Spuffy S10

Buffy and Spike's bedroom diorama

Hey, how are you all doing? I'm having some time off work (well, more or less) and finally finding the time to post some things to LJ. Starting with the shoebox diorama of Buffy and Spike's bedroom that I made for the Summer Solstice free-for-all over at seasonal_spuffy. With thanks to teragramm for the term “diorama” term, which sounds a bit grandiose to my ears, but so much better than “peepbox” which I used originally.

Making Of the Shoebox Diorama Part 1: Research

In this part I’ll talk about the preparatory research that was the first step of making the shoebox diorama for seasonal_spuffy (see my previous post).

Before I could physically make the diorama – the crafty stuff follows in the next part – I needed to figure out what to make exactly. Given the theme I’d chosen for the shoebox diorama (Buffy and Spike watching TV in bed together), I knew from the start that I wanted to use this image as the centre piece:
