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.
