Two dolls, 30 detailed period costumes from Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Othello, The Tempest, The Merchant of Venice, Macbeth, Henry V, Richard III, and 7 other great plays. Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Ophelia, Othello and Desdemona, Anthony and Cleopatra, together with memorable characters from 11 other plays by William Shakespeare, spring vividly to life in this charmingly rendered paper doll collection. Two dolls, Richard and Elizabeth, are accompanied by a wardrobe of 30 elaborately designed period costumes for the characters mentioned above, as well as Petruchio and Katharina in The Taming of the Shrew, Oberon and Titania in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Prospero and Miranda in The Tempest, Beatrice and Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing, Portia and Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, and others. Tights and doublets, floor-length robes, capes, ruffled collars, and tartans are included among the gentlemen's costumes; flowing medieval garments, elegant fur-trimmed gowns, classically draped Greek costumes, and other outfits constitute the ladies' wardrobes. A great way to introduce youngsters to Shakespeare and the immortal characters created by the Bard, these dolls and their meticulously detailed costumes will be welcomed by collectors and anyone fascinated by the Elizabethan era. Brief synopses of plays are included.
