Halloween Spooky Witch Dresser
Yes, it's still June. It's probably the nature of miniatures to think ahead in terms of holidays and I've got Halloween on the brain for the last couple of weeks. I had great plans for Halloween miniatures last year in the run up to Autumn & Christmas. We had just gotten a hard-won Dolls & Miniatures category at Etsy and all systems were go. But best laid plans and all that. I ended up on bedrest for little Olly and made very little for either holiday. I'm going to make all that great stuff for this year instead.
In the meantime, this 1/12 Spooky Witch Dresser (sold on ebay) was a real hoot to make back in 2006. There were all sorts of goodies crammed in every which way on shelves and behind doors. Witchy poo's stripey socks have been washed and hung up to dry, and she's got a permanent lager tap in one of her cupboards. Burp! Her multi-colored spellmaking candles line the shelves and she's baked a cake full of eye of newt. There is a skeletal hand holding a poisoned apple, jam jars filled with all manner of things you shouldn't be preserving, and behind one of those cupboard doors is actually the mummified remains of a postman skeleton still dressed in all his finery and clutching his little leather bag. We never did find out what he did to make her so cross. Enjoy! :O)
