Coraline, the teeny sweaters and the evil buttons
(Photo from Randi Mason's Flickr account - see more photos there)
I have seen news of the teeny jumpers and gloves worn by Coraline (in the movie based on Neil Gaiman's wonderfully imaginative book) popping up on a few blogs and so I've jumped on the bandwagon (not very original I know but I couldn't resist).
You see, Coraline has the cutest clothes - tiny hand knitted gloves and sweaters made by Althea Crome, the sets are all beautifully handcrafted and if you watch the trailer it says it talks about a world created from hand, like "a forest of cherry blossom made from hand-painted popcorn and 500 handmade Scottie dogs that fill a theatre!" How could I resist such temptation....
Using stop motion animation to make the film means that all the little parts have to be made by hand - this sneak preview goes behind the scenes... with meticulous attention to detail as outlined in this article in Metropolismag.com.
You can see photos from the film here and marvel at Coraline's world.
