... Now I want an ice-cream pop. 

Victoria would love to be in musicals. Dancing and singing and acting all at once!

The colours do work well against her.

She does like this advice...

She was very comfortable.

123. W is for Worst

[Image: 69085474_e8259c611f993facd03c3a3a370665b9_standard.jpg]

Worst Witch, that is! The misadvemtures of little Mildred Hubble and her gang of friends. I got hold of the 90s series 1-3 boxset - on the left - and thought this would be a nice wee picture.

She's a cutie, one of those dolls that always make you smile. Nice to see her again!

She is very cute.
Victoria looks like she's waiting for someone to deliver some more furniture for her backstage dressing room...

I like the contrast of the red sash at her waist. Is that a screen- or book-accurate detail?

She’s such a cute doll. I do like the red belt as a contrast.

I don’t know much about the Worst Witch other than the actress who played the awesome Leanna Mormont in Game of Thrones was also in the TV show of The Worst Witch.

Mildred does just make me smile a lot. She's a really nice doll.

Hm, maybe I should see about getting her a vanity. Or trying to make one.

Both, actually. The sashes are said to represent the year group of each student. I went with red because ... well I had a red ribbon, but also because at the time I was making my custom the newer series had just started and Mildred was given a red sash in that.

A tiny thing of an accurate detail helping to provide some needed contrast.

Yes, that was in the newer one. The books can be said to be an inspiration for the earlier Harry Potter ones - they were published 20 years beforehand and they both riff on the same tropes - but in Worst Witch the stakes are much lower. Also generally for a younger age group. The 90s show won a children's BAFTA I believe.

124. X is for Xanthocomic

[Image: 69125921_ef8623824c3953071e3b340ffdd95726_standard.jpg]

Xanthos was ancient Greek for yellow. Being xanthocomic means to have yellow hair. I couldn't think of anyone with more yellow hair than dear Clawdia here.
Reply
Nice choice for X! Yup, if you asked me who has the most yellow hair of all, I'd say Clawdia, too. With her wits, hair and her smile, she's one of the brightest MH characters.

Well, xanthocomic is certainly a marvelous new word to have learned today! This forum is endlessly educational!
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

I don’t think you could get hair much more yellow than Clawdia. It almost glows.

She really is! The girl knows that bright colours suit her well.

Doing the A to Z challenge to myself makes me look up up new words to fit each letter. Xanthocomic has been a fun one!

I bet she was trying for gold initially. It just became yellow.

A bright spark, with a bright future!

125. Y is for Yealing

[Image: 69167323_c68a3267827c7fbd35970ffacd8fecdb_standard.jpg]

Definition: Someone who is the same age as oneself.

Monday and Wednesday are the same age as each other. Actually, Wednesday is the slightly elder of the two - by six weeks - though people always assume it's the other way around.  Still, was a fun word to discover.

They look so wonderful together!

And according to dictionary.com, yealing is a word from the Scottish language, so it is quite appropriate here.

As in there are zero clues that Basil lets slip by him.
