Dorothy Mackaill

Here is another newspaper sheet from the St Louis Dispatch. This movie Dressograph features Dorothy Mackaill with two dresses, a top with matching skirt, two pairs of shoes, and accessories.  This paper doll was published December 27th, 1931.  I've been fighting the summer blues.  It's been 100+ here and it's hard to be motivated to do anything.  Not to mention working two jobs is starting to wear me out, it's hard to find time for anything either.

Jane Arden's Wardobe

Been super busy.  Having trouble getting pics off my camera from the convention, decided to fuss with it later.  Trying to get some motivation to work on projects.  Every time I try to start I go, "Now what was I going to draw?"  The idea comes back later in the middle of work...  Anyway, here's another lovely Jane Arden newspaper doll from 1930s,  3-3-35 to be exact.  She has two dresses, a coat,  two hats, and a top with a skirt.

Alice in Wonderland

This set is based on Disney's Alice in Wonderland animated movie which was derived from a book of the same name written by Lewis Carroll.  The characters featured are Alice, the White Rabbit, and the Mad Hatter.  The Cheshire cat is also included, but does not have any clothing.  The book has 6 page of outfits, 4 pages for Alice and a page each for the two other characters.  Of course, most of the costumes do not appear in the movie.  This book was published by Whitman in 1976.

Quick 4th of July paper doll

A very quickly done paper doll for the 4th of July.  Her hair reminded me of Pinkie Pie from my little pony, so it's pink.  She has three patriotic outfits.
