Happy St. Patrick's Day

I know it's early!  But I will be pretty busy this weekend and next week as well.  Here is a paper doll to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.  She is supposed to be a leprechaun.  I actually based her somewhat on a drawing for my DND character gnome Fizzlepop "Poppy" Peppertree.  I was hoping to do curly hair but I just couldn't get it too look how I wanted. She has 6 outfits, all with various shades of green, 1 wig and one extra pair of shoes and a pot of gold.  The bottom outfit two inspired by Irish step dancing costumes and the traditional male leprechaun suit. I also included the page in black and white for those who want to color it.

Paper Dolls

I almost feel as this is missing a page, since most magazine paper dolls are two pages. However, I only have this one page.  It's a paper doll by Gerry Hizer that reminds me of a little doll.  She has 2 dresses, two stocking/leggings, and three hats (another reason I'm unsure it's complete).  This one is dated August 1994 and is from Doll World magazine.

Muny Opera Dressograph Ilse Marvenga

This is a photocopy of the orignal newspaper sheet, which is why it's a bit more yellow in color.  It features the opera star Ilse Marvenga and her costumes from the following operas: Kathie from "the Student Prince" which is the peasant dress and wig, and the other two are from Marietta in "Naughty Marietta".  I really like her blue outfit that the base is wearing as well!  This one is dated July 9, 1933 and was published in the St. Louis Post Dispatch
