Kokeshi Dolls

One of our friends Angel is moving. She planned a last get together where we made our own Kokeshi doll.
This is what we started with.

We had to sketch the face and hair.

I went with the traditional purple hair. Oh wait that isn't right.

I added pig tails and did her kimono. We were supposed to use washi paper and modpodge it on there but I couldn't decide on a paper and I wanted a more subtle Kimono since her hair was purple. Then I added a little flower.

All of our dolls.

I added her to my Kokeshi collection. I have 11 now! I love Kokeshi dolls but I think I will stick to buying them and not making them.
Thanks Angel, I had a blast!
I will miss you!
