hard to get rid of though, loyal, caring, generally good at remembering birthdays, the sort of person who will help you hide a body at three in the morning if asked and generally prone to getting underfoot.
<P>
<b>Enemies</b><BR>
Well, there’s most of his family for a start. He’s only got on with two, maybe three of his blood relatives and he’s not sure his mother counts as he didn’t actually see that much of her. Otherwise there’s the vampire hunting crowd, he does bite people so someone could always get upset about him feeding from their friend/relative and he’s a cop so he tends to make a number of enemies at work. On an individual level Vlad doesn’t take a whole lot of stuff personally but threats to the people he loves, cares about or feels duty bound to protect will earn his ire, and historically that has not ended well for people.
<P>
<b>Lovers</b><BR>
Vlad is in an open polyamorous relationship with his three wives – Justina (who he was married to as a human) Mirena (their mistress) and Elizaveta (Justina’s lover who later became Vlad and Mirena’s lover as well). His secret ambition is to introduce another guy to their family just so he’s not so badly outnumbered. Recently there’s also been the strange case of Lucy – a casual lover of Vlad’s who ended up sort of tagging along after her impending death caused Vlad to turn her into a vampire and is presently in the limbo of being unable to survive alone but not really part of the family either. At the moment Vlad is still up for everything from flings to romantic relationships complete with red roses and bad poetry, but he’d be a bit reluctant to take anyone new home to meet his wives and Lucy. On the other hand he’s always delighted to meet whomever they’ve been seeing and generally considers them as part of the extended family for however long they stick around.
<P>
<b>Others</b><BR>
I mentioned in his app that some of Vlad’s descendants fell through portals, so I would love it if he suddenly had great-something-grandchildren pop up in his life just because of the fun drama that could cause. (Ever read the New Dracula series? Sherlock Holmes and Vlad Dracula being related always makes me smile.) Also he’s got terrible sea sickness, so naturally I want him stuck on a boat at some point. He’s also a member of the police force so there could be lots of fun there with cops/robbers/general shenanigans. Then there’s the options of honour and duty – Vlad does have a moral code of sorts and if someone helps him he will feel hour bound to help them in turn and will often hang around until he feels all debts of honour have been repaid. He was also raised to rule and while he never got on well with the ruling classes he actually had a good relationship with his people as he did make it his business to see the safe, fed, housed and sometimes even educated. Basically if for any reason he thinks you’re is responsibility he will happily answer all requests for assistant and generally meddle.

<b>Fa Mulan</b>
<P> Legendary warrior of the empire and resident badass, Mulan started out life as a girl just trying to fit into a role she just wasn’t suited for. Then a war happened and to spare her father and younger brother she disguised herself as a boy and filled her family’s conscription orders. Discovered as a girl sometime later she transferred to an all-new female regiment headed by their princess, a regiment which Mulan helped build from the ground up into a near-legendary fighting force during the course of the war. After the war she went home for a while but her fiancé of some years failed to come marry her so she went adventuring instead, meeting both Belle French and Prince Philip not long after. She joined Philip’s quest to rescue Princess Aurora and has almost been bouncing from one quest to the next ever since – the one period where she didn’t have anything to do and all her friends were busy living their lives she went off the rails for a while and it took the intervention of Merida and her quest to get her back on track. Most recently Mulan has been questing in Oz and arrived in Storybrooke via random tornado. Odd place, Oz.
<P>
<b>Friends</b><BR>
Mulan is new in town and needs friends! And to hook up with her old ones. She’s always been the sort of person who’s happiest running around doing things (pretty much every friend she’s had she’s made through questing) so she’d likely be drawn to people of a similar mindset or who she’s working with towards a joint goal. She’s a very dependable person and puts a great emphasis on honour, so she’d probably gravitate towards people of a similar dedication and moral code although it would be interesting to have her deal with a friend who has a very different outlook on life so I’d not rule that out either, she’d just have to get to know them first so that she’d be reluctant to cut ties with them.
<P>
<b>Enemies</b><BR>
The Huns. The dishonourable. Wraiths. Cora. Her maybe-future-in-laws (although she doesn’t know this yet). Anyone she’s quested against. There’s quite a list here. As an enemy Mulan can be relentless, often enemies are people she’s actively fighting and she won’t allow herself to stop or give up before they’re defeated or their schemes thwarted, but that’s also save-the-day/village/world level questing so I don’t think she’s going to have a huge number around.
<P>
<b>Lovers</b><BR>
Bit of an interesting field. Mulan was engaged to Sheng as a young woman when she was running around with the army but due to communication problems she knew a few years before he did and was too tongue tied about personal matters to tell him that she was the mystery girl he was engaged to. He found out and things seemed to be going well for a while but from her perspective he stood her up big time in the end, leading to her questing with Philip. Who she fell in love with. Confusingly for her she also fell in love with Aurora at the same time and eventually got to a state where she was going to tell them, but then Aurora was pregnant and she chickened out. At present she’s sort of open to a new relationship but she’s still pining for her lost loves and will probably take a while to warm up to anyone.
<P>
<b>Other</b><BR>
Mulan has opened a martial arts training school in town so students are always welcome and needed! Otherwise Mulan is always up for quests, be it rescuing cats from trees or rounding up magical ingredients to defeat a curse, so would happily help anyone in need.

