Pixie & Puck: Philippa… Named for a Queen

Another fantasy Medieval sort of Pixie Paper Doll for the this week. I have been on this fantasy Pixie kick for a while… I have one more of a similar style to post and then I shall have finished my flight of fancy in this direction until I get distracted and decide to turn to something else.

She is named for Philippa of Hainault who was the Queen consort of King Edward III of England in the 14th century. Philippa of Hainault is buried in Westminster Cathedral, so you can go visit her there should you be in London and feel like it. Westminster is pretty darn cool, I have to confess.

So, the response to the new lips on the Pixies has been uniformly negative. I tend to agree with the concerns leveled by my readers and therefore won’t be continuing in the style after this paper doll set.

  1. The new lips do look a little strange, but there’s nothing terrible about how they look.

    And Paper Doll Garden isn’t online anymore.

  2. she kind of reminds me of a narnia princess (:

    and i am sad that the pere doll garden is no longer on line she also had some really beauty ful paper dolls and dresses…i wondered why i could not get on to the websight any more ):

  3. Thanks for letting me know about the Paper Doll Garden, B, I will remove it from my links page. I’m also sorry to see her go. I really liked her paper dolls.

    I think the thing I dislike about the lips is that they all look the same to me… which isn’t what I look for in a paper doll. Still, they were a fun experiment.

    They’ll show up again, I’m sure, in another form on some other paper doll.

  4. I’m gonna miss Paper Doll Garden too, such beautiful clothing. She makes me want to try painting paper dolls myself.

    I love it when your dolls have weapons, my paper cuts feel less silly when they come from a battle axe. 🙂 This set is amazing, I think it’s a new favorite. The braids are so cute.

  5. Just wanted to pass along that there is a book of regency fashion plates called Fashions in the Era of Jane Austen, free for the kindle on amazon. The book itself is $55, but right now is free for the kindle if you have one. Might be worth taking a peek!

  6. Hey Rachel!

    Love this paper doll. Someday, I’m going to make magnetic paper dolls of all my favorites on your website and put them in my hope chest for my future child.

    Just so you know, your website is the only one I check on a regular basis. It’s my coffee break favorite!

    P.S. I made a little girl paper doll that I thought you might like. Of course, mine aren’t nearly as polished as yours, but I still have fun making them. 🙂 Her she is: http://thinkinlikegavroche.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/adelaide-paper-doll-1.jpg

  7. Please make me a paper doll. I would prefer one with ginger red hair, blue highlights, blue eyes, and a warrior theme. I would love some fuzzy boots!
