THE CINEMA SERIES, PART 1 OF 3

WANNA SEE SOMETHING COOL?!!!
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.....

DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER THIS MOVIE? THAT'S RIGHT RICK MORANIS AS SEYMOUR KRELBORN!!! 
I WAS SO TAKEN WITH THE FLORIST'S SHOP! IT WAS SORTA IN THE BACK OF MY MIND TO MAKE IT IN MINIATURE. THEN ONE DAY.......

I CAME ACROSS A MINIATURE VERSION OF THE FILM'S TRUE STAR...
THE AUDREY II, MANEATING PLANT FROM OUTER SPACE! IT WAS AT JEANETTA KENDALL'S TABLE AND I HAD TO HAVE IT!!! I STILL TELL DALE THEY OWE ME THE $750.00 I SPENT TO BUILD A SHOP AROUND IT!!!

SO FOUR MONTH'S (AND $750.00!!!) LATER, HERE IT IS....
MUSHNIK'S FLORIST, AKA "LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS"!
OK, I KNOW IT'S A TWISTED STORY, BUT SO VERY ENTERTAINING! AND THE SHOP IS JUST FAB AS A MINIATURE!!! 
I BUILT THIS SHOP IN 1998, AND IT'S STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE PIECES! I USED A KIT FROM THE "STREET OF SHOPS" LINE, THE CORNER STORE MODEL. EASY PEASY BUILD TOO! THEY GO TOGETHER SO NICELY!

HERE'S A FEW MORE PICS SHOWING SOME OF THE DETAIL....

LEFT SIDE FRONT WINDOW WITH THE AUDREY II. THIS IS BEFORE HE BECAME TOO BIG, HE WAS JUST DRINKING BLOOD FROM SEYMOUR'S FINGERS AT THIS STAGE!
(GEE, THAT SOUNDS TWISTED!!!)

RIGHT SIDE WIDOW WITH SOME PLANTS I MADE!

FULL INTERIOR VIEW, I EVEN COPIED THE GREEN AND WHITE CHECK FLOOR!

COUNTER AREA WITH A PRETTY BOUQUET OF ROSES! SEE THE GREAT FRIDGE IN THE BACK?!

COOL PAYPHONE, HUH?!!! THERE'S EVEN A CUP ON TOP OF THE FRIDGE WITH MY NAME ON IT!

WALL BEHIND THE COUNTER WITH THE FIRST GRAPEVINE WREATH I EVER MADE!

THE FLOWER COOLER WAS THE BEST PART OF THIS BUILD FOR ME! I MADE IT FROM SCRATCH JUST LOOKING AT PICS ONLINE! IT EVEN HAS GLASS SHELVES AND LIGHTS THAT WORK!!! SHOULDA PLUGGED IT IN FOR THE PICS!

HEY, THEY HAD TWO PHONES IN THE MOVIE TOO! I LOVE THE OLD RADIO AND LONG NOSED WATERING CAN!

TWO MORE UNUSUAL PLANTS! ONE HAS A TINY FAIRIE SITTING IN THE BASKET, AND THE OTHER IS A TEDDY BEAR IN A POT!!!

LAST SHOT OF THE LEFT SIDE.......
AND FINALLY ~ 

LAST PIC OF THE RIGHT SIDE. I HAD A GREAT TIME PAINTING THE SIDEWALK AREA TO LOOK KINDA GRUNDGY! MATTER OF FACT HERE'S A CLOSEUP! 

KINDA COOL HUH?! I SMOOSHED ON SOME GESSO AND THEN USED A WASH OF GREEN, IVORY, AND BROWN PAINT RESPECTIVELY, WITH JUST A TEENSY TOUCH OF BLACK. COOL PIDGEON TOO!

THAT'S ALL FOR NOW!!! COME ON BACK SOON! I'VE DONE MINIATURES FROM 2 OTHER MOVIES (NO HINTS!!!), AND I'LL SHOW THOSE VERY SOON!
