Dreamy Dioramas

I snapped these pics at a local fair not to long ago.  These dioramas are all incredibly well crafted, and there is a remarkable attention to detail. Just being detailed miniatures is an accomplishment in it's own right, but the styling of these sets really ups the ante and sets these mini spaces apart.

Old World Cafe
Given enough distance, this diorama looks startlingly real.  Even an air of gloom hangs over this sadly deserted cafe.

Country Kitchen
This photo is rather stalker-ish.  It's taken from a miniature Peeping Tom's perspective, from outside, pressed up against the window glass. Adorable!

My favorite detail is the chicken cookie jar and the parrot.  Birds...who can resist their kitschy and/or exotic charms?

Lux Flat
This is the most fabulous diorama, EVER! The luxury is enviable, and I'm willing to bet the person who made this resides in a hovel and lives vicariously through that madame.

Scary Carnival
This circus is B-A-N-A-N-A-S!  I dunno about you, but popcorn from a kangaroo vendor, no thank you!    And let's see, I can spot a drunken clown sitting on a turtle, and chimps on the might as well be a scene from It.


  1. There's something really spooky about these photo's!
    Like there is a ghost in them!

  2. Unintentionally eerie crafts are the best! :)
