Crime Alley by Jedd-the-Jedi Crime Alley by Jedd-the-Jedi
I got a Tomb Raider motorcycle diorama for a decent price and thought it might make a good Crime Alley. So, I dirtied the whole thing up with some drybrushing, spray-painted the "graffiti", printed out several things to paste on the walls, stuck bits of plastic bag/newspaper on the floor and made psuedo-barb wire with twisty ties. I also made some six-inch scale roses and a black paper box to put them in. Each one of the posters has some significance, and so does the graffiti. Bonus points if you can tell me where the "missing" poster at the bottom is from (don't worry, it's not a real-life missing person notice)!

The roses are made of toothpicks and epoxy putty. The box was made from pieces cut out of plastic blister packaging, taped together, covered in newspaper and painted. Now Bruce and Alfred can pay their respects. Bruce is a custom figure.

Wasn't the WANTED poster the one from the Dark Knight Rises site asking to locate the whereabouts of "the Batman" ?

You're right, that's where it was from! The Bruce Wayne figure is covering a "wanted" poster of Jack Nicholson's version of the Joker, as well. Thanks for your comment!

Thank you, I appreciate that! I guess it would hard to bits of actual paper stuck everywhere on a mass-produced diorama though :D

Thanks for the comment, but I'm afraid I don't understand it. Are you asking your parents' permission to purchase this custom? If so, I'm sorry but it's not for sale. Are you saying that you're asking your parents' permission to buy the base Tomb Raider diorama? Please clarify, thanks!

Yes, that is a Haley's Circus poster, noting that the act is cancelled. There's an older poster on the floor too. Thanks very much!

I love it! The attention to detail and the effort you put into making this a piece of Gotham seriously shines. I never would have expected to read that it came out of a Tomb Raider piece.

Thank you so much, I appreciate your kind words. I was hoping it would feel like "a piece of Gotham", as you put it. I think my idea was better than my execution, but I'm glad you like it and thanks for faving it too!
