This piece is part of the newly opened "Cinderella's Fairy Tale Hall". It is a walk through exhibit inside the castle at the Tokyo park.
I was commissioned by the Imagineering division to create a paper sculpture diorama from the Cinderella tale. They specifically assigned me the moment when the prince sees Cinderella for the first time as she arrives to the grand ball.
The interior case measures approximately 30 inch tall, 22 inches across, and 14 inches deep.
The color scheme for the ballroom is taken from the movie...PINK PINK PINK in all of it's various tints, shades, and tones. Having a predominantly warm color worked out well. Cinderella is the only one in a cool blue tone. The other ballroom ladies are in warm monochromatic colors so they blended into the background and are secondary in importance.
The various dress designs on the ladies are inspired by drawings of old Victorian fashions.
This is a picture of the portion of the walk through with the various diorama scenes from the film. Each scene was created in a different medium by a different artist--wood, metal, glass, acrylic, porcelain, and paper. It was a really challenging and fun project to work on. I hope to see it in person at the park one day.
