    My Custom Diorama Backdrop for Mego's Bewitched 2-pack Set

    Here's a backdrop I created for my Mego Bewitched set. I've been thinking about making one for a while, but never got around to doing it. But now that I'm laid off from work because of the pandemic, I have plenty of free time on my hands these days, so I spent the weekend making this. As you know Mego already created a partial backdrop for the 2-pack set of the living room set with the french doors and couch, so I decided to make a backdrop of the adjacent wall with the fireplace and bookshelves. It's the same size as the original backdrop (10" x 17") so it can also fit inside the box. I have to purchase a new towel to use for the carpeting because the Stephens' carpet was an olive green color--not blue.

    It looks great, seamless. You really captured the look of the original backdrop.

    I have been thinking about creating a custom Darrin. I visited the TV Toys site. and saw some things I liked. For example, the Clark Kent blue business suit looks like something Darrin would wear to work, and I think the Black haired Peter head might pass for a "generic" Darrin, except the side burns are too long.

    I was hoping new mego was going to make a Darrin, really wish they did.

    Here's another backdrop I've been working on the past few days. This is the foyer/entrance area of the Stephens' house. This one was a little more challenging to make because if you're familiar with the show, you know that there's a hallway around the corner that extends back along the staircase. I tried to create the illusion of one but I'm not totally satisfied with it. I think if you look at it from certain angles it works.
