Kokeshi #77 Red Queen
Well after a long time in the studio, the Red Queen kokeshi is finally finished! I ended up placing her hair bun a bit askew and embellished her with metal roses in red and greenish-gray, plus faux pearls, and a flower bead. My staples! I’m also enjoying painting lips on the dolls instead of the little crooked smile, so I’ll probably keep doing that more often than not. On the whole I’m really pleased with how she came out, especially after such a long hiatus.
Yesterday I finished the ice cream kokeshi so hopefully I’ll get her photographed amidst this week’s continuing packing frenzy. Plus I started a large, Day of the Dead themed kokeshi doll, busy me!
