Set Building: s.p.o.t.s office & dance studio

We have been quite busy this month designing and constructing the new s.p.o.t.s inspired rooms! We have completed a few of the rooms and are ready to share the BTS of our building process, including blueprints, Amazon links, and more. In this post, we’ll be showcasing our first two finished rooms, the s.p.o.t.s office and dance studio.

ABOUT THE DECOR

All of the s.p.o.t.s dolls have a signature color that we associate them with. Jo’s signature color is red, so we designed the dance studio to feature red decor.

We wanted each of the rooms to have a specific stand-out element in it. For the dance studio, we decided to create mini marquee letter lights, using 3” free-standing wood letters from Amazon. The letters originally came in white and we painted them red for the room, adding silver gems with hot glue to appear as the lights.

Another feature we added to the studio is the mirror wall. We purchased a reflective vinyl decal film sheet from Amazon as well and covered one of the two walls of the studio to act as the mirror. We will provide links for our two Amazon purchases below.

ROOM CONSTRUCTION

The studio was built as a basic box room foam board structure for easy storing. We went with a white brick design to keep the room simple but add some texture to the background for photos.

Room Measurements

• 2 15” x 15” (Walls)

• 15” x 15” (Floor)

Genie Crafts White Wood Letters

Redodeco Self Adhesive Mirror Like Reflective Chrome Silver Vinyl Wrap Sticker Decal Film Sheet

ABOUT THE DECOR

The stand-out element of the s.p.o.t.s office is the black and white original s.p.o.t.s team mural. The picture from the mural was taken in 2019 when the s.p.o.t.s team was fully formed. That specific photo shoot was very special to us because it was one of our first group photo shoots that we ever did, so we brought that photo into the office and turned it into the mural.

Another special piece of the office is the custom black and white chevron floor, hand-drawn and colored with black sharpie.

And the office would not be complete without a hint of s.p.o.t.s signature color, hot pink. The two-seater couch was constructed a while back and was repurposed to sit in the office with some simple black throw pillows for comfort.

One of the top phrases that we like to use for s.p.o.t.s is “girl boss”, so we created a large wall decal with those very words in gold and added some gold decor to match it, including a kitty square spiral coffee table and some arrows for the wall.

ROOM CONSTRUCTION

Just like the dance studio, the office was built as a basic box room foam board structure for easy storing. We went with a white brick design to keep the room simple but add some texture to the background for photos.

Room Measurements

• 2 15” x 15” (Walls)

• 15” x 15” (Floor)

We still have a few more rooms to build and we can’t wait to show them when they’re finished!

We hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for more posts throughout the rest of the month!

mini shopping haul

It’s the holiday season and we are feeling all kinds of holiday spirit at s.p.o.t.s! Our s.p.o.t.s loft has been transformed into a cool Christmas atmosphere thanks to some fun Christmas finds that we were able to get our hands on.

Christmas Tree

Our loft would not be complete for Christmas unless we purchased a Christmas tree to put in the set. We purchased a simple decorative tree from our local Five Below and it is the perfect size for our space. You can just about find a miniature tree at any store that sells holiday decor such as Michaels or Target, but this tree was the perfect fit for us.

Tiny Ornaments

Our miniature ornaments were an absolute steal. We found these decorative tiny ornaments at our local Michaels and got a pack of silver and red. They come in a few other colors as well and they work perfectly for any 1:6 scale doll Christmas tree.

Lights

The final touch for our Christmas decor are our fairy lights. We recently purchased them from Amazon. They are great for the set because they come in a pack of 2 and are operated by using remotes to change the light settings. This is particularly helpful so that you don’t have to constantly maneuver the battery pack to use the lights and their settings. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more 1:6 scale decor!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for a new post every Friday!

new projects!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_2733.jpg

We have a couple a new projects that we’ve been developing to prepare for the next few months before the year ends.

November planning (Vlog Theme)

Since we’re about to begin a new month, that means a new theme for doll page. November’s theme will be vlog themed and follow the dolls and the team and their day in the life activities.

“wildwave” Book

We also have started a new story project series. The “wildwave” series will follow a group of college students and their musical journey together as a band. We’ve recently locked down the characters and can’t wait to start our first draft.

“Campus Life” Rewrite

Along with “wildwave”, I have also begun a rewrite of a book series that I started in high school. The “Campus Life” series project has always had a special place in my heart, so I’m excited to take story in a different direction than its original version.

s.p.o.t.s loft

One of our other big projects coming up for the holidays is the construction of our s.p.o.t.s loft, a two-story hangout space for the dolls for our doll page. Pictured below is a behind the scenes look at our tester set that was constructed to get measurements. The official debut of the finished project will be around Thanksgiving.

Prepping for the new year

And lastly, we are overall prepping for the new monthly themes for the new year! We are really excited to show what we have planned!
