Kristin the Gelfling

by Luigi Anzivino

The other day, out of the blue, Carolyn said to me: “I know who Kristin reminds me of! The blond female Gelfling from The Dark Crystal!”. I was skeptical until I google-imaged (I sort of can’t believe I just used that as a verb…) Kira the Gelfling. You be the judge:

Kira or Kristin?
Kira the Gelfling on the left.

The Kristin head-bob
Kristin the Explainer.

I’m thinking, slap an orange jacket on Kira, and she’d be indistinguishable from Kristin. Yes? No? Anyone? Bueller?
