The Detolf needed Spring cleaning and I told them that I am not their mother and they are big enough to do it themselves.
Note how Sherlock made himself scarce.

My local newspaper "Sächsische Zeitung" had very nice written article about me and my figures today and even showed some of my own pictures. Title: "Sightseeing with Captain Kirk". Of course my figures were very interested in it as well!

CG Galpal: Our local newspaper has downsized also, just not so much! :) Well done, Antje! I love your fandom mashups!

My entry for the word "Romance". I usually don't do romantic/shippy pictures so that is always a hard one. But I had an epiphany while thinking about the contest word. Not all romances are happy or mutual ones.

In season 3 of "Doctor Who", the Doctor still babbles on about Rose who he lost a while ago, and is oblivious to Martha's pining. And there is this beautiful scene where he walks away and Jack notices what is up because he feels the same. I always loved that one. So much said with so little words.

I felt that my usual speech bubbles would be too intrusive for this tender picture so I went with this style of text.

Even with my kitchen curtain closed, there is still too much light bleeding through which often makes the faces washed out. I finally found the button on my camera to reduce the brightness.
Instantly better picture!

My entry for the October 2016 challenge at "Sixth Scale Universe" for the word "Supernatural". I love my Weeping Angel statue! It's not an usual action figure with joints, but you have two heads and six arms for exchanging for different poses. For this picture I took it to a nearby park - in the dark!

I made 3rd place out of 12 pictures. The votes were 12-11-10 so almost a tie.

Today's story was inspired by President Obama talking about Star Trek recently. I thought he might want to meet his hero!
Please find some more detailed pictures and close-ups behind the cut.
(Look what he has on his table ;) )

Edit: Look at the high praise I got from Quantum Mechanix! "These photo shoots are about the best thing in my day. This one is epic! #LLAP" https://twitter.com/QMxInsider/status/787756978084904966

There was more also: "It's bigger on the inside ;)" https://twitter.com/QMxInsider/status/787757067750805504

Comment to the close-up of tiny figures: "oh my gosh that's just way too cool!!! :)"https://twitter.com/QMxInsider/status/787764540914237440

And me explaining about how I made the glass table from photoframes: "incredibly clever and creative! Great work!" https://twitter.com/QMxInsider/status/787766856761348097

It’s Oktoberfest time! My figures enjoy their beer and pretzels. I even have a brass orchestra!

The houses in the background are cardboard packages for wine bottles. I’ve kept them for many years.
Because of her costume Astrid always ends up as a serving lady in my pictures. Sorry Astrid! And the guy next to her looks as if he already had enough ;)

Jack brought both his old and new boyfriend - will that work out? Reason for more beer on John’s part, I guess.

Great comment in the William Shatner Facebook group:
