As the weather turns warm, we crave ice cream! But of course, this particular ice cream is created in 1/7th scale miniature. Our team made this miniature diorama to tell one of our original tales. The story goes that there was a lonesome timeworn frontier outpost, but a little girl that lived there believed in magic with all of her heart and wished for a secret surprise for her town. The next morning something unbelievable appeared to the amazement of the bewildered old west settlers of the region...this magic parlor of electrified-blue. As a part of the Museum of Make Believe experience, we plan to build a full scale “Dream Parlor” cafe’ for the museum. You can scroll through the photos to see the concept art for that vision. We can’t wait to be able to serve you a magical treat in person!

We have been working hard to create magic for our upcoming event "Make Believe at Muzeo," which happens this Saturday May 15th from 4-7pm PST at the Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center in Anaheim, CA.

This event is now sold out; however, we do have a livestream option you can watch for free from anywhere! Find the YouTube livestream link below and set a reminder for yourself so you won’t miss it!

https://youtu.be/_JG-Oh3LYRk

We have a wonderful host for this virtual edition, Greg Nutt, of the travel series “The American Landscape”.

During this whimsical late afternoon affair, booths will abound with creative crafts and activities along with tasty treats. Try your hand at candle dipping, create your own dragon puppet, learn Morse code on an 1800’s telegraph, have your fortune told, experience a vintage tintype photograph demonstration, plant spring flowers to take home and even dig for gemstone treasure!

To end the night, you can gather around our stage, set in the soft light and brilliant colors of an enchanted spring evening. At the show, you’ll be delighted by fairy tales from local authors, charming original shadow puppetry, a pair of magicians from the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood and a Walt Disney Studios Technologist will present a laterna magica or magic lantern show (think of it as the projector of the 19th century). We will even get to see Buster Balloon in action who has performed twice at the White House in Washintgon DC and has been dubbed "The Michelangelo of Balloons." We will end the evening by teaching you the secret to eternal youth…if you are lucky, you may even take home a prize that will unlock the mysterious power of make believe!

We look forward to “seeing” you there!
