Las Vegas Showgirl “Lola” Clothespin Doll

Viva Las Vegas! Everyone loves the old Vegas of yore and Lola is reminiscent and a tribute to the traditional showgirl.

Lola is second in my series of Las Vegas Showgirl creations. I did something a little different in creating Lola and actually gave her breasts (small wooden beads)! Unsure if I can reveal a photo of this. 😉

Showgirl Costume and Headdress: plastic bead and feathers from an old boa. Arms: metallic pipecleaner. High heels: painted on with glitter glue.

I have featured most of my clothespin dolls (along with a collection of Christmas tree ornaments I’ve collected over the past 35 years plus antique/vintage Christmas tree ornaments that have been passed down by family members) in a short 10 minute film my husband and I created entitled, “The Secret Lives of Christmas Trees.” Here’s our YouTube link if you wish to watch it.

    These are so cute! I’ve dabbled with clothespin dolls but find dressing them a little too small for me.
