Amanda’s Sideshow

amanda

My friend Amanda Fatherazi had an art show last november. How I wish I could have been there! The show was all her hand sewn dolls and the theme was the circus sideshow. Freaks! Lady freaks! I love them all. I actually have a spider lady that she made me that I need to wear this week. Here are the photos that she let me use for the blog.

Shireen the snake charmer. The turban and harmen pants, sequined snake scales, details that deserve poems to be written about.
