BBC Silkstone Mad Men Roger Sterling has arrived!

Well, he arrived LAST week, but I was too busy in the shop to take decent photos...these were done on the fly with what props I had on hand. Roger has decided that he likes the ease of a comfy leather wingchair in the library, all that is missing is his favorite book, martini and his after hours & of course cigarettes, can't forget the ashtray and cigs...
This doll, is simply marvelous on the detail of his suit. If only Mattel understood that our dolls want men who DRESS, for cocktails, dinner, balls, etc. and not like 5 o'clock somewhere. Poor Ken...he doesn't have a job or a car, but my girls will go nuts over Roger....even if he is rather older with that molded vinyl hair!
I want to do a diorama scene in the dollhouse, using Uncle Giles, & Pierre, and whatever manly dolls are laying about, for a 'board' meeting with Agnes at the helm, and her cousin, Agatha. Should be quite interesting, with Roger watching someo f the assistant's with their tight sheaths, etc. lol...I hope to get that in gear soon.Enjoy the pics!

More Mickey & Minnie Re-ment....

My Rement obsession with the Disney sets had arrived after I got back from my trip...I am going to be slowly collecting this entire set, as I love the tiny cakes, pies, etc. This set is adorable. So I wouldn't cut into the cutouts that come with it for the signage, I copied them on my scanner on parchment paper and applied to the little sign holders. The Mickey figure is not Re-ment, something I picked up in my travels. I am planning a Mickey and Minnie diner/cafe with all of the Disney Rement, which is quite ambitious. I am thinking of doing it in 1:6 scale, since the little tables are in that scale and would look too large for a 1:12 scale cafe...but will go with my tiny bjd's just as well, they will just look like kids sitting in the chairs. My DollFactory Mouse Bobo 2nd edition is on layaway, so my Bobo will be head of the diner. Well, off to order more Re-ment!~Lisa
