Incredible realistic miniature movie sets from the artist, including Friends, Harry Potter and Jurassic Park

Bridget McCarty, 37, creates miniature movie sets – but they’re so detailed you wouldn’t even know they were fake.

His works include iconic scenes from Jurassic Park, Friends and Harry Potter and can take up to a month each to build, but the results are staggering.

Bridget, from Los Angeles, California, USA, says it started out as a hobby – but it became her full-time job when people started queuing up to buy her pieces.

She said, “Creating miniatures can really take you to another world.

“My ideas can be found everywhere – from my favorite TV shows to theme parks.

“They can be made from anything you can imagine.

“I love having a finished piece and knowing that I used my best skills to create it.”

Bridget shared how she was inspired by her grandmother, who used to collect miniature items whenever she traveled and store them on shelves. However, as a child, Bridget was never allowed to touch delicate objects – which made her increasingly curious.

She said: “Knowing that I couldn’t touch them made me more obsessed with them.”

Growing up, she began creating her own miniature pieces as a hobby alongside her studies at school. She then started visiting conventions and setting up a small online store, but people were fascinated – and demand for her small stages meant it quickly became a full-time job.

Bridget, who is also trained in the art of animation, said, “Other artists have bought a lot of my pieces and kept me going.”

His pieces are dollhouse-sized pieces made from wooden boxes – with dimensions of 50cm or less – and depict film sets.

She creates incredible sets from “everything you can imagine” after installing tiny electric cables to light up the rooms.

She said, “Sometimes you can go to the craft store and your mind will be blown with ideas.”

Her small sets take up to a month for a project – or even longer if she juggles several at once.

Some of its most recognizable rooms include iconic scenes from well-known movies and TV shows, including Monica’s apartment in Friends and the Flourish and Blotts bookstore from Harry Potter. She even made a tiny but incredibly detailed version of Big Bang Theory’s Pasadena Comic Center.

Bridget’s inspiration most often comes from her favorite television shows as well as the theme parks and attractions she visits. She also has no intention of stopping – her small scenes and other small objects becoming more and more popular.

She said: “I love having a finished piece and knowing that I used my best skills to create it.

“I know the scale is correct.

“Followers love seeing photos of my work.

“It can really take you to another world and inspire a lot more people.”
