Hi all, This is te first time i am participating in this contest. Let me tell you I have totally been inspired by you all participants in decorating my marapachi dolls. So thanks to all of you. I have tried decorating my dolls to look like ISKCON Radha Krishna. Using the cloth and sequences I have made the dresses for both. The crown for Krishna with the peacock feather is made out of card paper. Hope you like my attempt. Thanks.
