AFT TW: Owen's predicament - pictures for the drabble "Jumping the gun" by badly-knitted  
Last week I showed how I customized my very own Owen actionfigure and today I already have the first story with him. In a way it’s all badly_knitted‘s fault, and I want to thank her as I got inspired when reading her drabble ”Jumping the gun” Suddenly this image was in my head and wanted to be made. Finally I was able to put all the miniature medical stuff I own to good use. (What’s actually the name for photography plot bunnies?)

Crashes and clatters sounded from the autopsy bay, accompanied by increasingly girly screams of “Get it off! GET IT OFF!” from Owen.

Ambling over to see what was happening, the team were treated to the unusual sight of Owen flailing about with the tentacled creature they’d found earlier wrapped firmly around his head.

After several minutes, Jack managed to prise the poor creature off, leaving Owen slumped on the floor, gasping for breath.

“I know I’m not the medical expert here, but I thought you were supposed to wait until something was dead before performing an autopsy,” Ianto commented mildly.

PS: The white stool with three legs in one of the pictures? You’ll never guess what this is – we were eating pizza once and they arrived with these white things in the middle, so that the lid of the pizza box would not touch the pizza. I collected a few of them and they make great stools.

Very cute! Loved Ianto's dry line. Could totally hear him saying that.

The tentacle on top of Owen's head and all the other details were great.

Thank you very much, glad you liked it! Ianto's line is not from me, though. If you want to give feedback for the drabble, you can find the original post here: http://badly-knitted.livejournal.com/72616.html

When I read it, I KNEW that the tentacle guy had to be blue *g* I really saw the whole image very clearly. So I did it with some clay. I still have it, it might feature again in future stories LOL

At last the team is complete!
You have miniatures of everything! Is so cool :)
Some can be self-made, like the white stool, but the others, are from other tv shows???

I like Tosh taking care of Owen, and a classic Ianto's comment.
Antjedieastra on June 21st, 2013 06:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! Yes, it needed to be Tosh holding Owen's hand, nobody else.

And yes, I seem to have everything indeedd ;) And still I buy more all the time.

Let's see, some things are from other figures/TV shows. The pizza box is from the Hawaii Angel and Spike figure (which I only bought to put Jack's and Daniel's heads on them

The technical equipment, like the tablet computer, the laptop, the scanner and also the books, skull and stuff at the shelf are from my "Stargate" and "Atlantis" figures. That is the crystal skull!

And the gurney and the guy lying on it is from my Mulder and Scully figures. I saw the gurney once when a friend took pictures of Jack O'Neill laying on it and wanted to have it.

The rest of the medical stuff is just from miniature shops - some people decorate doll houses, others decorate miniature pharmacys or Doctor offices.

Excellent! That was a hilarious drabble - and you've made it really come alive. I love, love all the little details you always have like the green slimy thing in a box and the test tubes!
Antjedieastra on June 21st, 2013 09:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you! One day ebay will be my downfall, but I will die happy ;) When I saw the test tubes while browsing, I thought they were just too cute and I had to buy them.

I don't even remember where I got the slimy thing from. I have two different ones of them. Could have been something like party crackers or something *shrugs* And yeah, they are really slimey! You can stretch them as well. I wasn't sure how well that translates in the picture so I am glad it did!

I put them into the boxes which I bought separately, thought that would fit perfectly. Something for Owen to study ;)

*giggles insanely* This is so brilliant! My little drabble is now in full colour and the alien is so cute! Poor little thing was just defending itself, lol!

Owen's autopsy bay is full of fabulous things,looks like he's got everything he needs! I love the alien scorpion in its containment box. Is it Owen's pet or the next subject for autopsy? =D

Thank you so much for doing this!
Antjedieastra on June 22nd, 2013 07:29 am (UTC)
I am so glad you like it! And really, I have to thank you, as this was the inspiration I needed. I had planned to make an Owen for two years already and who knows how much longer it would have taken without your drabble.

I kept the alien so it might turn up again in some other story ;)

Heh, I had intended the scorpion to be dead and for study, but you are right, it would make a great pet too. I recently saw some awesome miniature terrariums with little critters, but they are quite expensive.

