Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Xena: Warrior Princess, Ancient Roman Armor, and The Color Red
Absurd fantasy paper doll armor with weapons in black and white and color. From paperthinpersonas.com.

Happy Friday! I try to save paper doll pieces that I really like for the end of the week. I think of them as a fun treat.

So, I know I have mentioned in the past my love of Xena: Warrior Princess. I also know I have mentioned my strange affection for absurd fantasy armor that wouldn’t really protect you, but darn it looks good. So, today I am pleased to provide both a nod Xena and a nod to “Wow, I don’t think that armor will work like you think armor should work.”

But seriously for a second, I think sometimes there is a lot to be said for embracing absurdity. And since I embraced absurdity with this set, I will not apologize for giving her boots high heels.

Along with the armor and boots, she has fun weapons- a pair of swords and a spear. I actually had fun trying to make them all match in design motifs. These are the thing I think about when designing paper dolls.

So, my dear readers, should fantasy armor be practical or absurd? Let me know what you think in a comment.

    Really like this one!
    Absurd it good!

  2. Julie says:

    This feels very Roman to me, so maybe it isn’t totally absurd. Love the boots and your amazing knack for creating shoes!

  3. Emily says:

    I agree with Julie, this armor would be useless in battle,but the short sword and the skirt of the armor look kind of roman

  4. boots says:

    i love it!!! aside from the shoes it’s not actually that absurd given the shin guards. the neck and the arms are where it pushes “absurd”.

    i like both the practical and the absurd–so bring it all on! : D
