Thanks go out to Cree McCree for donating King Antoine’s crown and throne.

Queen Is in the Details

Girl cannot help but look glam. I mean, just look at her. She is FABULOUS, but she’s also a WARRIOR.
I, as her “maker” and an aspiring dollmaker, am happy for her, but also excited to step away from the usual wacky plantation belles and gayboys I create, and to get Vivienne decked out in mirrors, silver shoes and a gigantic headpiece.
