The choice of clothing for Voodoo dolls is not made out of decorative or aesthetic reasons. Each color has a meaning and symbolizes certain things, and it gives certain power to your doll when dressed. If the material of the doll clothing doesn’t have any special meaning, you should at least pay careful attention to the color of the clothing.
