Silk and Steel: Printable Paper Doll with Armor

Color schemes are always challenging. I wanted to keep the colors simple, since so much of it was going to be “silver grey”. As I see it, the “leather” can either be brown or black, but I think it looks off when there is a mix. After some debate, I settled on black and then decided to use white as a contrast color, rather than the more traditional dark shade. The rich red color has a lot of blue into it which keeps it from feeling too “blood red” and softens it against the black and the white.

Okay, so a question…

Dreamed asked: If you could travel to any time era, in any part of the world, when and where would you go? Why?

Wow… hard question. I have no idea… not very helpful is it?

I guess if I had to go somewhere and visit a period of history, I would want to visit Mainz in Germany when Gutenberg was printing his bible in the mid-1400’s, just so that I could see the press. A little odd, but as a rare books person, I just really want to see it.

I would not want to have to wear the clothing of the early 1400s… that just does nothing for me.

On an utterly unrelated note, I found this beautiful Valentine paper doll on Flickr. I love the way water color looks when it’s well done. Makes me almost want to try traditional media… almost.

  1. I don’t do many costumes from movies and I have no plans to do a Hunger Games set. I just don’t find copying costumes from movies very interesting. I have done a Harry Potter set and a Star Trek set. Toria, over at a Paper Closet, has done a beautiful job on the Hunger Games already, so I don’t really feel any need to fill in that gap.

    Thanks for asking though, I always love to hear what people would be interested in seeing. 🙂

      1. It looks like a skirt, but then it has a fold of fabric that looks kind of like a sleeve on the left side….
