These modified dolls were sent to my swap partner in the sideshow swap Cheesy 
I don't usually do much with dolls, but I really had a fun time with this one! 
It was a bit of a challenge (for me anyhow...) to sew the tiny dresses (erm, yeah...the dolls measure a little over 5" in height) but I'm pleased with the end result!   



This is the story of Chloe Mae and Verity Mae, collectively known as the Lacroix sisters.  Abandoned at birth, the girls were adopted by a troupe of kind-hearted sideshow oddities, who instantly recognized that the girls needed to be around people who loved them for who they are.  The tattooed lady (Mama Tat to the girls) took on the maternal role and made sure the girls were well cared for.  During their formative years, it was a common sight to see the girls running barefoot around the compound and making frequent stops to visit with their various uncles and aunts (they loved watching everyone get ready for evening shows).  More often than not, the girls would go home with bits of trinkets and sweet treats it was pretty dang impossible not to spoil them!  When they turned eighteen, Mama Tat made good her promise to them.  The girls have always desired to be a true part of the troupe.  So now, they have their own show The Kissing Booth!  Step right up!  Step right up!  For a mere 50 pence, youll be rewarded with kisses from the Lacroix sisters! 


The Kissing Booth, constructed by Uncle "Strongman" Hercules:

And having lived with Mama Tat all their life, it's natural for them to want their own tattoos!

Incredible!! I love the story and love that they enjoy knitting Smiley.

How did you connect the two dolls? Do they have a 3rd arm hiding under that dress? That would make knitting easier!!
