Witch Dollhouse

Amazingly intricate dollhouse of three stories by Gayle Palama. Ignore the first two photos. These are close-up photos of each floor of the dollhouse. The amount of work that went into the furniture and goods and decor of these rooms is truly astonishing. Hover on a photo and a short title will pop up. I found this blog of hers which may provide more info. Annadancie

Wow, that's really impressive work. Getting the tile floors to look believably "broken" is way harder than it looks, too.

LOL at the teeny octopus.

(Back to bricking the dollhouse in my basement...)

I'm sorry. I don't think I can do that...

Cool! Reminded me somewhat of the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death.

I think there's even a dollhouse in the dollhouse in the dollhouse; you just have to look really really closely.

This is amazing and I want to know more about how it was made.

Jenny Lawson has also made an amazing haunted dollhouse!

There's a lot of cheap off-the-shelf minis here. I think her art is in the curation and the (lack of) lighting. She's got a really good aesthetic, but she's not spending as much money as you might think.

In the UK dolls houses underwent a mini-boom a couple of decades back, but IMO the hobby is slowly dying. The makers are retiring, the brands are consolidating, and the trade shows are smaller.

If anyone's inspired, I recommend starting out with simple dioramas before moving on to an American-style house (I'm personally a fan of Greenleaf). They open in more interesting ways than the standard UK-style front-opening Georgian, giving you more opportunities to create sight lines, stories and exploration.

And if you've got more cash than you know what to do with, there's always Mulvany and Rogers.

Amazingly well done. In the place where I live, a charming lady has produced a sufficient number of tiny room replicas to open a museum.
