My Ga Ga Doll

Since today is a free day for the A to Z Challenge, I'll use the time to post pictures of my latest doll. My intention is to create four "Rocker Girl Dolls" as part of an all girl rock band. My generation had Janis Joplin, Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship), Tina Turner and Cher and later, Stevie Nicks, Ann and Nancy Heart, Joan Jett and Pat Benetar.

Today, my two granddaughters, Maya and Reylena have Miley Cyrus,
Lady Ga Ga, Katy Perry and Rihanna to emulate. We do give guidance when these "teen idols" hit the tabloids though.

Maya is my 4-year-old granddaughter and is well versed in the fashions that these teen queens inspire. My son was sternly corrected when he called Miley Cyrus "Hanna Montana".

Anyway, this is Ga Ga, she is the second member of the group and like my Miley doll she was inspired by her namesake. It's so funny, as I create my dolls they take on personalities of their own. Miss Ga Ga here gave me so much trouble because we couldn't agree on her costume. We finally agreed on this pink patent leather ensemble with black leather boots. Rocker girl number 3 is in the works so stay tuned.

  1. I love being creative, too, now only have time for writing my books, but now and again I make dolls that represent my book characters. Love your work. Carole.