Feel free to share my link in your LJ so that your friends can look at the pictures as well!

I love it :) This one was like reading a picture book.
Every scenes were fit to the story. An excellent work.
Tosh helping Owen part was sweet.
Antjedieastra on June 22nd, 2013 07:25 am (UTC)
Thank you very much! As long as people write great fanfiction or drabbles, I can make great picture stories. Maybe one day you write one? *g*

And of course it needed to be Tosh who holds Owen's hand.

It just occured to me, I also need to make a Rhys for Gwen... have to look for a good figure to use!

There's so much to love here! Your Owen is perfect!!!

I love all the medical stuff, especially the skeleton. And the laptops too! The one on the chair looks like it's really working!

What did you use for the floor?
Antjedieastra on June 22nd, 2013 07:23 am (UTC)
Thank you, glad you love it! Again I had so much fun.

The skeleton was a gift from a friend, she had two of them and asked if I want one. It is a nightmare though, bits keep falling off LOL

The laptops did both come with Atlantis figures! That's my main regret about the Torchwood and Doctor Who figures - they could have added so many great little things with them. I have a few but there could have been lots more. The Stargate figures really were outstanding in that way.

The floor is just some mesh wire. It is a long plate which I originally bought in the hardware store because I wanted to make the inside of the TARDIS I have better. There the ground floor is done only with printed paper, but a friend has one that somebody customized with real wire mesh and I think it looks better. I haven't gotten around to do this yet, so when I needed a floor this panel seemed perfect!

Besonders das Bücherregal und der grüne Skorpion in der durchsichtigen Packung haben es mir angetan!

Wie viele verschiedenen Puppen hast du jetzt schon insgesamt?
Antjedieastra on June 22nd, 2013 07:11 am (UTC)
Die Bücher haben sich so über die Jahre zusammengesammelt - das dicke ist "War & Peace" von den Atlantis-Figuren, die anderen kamen mit Buffy-Figuren.

Ich hab keine Ahnung mehr, wo ich den Skorpion her habe. Ich hab auch noch eine Spinne oder Käfer oder sowas in der gleichen Art. So schleimig, man kann sie langziehen ;) War vielleicht mal in einem Tischfeuerwerk, oder Überraschungsei? Die Dosen hab ich extra gekauft, da passt er perfekt rein.

Oh, Moment, ich geh mal zählen:

Stargate: 21 (SG-1 in verschiedenen Uniformen teilweise)

Atlantis: 10

Doctor Who: 44 (alleine der zehnte Doctor kommt mal im blauen, mal im braunen Anzug, mal in Brille, mal im Raumanzug, mal mit Mantel, mal ohne...)

Torchwood: 8

Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Indiana Jones, Shaun the Sheep Figuren, Wallace & Gromit, Terminator (2), Mulder & Scully, ein paar von Primeval und Buffy/Angel (nicht weil ich die Figuren wollte, sondern die Extras, die mit ihnen kamen ;) )

und dann noch die selbstgebastelten. Und das sind nur die kleinen, von den großen, mit richtigen Sachen und mehr Gelenken, so wie Barbie, hab ich auch noch Jack, Daniel, den zehnten und elften Doctor (edit: hab den Obama vergessen!) und bald John und Sherlock, auf die freu ich mich schon! Da fehlt mir nur noch ein Jack Harkness zu meinem Glück. Und mit "Arrow"-Figuren könnten sie eigentlich auch langsam mal rausrücken LOL

Aber jetzt hab ich auch noch angefangen, andere Figuren zu kaufen, die man auch gut brauchen kann, wie diese hier zum Beispiel: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/57854.html

Und neulich auf Ebay hab ich was gefunden, das "Dolls of the World" heißt, von McDonalds, verschiedene kleine Puppen in Landestrachten. Ich bin echt total verfallen ;)

