How was your weekend? Mine was very busy getting ready for the Lunar New Year! 2014 will be the year of the Horse and the first day will be on January 31st! I still have a good 2 weeks until then but there are much to do so I feel a little out of breath running around to get things done.
I somehow managed to get 30 minutes on Saturday to snap a few picture of a miniature Lion I saw in a store and I knew it would be an awesome prop for my Sylvanian Families! It is attached on a drum with metal wires. I cut the wires so the head could be used by my scenes.
It is very nicely made with tons of details just like a real Lion.
The back has not been neglected either and it's very colorful!
It is too big for a child Sylvanian figure but it fits an adult figure. Here below you see the Norwood Mouse Family and the Mulberry Raccoon Family participate in a typical dance. Money is placed in a red envelope and hung at the end of a pole. The Lion will try to "eat it".
Children are usually very excited for the Lion dance and they also get money in the red envelope! I created them by printing miniature envelopes with a color printer.
Can you see Father Mouse's eyes in the Lion head?
I have some more miniature items related to the Lunar New Year to show you! But it will have to wait for the next free time I get! Hopefully I can set up a display soon! Have a good week!
