New Printable Colouring Page: Baby Doll

This week’s colouring page is based on the traditional carnival character called “ Baby Doll”. This character is meant to be a parody of a mother who has an illegitimate child.The main components of this costume are a pleated dress, a bonnet, and most importantly, a doll. They would walk up to men on the streets and accuse them of being the father of the child. Usually, the masquerader will continue to embarrass the man until the baby doll character is given money. This costume is mostly portrayed by young women, however men will sometimes wear this costume and masquerade with a high-pitched voice for comedic effect.

Happy Colouring!
