I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I figured doll housing probably qualifies.
So, how do you display your dolls? Do you make furniture for them? Customize stuff meant for other dolls? Hunt down tiny props in second hand stores and gift shops? Do they have an actual doll house, or just a space on the shelf? Have any pictures you want to share?
I keep my dolls on my shelves under the TV, the furniture is cobbled together from a whole bunch of places, mostly second hand, and a lot of it isn't really meant for dolls, in fact it's mostly interestingly shaped jewellery boxes. Although I pulled out some of my barbie stuff when I got Draculaura, and I've been planning on painting it black.
Atlanta Wave, post a pic!
GaGa, your castle idea sounds awesome. unfortunatly i dont know anything about gesso. i made just one room out of cardboard and covered it in fabric but i doubt ud do that for a whole castle. i think i'm gonna start decorating shelves as rooms so i can hang them up bc i cant really find anywhere to put the room.
I used to keep my dolls (Meaning my Obitsu and Holly the knock-off) on my desk or on a small bookshelf but they were always falling over and such. When I got into MH I began making plans for a bit of a doll 'apartment/dormroom' and cleaned a shelf off for all my BJD and other doll stuff. Now instead of my desk I keep Ghoulia, Haruka, Riven and Holly there with their own furniture which is mostly mixed up. (Flea-market finds, a chair that was meant to be a cellphone holder and a little Bratz couch.) I'm still working on getting yet another shelf cleaned off.
My dolls live in a box except Draculaura she live in her coffin.
