thanks... they are fun to make...
camilaustral--they don't open after making them, but you do make them with the shell open and then close it at the end.  the layers at the collar are meant to represent the may layers of kimono that royalty would wear on special occasions. there are many many ways these dolls are interpreted, these are pretty simple, but some are amazingly complex and elegant, i encourage you to do a google image search for hina dolls to see more.

OOHH I just did a room escape game that was based on hina ningyo, apparently the empress can have up to 12 kimona and they must be wrapped right collar under (left collar under is how dead bodies are dressed) they are very sweet.
