Felicity as Pippi Longstocking!

Today I dressed up Felicity as Pippi Longstocking (I've done it before, but I felt like doing it again - Felicity really does make a good Pippi Longstocking!)
I didn't take any pictures from today, so I decided to use a couple of the pictures I have from a couple months ago of her. I am thinking of making a video of them for my agtube channel, but I'll put the pictures on here too.
I'm kind of obsessed with Pippi, in case anyone was wondering. I love watching the videos (the ones starring Inger Nilsson and all of that - you know, the traditional actual Swedish ones). The books are great too.
For those of you who have never heard of Pippi Longstocking, well, she is a really daring, smart, funny, strong girl who lives alone with her monkey (I used Lanie's rabbit as the monkey XD), and her horse. She has a lot of interesting ways, and is a really good character. I love the books and the shows.
Here is Pippi and her "monkey."

Here is a full length one of her, her horse, and her monkey. Doesn't she really look like Pippi?

Pippi asleep (if you've ever read the books/seen the shows - you would know that she sleeps with her feet on the pillow! XD)

Pippi with her two friends Tommy & Annika. (I know, I know, Kit always gets stuck playing a boy in stories that need a boy because of her short hair)

Last shot of Pippi!
 
How to make your red haired doll into Pippi Longstocking: It is very easy to make your redhaired doll into Pippi Longstocking. All you have to do is do SUPER tight braids and position them. Then, pick out a colorful wild shirt, get a small apron/smock (I have one from a Pippi rag doll that I LOVE), then, for her pants, use bloomers that come on dolls like Kit & Molly). I got string to work as her little sock suspenders. Use two different colored socks, and roll them up or down at two different points. Put her in boots (I used some boots that came with Kirsten)
You now have a Pippi Longstocking doll!
