It's taken me a while to get round to making these and even longer to photograph them, but here in three-dimensional form are my characters' winnings from the Boxing Day meet of the Gibsonvale Hunt
, run by oakhollowd
back in December! Each horse and rider who placed in the competitive classes was awarded a digital rosette : Samson and Valiant took a green first place for Best Jumped, while Amyas and Horatio got a special mention in Best Turned Out (you can see the drawn versions here
Because a few of my characters have made the jump from written/drawn to fully cluttered miniature 1/12th scale room sets, I thought it'd be fun to make up the rosettes in 'real life' to add to some I'd already done - the multicoloured selection on the right hand side of the table aren't past prizes as this was my first ever participation in an HARPG event.
(Only the rosettes here are hand made by me, the furniture, trophy, and rug are bought dolls' house miniatures, but I did fill the glass-topped table with tiny gemstone specimens as Amyas is an impulsive collector of interesting pretty things
Because I thought it might be interesting for other mini-stuff-making friends and followers on here, I took this photo
halfway through making one of the rosettes, so you can see the technique of ribbon-folding I used to get the overlaps looking right, and stitching securely enough to stay
looking right once I pulled them into circles. It took a lot of trial and error to figure out the precise amount of zig-zag which worked, heh
