The Wicked Queen asks her magic mirror:

"Mirror, Mirror, on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?"

... and the mirror replies...

QUOTE
Frau Königin, Ihr seid die Schönste hier,
Aber Schneewittchen ist tausendmal schöner als Ihr.

(Your Majesty, thou art the fairest I see
Yet Snow White is a thousand times fairer than thee.)

QUOTE
Frau Königin, Ihr seid die Schönste hier,
Aber Schneewittchen über den Bergen
Bei den sieben Zwergen
Ist noch tausendmal schöner als Ihr.

(Your Majesty, thou art the fairest I see
Yet beyond the mountains 'neath the vault of heaven
Where dwell the dwarves, all seven,
Snow White is still a thousand times fairer than thee.)

Thank you both, Vesperala and Reny.

One of the trickiest things for me to achieve with the disguised old woman was to have her simultaneously quaint-looking (like a kindly farmer's lady who wouldn't automatically frighten Snow White by her appearance) and yet somehow creepy - especially once she starts chuckling evilly to herself.

I also wanted to make the Wicked Queen look both attractive and haughty. (She's got red hair primarily to make it stand out from the golden crown, as I didn't want to give her dark hair like Snow White's.)



Here is the kolobok scene linking the two events: the transformation of the Wicked Queen into the Old Woman. The original story doesn't say that the transformation was achieved by magic; I suppose it could just be that the Queen was amazingly adept at disguising herself. But to simplify things, instead of making her put on a wig and heavy makeup and a false nose, and learning how to bend her back so as to look as though she's got rheumatism, I've just got her muttering a magic spell and waving her hand to achieve the transformation.

Thank you, Reny. angel.gif hi.gif (I think we need a girl version of the kolobok tipping its hat, don't we?)

I enjoyed creating Little Miss Muffet so much that I wanted to make some additional nursery rhyme koloboks.

So... I'm working on Mary Mary, Quite Contrary.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How Does your Garden grow?
With Silver Bells and Cockle Shells
And Pretty Maids all in a Row.


This is the contrary Mary: Attached Image <-- static idea

Here is her Garden: Attached Image

Just a quick update...







I went into hospital on Monday for neurosurgery. I stayed in for two nights, but was released today - just back now.

I'm not supposed to do much in front of the computer for about 4 weeks... so kolobokking is probably going to be slow for a while. I think some lovely nurse koloboks gathered around a hospital bed may be the next project, to signify my appreciation for the wonderful nursing team (and surgical team, of course) who looked after me so fantastically.

Many thanks, Reny. I am recovering well. There will be a wait of a few months to see whether this surgery has fixed the problem...

Reny, tender.gif



I don't know whether you've seen the news about Australians panic-buying toilet paper... but it's absolutely true. There are some foolish people who have gone through the supermarkets and bought up every roll, and that causes other people to worry about the shortage of toilet paper, and THEY have then thought that they'd better stock up on toilet paper...

At the moment, there is no toilet paper available anywhere (or it's sold out almost within minutes when a new delivery is made).

The video in this news story (on the ABC) shows appalling behaviour on the part of two women (with a huge trolleyfull of toilet paper packs) who assaulted another woman who wanted just one packet of toilet paper.

Hereby is my Toilet Paper Wars kolobok creation: Attached Image

Thank you, Reny. That was exactly the sort of expression I wanted on their faces!


It's a frightening world at the moment. I have two new little koloboks, protecting themselves and others by using a mask and hand sanitiser.
