Halloween Spooks, Ghouls and Zombies!
17 October 2014
You may notice that here at Dolls' House HQ, we are rathe keen on Halloween. In the past we've done fancy dress at work, apple bobbing, trick or treating and much more and that's just the full-scale people! The mini-people also get up to all sorts and offer lots of inspiration to create you're very own Halloween in mini. Read on for hints and tips to get your ghoulish side going this Halloween!
There are so many international traditions you can pull on for creating your Halloween in miniature. Perhaps you’ll go for a Mexican flavour and dress a doll to represent the Día de Muertos – Day of the Dead, or will you go all-out-North-American with open fancy dress, candy corn and pumpkins galore? If you want to stay on the UK shores you could show candles lit in every room (try the battery operated lights!
) and ‘Soul cakes’ waiting to be eaten by the family on All Souls Day.
Why not draw from literature and recreate Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein with a laboratory based in a conservatory
and use some finishing products
to fill the test tubes?
There are so many interesting ways to create a Halloween scene
we’re sure you’ll enjoy the miniatures we’ve got to help you, coffins, scythes, brooms and gargoyles, there’s plenty to chose from!
Pumpkins and Gargoyles!
