Paper Boats, Cardboard Castles, and Golden Maps

 So heres some paper boats I have made as part of the set  for my film, strung up from the ceiling :)

 Pea Green Boat :D
 This one is my favourite, I love the big pirate ship style sails :)
 By the way, the messy walls are due to these lovely little boats being strung up in my Uni room...very messy and stuffed with props...
 This is a cardboard castle I is meant to have been made by a nine year old, so it's allowed to be a little scruffy ;)

This is a beautiful map of Asia that I picked up for free! The black surface is like blackboard, nd before I pimped it up with gold glitter there was chalk drawings all over the countries. The glitter glue I used ws about a pound, so the full thing cost me around two quid ;) Thrifty or what! :)

More bits and props coming soon :)

They're super cute arent they! we want to pva glue the bottom of one of them to make it a bit waterproof and see if it sails :) Well, briefly its set on new years eve, 1999, about a little girl whose scared of the Millenium and growing up, so she tries to capture the essence of 1999 and her childhood into a little bottle :) just started building the set for it, I'm sooo excited!
