Yep, so I’ve got Mark slaving away inserting windows and making me (YES!!) 2 doors to use in the dioramas. This makes me a very happy chickie 😀 Ok, so while he’s slaving away doing that (YAY!) I was trying to think up of different layouts I can use for the walls/room sets.
This is what I’ve come up with for the Dorm room dioramas:
This is the old dorm room set (geared for Karly & Astrid)
It’s kind of important that I can get as many permutations as possible out of that one since I have a lot of students who obviously have to live in a dorm room. 😉 *and while it’s true I may not have lots of scenes set in all of their rooms, it’s nice to have that option!* Some of these set-ups would depend on the students getting along/being good friends.
So that’s the basic ideas for the dorm room….
Next let’s talk about the base walls for the Student Lounge:
It looks a bit bare for the moment because I have to work out how the things I have will work in it. I also need to make a couch for it. So for right now all I know is that the room has 2 windows and a door! 😛 And when I get around to it (provided I left enough room) I’ll be making a 1/6 soda machine. You gotta have one of those, right?
This is the old dorm room set:
This one is different, obviously, but I’m still looking for that kind of flavor to it.
So once that’s figured out it’ll be great! Annnnnd depending on how I do the window treatments (Blinds? Curtains?) I could possibly use this as a student dorm room. Maybe for some special student, or as an upperclassmen room. Maybe?
And of course, the Professors’ Office / Academic Office:
It’s a shared wall with the Student Lounge. I’m thinking the windows for the academic office will need to be blinds or something similar. I have the 4 wooden book cases that Mark made me back in 2010
And I think that I might have at least 2 versions of the offices so I can swap out which professors are in which, etc.
Anywho: after the doors & windows are inserted I get to paint the walls and stuff and begin the process of making and collecting all the stuff I need to actually “fill” the sets! Woo!
