Ok, so I've recently developed a thing for dioramas/ curio cabinets/ found objects.  Basically I have always loved miniature things.  Anyway, here is the most recent thing that I made, my roommate and I have great fun coming up with things that my little fishies are saying.

In case you can't tell, the fish on the right is in an airplane (he's wearing one of those cool Amelia Earheart caps and goggles!).



And a close-up:


p.s. the star propellor really spins! 
p.p.s. I can't wait until I get photoshop and can actually put some good pictures on here.  This really looks much better in person!
*Edited: Yay for figuring out how to get up better pics!

That right there... is special.  I'll tell you right now that it would bring me hours of amusement.  You should try making a slot at the top, the entire length of the diorama, and putting in different random backrounds for the fish to talk about.  You could have a general diorama box that you could change randomly at will.
Kinda like a puppet show... only not... (Did that make sense...?  I thought not.)  It looks like fun, anyway.

recently I've developed an interest in dioramas, I wanna make a dinosaur one with them all fleeing from a meteor. 

For some odd reason though, whenever I tell people about this, they look at me like I have 15 heads

Yeah, the same thing happens here.  I actually think there's a ton of artistic merit in them; they're really just 3-D collages.  It's kind of like the "hipslinger" vs. "fanny-pack"- I bet if we say "3-D mixed media art" instead of "diorama," people will fall in love. 

Definitely make it and post, I already have some cool ideas for one based on the myth of Leda and the swan.  I got my inspiration to work on these from the shoebox art galleries here: http://www.zymoglyphic.org/galleries.html

You know, I bet you're right with the whole 3-d mixed media thing, I'm gonna have to start calling them that instead.  NOw all I have to do is go out and buy my mini dinos

I was thinking that it would be really neat if you made a sceen inside a covered box and then just had a little peep-hole to look in.  If you make this...   I want to see pictures!

Dude! Diorama Nostalgia!!! I love them and i haven't done one since... ages!!!

I remember, in eighth grade we had to make a diorama for different ecosystems, the thing was, it wasn't an open box diarama like the kind i was used to, but it was better, we closed the box and but a clear plastic like cellophane square on top and a peep hole on the side... the plastic "window" let light in so when you looked through the hole you could see everything, it was really neat and i liked looking at everyone else's stuff, it's like looking at a picture but 3D... i think i might do this again....
