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.
Beula the bearded lady, what a glamour girl!
Gladys and Paulette the trapesists. They look like double the trouble. I love their outfits!
Indigo the tattooed lady. Her tattoos are stitched, gives a new meaning to being needled.
Lilya the spiderwoman. She looks sort of sweet and sad.
Maude the ringmaster, a real firecracker!
The Samuel sisters siamese twins. A fabulous new lounge act?
Shireen the snake charmer. The turban and harmen pants, sequined snake scales, details that deserve poems to be written about.
Octavia the mermaid with her mighty lovely tail. Now if we could just see some stop motion video of the girls in action!
Check out Amanda Fatherazi’s site she has some lovely broaches for sale.
