In addition to Facial Painting, Flocking and Rooted Lashes, This Ken Features:
From the Kingdom of Swaziland, a country landlocked within South Africa, comes our Swazi Ken who was inspired by the famed warrior Shaka ka Senzangakhona aka Shaka Zulu known as one of the greatest Zulu kings.
Our fierce warrior Ken wears a Shaka inspired ensemble that begins with an impressive collar of black satin which has been covered in hand-sewn beadwork in shades of black, white and hints of red.
Running along the entire edge of the hand-beaded collar is a border of lush faux fur in white with striped strands running throughout.

Panels have been further accented with lattice borders of hand-sewn red seed beads.

Calves have been fitted with black satin bands which also have been richly hand-beaded in black, white, and red and also feature the same unusual faux fur as in collar.
