Let me tell you a Tale...

Fans and customers often ask me what I do when I am not making miniatures for Pixie Dust Miniatures to sell to collectors.

Well I thought it might make a good post topic!

When I'm not making minis here or working as a VFX artist, I work at a small production company (which I actually founded) called Tall Tales Productions. We make miniature model sets and character sculpts for other production companies and some private collectors also.

We're currently working on our own short film called 'Myrtle the Witch' which is being made using several miniature sets and hand-sculpted characters made by us to our own designs. We're filming it here in Los Angeles using green screens and adding visual effects. It will be available in 3D also.

So, if you're interested in seeing miniatures in motion and miniature filmmaking, then follow the Tall Tales blog or find us on Facebook and stay connected! The main website is here.

The Pixie has Landed

Hello everyone,
Yes I know... it's been absolutely ages since you heard from me and my online Pixie Dust Miniatures shop remains closed at this time... sorry!

As you probably know, I had to close this shop (and other shop) for a few weeks whilst I had the messy move from NZ to UK to US with plenty of Embassy meetings, packing, flying and landing going on around this time. Well... the Pixie has landed! 

So, please note that Pixie Dust Miniatures is back in Los Angeles, California and will be re-opening in just a few more days (keep your eye on this blog, or the shop or on the Facebook page so you know when) and I'll be launching some fun new miniature magic ranges, furniture, a free-to-enter competition and a new coupon to apologize for my absence!

As usual, feel free to email me if you have any questions!
Warmest wishes, Caroline
