I asked Jo Medvenics of Pocket Pygmies to create a character for my current Honeydukes project. I wanted Mrs Flume to embody the sugar and spice of the 1950's with a witchy twist.
As you can see Jo has excelled herself with this wonderful character who will eventually welcome all the students of Hogwarts into her sweet shop.
She certainly has the shape of every 1950's movie star with the cutsie motherly look I so wanted.
Her skirt has a haunted house pattern that will work perfectly with the interior colours of Honeydukes.
The welcoming smile will ensure all her customers enjoy their visit.
Jo's dolls are such a pleasure to own as each one is completely unique. Jo takes such care with each individual component of their costume which makes each one a treasure.
The false dormer windows are on the back of the roof at last. I have fitted these first as if I have any problems these won't be on show and they will be good practice for the front windows which are essentially the ones that are seen all the time. I have also left space for the tall chimney stack.
Two mistakes I have definitely made in my eagerness to see if they worked are: I forgot to stick in the glazing so now I have to add the 'glass' in situ and all these windows are to be filled with sweets and lollipops........the windows would have been much easier to dress before gluing to roof.
So now I can get on with the chimney stacks. I am going to glue on the brick slips before I attach the stacks to the roof as I think this will be easier to do on the worktop because of the steep angle of the roof.
I have also decided to go with the slate for the roof, no more procrastinating onwards and definitely upwards!!
