I’ve been building the Game of Thrones, Iron Throne for 4 months now and I am hoping I will get it finished by this weekend.
I’ve been working on and off it for so long. It’s looking amazing though but it’s just taken so much of my time that I need to get it completed.
When I make things, I always put 110% into everything I do. I love my work as you all know but sometimes, when you have been working on something for this long, you just want it finished and out of the way.
My official Studio opening is this weekend. 7.30pm at Revue Studios, Castle Square, Swansea on the 2nd of August. It’s meant to be an informal event so I’m trying to not get too stressed over it. Prop Maker Wales Grand Opening
It’s going to be a brilliant night and one I hope everyone will remember and enjoy for all the right reasons. Then next weekend all my props are being show cased in Margam Castle for the Heroes & Legends Autograph Show where my Game of Thrones Throne, my Star Ship Enterprise and a few other lovely and amazing items will be on display and some even for sale. I am so looking forward to it. We go every year and every year it emits well worth it 😀
Today I had a meeting with some colleagues regarding the Grand Opening. This included my 4 year old son and my wonderful husband, plus a bag of freshly made hot doughnuts. What a combination.
We had plenty to discuss. First on the agenda was what we wanted to gain from this. The answer, to gain more business, more clientele, get our name out there, and to show what sort of things we do. Then it was the display we wanted to have. We had a lot of choices, and ideas for this. And it made me realise how much work I have leading up to this event. Then the next stage was the marketing of my business and the event. Again, this was a very interesting topic, and how we would go about it, plus grants, loans and so on.
So now, I have to start putting all these ideas into practice which isn’t going to be easy, but it is going to be a brilliant challenge indeed.
Watch this space 😉
Where do I start with planning a grand opening?
I’m worried that the guests who turn up are going to be thinking it’s going to be all grand, posh, very formal, and well-to-do because it’s not going to be lol. There will be a buffet, and bubbly but that’s about it lol. It’s just going to be a lot of fun and very informal.
I have asked my friend to do a bit of stand up comedy for the evening but feel guilty for asking him lol.
Anyone got any ideas? I’ve got my friend popping over to my studio this afternoon to have a chat about what can be done. Going to take in a few TVs from the house to have some things on display.
All my items on display and maybe il have a Iron Throne for our guests to have a seat.
Once it’s all over its on to wind street for some more drinks and a bit of a boogie lol.
So, that’s all I’ve got so far, feel free to spread the word, August the 2nd at 7.30pm at Revue Studios, Castle Square, Swansea.
These Gargoyle wings are not far off being finished. I’m shattered but I am completely thrilled with them so far.
Today, I added 2 claws, and I started applying the spines on one of the wings. I have added a layer of thick latex to each part of the wings, so they will move well with the performer and not tear or rip. I still have a lot to do but I am now really enjoying it far more then I thought lol.
I’ve also been informed that the Evening Post will apparently be attending my opening of my studio so that’s good, plus I have a friend of mine visiting my studio tomorrow to help me with a few things for the opening too. It’s all go go go here 🙂
I have decided to have a grand opening of my Studio in Swansea. What I want to do is get as much done as I can before it and then I will have far more to display on the night. All are welcome. There will be a £2 entry fee PP but this will include a buffet and drinks for our guests.
Then after the opening is over it’s in to Wine street to continue the celebrations.
It will be held on August the 2nd at 7.30pm at Revue Dance Studios, Swansea.
I would prefer children not to attend because of the delicate nature of the props on display. Feel free to pop in on the night to discuss business, props, ideas or just to take a look and meet the team. It’s going to be a brilliant night.
Spread the word xxxx
