A good friend of mine got married back in September and I was honored to be asked by her to make something for her centerpieces. I occasionally paint tiny wooden peg people (the Peg Posse!) up to look like people or characters from movies/games/books/etc. and she asked if I could paint some for each of her tables at the reception. Each table was going to be themed after a different fandom that her and her now-husband (who is awesome just like she is <3) are into and there would also be some on the table where the two of them were seated.
Above are a couple photos of the tiny peg madness & the process and below are what sets I painted and photos of each of them!
Left 4 Dead – Bill, Louis, Zoey, Francis (This video game was something they bonded over a lot when they were first dating so these were the pegs for their table — and also why they are the only bigger ones).
A Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones – Dany, Tyrion, Jon Snow, Arya, Brienne
Star Trek – Kirk, Bones, Spock, Wesley Crusher, Picard
Star Wars – Chewbacca, Han, Leia, Luke, Carth, Revan
Doctor Who – 10th Doctor, 11th Doctor, Amy, Rose, 12th Doctor
Marvel – Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, Hulk
Lord of the Rings – Legolas, Gimli, Frodo, Arwen, Gandalf
Mass Effect – Shepard, Liara, Garrus, Kaidan, Wrex
Disney – The Beast, Belle, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy
Harry Potter – Dumbledore, Hermione, Harry, Ron, Ginny
Here are a few detail shots on some of the pegs. Tatooine dirt on Luke’s tunic, Corellian bloodstipes on Han’s pants and the rank insignia on Picard!
I’ve been wanting to paint more of these recently but I won’t be able to start on them until some point in the near future because the Zhobot household is going crazy getting ready for Halloween this weekend. This year we’re doing something a little different than we usually do – we’re getting married! 😉
We’ll be back with lots of new projects, photos and updates on all things zhobot.net when we return! (For example we have three Genii Locorum photos that we’re backed up with/haven’t posted yet since we’ve been so busy with this wedding thing!)
