A Very Chibi Thanksgiving Dinner by Marielishere A Very Chibi Thanksgiving Dinner by Marielishere
Fall has to be my most favorite season of the year! It marks the beginning of my favorite holidays: Halloween and Thanksgiving leading all the way up to Christmas and New Years!!! And we mustn't forget the biggest shopping day of the year... Black Friday!

I grew up in a military family, so having all my loved ones all together at one place at any given time is kinda a big deal! I have recreated what you might find walking into Thanksgiving dinner at my house ... in Chibi form of course!

All Chibi's (family members :D) and food items are made out of polymer clay. Most of the food is textured and colored with either chalk pastels or acrylic paints, and glazed for added effects :). Wallpaper, windows, and photo frames are scrapbooking paper. Furniture items are wooden dollhouse furniture that I put together and painted. This took quite a lot of effort and definitely more time than I planned, but I'm happy with how it turned out! The Ham is my favorite :D

I hope you like!

I'm so shocked that you're not in the 25 finalists, I even saw you as one of the three winners. However, your work is still one of my favorites.

hehe If I were you I would be confused, I would feel its awesome to win, yet I won't want to cause I'll feel sorry to send this masterpiece away :( Kinda funny I told myself I'll wait till mid October & if there is no good entries, I'll try my luck, yours convinced me not to. I would never top that, not even in another life. Your entry is simply EPIC :faint:

Lol, yeah I figured if I didn't win, at least I'd have a nice lil decorative display for Thanksgiving to show my friends and family. You should still make your diorama, I would hate to think that anyone backed out of the contest because of my silly piece. You never know what the judges are looking for! ;)

yup but between yours & this [link] mine will be a far cry. As this [link] was my first encounter with clay & dioramas.

I really wish you good luck, yours is simply amazing & lovely.... beautiful.

oh :love: Thank you so much, its great to know that somebody likes it :tighthug:. Yes I made the house from white A4 paper, painted it then scratched it for some texture. I didn't make the roof though. I made People & rocks with fimo clay. Kinda proud of it as a first attempt with these stuff.

Your welcome, I can appreciate artist who work with this kind of stuff. It's sometimes hard to get the clay to do what you want it to. I definitely still have a lot to learn! Great job!
