kokeshi doll charms part 3

i started a new collection in the honor of japanese empresses. these doll ornaments are bit more fancier than the previous ones, with long ribbon 'tails', and gems in their hair. there are four named after actual empresses and the fifth one (with pink hair) is a fictitious harajuku princess. i didn't have any particular empresses picked out in the beginning, it was merely based on their appearances, if they had photos. some i could not find any photo for because the time period of their reign. actually, some reign, others were consorts.
