I planned on posting these yesterday but I was in and out of the house all day.  Friday the 12th's theme was Sports.  I don't know why I chose sports, I don't like sports.  I only made two outfits.  Soccer/Football and Race Car Driver.  For the 13th the theme was Space/Robot.  I did vintage inspired retro Jetson's like mix and match pieces.  I imagine the colors in metallic silver and bright neon accents.

Inktober 10th and 11th




The last few days I have felt exhausted.  School has been going smoothly at least, but I'm lacking some serious energy.  So today I took off of work so I could get some rest!  Today's theme was Occupation/Work.  And I will admit, I'm lazy and uninspired at the moment, so the outfits I made were scrubs for nurse/doctor and a business suit.  I made them mix and match and I will be making more mix and match options.  As for yesterday's theme, Hobby I created a few other mix and match pieces.  Hobbies like painting with a smock and painters pants. An extra top is for train collecting but no bottoms.  They wouldn't fit on the page.   I also made two outfits, one for Doll collecting with a doll in hand and Barbie inspired print and Scrap booking with cute graphic top and photo print skirt.

In case you are curious the fonts I have been using on these pages are Spider and inkyflutterby both are from Dafont.com

Inktober Oct 8th and 9th







The 8th was Monday and the theme was animals.  Being at staff day I was quick to pick the first things that came to my mind so I have a cat girl, bunny girl and bird dress.  October 9th was food, at first I kept drawing fruit so I tried to do other things too.  I made some more mix and match outfits.  It ended up as two pages, simply because all of the outfits would not fit onto one page.  She has a ice cream cone top with desert print skirt, an apple turtlenck with banana pants.  the next page is a pineapple dress, a watermelon top with matching shorts, a lemon shirt with citrus skirt, pizza top with Swiss cheese Capri, and finally a candy corn dress (though hard to tell when not colored). Today's theme will be posted tomorrow.

So all of my plans for this weekend changed, giving me a little free time to work on Inktober. Today's theme is Cosplay.  I did costume for the  anime character Rem from Re:Zero-Starting a life in another world as well as She-Ra and Sailor Mercury (no wig, just the costume).  Tomorrow I have a staff day, perhaps I will have time to draw but may not post til Wednesday.

Paper Doll Collaboration 2018 September Sports


Is it already the end of September!  This month has been crazy with two jobs and school.  Above is the outfits for this theme, which was Sports!  I'm not a sports person, I don't watch anything except football when I'm over at someones house or racing.  I choose my favorite sports in school.  I liked Tennis, Basketball (though I'm terrible at it cause I'm short) and karate/martial arts.  Working on a Halloween paper doll and preparing for inktober (two projects) and of course, working on school stuff (may post soon).

Prince, Snow White (as labeled on back)

Cinderella
This jointed paper doll set features fairy tale characters such as Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs, the Prince and Cinderella.  This is not a complete set and is missing some figures, like Red Ridding Hood and the wolf.  Also note the Prince little short arts, he's missing a upper sleeve!  These were designed by Clara G. Dennis for the Milton Bradley company. no date on this but I found another Mother Goose set dated 1915 so around that time. In the set I have, only Cinderella has an extra outfit.  I've been feeling a bit burned out lately, so I may take a break from the blog soon.

Paper Doll Collaboration 2018 July Patriotic

I can't believe this month is over!  I've been so busy I almost forgot about this month's theme.  The theme for July was Patriotic inspired by the 4th of July. Image these clothes in red, white and blue colors.  I designed 4 outfits and 1 pair of shoes to go with the doll.  Stars are easier to draw on the computer then by hand.  I made a few quick patterns to help fill in the fabric designs. 

 Be sure to check out the other great contributors to this fun collaboration project, links are below.