<b>Lavinia, the Little Match Girl</b>
<P>
Still on the list! As with all little match girls went about dying in the snow one Christmas eve, only death was filling in for Father Christmas that night and gave her the gift of a future. Said future did not include going back to selling matches as she was picked up by the agency tasked with combating/clearing up after fairytales determined to repeat themselves in endless loops after an author sometime in the indeterminate past screwed up. Several years down the line she’s in her late teens and already one of their more versatile and promising agents, at which point she falls through a portal and ends up in Storybrooke. Possibly has a few powers of her own, I’d say death related but a few might be match girl related, still working on the details. Has a playlist already and boy is she an angry little soul and it’s only going to get worse when it’s pointed out that she’s sort of underage here (she’s been earning a wage since she was five so she’s not going to get that at all) and needs a responsible adult to live with/a place at the children’s home.

<b>Felicie</b>
<P> Pretty much sticking to the story of an orphan girl run away to Paris to live her dream of learning to dance, stealing another girl’s name and place to do it initially but later earning a place on her own merits. She’s going to be a bit older than she was in the film, maybe twenty, and filling the role of the ballerina in the steadfast tin soldier. Haven’t yet decided if that’s her childhood friend or someone else, might try and find a way of leaving it ambiguous, and her mother’s going to be Giselle of the ballet with her father one of the two suitors who didn’t stick around. Might have come with the first curse and I don’t think she’d want to teach dance at this point in her life, so… maybe Storybrooke has its own theatre and she can be a dancer there? Or maybe she can help start one if she can round up enough performers? Or maybe her goblin stalker person can build one for her and make life really complicated? She’s lively, very energetic and a gifted dancer, which means I need to learn a whole lot of ballet terms. I can feel a lot of time watching youtube tutorials and videos coming up…<P>

Either way she’s going to need a foster home (I don’t think she’d cope well with the convent after being in an orphanage) and her vocabulary is way better than mine so I’m going to need a thesaurus.<P>

Post Spooks: The Greater Good anyway and generally poking around, trying and failing to get messages out to his people, trying to work out what all this talk of magic means (it can’t possibly be actual magic, right?) and waiting for them to realise he’s missing/stuck (things keep happening when he tries to leave though he’s blaming sabotage rather than magic) and come rescue him.<P>

<P> Rapunzel’s dad because he’s one of the saddest Disney dads and I’d like to explore him getting his baby girl back as a teenager who’s both more sheltered and more independent than he’s in any way prepared for? Plus the long-term impact of loosing her in the first place and the tricky situation of trying to bond with her while she’s getting involved with Flynn, who I think he’d be sort of torn about in that this guy saved his daughter so he adores him, but is also a thief and he’s sort of taking her away from him when he only just got her back so he’d kind of like him to butt out at the same time? Going to be an interesting balancing act anyway! For backstory I was thinking Bluebeard’s posthumous kid, just to keep up the family tradition of freaky hair, and maybe his wife was the heir to the throne and became a queen in her own right so he’s a prince consort rather than a king? Just thought it would be interesting to play the husband of a monarch rather than a wife of one. I did actually get his app drafted while my internet was down a week or two back so he’s possibly going to be the next make if the associated people are happy with this plan, only after I’d got most of the way through he decided to tell me that he’s passionately interested in the language of flowers and that’s going to mean heavy editing with a dictionary of flowers to hand so… well, I’ll have plenty of time to work out what his name is. As far as I know he wasn’t named in the movie (which I’ve seen), is called Fredric in the cartoon (thanks Avril!) but I haven’t seen that, I like the name Bronn for him (the closest male equivalent of Brona meaning sorrow that I could find) and I also like the name Karol for him. Not sure why. Decisions, decisions.<P>

<b>Regulus Black</b>
<P> Think I’ve app’d this guy a couple of times but never got to play him? (Every HP board I go near erupts into Drama, hoping it’s bad luck and I’m not the Mrs Cake of the fandom…) but there’ a few HP people around here so I thought he might be fun? Basic story would stay the same – the perfect Black son who discovered Voldemort was making horcruxes when he abused his house elf Kreacher and left him to die, knowingly went to his death in the cave in a bid to destroy it and was thought ever after to have chickened out of the death eaters and as a result was hunted down and killed. In my head this is someone who’s been shoehorned into the role of the good son because Sirius took the role of the bad son and spent a fair amount of his time as a kid sitting at the kitchen table with the family house elf while his parents ranted and raved in the rooms overhead, well aware that they didn’t really care about him as a person and that they’d only treat him well as long as he did exactly what they wanted him to. Toying with the idea of giving him cardiomyopathy that was going to kill him within a year anyway (might be that I didn’t read/understand things properly but I always found it odd that his response seemed to be noble sacrifice rather than something more sensible?) so then he can fall through a portal while being dragged down by the inferi, crash land in Storybrooke, have an emergency heart transplant (Geneco? From someone else? Magic heart?) and then… work out what the hell he’s supposed to do next now he’s not in magical Britain and he’s going to live if he takes his medication and follows the post-transplant instructions. <P>

<b>Lily Potter</b>
<P> Have to say that I’ve never really thought about Lily Potter – she’s been too much the model of self-sacrificing mother to really be a person in her own right in my head I think? A lot of the books I was reading around the time the HP series was coming out had dead mothers/parents and they sort of blurred together – but I’ve been listening to the audiobooks again while doing sewing projects and I’m starting to get curious about her? Like what she’d have done if she had more time, how she’d take being the mother of a famous kid, whose ass she’d kick first if she read the books and found out what they did to her son, what her hopes and dreams for her life going forwards in peacetime would be… yeah, just generally all around curious. She’d be up from the underworld anyway.

Yeah, he’s a fun one in that regard. Plus there’s the whole thing about a Met detective maybe travelling in time to meet him in the 14th century or summoning him into a hallucination, his possibly putting a sword through a man attempting to shoot Lady Ty a hundred and fifty odd years after he died and the flooding of a London street while apparently wearing a loincloth and his not seeming entirely sure about his living status himself? In any case, could be a fun person to have around! If his brothers are anything to go by laid back chaos will happen. Possibly ended up in Storybrooke after poking at something to see if he was real/alive/dead/other. <P>

<b>Orphan</b>
<P>
The first scruffian and somewhat accidental functional immortal? He was found on a hill as a baby and sort of got dragged up by assorted people who made him sing regardless of his own wishes in the matter (only better singer the scruffians have got is Apple and he’s a god of music, so…) and one day he was singing at the wedding of a princess about how beautiful she was when death heard him and decided to kidnap the princess. Naturally this was all his fault and the adults decided to fix him so that he could cross the river of forgetting and the seven doors that strips everything you are from you an get their princess back, which involved making a special stamp that was able to take in everything he was at the first pass and imprint it on him at the second so he was able to cross the river and go through the doors while remembering what he was doing there and how to sing to get the princess back. So he does this, brings a shell of her back (no one seems to mind this) and they try to make him sing again only he refuses so they beat him to death. Problem being that stamp on his chest fixes him as he was when the impression was taken so although it takes months to reassemble himself he heals. Unintentionally functionally immortal. There’s some reference to his being scrubbed by Baccy (another god – I think this equates to removing all personality and memory but might mean scrubbing from existence) but otherwise he disappears at this point and the stamp doesn’t see much use until the days of Scallywag Jack, the scruffian knight, when they start using it to make immortals for a children’s crusade and thereafter undying slaves. So my idea was basically that Orphan teams up with Jack in his bid to free all the scruffians (the immortal’s names for themselves) from slavery and while this starts with just the scruffians they eventually start world hopping and do it elsewhere as well seeing as they have sort of vanished according to the scruffians? I was thinking that the underworld seems to underpin all worlds so they probably travelled through there, seeing as it couldn’t really hold onto them, and that he might have wound up as a lost boy? IDK, might be a bit much even for me, but if he thought that the boys were being held against their will he might have gone with the shadow to see if they needed saving with the idea of Jack following on after, only something went wrong and he ended up staying because damnit someone has to prevent everyone from getting food poisoning every other week and he doesn’t see anyone else volunteering. Would probably avoid all harm so Peter doesn’t realise he lied about being a normal boy (Tootles?) but otherwise be the one who put his foot down about practical things like latrine pits. Keep flip-flopping with the pb as well so we’ll see.

