People say that art imitates life. I bring you a post about something of the sort.
This year our way of life has been altered by Covid-19. Masks, gloves and plastic screens have become an everyday necessary object to use, to protect ourselves, and others as well.
I have seen many (many!) people incorporating such articles to their miniature scenes. I refuse to do it. First, because Kassandra is a vampire, and as such, she cannot get sick. But second, because for me, my miniature wold is an ideal place. A place where bad things cannot happen. Where people do not die, and sickness cannot enter. Covid-19 does not exist in miniature - even though the real virus is smaller than 1:144 scale.
I asked my mom today if she would be interested in some masks for her dolls, and she said no - apparently, she thinks the same as me: that with real-life Covid is more than enough. However, she said she would be happy to have a box for her medical scene - a doctor practice.
Some days ago, I found a blog where the owner was providing a template to make a mask box. Doing the mask was another thing. I managed to come up with a method using blue tissue paper, regular white paper and a bit of white cord (white thread would work as well):
It is a little bigger than it should, but I could not manage to make it smaller. If you are in need of a mask for your dolls or a little bit of hand sanitizer, you can get them at Buttecups Miniatures.
Stay safe and happy holidays!
