For the knitters among you: Knit your own Anne Boleyn. With, um, detachable head.

Via Ellen Kushner. I know at least two people who are going to want to try to knit this damned thing.

Wednesday Addams had one of those.

That is too funny. I bet you that would be a huge hit on Etsy.

Oh! Someone knit me one! I'll purchase with actual money!

I want a hand knitted Anne Boleyn doll the way Veruca Salt wants everything! I want one so much, I've sprayed exclamation points all over your blog!

That's just awesome.

(I never knew I had this affinity for beheaded hand crafts, but this one pleases me. Think of the church bizarres...)

*laugh* that looks disturbingly tempting. I'm going to have to go through my craft supplies and see what I have on hand.

"Off with her head!" *throws it across the room*

I'm gonna knit one, then dress her up like Marie Antoinette! Madame DeFarge, indeed.

yeah it's funny but not really. I was at the London Dungeon a few years ago and they had an exhibition about beheadings. A lot of people found it funny and I guess it was funny but still... I learned that Robbespierre was known for having the most beheadings in modern French history but only stayed in power for a year before being overthrown by the French.

Reminds me of the Bastille day (headless) gingerbread man cookies I used to make....

Sbarret,

I made Christmas cookies with all the reindeer names on them one year, and made sure to call one "Donder." Then I bit the head and leg off one more, covered it with icing blood, and named him Donner.

That was that last year anyone let me decorate the cookies.
