Pixie: Vera

I have such mixed feelings about this paper doll and I have such mixed feelings about starting a post with the words “I have such mixed feelings…” I usually try to not talk about what I dislike, but I must confess I don’t think the face of the paper doll Vera was very successful. I love her black and gray kimono-esque costume with the pink flowers though, I think that one came out beautifully.

So, I guess maybe you win some and you lose some when it comes to paper dolls.

One of the unique features of paper doll blogging vs. standard paper doll drawing is that I find I hate going to the trouble of inking something only to decide I don’t like it. Don’t mis-understand me, there’s plenty of things in my sketchbooks that will never see the light of day, but I often feel that the goal of posting ontime and regularly is more important then the goal of always being in love with what I post.

While my natural inclination is not to post anything I don’t like, the actual practical consideration is that if I never posted anything I wasn’t totally satisfied with then I would likely only update once a month at most. As it is, I’m learning to be okay with posting paper dolls even when I have mixed feelings about them.

Especially when I really adore their strange futuristic kimono costumes.

    I love her japanese kinda costume, but she does look really very very angry at something. :)

    I’m not sure about angry, serious. That or really kinda stereotypically goth, although that might be the piercings

    I really LOVE the paperdolls tattoo. You should do more dolls with tattoos and peircings and things. I think they’re neat and they’re my favs.

    She does look kind of serious, but her clothes are cool. I like the blue and green skirt, it looks really modern and eye-catching.

    I’ll just take the AWESOME futuristic kimono and put it on one of the other pixies. Seriously, that kimomo deserves an award.

    That link should be fixed. As always, you do a good job of keeping me “honest”.
