Adding life to the scene

I spent a fun afternoon and evening dollmaking and dressing. The first saloon patron is the sheriff.
He enjoys spending his evenings playing poker - card shark coming in the future. Stay tuned! Since this photo was taken I added some detail to his holster and used dimensional gel on the six shooter (made of paper) to make it look more real.
Miss Rose wants her staff to be well dressed and the bartender does look sharp. The fabric for his waistcoat came from a necktie I purchased today at the Salvation Army store.
He looks right at home behind the bar.

I need names for these two. I am open to suggestions.

The Brimble has shipped so hopefully I'll be starting it soon.

Te han quedado geniales los dos. Los nombres que les pondria serian al sheriff le pondria Sheldon y al camarero Douglas o Jenkins.
Besitos, May

These looks fabulous De! How about looking at some texas/western films?

You must've had some inspiration from some characters from films to develop an image of these dolls? Who do they remind you of?

I mean from the film "The Best Little Whore House In Texas" you have Deputy Fred and Sheriff Ed Earl. But I'm not sure if they fit the sheriff guy there.
