The first one is for Ness's Birthstone Contest. I like how it turned out. The second one is a colorgaurd doll. Colorgaurd is basically twirling a flag, but you add baton if you want to and sometimes dance. When I was a colorgaurd, we actually had a competition routine where in the first part, (the dance) we would do that with our arms. (We had wings, lol) It was so fun! We didn't have the flag in the dance (We then picked it up after), but I had to incorporate it somehow. I really like this doll, especially because its resembling something I did!
