A week has passed since the devastating news that the Guy 2-in-1 RAPS got lost in transit. Since then, I have been busy recreating the shrine – after all it had been bought at auction and considering the rather impressive price it fetched, it had to be replaced with something similar if not identical. It turned out that I wasn’t able to recreate the shrine in all its details. Some items simply were not found in my stash of little decorations anymore. But you’ll be pleased to know that the most essential ingredient of the shrine – the handcuffs – made a comeback. Without further ado I present you Guy 2.0.
I was relieved that I still had one of those smaller tins. They are actually not mint tins but much thinner – they originally contained needles for syringes!!!
While the general set-up of the diorama in the bigger RAPS remained the same, I did not have another metal castle in my stash. So instead, in Guy 2.0 we see a golden castle shimmering in the background – the castle and lands of Guy’s dream? Or the sun rising on the horizon?
The bottom part of the shrine remains essentially the same – it’s quite plain but that is because it is usually covered by the smaller tin that is attached to it via magnets.
And so, if we open shrine 2, we still have all the tools that a (k)night needs. I have added a little magnetic letter K in front of the word “night” – I liked the pun, but the shrine owner can decide whether she likes it or not and remove it if wanted.
As previously, a sultry-looking Guy has bedded down for the night:
Who knew that dark knights like flowery and polka-dotted bed linen??
The cover can still be lifted.
*coughs* I know, it’s hard *not* to touch…
I hope I have recreated the shrine well enough. Here’s a side-by-side comparison (click image to enlarge):
Guy 2.0 will go in the post today, properly packed and sealed in an envelope, registered and tracked. I am crossing my fingers that it will make it to its destination unharmed and undamaged, and finally rest in its new owner’s hands. She has been so patient and nice about this terrible snafus, she deserves some extra love…
PS: In case you are wondering why it took me a whole week to create the replacement shrine – I was concurrently working on eight further mini RAPSes… Sneak peek:
