Concert Stage Work in Progress

Mixing and matching different accessories from various sets like Barbie Rockers, Bratz, and off brands overseas and giving them a little makeover.   Just have to figure how to get the dolls to stand without one seeing the doll stands.

You can't tell from the picture but the Drum Set is on a floor that can spin. 


In the back ground u see the a computer monitor that will become the "Big Screen" and standing next to them is a Rockers Stage that I will attach to the monitor.  I also by adding more details like accents colors and lighting.


Duct Tape so many uses, the brick was just to boring so I found this tape at Wally World, and decided it was perfect.  You can still tell it is brick stage but now it is a "painted" cool colors, I used electric tape as the border


This piece will be where the the keyboard player will stand




Still working on the exactly how the top part will look!!

Awaiting my New Arrivals



Finally completing my Ghostbuster set with the edition of Egon and Ray, It took 2 years but according to Fed-ex tracking the set will be complete, thanks to Christmas Cash from the Best Uncle ever.  





Christmas money from the Best Aunt/Godmother was used to get something I asked Santa Clause for in 1984 after seeing the commercial.



And the last of my Christmas money that wasn't spent on my Medicine went to add some Hispanic Flavor to my doll collection with the edition of Fashion Fever Kayla




and Cali Girl Lea Riding version with hinge knee and elbows. 

These two ladies are coming via Vermont and are the last purchases for a while.  I need to get on the ball and set up my Ebay and Esty store and clean up my Studio or as my sister calls it my Toy Store.   Time to set up all my diorama's, inventory and clean up all my 1:12 scale dollhouse, furniture and accessories so I can sell them plus all the other old toys from our childhood that we no longer need.  We are only keeping the one's made by family members, hopefully we can pass those on to the next generation. 

Hopefully I will be able to set up my train along with my 1/6 Collection, I have so many ideas floating in my mind of things I want to build, actually have several notebooks with sketches of buildings and furniture.  The key is having more good days than bad, which hasn't been easy with this long journey battling Cancer and an Autoimmune Disorder.

VW Van conversion to Camper


In the process of converting my VW Van to a Surf Camper, I got the idea after watching the made for TV movie Beautiful Wave.  I will be using the Camper as a prop in my 1/6th scale Graphic Novel and eventually stop motion show/movies.

I took all the back seats out and will be making a custom bench seat that pulls out to a bed, also I will be building a sink, and  small fridge.  I am still debating having a grill or permanent stove for the van.

For the top of the van I have looked at various different VW Van conversions and decided on the top that lefts up and creates a sleeping area up top.   I think I am going with the orange roof.

I am currently trying to find small VW emblems to put on the bus, I will also be adding chrome and reflectors to the bus.

Barbie & the Rockers














Barbie Cottage Re-purposed to a Surfboard Shaper Hut



I made the surfboard holder out of Popsicle sticks, still need to weight it down in the middle.  I plan on adding shelving units and several surf board racks.
