I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I've just discovered my new favorite quickie craft- articulated mermaid dolls! Alpha Stamps carries a chipboard mermaid doll that can be decorated as simply or ornately as you want, and having the base shape with pre-made holes makes it incredibly easy. All you really need to do is cut out a head and cover the rest with whatever papers you like! I painted parts of my dolls and used papers and collage sheets for clothes and tails, then added bits of fabric and crepe paper.

Naturally, the thought of Ariel the mermaid princess came to mind, but I envisioned her during her unknown goth stage.





Because these dolls can be constructed in a short amount of time, I made Ariel's sister.





It would be fun to have about eight more!

Cool pair of marine maids; I prefer your goth Ariel design, but they're both great (I like the rainbow scale pattern shirt and rose bouquet her sister is rocking, and you did a nice job hiding the elbow and waist joins on that one too with red ruffles).

You probably do need about eight more, Ariel had a LOT of sisters in that Disney film!
