Providing an opportunity to become something or someone else, even if only for a brief time, is one of the reasons Halloween is a favorite holiday for some. Judging by the work shown on her blog, I’m thinking Kiva Atkinson is one of those people, but not necessarily for that reason.
Whether or not she enjoys the dressing up part of the holiday, her work demonstrates that she truly enjoys making the fun, freaky and sometimes creepy accoutrements that will really make a miniature Halloween scene come to life. Kiva, a Fellow member of IGMA, makes 1/12 and 1/24
scale miniature food, for her own amusement, or on commission, everything from Tudor items, which in and of themselves can appear quite strange to modern eyes, to ethnic specialities and if a slightly off-beat twist is requested, so much the better. She might enjoy the bizarre, but don’t be
mistaken in thinking that is all she does, Kiva does some of the most realistic food on the market today, and especially enjoys the challenge of making a variety of world cuisines, besides making a pretty mean Thanksgiving turkey.
