The verbiage on the back of Chablis' photo reads like this: Legendary Cree Spirit Warrior, "the Winter Man", circa 1750. The Spirit Warrior supernaturally rises out of the first snow to usher the winter season in across the land. Kim Jacobs is the owner, tackmaker, doll dresser and photographer.Just a few pictures left for tomorrow's post. Hope everyone's been enjoying this series and special thanks to Kim and Kim and Rosemary, Lauren, Joan,Corina, Cindy, Wendy and all the other wonderful MEPSA showers who gave me permission to post their photos on my blog.
Isaquah also belongs to Kim. She is dressed in a Contemporary Powwow style costume which combines historical/traditional designs with modern materials.

Moving on now to the Arab costume class. This is Kim Janes-Morgan's Miriah wearing a costume by Debb Parrish.
The rest of the horses belong to the very talented Kim Jacobs who also made all the costumes. Most of the dolls were dressed by Kim's equally talented mother, Lenore. The balance were dressed by Kim. First up is Deirah, who is sporting a 1960's era Saudi Arabian style costume during a hunt.
Khaleedah's costume is native Iranian-Bakhtiari style, circa 1950.
Nineteenth Century paintings by the old masters such as Schreyer, Degas and White were the inspiration for Salovah's costume.
