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
