This makes me really nostalgic. When I was younger, my mom gave me all her old Barbie stuff and this shop was one of the things she gave me.
i feel like dollhouse scale gets more/nicer stuff than playscale and playscale furniture is harder to find in the first place nnnnuuuuuuurgh
Hugs for the playscale lovers! I think it doesn’t get the love as much because a) it takes up more space and b)Because its the Barbie scale its seen as more for playing and less for collecting (which is bs).
Anyways, I thought I’d put up some playscale resources for you all.
Regent Miniatures: If you haven’t been following some of the projects they’ve been doing, you’ve been missing out. Definitely proves that playscale is not just for kids.
Mini Treasures Wiki Page: Lots of links to explore.
ELF Miniatures: They do modern furniture, kitchens, and bathrooms in a variety of scales.
Playscale Minis: A shop specializing in playscale accesories.
The one advantage playscale does have is that there is a ton of mass produced furniture out there at things like garage sales, just waiting for you to customize it. This is a great basic tutorial on spray painting it.
Also, don’t be afraid to adapt 1:12 tutorials to playscale. In most cases, you can just double the measurements.
1:6th Scale miniature Eames inspired elliptical table in classic brown and natural for Barbie, Blythe, etc.
Tropical drinks for dolls. According to a friend they are 1/6th size? All I know it they are the perfect size for Monster High dolls xD
Liquid Fimo, glass, toothpicks and clay. No idea if these look realistic at all lol
Last week I was working on some props for an upcoming doll diorama of mine. Among them were these 50 miniature books in 1/6th scale (Licca, Blythe, Momoko, Barbie, etc). :) That was a loooot of folding and gluing!
Miniatures in playscale are not nearly as common as typical 1/12th dollhouse items, hence me doing my own props! I had fun picking the sort of covers for books I wanted displayed on little shelves. It was important the books were on diverse topics. Many are scans of my own books, sized down to miniature scale.
There’s Anne Frank (my love for her knows no bounds), Alice in Wonderland, vintage science fiction, ghost stories, childrens fairy tales, cooking books, dictionaries, craft and sewing books, manga, and so on. Lots of books a dolly would be interested in. :)
I have to say I am constantly amazed at what the playscale people make.
