    MMH Kokeshi Dolls

    Do you want to start collecting “artist” Kokeshi dolls painted in different themes? I know I do!

    Traditionally, kokeshi dolls are made of wood and were originated in Japan. They are similar to the matryoshka doll without the “nesting”.

    MMH KOKESHI DOLL RULES:

    • You must use the attached template. Make sure your setting is fixed to Original size. Do not print as Full Page. After printing, measure the 1 inch line to be sure you are using the correct-sized template.


    • Your MMH Kokeshi doll MUST always wear a kimono but the colors, designs, etc. can be based on a specific character, i.e. wonder woman, peter pan, Winnie the pooh, princess leia, etc. OR a general character, i.e. fairy, princess, wizard, devil, etc. OR a theme, i.e. zodiac, sports, career, seasons, holiday, dolls of the world, etc.


    • Your doll can be female or male –females can also be a version of a specific male character, i.e. the joker, batman, etc.


    • Your doll must be human – he/she can be wearing an animal costume, Christmas tree costume, easter bunny costume, etc.

    • The template is approximately 4 inches tall and approximately 2 inches at the widest point. You can add buns, crowns, hats, wings, etc. but your doll should never be larger than 4 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches at the widest point. It’s ok if you make your template a little bit smaller in order to not go over the 4 inches, in case you’re adding a tall hat, large hair(Marie Antoinette?), horns, etc., but please try to keep the overall height at 4 inches to 4 inches tall


    BASIC RULES:
    • You must have an ITrader of +3 to participate.

    • HD/HP Only. No collage, No stickers, No raised embellishments. Stamps are ok to use as decoration, i.e. small flowers, hearts, etc.


    • Leave user info on the back of card.


    • You must mail out your doll within 2 weeks of agreeing to create it.


    • A Negative iTrader should be given to players who do not follow the above rules or mail out their item within 2 weeks.


    • NO CHATTING ON THE THREAD! PM if you have questions or comments.


    • We Love Pictures! – On your original thread, post a pic of your doll. You may do this before or after it’s been received.


    • Do not forget to leave your ITrader to the player whose doll you have received!


    Here is a doll I have ready to mail if anyone ask for a Jasmine kokeshi. As you can see, I tweaked her head a bit just to make it look more like Jasmine's hair, but she is still within the requested dimensions.



    So.....who wants to play?

    I LOVE this idea, TriLov! I hope we are not alone. I may eventually go for the "Dolls of the World" theme - wouldn't that be fun to collect? For now (after getting the template correct), I will MYH with a Traditional kokeshi doll (I hosted a swap last December).

    Who will MMH with a:

    *Kokeshi doll with a butterfly theme
    *Kokeshi doll with a Spring season theme
    *Kokeshi doll with colors of emerald and violet

    Here is the doll for TriLov
