Halloween in Miniature 5: A Pink Halloween!

Welcome to Day 5 of our virtual Halloween party! The 12 Days of Halloween in Miniature is going strong. You're not too late! You can still check in at the beginning of the party here.

Today, as it's also Pink Saturday over at Beverly's blog, I thought I'd introduce you to a few more party guests, including a few who are thinking Pink!

**(Perfect as October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month!)**


Most of us, of course, associate Halloween with the traditional black and orange colors. This witch and little girl dressed in a cute pumpkin costume certainly fit the bill.

This perfect rendition of the Holiday theme is by New Jersey miniaturist Camille Townsend. Cam has been making miniature dolls for 14 of her 17 years collecting miniatures.

Cam pours, dresses and china paints miniature porcelain dolls for her own scenes and says it "totally absorbs my mind and I'm truly a happy camper when I'm creating." (And isn't that what it's all about?)

But no matter the holiday, some things are better suited to PINK. How about this miniature rat with a pink cape, or a fun Halloween mask of a cute dog face - yes in pink.


Party in Pink

A few guests got "in the Pink" and dressed to show it!

How about the ultimate "Pink Lady?" I mean the lovely Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, as portrayed by the beautiful Billie Burke in the Wizard of Oz? This gorgeous miniature version is also by Cam Townsend.

The lady with her pink boa (pictured above) by Nancy Cronin definitely knows how to get "in the pink!"

And what better way to celebrate pink than with a lovely pink tea set?


These wonderful witches, hand-sculpted and poured in resin by Nancy Cronin, certainly think so! The scene was inspired by an old photo. (Ooh, and Nancy says that she is working on an online workshop centered on this scene, so stay tuned for details sometime around January!)

** October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - click daily at the Breast Cancer site to give women in need free mammograms.

** A fun change: How about a pink Halloween?
