She's back.

Charlotte Brontë-saurus. First seen here*, but now we have another sighting of this elusive creature. Apparently she now lives in Minnesota and has children in South Dakota. This is clearly not the same Charlotte Brontë-saurus, but you never know. I mean, she's out there somewhere (unless she has been microwaved into action-figure oblivion). A Brontëana reader reports a cartoon dinosaur named Emily, but in our professional opinion we believe we can discount the report as not being a valid sighting of the even more elusive Emily Brontë-saurus, since she is not a cartoon as far as we know.

*Well, not 'seen' per se…

Brontë Sisters Paper Dolls

Yesterday I brought you paper dolls of some characters from the Brontë novels, and now, thanks to Cristina, I bring you the sisters themselves (or reasonable facsimiles).

The sisters only have one dress each, but they are very fine dresses. I'm not sure what they would think of these likenesses, however! I'm sure Charlotte would have something to say about it all…

In case it isn't easily apparent, they are from left: Charlotte Brontë, Emily Brontë, and Anne Brontë.
