Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Possibly the Cyberpunk/Sci-fi Pinterest Board

A 15th century dress for a paper doll with a headdress based on manuscript illustrations to print and color from paperthinpersonas.com.

I usually try to keep pretty good track of where things come from. I’m frankly not totally sure if I had reference images for this. I went back through my Cyberpunk/Sci-fi Fashion Pinterest board and I didn’t see anything that reminded me of it. But I also drew it a while ago, so I can’t be totally certain.

So, I was thinking a lot about layering and the interesting dynamics that layering can create.

It’s also an outfit that I am a little worried might work better in concept than in execution. The idea is that the various bands wrap around the paper doll’s body and the shorts are layered under the dress/tunic thing.

Given the way the dress/tunic thing is cut it would be rather exposing if there were no shorts involved.

I mean, sure if that’s what your paper dolls are into, no judgement from this corner, but my paper dolls are going to wear the shorts.

I had a really hard time coming up with a color scheme for this set. This color scheme I really liked. I reminds me a little of the 1990s Star Treks- The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager. If it was in more neon colors than I think there would be a Fifth Element vibe.

I also created a pink a teal version. That version is posted over on my Patreon page for my patrons to enjoy. If you’d like to see it, consider becoming a patron. It really does help keep the blog on the internets.

  1. I actually thought original Star Trek (or as my daughter, then aged three, called it, “Space Truck.”) Or maybe Lost in Space! That was the one with the family, right? Can’t remember if the mom wore short-shorts. Probably not, would have been improper.
