Dressing the Empire

I got some good skills, but sewing isn’t one of them. So I found some support on the German Fashion Doll Forum Thanks to Alegra for advertising my work. And of course I have to thank Inge and Nina for their work on the costume design. You did a great job folks.

Part I – Plebs
And here are some pictures from the first dress rehearsal.
What’s the best place to present some plebs? Yes, the termopolio around the corner. The figures are not all final. They will get sandals and some pretty belts too. And I have to work on some of the giraffe necks. Click on the image to see the dress rehearsal pictures.

Pushcart

And a little update for the roman vehicles. I used balsa wood for the main construction. The wheels are made from Heki-Dur glued on CD-spindles.
