Laughing Deer. A Fancy Shawl Dancer

 Bath fun play Barbie, purchased at

Before a trip to the spa and designer.

Fancy shawl dancing is a Native American Indian
woman's face paced dance style most often done
during Pow wow's.

Laughing deer's face has been painted
using artistic acrylics and sealers.
She is wearing face paint and her hair
is braided into two long braids.

The fancy shawl regalia accentuates the
movement of the dancer.

The outfit is a Native American Indian
adorned dress, including feathers and beads. It
also includes moccasins and of course a
beautiful fancy shawl. 

The shawl is worn draped over the shoulders
and is made of colorful light weight fabrics.
It is decorated with paints and brilliant designs,
which are accentuated by the dancers movements.

Material used for the shawl was a scarf
I purchased from Michael's.
Moccasins coordinate the fancy shawl.

This doll was commissioned by a
Native American Indian friend of mine.
She now resides on the reservation with her :)
