Nesting dolls

This idea takes on the Et swarm in costume, with my choice of having them depict Russian nesting dolls!

I struggled to find an idea for what the doll design should be, and then it occurred to me: Themselves! It doesn't come across well in sketch form, but I want the designs to be simplistic, painted versions of their normal attire. If I pull it off, it can be cute!

What do you guys think about including the top parts of the dolls? I included two to show how it would look. The other tops can always be put in the background.

Neat! Definitely a twist on the traditional costumes. But, how can they move around in the shells?

This is one of the most adorable sketches I have seen. I like it, but probably could be used for a different holiday. Other than that, awesome.

Could be useful for Christmas. Put the kids in bright, holiday colored clothes.

Personally, I think that Tiffany would make a great witch (a la Wicked Witch of the West).

Yeah, I don't know any Russian holiday, but Christmas (or in this case, Chrispmas) sounds like a good idea.

The Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas-just later than the secular Christmas.
