Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations:  Loons and… well, Loons. That’s actually all I got. 


Of all the dresses I designed for this week, the only one I was really worried people wouldn’t get was this one. Loons are beautiful birds for which I have always had a fondness, but they are hardly as well known as the Raven or the Flamingo. Interestingly enough, the Loon is the state bird of Minnesota, where my mother grew up. As a child, I had a puzzle my grandfather made featuring a loon, so I have fond associations with the birds.

Well, now that the week of bird masquerade gowns is wrapped, I am curious which one people liked the most. So, let me know in a comment. Was your favorite the Owl, the Flamingo, the Raven, the Hummingbird or today’s Loon?

  1. My favorite is the raven. I love Ravens. I think the design of the dress resembles a Spanish flamenco dress. I have enjoyed this week’s theme of masquerade ball gowns. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Thank you.

  2. This loon is beautiful! When I lived in northern New Hampshire, sometimes we’d see these on the lakes. I love this whole series! Make more gowns 🙂

  3. This dress is so beautiful! My grandparents grew up in Minnesota 🙂 and I’ve heard the story of “How the Moon gave the Loon its Neckring” so many times that when you said you were a loon, I couldn’t wait to see this! I love this dress – all of these dresses – and this series has been so exciting. Thank you 😀

  4. I adore this loon, but I think my favorite is still the flamingo. Though this entire series makes me want to have a bird themed ball.

  5. For me, it’s a toss up between the loon and the owl. I prefer the loon’s boots, but I prefer the owl’s mask/wig. So it’ll probably depend on if I’m in a black mood or a brown mood. Today I’m in more of a brown mood, so owl it is.

  6. I love this!! I was googling for loon costume ideas and there aren’t a whole lot out there but this is genius!! THANK YOU!

    Loons are one of my absolute favorite animals. I fell in love with them on a remote part of Georgian Bay growing up (granite and pines and water– the one place in the world that I’m most homesick for). Later on I realized that I also love them because they require pristine and QUIET wilderness– they are so sensitive that even a quiet canoe can scare them off the nest. And that’s exactly how I feel as an autistic person– I need more quiet than most. I need loon habitat!
