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

... and a first draft of Contrary Mary in her garden: Attached Image
