Pippi Longstocking!

You might wonder about my title" Pippi Longstocking".  Well, I made this doll because I got inspired by  the looks of Pippi Longstocking.  If you are not familiar with the character, read below.....

Pippi Longstocking (Swedish Pippi Långstrump) is a fictional character in a series of children's books by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren,
Nine-year-old Pippi is unconventional, assertive, and has superhuman strength, being able to lift her horse one-handed without difficulty. She frequently mocks and dupes adults she encounters, an attitude likely to appeal to young readers; however, Pippi usually reserves her worst behavior for the most pompous and condescending of adults. Pippi's anger is reserved for the most extreme cases, such as when a man ill-treats her horse. Like Peter Pan, Pippi does not want to grow up. She is the daughter of a buccaneer captain and as such has adventurous stories to tell. She has four best friends, two animals (her horse and a monkey) and two humans, the neighbor's children Tommy and Annika. (Wikipedia)

I like Pippi Longstocking outward appearance, her strength and her love for her pets. But not her unrespectful behavior towards adults. Growing up without an adult guidance maybe was the reason for it. 

Maybe I can relate to Pippi, taking responsiblity for myself at an early age and learned to depend on myself against this  cruel world. But I was so lucky to find that there is a God who loves me and can protect me from this evil world. I only need to put my trust in Him.
