Chic Chick from Buxom and Bodacious

So, historically, I’ve been posting a black and white B&B paper doll and then a full color version the next day.

I’ve decided that this technique is not time saving in any real way, unlike my spacing of my Marisole Monday & Friends paper dolls a week apart which saves me so many headaches, so I am going to start posting both and black and white version of the Buxom and Bodacious printable paper doll and the full color version on the same day. I hope no one minds this change, but I don’t think anyone will.

Anyway, to say something intelligent about the paper doll… I actually haven’t got much intelligent to say about the paper doll. This is one of those paper dolls the languished on my computer hard drive for weeks. I thought about working on it, got distracted and then moved on and eventually realized (like on Sunday) that all I really needed to do was layout and file formatting. So, feeling a little foolish I finished her up and here she is.

I confess to not being completely pleased with her color scheme. It feels a little sedate for my usual taste, but not every color scheme is a winner and that’s why the paper doll has a black and white option for coloring yourself.

Lastly, I want to give a shout out to Lina’s Paper Dolls. I’ve had her on my Links Page for a while, but keep forgetting to give her a little spotlight here. As I always say, new paper doll blogs make me happy. Check her out and drop her a comment when you have a chance. Paper doll bloggers need all the encouragement we can get. :)

    I always think about commenting on your posts and then … don’t, but your comment about everyone needing encouragement hit me today. I have printed out a TON of your paper dolls and love them to bits and am very grateful you create them, so thank you! In regards to this set – I really like the dress and the skirt!

    • RLC says:

      Thank you, Kat. I’m glad you like the paper dolls. Generally, I get anywhere from 200 to 400 unique views per post and average about 2 to 3 comments- so less than 1 percent of my readers comment.

      It doesn’t bother me too much, because I have other ways of tracking stats, but I worry about new paper doll bloggers who don’t get any comments and I fear they might get discouraged and give up. I don’t want to see that happen to them, so I try to encourage people to comment.

    I really like the black and white skirt and the tank top with the wavy pattern in the coloured version. I dress that way myself. :D

    Also, what does Buxom and Bodacious mean?

    • Greta says:

      Buxom is an sorta old fashioned term for a “healthy plump” women, usually one with large breasts. It dates from the Middle English.

      Bodacious came from the combination of “bold” and “audacious” and shows up in the English language around 1832. At least, that’s true according to Websters Dictionary.

    I actually really like the color scheme. The teal and purple work together quite nicely. And that sequined-tyedye-colorful top? WANT.

    And thank you for the shout out! It feels pretty good that one of the better paper doll artists on the web mentioned me. :)

    I had fun coloring her. I generally try to forget what you’ve used for colors, but I ended up fairly heavily purple too.

    Now I have to go find the other B&Bs so she has someone to share clothes with. :)
