Just like last year, Julie of Paper Doll School, Boots of Popculture Looking Land, and Miss Missy of Miss. Missy’s Paper Dolls and I are all creating another collaborative paper doll for 2018. Just like last year, each month there will be a different paper doll theme.

Today’s paper doll base was drawn by Miss Missy of Miss. Missy’s Paper Dolls. I drew my own face and head. For the hair, I was inspired by Boots paper doll Genevieve’s hair . It’s a way of drawing hair I used to do more of and I really like how it looks for a black and white paper doll. So, I thought I would explore it for this 2018 Paper Doll Collaboration.

The theme for January was “Favorite Fairy Tale.” I confess that while I drew a mermaid from The Little Mermaid, it is not my favorite fairy tale. My favorite fairy tale is actually The Twelve Dancing Princesses or possibly East of the Sun, West of the Moon. And then I also adore a lot of the fairy tales written by Oscar Wilde… Anyway, picking a favorite fairy tale is clearly not easy for me. 

However, the moment I saw the base doll Missy had drawn, I knew I wanted to make her into a mermaid. Something about the dolls long lean shape just reminded me so much of  mermaids. So, I thought the Little Mermaid was a perfect fairy tale choice.

Meanwhile, go check out the other paper dolls and fairy tales from Paper Doll School and Miss. Missy’s Paper Dolls.


  1. Little mermaid is one of my favorite fairly tales. I did a few mermaid outfit sketches but nothing as good as yours. Love the hair
