TADA's Revolution prints giveaway :)

Last week, we've received some TADA's Revolution marvelous goodies,  miniature bear "Flats" and  prints of his and his companions mug shots... and the 1/12 size replicas of the prints, fantastic presents of the wonderful Susan :).
As she included two sets in the package, I asked her if she was ok for a giveaway of the second set and she was :).

So, if you could have a look at TADA's Revolution films* and photos and share this little giveaway on the social media of your choice, please post a comment here (or FB or Flickr) and I'll do a little lottery with all the names :). Winner will receive these high quality mini-prints (my pictures are mostly out of focus but the prints are perfectly sharp reproductions of this picture and the following):

Here is a little photoshoot with a quick set-up to take pictures of Flats (and featuring the prints too, but I didn't have the time to make frames for them). This was made really quicker than I wanted, during my son's nap, but it was great fun to do :).

As you can see, Susan's tiny bears are really perfect 1/12 size dollhouse inhabitants (or 1/24 or 1/6 in fact, or whatever, they are just great :D). Quick shot with a Picco Neemo doll and a ruler in centimeters :

Little bears lke Flats are released in limited quantities so stay tuned by clicking "Like" on TR's FB Page or follow TR's Flickr and be the first to know.  As, for those who would like to own a little piece of the Revolution, from time to time, some little creatures like Flats will pop-up quickly, and lovely little pieces of furniture might make short appearance to on  TADA's Revolution Etsy Shop but high quality prints of all Susan's photos are available at all time, which is a relief, isn't it ? (I was so happy to receive my prints !)

* Susan makes the most amazing stop motion films featuring her creations :

Picco Neemo

I know it has been a terribly long time since the latest update and that I still owe you a mini Sea Otter plushie tutorial. The truth is I've not found the teenie-tiny plastic envelop in which is supposed to be the pattern since I've home moved, which is driving me crazy.
I'll eventually find it, but in the meanwhile, I promise other tutorials and patterns.
If there are knitters reading me, I've just finished a woolen dress in 1/12 scale for my new little doll, and I'm happy to share the pattern with you, I just realize I have to calculate the gauge and take a picture of my needles as I have no idea which size they are (which would help...).
But first, here is a little about the Azone Picco Neemo doll :).

This girl is an Azone Picco Neemo Snotty Cat Koron (and her Tokidoki cactus friend who, as the cat he is, had to be on the picture). These little dolls are dollhouse scale (the following ruler is in centimeters) :
fully articulated (starting this point, pictures are copyright of Azone International and are not mine any more) :
and with changeable hands :
which make them true little gems if you like anime style, which I really do :).
And, they also have a forever-extending available 1/12 wardrobe that could be of use by itself too :

(oops the right page of second image is about 1/6 scale outfits).
Being a doll lover, I'm really hooked :).
You can pre-order the new releases through shops like Hobby Search, but I've found mine at a decent price on Amazon.com (prices increase very quickly after the pre-order period). I've read on the Majokko Shop blog that Tasina is a good shop for the little outfits.

Hope to update very soon with directions for the tiny sweater, it's fun to knit :).
Take care !
