People love the concept of shrinking normal things. There are entire cooking shows about making tiny food in tiny kitchens. And we already love the mini Stay-Pufts from a film we haven’t seen yet. There’s something cool about either imagining a person or object in tiny form. Artist, model maker, and painter Bridget McCarty feeds into our desire to make life-sized things miniature with replicas of popular TV shows and films, among other things.
McCarty’s Instagram and TikTok pages are a wonderful foray into some really awesome projects. For example, McCarty made an adorable little Gizmo as well as his home. The intricate details and vibrant colors are a wonder, especially to someone like me. I do not have an artistic bone in my body. How is this possible?
There’s also a tiny Haunted Mansion that looks just like the film. But my favorite one might be the Friends reunion miniature. A small door opens up to reveal an adorable monkey sitting on an orange couch. And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a TV showing the famous series on it.
Also, in honor of spooky season, McCarty gave us some great Ghostbusters action, taking us inside the mini world of a messy kitchen. I wonder what is in the fridge. In one comment, McCarty reveals that it takes a few weeks to put together these awesome creations. That’s a labor of love that we can get behind.
While McCarty likes to share her talents with the world on social media, there are some designs that fans can own. A trip over to her Etsy page reveals dollhouse mini bunnies, puppies, and even a Santa Grogu for the Mandalorian lovers. There are a ton of talents that a person can have but this one is very high up on the cool list.
