This is a pop-up diorama I made for Sharon Rooney (My Mad Fat Diary), to mark her professional stage debut in Henry IV at the Donmar Warehouse. I gave it to her when I went to see the play this weekend.
It’s made from 160gsm card and glitter paper, with sequins for the footlights (glued on), spotlights (sewn on cos they’re translucent and any adhesive would show through) and star garland (hung on sewing thread). ‘Loving your work’ is a quote from MMFD. I left enough room behind the ‘Sharon’ to sit an electric tealight in. It took 7hrs’ work but I’m pleased with the end result!

Channeling my inner Dr. Frank-n-Furter!
I see how great this looks and I wonder to myself how it is I do not own a Rocky Horror t-shirt?!?!
Great photo, Alyssa!
I’ve been making some really small ink studies of Hampton Court Palace (FROM MY MIND) before I visit it for the first time tomorrow ^_^
Ah, what a good idea! I’m an artist but I have ME/CFS and really struggle to get much done. Dividing the page up like this and doing tiny sketches might be an answer!
It’s years since I went to Hampton Court, but I loved seeing it. Am heavily into Tudor history so it was amazing seeing it all so well preserved.
My frock for my 39.9th birthday party (my 40th is in December but everyone’s always to busy then). Got it in the Phase Eight sale, reduced from £165 to £49!!! The colours are much more vibrant, but the camera on my tablet is crap. I have a red tulle petticoat to put under it, gold Mary Jane shoes from Hotter and a big ‘Cherry Blossom’ necklace from Tatty Devine (which cost more than the dress!).
greenangelheart I spotted two dresses on your blog which are similar! This one: http://greenangelheart.tumblr.com/post/99909684844/premierbonheur-chotronette

Very clever styling! Straightaway I thought of ‘Ophelia’ by Millais.
Downs Designs produces jeans, capri pants and shirts for individuals with Down syndrome, a genetic disorder that leaves patients with developmental delays and intellectual disability. Patients with Down syndrome are physically built differently than other people, and as a result often lack access to well-fitting clothes, furthering negative perceptions of people who have the disorder and increasing the condition’s social stigma.
