The African girl is bald at the moment (I'm still working on her braids), so she's looking a little frightening right now.
When people have asked me what I've been up to, I've been telling them I've been spending a lot of time in my room braiding hair for my puppet-doll. So the termination of this segment of my project will hopefully bring a sense of relief to my loved ones. Don't worry everyone, I still have a ways to go before I become some creepy, loner puppeteer like John Cusack in Being John Malkovich.
