Bellatrix Part 2

иконописПравославни икони I continue to revist some of my older projects.  This time, my Bellatrix skull necklace gets a redo.  I’d always wanted to do it in metal, and I’d purchased a couple of metal bird skull necklaces (where they cast a real bird skull) but they didn’t look right.   The WBshop even offered one for a […]

After months of delays, finally my Harry Potter Artefact box arrived.  I’d been looking forward to it, and tore open the usual white Noble Collection box with zeal.  The box itself didn’t disappoint.  At 11” x 8 ¼” x  1 ¾”, the its made of sturdy cardboard covered in coated paper.  Normally, I’m very put […]

The Muggles of Oshkosh

I’m proud to have works featured at Oshkosh Public Museum’s upcoming Mugglefest.   This event promises to be a month-long Harry Potter extravaganza.   The event organizers are not only die-hard Potter fans, but also extremely creative.   Based on what I’ve seen so far, this isn’t just a walk-around-and-look-at-stuff event.   Attendees can expect to be […]

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Not only was it hot, but also the park was teeming with scores of kids on their summer vacation.  I’d definitely only entertain visiting again if it […]

Videos of the Noble Collection Potter Pieces

Long-time Madame Malkins lurker and YouTuber RogueS0ck has posted a couple of videos profiling some of the Potter replicas Noble Collection has released. Once he gets warmed up he gives a nice review of the Horcrux ring and locket from the latest film.   The pieces are beautiful, but for accuracy’s sake, I prefer the locket […]

Of Mysterious Boxes

A while back, a bunch of lucky individuals who blog like the dickens about Neil Gaiman received mysterious boxes filled with all kinds of goodies related to the movie Coraline. I’m no stranger to the concept of mystery boxes having received and made (and currently making) some of my own. However, I’m in awe of […]

My infinitely cooler-than-me friend Tim sent me this awesome Comicon-only miniature version of the uber-expensive Goliathon 83 Infinity Beam Projector Raygun (part of the Dr. Grordbort collection). What makes it even cooler is that he had the raygun’s designer, Greg Broadmore, sign the box! Although lacking in the glass details of the original, the gun […]
