Maiden of the North: Printable Paper Doll Page to Color

nordic-viking-logo-bwVikings… Vikings… Vikings… Okay, not really. I mean, these are totally fantasy Viking outfits, but I have had Vikings on the mind ever since I did my historically accurate (for the given value of accurate) Viking paper doll and I found myself returning to the Viking look.

So, what makes these Viking inspired or Norse inspired, as I tend to call it. Well, the big thing are those dwarf-brooches. You can read all about the actual drawf brooches in my Viking article, but I wanted to include them here. Her shoes are also based on actual Viking finds in York, so they’re also a nod to the whole Norse/Viking thing.

I added fur trim to her gowns and did a lot of pattern. I wanted to get to use multiple colors in these gowns, so the patterns help with that.

Our model today is Meaghan of the Marisole Monday & Friend’s family. This is the fifth Meaghan set and probably the last one of the year. I’m getting to that point where I start planning for 2016. Thinking about 2016 and making sure I have enough backlog to get me through the Holidays. I always travel mid-December to visit family, so I tend to try to have things ready before I depart.

That means… backlog, backlog, backlog!

(It helps if you say it three times in an increasingly cheery voice. That’s how the backlog fairies know you really need their help.)

As always, I love to hear for you guys, so feel free to ask questions or leave thoughts in the comments.

  1. I really love this set! Just beautiful!

    On a separate note…I didn’t realize when I last emailed I had already missed the doll deadline. My apologies. I really wanted to do that, just ran out of time. Sigh. I guess that is an issue for all of us isn’t it?

  2. i love the pretty designs on the dresses. they’re going to look stunning in color. in my head i’m imagining icy blues, but maybe that’s just because you brought up the whole icy norse viking thing.

  3. I want to thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for such lovely paper dolls. I stumbled on your site by accident and I am hooked. I was looking for something to give me ideas on making a collage and I found your wonderful dolls. So I am printing them to share with my 11 year old, before she thinks she’s too old ( I might be too late, but I’ll still enjoy them) and her Girl Scout Troop leader because she said she loves paper dolls. Your designs are so much fun!!!

  4. Oh, and Rachel, all the groomsmen, the bride and the groom are all on my Pinterest board. I used Marisole and Marcus for this. I have also drawn a doll base of Dorothy the Dinosaur that I will post later.

  5. The dress on the far right is my favorite, mostly because it’s the most historically accurate. (Do I like your medieval historical sets best? Yeah, maybe… ).
