Kokeshi ( from wikipedia ) are Japanese dolls, originally from northern Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. " - This is MY version featuring Morgan Booth ... WATERMELON KOKESHI

There's a reason as to why she has the band-aid on her watermelon kokeshi headpeice -But that of course is another story.
