Diorama Timelapse + Tutorial

Hello everybody! Today I have something more to share about the diorama I made. I know you have already seen it in photostories, but I wanted to do two more videos before being happy and "closing" the project for now.

The first one is a very special video to me: a timelapse of me setting it up with all the furniture and props I made. Since there are so many, the video contains two builds: one for Cookie and one for Merry. I also show how I store the props. Please forgive my clumsiness, as this was the very first timelapse I ever made.

The second video is a step-by-step tutorial. It only has photos, but I explain the two main types of furniture: the shelf and the stone kitchen. I used the shelf technique to make the bed, chairs, desk, table and hanging shelf. I had another idea for another kitchen, but never made it.

Both videos have voiceovers and subtitles. Here is the first one, and you will find the rest (and some useful links) under the cut.



The next video is the tutorial. However, I'm also linking some previous posts, videos and tutorials related to the diorama:




Well, my PC almost died rendering these things. The timelapse almost killed it, as apparently it was too much for her. And I had to render the tutorial twice because the sound was so wrong! Oh well, I hope you find these useful and/or entertaining.

Now I'm thinking that I should make a diorama for Coco and Venezia. It must be detachable because I don't have that many storage space, honestly. Will see. I can't make it now, though. Anyways, hope you are doing great! Any projects to share?

  1. Such beautiful and inspirational work! You should be proud of this! I think that you can achieve a lot of things making them by hand and with things that you have a home or can easily find at a store nearby.
    And a diorama for Coco and Venezia would be nice to follow! Hope that you can find a way to make it, later on!

  4. It's very satisfying to see the timelapse on how you set-up and create things somehow! I love all the little details, I think the dream catcher is one of my favorite little details you made!
