I've lately been taking up my passion for braids again (I was a braiding nut as a kid). Marguerite has such pretty hair that I can't help but try out stuff on it (not like my mom. DEFINITELY not like my mom who fancied herself a hairdresser and subjected us to trim and perm experiments in the '80s. In the '80s! Our hair was toast.). I'm currently fascinated by those dreamy, pretty, romantic (old-fashioned too) hairstyles (stuff that only "professionals" or time travelers from the Victorian era can do, lol) and since I started trying to do them, I'm practically jonesing on them, lol. I have to have a daily fix. So yesterday, while Marguerite was busy watching her hamsters, I decided to try flat twists and a herringbone (also called fishtail, I believe) braid on her. I got the idea for flat twists from Curly Hairdo Ideas. I'm not sure if I did it right though.
I could have used better accessories, but those were the ones lying around, lol. After playing with the hamsters, we pretended to be puppets. The puppets I made can't adopt facial expressions, so we decided to ham it up ourselves. We'd already done quite a few before I thought to get the camera and take pictures of Marguerite mugging behind the theater. I think I caught "shy", "angry" (look out for that dirty foot), "sad" and "silly" (whereupon the theater collapsed around her, lol).
