First of all, Happy Labor Day to those in the USA who get the holiday off. Had I realized it was going to be Labor Day when I posted this paper doll, I would have come up with something thematic… but instead we have crazy Rococo dresses. This is what happens when I work several weeks a head.
Though not Labor Day thematic, I love the 18th century… not historically speaking (I really don’t care much about the French revolution or the American revolution or… I digress), but the period is full of wonderful over the top dresses and wigs. I love the wigs.
Not that I would have wanted to wear them, since they were nearly impossible to clean and made of human hair or sheep’s wool…. and that gets gross fast. There are even reports of rats living in women’s wigs…. All I can say to that is “ewww”
Still, crazy wigs are cool in theory, if not in reality.
Now, for a question:
Dorothy D Lafferty asked: So when will you do a “librarian” paper doll?
Probably not anytime soon… though I do seem to draw a lot of books as accessory items for my paper dolls… so that might say something about me.
I suppose I should eventually do a librarian paper doll, but I don’t know what she would wear. What does a stylish librarian wear?
On the other hand, I got to say, Yvonne Craig is pretty darn hot as Batgirl.
And I do have one friend for whom the idea of a Batgirl paper doll would make absurdly happy.
What do you all think a librarian paper doll (Batgirl or not) ought to wear?
