The Vuvalini

With the apocalypse seeming closer every day, I’ve dipped again into the world of Mad Max for inspiration again. Drought, warfare, fires, pollution, age old hatreds……we few who care can try to save the world, but in the end we must find a way to simply survive it. The Vuvalini are among my favorite characters from Fury Road—–where older women are so often dismissed in our current culture, the film portrays them as cagey survivors, whose knowledge, experience, and total bad ass skills and attitudes are respected and needed by the younger women, as all band together to quite literally smash the patriarchy.

Eve is my tribute to these future survivors. She is a custom Takara Cinnamon Girl (EBL) Blythe doll, with a gorgeous Gotland wool reroot. Check out her photo series on Flickr.
