I did my diorama on my favourite childhood tv show Fraggle Rock!

Here's the final picture


I used modeling dough for the heads and arms.


Yarn for the hair and I painted the eyes on, the bodies are made of wound up yarn.


here's the background before i placed everyone in (i spray painted it grey and then sprinkled sparkles on.)


close-up of Gobo (his shirt is wound around embroidery thread.)


close-up of Mokey (her clothes are made of felt.)


here's Boober (i had to make tiny little pompoms for his entire body *pheww* exausghting)


here's Wembly (his shirt is made of felt and i painted on the designs)           

And my personal favourite Red (she was the first doll I made so her body is a bit different)


no Fraggle Rock diorama would be complete without a doozer (i used some sorta plastic tag clips to make the Doozer tower.)


it was a lot of work but i've been wanting to do a Fraggle Rock project for some time, this challenge just gave me a good reason to get to it. hope it brings you back to the good'ol days!

I totally loved that show! Great job Smiley

I was thinking of doing one with Smurfs, but got the idea way too late to actually do it.

Thanks for bringing back all my fond Fraggle Rock memories! Smiley

hey everybody thanks so much for all your GREAT comments! don't worry about not voting for moi..I think these little guys I made are kinda creepy myself, hee hee.

on another unrelated note, I just checked my profile to see if my age changed cause it's my b-day today and beside my age is a cute little piece of cake with a candle in it, how sweet of craftster to care.  Kiss

Thanks Monkeymaker! Smiley
When I finished them I didn't think they looked exactly like the characters but when you're looking at them for hours you get so critical of your own work.

Well anyway thanks to all of you who voted for me, I was like 4 votes away or something. Not that, that matters of course *sniff* *sniff*  Roll Eyes
