I had a hand at making props for a made-for-tv movie being shot locally here in July called “Christmas With Holly”. It was challenging but fun. I designed and created 3D soft sculptures, mostly for the toy store set but also the teddy bear, Duffy, for the little girl lead. In the end I had to make triplets – 3 identical bears as they hired twins for the one lead role and one bear was a stunt bear.
I felt like a ‘mom’ again (my two daughters are now adults) as I created fairy wings, mobiles, elves and a Santa.
There were eight elves with movable arms and legs to fit into a toy ferris wheel, plus four other elves with Santa watching the fun.
Ah yes, time to be thinking about Christmas and gifts and possibly a Christmas faire to sell some joyful things.
