Black and White Printable Paper Dolls…. Marisole Monday & Friends

I’ve been busily converting old color Marisole Monday paper dolls into black and white files. Sometimes, this is a totally painless process, but the older the files get and the more… cranky the line-work becomes. Still, it’s been rather fun and it is probably the only time I will ever do this.

So, rather than a “real” Marisole Monday post today, I offer three old Marisole Monday sets in black and white… all historically themed

First, let’s take a short trip to the 18th century, shall we? Fourth of July paper doll from several years ago. She had a friend, but I haven’t converted that one to black and white yet.

Though personally, I’ve never been that keen on the fashions of the 1910’s, I really love how this paper doll came out in color and I think she’s just as cute in black and white. She was inspired, though I don’t think I mentioned this in the original post in part by this doll from Madame Alexander of CJ Walker.

I do love the 1920s, as you can see from the color version of this paper doll, but I do think that Marisole makes an odd flapper girl.

  1. These are wonderful and are some of my favorite sets. I am a history teacher and I would really love to see more historical paper doll sets from you, maybe the Regency? I know you did one set, but another would be wonderful, or perhaps something earlier like the 1500s or 1400s.

    I bet Marisole would look great as a Tudor lady, or as great as anyone could look in those stiff dresses. I’d also love to see her as a rural pioneer. I hope you’re still taking suggestions. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy checking the site to see what’s new.

    Thank you for all your very hard work.

    1. I’m so glad you like the historical sets. They are my favorites as well, but they are very time consuming. In general, they take me twice to three times longer than a non-historical set. I have often thought about doing something Tudor for Marisole, it just hasn’t worked out very well. Perhaps I will try again.

  2. that’s weird ~ i left a comment on this entry last week. musta gotten eaten.

    anyway, it said something about how much i love all those shoes!

    : D

    1. I rescued the comment from the spam filter. I don’t know what it’s problem was… I did up the settings, because things have been slipping through…. anyway you know how I feel about shoes. 🙂
