Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations:  Dicken’s Christmas Carol, Vaguely Victorian Fashion and Google Image Search

I have never done a Christmas paper doll before. The way I’ve always figured it, there are plenty of Christmas paper dolls and I didn’t see much I could add to the genre. But since I have switched to a daily outfit posting schedule, I figured I might try it this year. So, today we have some Dickens caroling costumes for the Sprites printable paper dolls.

Dickens wrote the Christmas Carol on 1842, but there’s nothing historically correct about these outfits. In fact, I refused to do any historical research, though I did Google “Dickens Caroling Costumes” to get some ideas.

Some of the college students I work with would call that research, but I try not to think about that too much.

In fact, I would call these costumes and not clothing, because they aren’t historically correct in anyway. I knew I wanted the lady to have a bonnet and cape and for the guy to have a top hat. Beyond that, I just had fun.

I chose a holly pattern for the skirt, because I thought it was holiday and old fashioned without being too obvious.

Anyway, tomorrow is the first night of Hanukah and Christmas is on Sunday, so I would like to wish everyone who is celebrating either a really wonderful holiday. And for those who aren’t celebrating, I hope you have a great weekend with, or without, family.

    Welcome to the world of Christmas paper dolls! Your first foray into the genre is awesome! These are really lovely.

    I’m not a big theater person, BUT if you ever get a chance to see A Christmas Carol in the round, do it! There’s a theater near me that has being putting it on for over 25 years and it’s great! (http://www.nsmt.org/a-christmas-carol-16.html)

    Happy holidays to you and yours 🙂

    These are beautiful! What a wonderful set. I didn’t get in the Christmas spirit this year as much as I usually do, don’t know why. Oh, well. Hope you have a very Happy Hanukah.
