This newspaper panel is from the artist Laura Brock and features a doll named Lois along with two outfits and a hat in black and white to be colored.  The newspaper has aged and discolored. I believe this is from the Seattle Star newspaper.  It is dated November 5, 1933.

To Paaklædningsdukker: Aage og Else. This old newspaper sheet is Danish.  It features a boy and a girl.  The girl has 3 outfits, the boy also has three outfits along with hats.  It is two colors, red and blue along with black.  It is from 1919 (07?) Some paper damage along edges but overall nice quality

Last Inktober 31

Inktober is now over. Day 31 was a Free spot, to do any theme desired.  I did goth lolita inspired mix and match pieces. My next project?  Perhaps a Thanksgiving paper doll?  I have to work on school stuff though.  Had fun with this challenge and plan to do this next year too

My prompt list for the month can be found here.

Inktober 28 29 30

Inktober is just about over. Can't believe it's HALLOWEEN!  Day 28 theme was mermaid.  I tried to make it different from the sea nymph I made for the mythical creature theme.  I tried to create some mix and match options and also did a scallop mermaid gown (pain to draw). Day 29 was zombies, so lots of torn clothing and blood stains.  Again, focused on mix and match features.  Day 30 was vampire.  I kept drawing spider webs for some reason...  Mix and match tops and bottoms along with a blood stained dress.  Today is a mystery/free theme.  Can you guess what I'm doing? It will be posted sometime tomorrow or Friday.

Inktober 25 26 27

Still going!  October is almost over and I managed to keep up with this project so far. Day 25 was Super Heros.  I decided on a star theme.  The first hero is Atomic Star, a classic super hero.  Then the second is Star Dust, a more modern slightly sexy hero, and finally is Secret Star, a spy like super hero similar to Black Widow.  Some boots and a mask to complete the set. 
For  Day 26 elements theme I did a fire dress, a leaf/wood nature dress with bark corset, a periodic table of elements shirt, a pair of capris with clouds for wind, and a raincoat with rain print for water along with rain boots.
Day 27 was Zodiac so I included a dress with zodiac symbols, a shirt with the zodiac circle, a pencil skirt with the constellations and another top with the Libra symbol (I'm a Sagittarius but Libra seemed like the easiest to draw).  Also included is a Chinesese style dress called a cheongsam with the Chinese characters for the Chinese Zodiac (I traced these so they would be as accurate as possible), as well as a pair of baggy bell bottoms with stylized animals of the Chinese Zodiac.  Finally I'm not sure about the last dress because it's based on the Zodiac Killer symbols, might be considered tasteless but I feel like it would be something sold at Hot Topic around Halloween.  She also has a pair of slippers.
