I am quite a bit behind in my posts.
Survey has come and gone and I am finally catching up!
Before I begin,
SURVEY WAS AWESOME THIS SEMESTER!
CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE!
(we made it!)
Here are the four doll boxes.
They changed a lot from my original impressions
of what they would look like.
And were more problematic than I thought they would be.
But I think they turned out rather well.
Red Riding Hood
I chose to place her in the forest setting.
The trees are my favorite (besides the mushrooms),
made from sticks found outside the Pratt dorms.
I wanted to focus on the grungy, maid aspect of Cinderella
rather than the princess. So I put her in a fireplace
picking up breadcrumbs.
This is the scene where Gretel pushes the evil witch into the oven,
rescuing herself and her brother Hansel from the wickedness
of her candied home. I had some trouble with the walls, but
the candy pattern made a huge difference.
Rumplestiltzkin is spinning straw into gold in a stone castle
dungeon. It was difficult to make the straw not look like fire.