Grade gestern hat mir jemand diesen Link hier gegeben, schau dir das mal an, da hat jemand GANZ viele von den 12" Cameron Mitchell Figuren und gestaltet sie in alle möglichen Rollen um, die Ben Browder jemals gespielt hat, mit den entsprechenden Kostümen. Die meisten kenne ich nicht, aber sie hat auch wunderschöne Szenen, wie diese vielen Cams alle durcheinander wuseln und nimmt sie auch immer auf Reisen mit - es sieht wirklich so aus, als ob sie ein Eigenleben hätten! Hier ist die Seite mit ganz vielen tollen Fotos (und beweist, dass ich lange nicht alleine so verrückt bin): https://www.facebook.com/AdventuresOfTheGuys

Hi, got here from doctorwho.

This is really brilliant! I love how you set up the autopsy bay -- the table and that scorpion are my favorites.

Also, when I think of tentacled creatures they are either blue or purple in my headcanon, so perfect color choice for that too :)

You also just inspired me to do delve more into photo stories... I've done it once or twice but your post made me all giddy about it! Thank you!
Antje: JohnB2011dieastra on June 22nd, 2013 03:06 pm (UTC)
Heh, thanks for the praise! That icon is awesome as well ;)

I have so much miniature stuff, it is ridiculous. But there are so many awesome shops where you can buy stuff for dollhouses. There is nothing you can't get in miniature.

And of COURSE tentacle guy had to be blue. There was no other way. I couldn't make myself to destroy him after usage, so he is still alive and might come back one day.

Ooh! You're doing actionfigure theatre as well? I'd love to see your work. Do you know whe have a whole multifandom community for it? Have a look here: action_tales

Also, I think you are new to my LJ - I have masterlists of all my stories, if you want to see more:

Doctor Who: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/23912.html

Torchwood: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/23552.html

Have fun!

There's only one word for them - brilliant :)

Wow, thank you so much!

*giggle* poor Owen and great idea for the stools.
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 08:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Just keep your eyes open, there are lots of stuff you can use. Also little things in keychains are the perfect size.
teaboyfanteaboyfan on June 22nd, 2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
Brilliant illustration of a very funny drabble! I love miniatures, and your action figure theatre performances are always outstanding.
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 06:23 am (UTC)
Thank you very much! I am so glad I can bring a bit of joy into all your lives.

Ein paar Tage außer Landes und hier passieren großartige Dinge.

Wunderbarer Owen!:) So viele schöne Details. (Die kleinen Flaschen!)

Und ja, diese komischen Dinger hatte ich auch schon ein paar Mal in der Pizza;)
Antjedieastra on July 4th, 2013 08:44 pm (UTC)
Dankeschön! Stimmt, ich hatte dich schon vermisst gehabt, du bist ja immer ein sehr zuverlässiger Kommentator ;)

Also hier in Dresden sind sie mir noch nicht untergekommen, aber ich hab auch lange keine Pizza mehr bestellt. Die ich besitze, stammen aus Peterborough/UK, wo wir zu der einen Convention mit dem kompletten Torchwood-Team waren. Das Hotel hatte kein eigenes Restaurant, aber dafür jede Menge Pizzabestellzettel LOL

Bless you dear. So happy to see some Owen action! Yeah!
The tentacle guy reminds me of the ghosts that appear in the Pacman game, hehehe.
Antjedieastra on July 4th, 2013 08:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, glad you like it! This definitely was overdue.
Hah! You are right! Maybe they did inspire me unconsciously. He looked kinda familiar though.
Who?Muse: TW Owen Grintardisjournal on June 25th, 2013 08:02 pm (UTC)
Oh wow, that is awesome! I love all your little medical items--it really looks like a workroom Owen would set up, right down to the pizza box to the trash can. The best part is the Owen with the "creature" on his head--ROFL! You nailed it!

I've seen those little white stands in pizzas before-very ingenious to use it for a stool. :)
Antjedieastra on July 4th, 2013 08:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! I loved setting up the room as well. Usually I have a look through my boxes, what items I could use, and often find stuff I had forgotten I even owned ;)

And you need to see the world with different eyes when playing with miniatures. You can always find useful things, like those pizza stands.
