WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 333 The season 8 Game of Thrones trailer premiered yesterday (yeah, I watched it 4 times). 40 days, just like Lent, until the premier. Here's one of the most mysterious characters from the books/show. This is Leaf. Leaf is one of the Children of the Forest. They are one of the original people of Westros. Although calling them "people" isn't right, as they are more like Elves or Fairies. They have magic. I won't go into the whole history, I'll just say that they are very important to the whole story line.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 332 The last of my new Native American dolls. These little ones, only 3-4 inches tall, are wooden, with a cellulose head. The poor dear on the right looks like their face got stepped on and I'm not sure what the dot is on the other one. They were also made for the tourist trade.
See? Their feet are stamped "Japan". My guess is they are from the 50's or 60's. Next time we'll be going back to Westros.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 330 Let the countdown begin. 2 months until the season 8 premier of Game of Thrones. I got lots on new Funko dolls to share. Up first:
Gendry (Baratheon) bastard son of King Robert. Not Cersi's son(check out GrayArea on you tube for a video about that nonsense theory) We first met Gendry while his working as a blacksmith in Flea Bottom. To save him, he's shipped off to join the Night's Watch were he meets Arya. In a long involved storyline, he's put in a boat by Ser Davos and not seen again for 4(?) seasons. He came back in season 7, went beyond the wall with that group and who knows (George R. R. Martin?) what's going to become of him.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 329 The other day I won 4 Native American dolls on an auction site. Here's the first one.
Here's a close up of her face and her little baby. There's no markings on her and I have no idea what tribe she is from. Any ideas?

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 328 Finally, after being on the show since episode 1, season 1.
Lord Varys gets his own doll. AKA The Spider, he has a hidden agenda and has been playing the long, really long Game of Thrones. What's he really up too? Guess we'll find out soon.
