Miniature David Bowie , KDF and a trip to the V&A to see the Bowie exhibition !

Just back from Miniatura in very snowy Birmingham ! Lovely to see friends and old customers and make some new ones there . Now I am busy getting ready for the next of the spring fairs Kensington Dollshouse Festival May 11th and 12th .

I'm really looking forward to the weekend , and especially as we are planning a trip to the V & A museum to see the David Bowie exhibition there.

I have been a huge Bowie fan since I was a very young girl and  cant wait to see his costumes and memorabilia.  He has changed his looks like a chameleon over the years but I think the most iconic of his looks was during  his Aladdin Sane phase
I really enjoyed creating this miniature Aladdin Sane figure. originally he had bare feet but I felt something wasnt quite right so yesterday spent the day working on some platform boots for him and now he is just as I want him to be !
This figure will be available to purchase on my table at KDF .
I have a feeling after i have visited the exhibition I may well be inspired to make Bowie in a different guise this space !
