I don't remember the exact year that I made it, but I do remember he was in high school. He's now 22.....you can do the math.
The other day I asked him to take pictures of it for me so I could share it with all of you. At one time I had taken pictures but I have since lost them. Glad he was willing to help.
|This is my brother Matt. This was taken a year|
or so ago. As you can see he has long hair.
When I made the roombox, it was not this long
but was getting there.
I started with an inexpensive diorama base that you can buy at Michael's and painted it blue. His room is blue. Not sure it's the same colour blue, but I didn't care. As long as it was blue. Here are the pictures. Keep in mind, I made this many years ago. My skills as a miniaturist were not exactly what you would call good.....haha. So be kind :)
This picture shows you the whole roombox. As mentioned above I painted it blue, and I do believe I used a piece of felt for the carpet.
|The diorama base at a place to put a label, so I put Matt's Room.|
This is a picture of the right side of the room. Matt is a Leafs fan, so I made sure that the room had something in it that showed that......so I put a blue and white Canadian flag. You can also see that there is a TV with a video game system and some DVDs, but I will show you more of those in another picture.
This next picture is a quick view of the left side of the room. Matt being a fan of Family Guy, I made sure to put something in the room. The Stewie poster was perfect.
Ok so now onto the little details. The next pictures are close ups, and explanations!
|This is just a better picture of the right side of the room. |
Some of the movies that he liked at the time of making the room.
Superbad and the Simpsons. You can also see that the room is just
|Laundry basket on the floor with clothes that should be put away.|
also a bottle of coke, another dirty glass, and an empty bag of chips.
|I tried to make the room look a little realistic with the light swith|
plate and the wall plugs. Here you can see the TV, and the video
game system. I do believe the game on the TV is Halo, a game that
he liked at the time.
Ok, now we will move onto the left side of the room.
|Here you can see the pizza on the floor. He loves Pizza, so I had|
to have pizza in the room. Also put some games under the bed.
The denim backpack hanging on the bed displays the crest from
the school he was attending at the time.
|Showing this picture again. Notice there is a pillow on the bed |
but also another on the floor. When I put this together I imagined
he had that on the floor so he could be more comfy while
eating his pizza and playing video games.
|I tried to make the bed look like it was being used. I think |
I did a good job.
|Well that's it. Here's the whole room again.|
So that is the story of my brother......you see the calendar is on August, so he's off for the summer. Had an all-nighter playing video games and eating pizza. Went to bed without turning the TV off or cleaning up the food.......bad Matthew.
