Doppel of Magical Girl
Pamela is a name that was invented in the late 16th century by Sir Philip Sidney. The name is widely taken to mean "all sweetness", from the Greek words παν pan ("all") and μέλι meli ("honey"), but there is no evidence regarding what meaning, if any, Sidney intended for it. The name Pamela could be a reference to the novel "Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded" which popularized the fashion of wearing a straw hat (of any style). This fashionable hat was called a Pamela hat. The doppel Pamela wears a top hat on its head.
The name could also be a reference to the song "Pamela" by Toto. The song describes wanting to be side by side with someone forever and asking for the singer's heart to not be broken again. Kokoro yearns to be by Masara's side always and has been previously hurt by her family's dynamics and the result of her wish. It also describes how opposites attract, much like the relationship between Masara and Kokoro.
Pamela's top hat could mean several things. A top hat can symbolize illusions or deception, and was representative of witches in folklore. Kokoro deceived herself into thinking her family would act like it once did if her mother came back. The green color indicates a need for healing, harmony, balance or reconciliation with others or herself which would describe Kokoro's current family dynamics. It can also indicate a need to be more giving, or emotionally "open" which can describe Kokoro's need to open up to others rather than bottling up her emotions.
The purple color on the hat and bow could represent nobility of purpose and endurance as well as a strong belief or attitude. The bow on the hat could indicate a cur on excess emotions. She bottles up her emotions and feelings rather than let them out. The red rose on her hat could mean either her passion for pleasing her partner, or the thorns on the rose could indicate a prickly situation that could hurt others. Kokoro's wish caused the unpleasant situation she finds herself in currently and she greatly wants to be friends with Masara. The doppel's description describes how it represents her pent-up emotions and sprouts sharp thorns to protect itself with.
The shape of the doppel is most reminiscent of a spider. Red spiders represent gentleness and strength combined, which perfectly describes Kokoro's personality. She can be strong and formidable when the need arises, especially if there's a threat to herself or her loved ones. Like spiders, Kokoro works hard to create a home that she and her family can be proud of and she has the patient to realize her dreams. On a Freudian level spider embodies woman. She is the creative force, weaving the designs of life and fate.
However, spiders can also mean that she has been ignoring her own dreams and ideas and she needs to regain the balance in her life that she once lost. Large spiders can mean powerful friends who lurk in the shadows and fend off misfortune, much like how Masara turns invisible and lurks during battle to ensure Kokoro's safety. Things can seem bigger than what they are, so Kokoro must look both inside and outside to find strength she needs to get through the bad times.
The design of the doppel has large pinkish colored buttons on it with green thread. Buttons in dreams suggest that Kokoro could be too refrained and should let loose. Dreams of sewing buttons suggest she is trying to repair the relationship tears in her life, usually due to arguments with her family or friends and the need to patch things up. Pink colors can mean sharing, kindness, and affection. It can be a symbol for the need for unconditional love, usually motherly love. This usually means that the dreamer did not bond with their mother or the mother did not give unconditional love at birth. Kokoro's mother divorced her father and left the family behind, which is the basis of Kokoro's wish.
