I decided to do some handcrafts one day. I've been doing dolls from paper for some time now as I feel paper is the easiest thing for me to work. This time I used hot glue instead of ordinary glue and did the hair from strips of paper.
The hair was fun to make. While I was doing it my boyfriend asked why I was making a kimono lady with a rasta heirdo. I have to admit, it looks a little like that.
Here's a close-up of the face. I was thinking about making a face for her, but decided othervice. I chose black for the underkimono because under the snow, everything is dead and waiting for the spring to come. I don't know why I added the white strips of hair, I just felt like they belonged there. This is something very natural for me when I'm making something, sometimes it just feels natural to add something in there without much deeper analytical thoughts.
