    Modified Kokeshi Dolls -HandDrawn/HandPainted - due Nov 7

    Swap Due Date - Nov 7
    Number of Dolls - 3 for 3
    Medium - Hand Drawn, Hand Painted
    Number of Participants - 30 (my third swap)

    Let’s make Kokeshi dolls, only this time let’s do the modified version by making the face smaller, the features more detailed and including a background around the face and head. Scroll down to see some cool examples. Cute, right?

    Examples:
    These cuties are by TF Balding

    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gall...dex.php?u=8755

    Some requirements:
    *Doll should be approximately 4 1/2” by 2”. Use the basic Kokeshi shape (see post #2 below for template) but you can change it up a bit to suit your design if you like. For example, you could give your Kokeshi doll pants instead of a kimono. Or a skirt. Or whatever works for you. TF Balding’s gorgeous Red Riding Hood kokeshi (above) has a hood and cape and a little wolf at the foot of the doll.

    *Fill the circle around the head with something interesting such as a fancy hair-do, stars, patterns, flowers, a hood, a crown or whatever idea you come up with.

    *Make dolls that are human or human-like. By human-like I mean with a human form and face (like fairies, good witches, etc). Please do not make non-human characters (like Yoda, scarecrows, etc). No zombies, gore, blood, wounds, or dismemberment.

    *Best work only. No quick and easy.

    *Use your imagination and be creative!


    Other little details:
    * If you choose to send a hostie, know that it will be loved, adored, and probably named, but as usual, it is not required.
    * My goal will be to swap out Kokeshis "effort for effort" as best as I can.
    * Please let me know if you need to withdraw. I am required to give a notorious neutral iTrader if you do not communicate.

    Mailing Info:
    *Please protect your doll with plastic sleeves. Use two sleeves for each doll, one over the head of the doll and one over the skirt (or pants).
    * Please send a large address label with your address on it. I will provide the envelopes.
    * US players, please include one or two regular forever stamps, however many it required to mail your dolls to me.
    * I will provide postage for the first three international players. Other international players please send a well concealed US $.
    * Make sure you have your dolls to me by Nov 7. I hope to swap out immediately so you receive them before Thanksgiving.
    * Private message me for my address when you are ready to mail.

    I can't wait to see your dolls!

    I can’t get the pdf to attach, but the thumbnail below is a screen shot of it.

    Measurements are 4 1/2” by 2”. The circle for the head is 2” in diameter. Hips also about 2” or a tad over. Measurements don’t have to be exact - whatever works for you. Let’s say no more than 1/4” in variation.

    You could also take a look at the template on the MMH Kokeshi thread. I think that’s where I got mine originally. It’s at the lower part of the 1st post. It’s actually better.

    If none of my suggestions here work for you, I’m happy to mail you a template.

    So, basically anything goes as long as it fits in the template and it's human or human-like? The clothing/outfit is to our choosing?
