I Need Your Input!

Hello, everyone!

No, I am not posting today because I won't be able to post tomorrow. I just wanted some input from you.

I have some questions.

  • Is there anything in particular that you would like to see on the blog? (Type of doll, a series, historical kind of things, special time periods, ect.)
  • Do you have an idea of a dress that you would like me to do? 
  • Are there any special necklines or sleeves or skirts or bodices that you think would look cool for me to do?
  • Did you see a celebrity outfit that you really like?
  • Any patterns or special color combinations? 
  • Really pretty jewelry? 
  • Some awesome shoes you saw in the store?

    If you said yes to any of those questions, please please let me know. I would like to make some dresses and outfits that are reader-inspired. Please either comment in this post or any other, or send me an email. (paperdollblog@yahoo.com)

    Thank you!
    Monica

    Ciara Dress, Skye Dress, Drawing

    This post is continued off of the other one, right below this one. I was having (some more) technical difficulties so it wasn't working. I was getting frustrated, so I decided to post two posts.

    I apologize for being late. I had school to do, which I got done. Thank you Rachel for the good wishes. =]

    Here are the PDF links for the clothes below:

    PDF for Ciara's Dress
    PDF for Skye's Dress

    Hope that works.

    I don't really have anything to say about the clothes, except that they are color-yourselves. So if you color them and would like to have them featured on this blog, feel free email them to me. =] paperdollblog@yahoo.com

    The Greek Chibi is the second one in the series. Not one of my best (I had trouble with her skin color,) but I like her enough to post her.

    Well, that is all.

    The next post will be on May 1st.

    Black Cape with Beads for Skye


    This is another cape for Skye. She likes those a lot. But this one has beads on. Pretty little beads.  Plus boots. Big, bulky brown boots. Topped with a choker necklace and a silver belt, Skye has everything she needs to look great any afternoon. (In cold-ish weather. This would be severely warm in 70 or 65 degrees!) ;]

    The choker necklace didn't turn out as I planned. I had wanted it black lace to match the cape, but it messed     up. I need to work on my lace-making skills. 

    I have been playing around with adding some nice, attractive graphics to my pictures. Do you like them? Dislike them? Any suggestions on where to get more? Do you think they add to the outfit or take away from it?

    As tomorrow is Easter, I have decided to post on Saturday (evening) to save time tomorrow. =] I hope you don't mind. All though, as Paper Doll People are usually laid-back, I don't think you guys should have a problem with it. haha. 

    I don't know if any of you have noticed, but there are some technical difficulties on the Paper Dolls page, and the work on the Links page has been post-poned. Also, the PDF page is slow coming. Since every outfit has it's own PDF, it's hard to get them all in! Toria--if you read this, could you send some tips? Thank you! =]

    Well, I hope no one minds the long post! I actually had some things to say this evening.

    The next post will be on April 28th, skipping the 26, but combining the two posts together into one. (I have a lot of school to do that  day, and blogging just isn't at the front of your mind when you need to write a 5-page biography!!) =] Thank you all for your patience!

    This is a new doll! I think she shall be one of the main dolls, too. Along with Skye and Ciara.

    She is Chinese. Her name is Emi. She has different hairdo's and lots of different clothes. (Which all will be posted in good time.) =]

    So, there you go. Have some fun, now. =]

    Click Here for Doll (Skye)
    Click Here for PDF of Outfit

    Hello!

    Since I missed Sunday, that post is combined into this one. We have a drawing and an outfit for Skye.



    First off, this is a cute little chibi girl. She is part of the new Chibi Series, which will run from April into May. I posted her first because she is one of the best. 




    And this is an outfit for Skye. Matching her personality, it is very outgoing.
    See above for PDF. 

    And lastly, the contest that was running to April 14th has ended. No one entered, so there is no prize. =/ A new contest might happen. Please vote in the poll below.

    POLL WAS REMOVED BECAUSE OF TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. PLEASE SEE THE NEWEST POST FOR THE POLL.

    Thank you,

    This is a dress for Ciara. I don't know what to call it, sadly.

    I thought I did well on this dress. Personally, it is one of my favorites.

    Here is a summer dress for Skye. Not much to say about it. The brown part in the v-neck is supposed to be brown lace, but turned out horrible. I call this the Peach Dress.

    Sad Girl--A Drawing



    Today all I can give you is a drawing. No outfit.

    This is a sketch that I did when I was supposed to be getting ready for bed. I have entitled it "Sad Girl". Very creative, yes?

    It was just a quick sketch... nothing really profound. =]

    That's it.

    Once again, I have nothing intelligent to say.

    Flow-y Skirt and Blue Shrug for Skye--A Summer Outfit





    This is a summer outfit for Skye--a little early, perhaps, but it's here. = ]
    I recently (last Monday) wore a shrug something like this (last Monday). It also was over a white shirt. I took pictures, so I am going to make it a What I Wear set. So there is something to look forward too. Since I have a schedule all set and ready, I am not sure when it might post. 

    That's it for now. =]

    Spring Shawl for Skye

    Click here for PDF
    Click here for the Doll (Skye)

    This is an outfit for Skye, and it is a cozy gray shawl with cotton sweat pants. Very comfortable.

    And she has a different hair-style. I succeeded after many failed attempts. I am very happy that that turned out the way it did. I was thinking it wasn't going to work, but, it did!


    Thank you for all the comments! I appreciate them!

    Ashita, if you see this, I wanted to let you know that I will post the outfit you requested soon. It's taking longer than usual. Sorry about that.

    That's about all I have to say. =]

    Silver Dress for Skye with Sapphire-Studded Belt

    Click here for the Doll (Skye)

    Ah, another day of posting!

    This is a silver day-gown for Skye. I like it a lot. The brown belt is studded with precious sapphires--which Skye takes great pride in. (So do I, because I can't wear stud-belts, so when my paper dolls do, I am very happy for them.) =]

    There is a PDF for this dress! Look above. =]

    I think that is it. Sorry for the short post.

    Ciara's Indian Dress


    Click Here For the Doll (Ciara)
    Click Here for the PDF

    Hello, there!
    Finally, after a long time, I am back. Things have slowed down some, so I think I will be able to post all the time now. I am all organized and I have a schedule, too. So that's all good.

    I still have school, but I will get through that. I will have school well into June, I think.

    There are lots of great dresses and outfits and new dolls coming! Just stay tuned!

    Now, about the dress: Please let me know if it doesn't fit. I need to know. I was a little messed up on my math, I think. I am not sure. So please let me know if it does not fit.
    This is an Indian dress that I made up. The jewelry may not be true Indian, but, oh well. It should work.
    Do you like it?

    Monica
    Next post will be on April 3.  =]
