Fourth of July

I know it's a little early, but better then being late!  I'm working on another 4th of July doll but I'm not sure it will be done in time.  I used a font from dafont here  The outfits are mix and match and feature red white and blue along with stars and stripes for a patriotic feel.

I haven't named this doll.  Any suggestions?  Names will be voted on in a poll.  So please leave your name ideas in the comments below!  Thanks.

Paper doll Gazette Issue 65

Chatelaine Magazine 1936.

Bonnie G

Here are a few black and white paper dolls from the Paper Doll Gazette Issue 65 Number VI from the year 1983 Volume XIII.  These are not all the paper dolls from the issue.  I do not know if the Paper doll Gazette is still being published anymore. Paper Doll Gazette focuses on articles and has no given theme for paper dolls. The magazine also features a mix of modern and vintage paper dolls.

I've never heard of Chatelaine magazine before, but found one other paper doll on ebay here from the magazine.

Spam Comments

For some reason, I've been getting a lot of Spam comments.  Please note, do NOT attach links to your comments unless it is directly related to the paper doll in some way.  I've been deleting comments that contain links to websites that are not paper doll or doll related.

Dolly Dingle Identification Guide PT 2

Here are three pages from the D.D.I.D. or Dolly Dingle Identification by Joan Carl 1971.  This book includes 2 supplements in a three ring hole punched binder and has black and white photocopies of Dolly Dingle paper dolls to help collectors identify the sets.  The artist is Grace G Drayton.This was before the internet when it was easy to look items up.  I think these pages would be great for kids to color.

Folk Costumes Sketch

Here is a paper doll I've designed using folk costumes from various countries.  I oringally intended this doll to be used for the Around the World theme of OPDAG's Paper Doll Studios but decided to design a Kokeshi inspired paper doll instead.  I may use this base later for other projects or try to clean up this project, but for now I'm putting it aside to work on other things.
