Image shows Texas A & M Ken doll dressed in medieval clothing. He wears a black cloak. Above his head is a miniature torch, with its flame painted red, orange, and yellow. The doll stands over another male doll, whose face is obscured. The doll laying on the ground wears richly decorated Renaissance clothing with gold embroidery and a fancy muffin cap. The expression on the face of the Texas A & M ken doll is one of grief and regret. Part of the scene to the right appears to be obscured. This is a miniature "Barbie and Ken" version of Romeo and Juliet, and we find ourselves looking at the scene in the tomb, when Romeo has just stabbed Tybalt.

In my upcoming production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, some of our dolls will provide the “extras” in scenes like the Capulet family’s ball and the marketplace. This costume was designed for one of the extras who starts a fight in the marketplace (see photo at right).
