The Dreary Clowns (by the doll artist named Nikki)

The members of cheery about agnes dreary are amazing and beyond. Top of the list - Nikki. Her created treasures are seen throughout Drearydom Larks. Her latest project always seems to be her best BUT THEN she posts something new and that becomes BETTER than best.

Her latest: THE DREARY CLOWNS The story! The Repaints! The Costumes! The Accessories (check out the popcorn and machine) YUP - all done by Nikki! Amazing is a synonym for Nikki.

Check out the pics and writing samples from the story:

They had been the best, the three of them. Family. One of the favourite shows at the Laurent Carnival. Horatio, Clown and Dumdum; father, son and dummy. Children and adults alike were captivated by their colourful antics and Dumdum’s witty retorts. Juggling, balancing, voice throwing, they did it all, and the audience loved them for it.

Stripping away the fool’s personality, Clown was a handsome young man, though his bright and unruly hair was only too real and gave him a somewhat wild look. With his face on, Clown could be flamboyantly loud and energetic, but with the last colours wiped away, the quiet young man emerged. He attempted to smooth his hair down a little; he wanted to look his best this evening. He had an important question to ask

The carnies gathered around the carousel, candles in hand, to welcome the bride and groom. Hand in hand, as Libby was still a little unsteady on her feet, they made their way to the ride. Dumdum waved proudly from the crowd, held up by Kitty.

As the carousel slowly revolved, Clown and Libby made their marriage vows to one other. Those spoken and the unspoken, when meant from the heart, whether it beats or not, are the most powerful and not easily broken by man, nor time, nor death itself.
