I wanted to do something special for Germany’s big Pride day, even though I couldn’t go to an event.
So I commissioned an array of gorgeous miniature ice creams and cakes from Nadia of Littlest Sweet Shop. She is a superb creator of artisan mini food, and she really pulled out all the stops!
Look how exquisite and beautiful they are!!
Every detail is perfect!! Including the tiny rainbow sprinkles on the Choco-Taco!
What a wonderful party!
I included some of the gay X-Men and New Mutants, including Rahne and Dani who are now CANONICALLY GAY in the New Mutants movie, and the lovely trans lady action figure customs I recently made. Northstar is chilling with ally Puck!
This was my first time making a good-sized commission from a miniature food artisan, and I was so lucky to work with Nadia!
Although I had the idea at the last minute, Nadia graciously accepted the commission and was an absolute dream to work with.
Nadia committed to the Pride theme 200%!
She carefully matched the colors from the Trans Pride and Bi Pride flags, as well as making all the foods from the same color “batches” so they would match. She sent me photos as she worked! And she took a lovely photo series herself, where you can really see the details.
For this one I sculpted Dani’s fringed boots with my beloved Apoxie Sculpt, then painted them with regular artist’s acrylic.
I sealed them with “Matte” Mod Podge which is reading really shiny so I will probably mask off Dani’s body and spray them with Liquitex Matte Varnish, which is what I use instead of Dullcote.
Anyway a quick version that looks ok! I wanted to use the “official” movie tie-in Dani Moonstar figure’s head on the weekend when the director and all the cast of the New Mutants movie were doing a panel talking about the film’s amazing queer love story.
The real stars of the shoot are the rainbow treats from Littlest Sweet Shop.
