Here are several comic panels of Jane Arden's Wardrobe featuring at least one costume like outfit.  From bottom to top: nurse and cigarette girl. Flamenco dancer and Hawaiian dancer. Maid and Hawaiian. Clown and majorette.  Nurse, pirate, and Chinese gown.  Historical gown.  Gesha.  Dance costume, Italian costume and Spanish costume.  masquerade dress.  My favorite, chicken! and an Asian gown. And finally at top a Polish gown.  Note, none of these are from October or Halloween!

Halloween Fairy

It's October!  I'm very eager for Halloween.  Here is a little paper doll I've designed quickly inspired by fairy themed Halloween Costumes.  I used Adobe Illustrator for this doll.  She has four costumes, three hairstyles, and three pairs of shoes.  The base doll was created using this image below.  I have a few more Halloween projects in the works.
