Unintentional Male-Dominated Christmas Village

Ho Ho Ho - everybody!

This last weekend we broke out the Christmas decorations.  I thought I'd share a little Vine video of our ever-expanding Santa's Village (on our mantle.)

We start out with a Christmas Zombie, then move over to a couple of burglars, Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins, and Spiderman.  Then we have Santa's castle with Santa and Mrs. Claus on top, observing who's being naughty and nice.  At the base of the castle is Eager Bob (a creature Magoo made when he was very young.) and Tom Brady of the Patriots.  Finally, by the grey house, we have Master Zutsu and Wink.

You know what I'm noticing?  There aren't a ton of women in this town.  I need some women!  Any suggestions on distinctive women?

Hi Julie, thanks a lot for posting!
It is true, there aren't many women above your mantle!
Things I could sugest:
1. A Christmas crib with Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus, after all, Christmas still is about Baby Jesus being born.
2. Perhaps a bunch of female carolers? You could make them with felt, they would be so cute!
3. About Super Heroes, I think that Wonder Woman and the Amazons could be a good idea.
4. I thought about making some replicas of female painters (Georgia O'Keeffe, Mary Cassat, etc.) it would be educative.

A great week!!

OMG - Big YES to Wonder Woman. Maybe Frida Kahlo - she has that giant unibrow.

Thanks for the suggestions!

How about Queen Elizabeth? You could give her a sparkly crown- nothing says the holidays like some glitter!
