Marisole Monday: Fantasy gowns in…vibrant colors

Today’s printable paper doll is so bright, you might find yourself thinking “Good god, it’s radioactive” and you wouldn’t be wrong. She’s extremely a little eye-watering, I confess, but I had a lot of fun. Like Kandi, I wanted to play with the contrast of bright color to dark skin. Also, once I colored all the clothing and I looked at my Marisole skin tone color palette, I realized that most of them clashed with that obnoxious delightful green color.

Seriously, if there was ever a good post to do in black and white and in color… this was it. I doubt I would have had the gumption to go this bright if I wasn’t going to also post her in black and white.

And now to answer a question….

So, B asked: Are you going to make another set of Flock dolls? It’d be pretty cool to see fairy tales, or maybe cyberpunk!

The short answer is: Yes.

The longer answer is that the next set of Flock paper dolls will be modern and will consist of the six dolls and a over a hundred pieces of clothing. After that I want to do smaller sets, because seriously the whole “hundred” pieces of clothing was a bit much. I have a “noir punk” set in process and a sort of futuristic set as well. Neither is close to being done though and the casual set is very close. As in, I hoping sometime this week or next, close.

I have to say I love the idea of doing something fairy tale inspired… sort of a bad ass Red Ridinghood and Cinderella set… I shall have to think about that more.

Speaking of the Questions, Tuesday is the last day to enter my drawing. I know I said yesterday that I would draw a name on Tuesday, but I realized for it to be open for two weeks it was going to have to go until Tuesday until midnight. I’ll announce the winner Wednesday. Hopefully along with a Dictionary Girls update, but since I don’t have one yet… well… we’ll see.

I’ve been thinking about doing a series of posts about things I wish I knew about paper doll blogging back when I started paper doll blogging… is that something people would be interested in? I mean, it’s not terribly paper doll related.

    When I see these clothes, I think of “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, especially the ever-lasting gob stoppers!
    Don’t you?

    More Flock dolls! That’s awesome, can’t wait. Also reading posts about paper doll blogging would be interesting, I don’t know much about blogging in general and would definitely learn something.

      @Julie and Kat

      If you could learn one or two things about running a blog, what would you want them to be?

    Well, I suppose something like mistakes made, and what you would have done differently had you known, etc…

    I’m so sorry that I don’t know the name of the person who makes these amazing paper dolls but please hear me out! So I was thinking let’s say you go to a ball…when it is over do you sleep with the dress on or change into pj’s? So why don’t you make a paper doll that has fashionable pj’s…?

    Hello, Ms. Rachel! I just want to tell u how ur dolls inspire me. I luv ur blog! I was writing a tiny book about elves, and, what do u know, elf dolls appear on ur website! I printed them out as fast as I could. They were perfect! I tried to draw like u, but my dolls r not that good. I especially like the fantasy dolls, like fairies, mermaids, princesses, ect. Every Monday, Mommy lets me pick 1 doll. SO HARD 2 CHOOSE WHICH 1! They r all SOOO beautiful. Thank u 4 making them! – Maely.
