My First Halloween Costume Paper Doll Outfits!


Click Here for Doll

Okay...So I know that I have been missing a lot of posting days lately. And I feel really bad about it. I am so sorry! Things have been hectic. I have been buried under school, work, and battling frequent illnesses. So. I am back today. (...Obviously not a posting day.) But at least I came back!!

Oh, and a very very special congratulations to Liana. (From Liana's Paper Dolls, the most popular paper doll website ever). I hope you are feeling better soon! I am so happy for you!!

Now, onto the outfits.

These took me a total hour to draw, ink and color, and then another hour to edit and ready for posting. And then 25 minutes writing this post. So you can be sure these are good outfits!

From left to right:
the purple dress is pretty much a basic one. Only I did and over skirt. I definitely need to work on that. My favorite part of the dress: The little decorative frog-button. It is so tiny and cute! I think it adds a lot of detail to the dress; without it it would look plain.

The middle dress...It reminds me of several things. Cultural Canadian clothing. I have no idea what cultural Canadian clothing looks like. I don't even know why that reminds me that! It just does. ;) My favorite part of the dress: The overlapping skirt and the fringe. Definitely one of my weaknesses, fringe is.
Another thing it reminds me of is American Indian clothing. Just the colors and the patterns...
And elves. Most certainly elves. Only they would eliminate the fringe.

And lastly, the blue fairy-ish dress!
I wanted something different, instead of a regular dress with sleeves, and some pretty colors. So I did this nifty shawl-like thing with some ribbon. (Almost like more fringe.) I also incorporated some pretty patterns in also. I think I am getting tired of plain colors.


So, there you go.

I hope that was a good first Halloween post. ;D I don't celebrate Halloween, nor do I do anything for Halloween, so this was a little weird. But anyway.

Enjoy!

(this might be the longest post ever!)

Happy New November, also.

Until Thursday.

The Standing Woman Drawing


This is a drawing I did two days ago--on the 25th. The title is not one of my better ones, but it does work pretty well.
I drew this on the back of an envelope. It started as a doodle. But then I  put in some shading...and it just evolved from there.
I was going to do some floral print on her dress, but I decided against it because it would be to much.

What do you think of it?

Outfit for Janelle


Click Here for Doll (Janelle)

This post is for last Saturday and this coming Thursday.  There will be a scheduled post on this coming Saturday.


This is an outfit I drew for Janelle. I was thinking along the lines of "back to school," as tacky as it sounds. I drew this back in September.
I am not overly pleased with the jeans. They turned out more like pants, and the ink smudged along the sides.


Well, I am off. Enjoy.

Dragna, the Fifth Faerie Girl


Click Here for the other Faerie Dolls

This is Dragna. The Fifth Faerie Girl. She is actually late. I should have had her posted several weeks ago. Sorry about that.


I just realized that she doesn't have as many outfits as the other girls. But that is okay.

Dragna has always had a passion for bright clothing that makes a big statement. She has her own garden were she grows the special plants that give the very exotic dyes. She then sews her own clothes, designing every stitch. Then she uses the magical dyes and creates truly individual dresses.

Her favorite activity is making music on her tambourine and running through a field of beautiful, blooming  flowers.

What do you all think?

Check her out on the other site here.

Janelle-Blue Sweater and Wool Skirt

Click Here for Black and White Outfit

This is an outfit for Janelle! Do you recognize it? You should! It is from her main outfit, which was black and white. I colored it, as promised. So there it is.

I want to apologize (once again) that I did not post on Saturday.

I decided to make it a wool skirt because of the texture the coloring pencil. I though it would be a fitting match.

I recently received a comment on a Blog of Paper Dolls Weebly, asking whether or not I got the dress idea from Liana's Paper Doll Blog. I just wanted to let everyone know that most of my dresses and outfits are from my head. I usually will state when I have copied someone else's dress. My work is copyrighted with a creative commons, and so if I copied someone else's work without credit, that would be voiding my copyright.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I try to credit people, and I do not steal other's creative, lovely work. Although I do forget at times, I do my best to credit others.

As for Janelle, I have more outfits coming for her! I think she has real potential.

Winter Outfits for Skye


Click Here for Doll, Skye

These are two outfits for Skye. Winter outfits, to be precise. They are my very favorites! =D I love how the soft browns mix in with the darker browns and the light blues and grays. And I have always loved brown and white striped longsleeved tees. Sadly, I don't own one.
