Well, my interpretation of it. It's quite a subtle detail that really adds ALOT to Gothel's outfit.
So, I found out the other day that there is an official Mother Gothel doll that's only avaliable from the Disney Store...in the UK. I MUST HAVE IT!!!
I would also like to note the fact that my Mother Gothel Retro Paper Doll was the FIRST "doll" version of the character! Just sayin...haha