Don’t get me wrong I still think Henry’s an interesting guy, I just… idk, both girls I’ve got so far have dressed up as boys to go on adventures and Carina’s life would probably have been easier in some regards if she’d done something similar but she never seems to have considered it? So she’s a girl and she’s hella smart and she’s not going to pretend to be something she’s not even if it kills her and to be fair it did take her all the way to the new world and to the end of her quest? I even went to the extent of getting hold of her prequel book so probably fairly serious about this one… anyway, portals all the way, maybe whirlpool induced?<P>

So she’s the youngest of the group and the only female and still it’s leader, an incredibly smart and determined woman and just all around awesome? As with Carina I very much like the idea of a woman who’s never considered pretending not to be a woman while pursuing her dreams in a male-dominated world and carving out a place for herself in the process. Would probably have ended up in Storybrooke while travelling through time and got stuck and I would probably end up doing a heck of a lot of research into Spanish history and literature because she’s a genius in both.<P>

Just thought you guys might like to see what I get up to when I poof for a few days at a time. Sorry about the photos, I'll try and get them rotated and resized before posting next time.


This is my most recent addition, it's going to be a room in Dracula's castle (largely inspired by Dracula Untold, because Luke Evans) and it's wood covered in paperclay. The actual coating of the wood in clay was done last October at a craft weekend so what I've been doing the past few days is finding and filling in the cracks from where the clay's shrunk as it dried and painting it. First was a pale grey wash for the grouting, which wasn't so bad, but then came painting all the flagstones individually with water-thinned acrylics while keeping clear of the grouting. This usually involved me grabbing kitchen roll and trying to scrub the grouting clean before the paint sank into it while trying not to screw up the flagstones. Then the second coat was supposed to be brown according to the instructions to give it depth, but that ended up coming out a weird colour so I put another layer of grey on. Then the door needed staining and the hinges and handle gluing on before it got glued in place. Anyway, now it's all ready to go http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif


So, in between coats of paint I had a go at a couple of smaller projects, like assembling and varnishing this small table. I think the kit called it a Tudor joint stool, but it's functioning as a small table for a hot water urn here and caused me a bit of confusion in that I didn't expect the legs to be angled, but I like how it turned out.


Another project I actually completed was this pair of muddy clogs which came as bare wood, so they've been stained, had a pattern painted on them (not well, but my painting skills suck so this was as good as it was going to get), had scenic scatter glued to them and finally had scenic scatter mixed with paint added. They look really large for 1/12th scale but my story is that these are overshoes, so you'd wear them over your normal, indoor shoes. Cinderella did it in the 1950's film and Disney wouldn't lie to us, so this is a thing.


Then, there's this chair, which is pretty cool because the seat lifts up for storage but gave me a headache because I lost the kit's inventory list so fitting it together was a dry build trial and error process, during which I discovered numerous pieces needed staining in places I hadn't thought they did originally. I also discovered during this that my two metal rulers are slightly out of sync with each other and ended up using bits of wood in the kit to measure where to put the seat support inside, which to be honest I'm surprised I didn't do in the first place because this is what I usually do and explains a lot about why all my furniture comes out rickety.


From the realm of unfinished projects we've got this clock, on which the blue paint is a lovely colour but took forever to dry and the face still needs some work. A lot of work.


There's also these little guys who I got out of a playmobile advent calendar (I don't care if they're for kids, I've got them for three years and they just make me happy), who still need their eyes painting black but I did get their tails, paws and ears sorted out. They also need furring and I know I've got instructions for that somewhere...


So, this was probably the most disappointing of the current batch. These were supposed to be framed prints and I got them cut out and stuck on black card ok, but the frames just did not work for me at all. They kept falling apart and the one that eventually made it to completion was just slightly the wrong size for any of them. On the bright side I found a glue that worked on the plastic I'm using for the glass after a few goes and I got to use the craft clamps my parents gave me for Christmas at last, so not a total loss! Just need to have another go at the frames in a bit.


This is going to be the fireplace for Dracula's room and has also been a bit of a headache. So, to start with the baseboard (that's the original paperclay colouring, hence the need to turn the grouting pale grey) got warped in the drying process, so I drenched it in water and put it under a heavy box where I forgot about it for several days while using the fireplace itself as a sort of dry run for the paints before I tackled the main roombox, which is why it's come out a more uniform grey than I'd intended. Then after painting it I decided that I wanted a carved dragon on the back and when initial plans to cover a dragon charm in stone-effect spray paint then paint that grey met with limited effect

I ended up using another charm to make a mould and made the carving from peperclay and stuck it to the fireplace. It'll need painting and I'm hoping the joins will be less noticeable once it's painted and attacked with soot. Or something to make it look like a sooty fireplace. Possibly black pastel.


Then this is my Hufflepuff common room roombocx, which I didn't make this weekend (that took, like, a month last summer) but I did haul everything out of it for the purposes of dusting and rearranging it all.

So, that's what I've been up to for the past few days, crafting and watching season 3 of Penny Dreadful which was awesome and sad and terribly distracting as every few minutes I'd be looking up in astonishment at the amount of bloodshed, gazing a scenery/costume porn and marvelling at the poor decision making going on. Then scrabbling to get paint and glue back where they were supposed to be before they could dry and cause problems.
