So, a few weeks ago I made a list of themes I hadn’t drawn for the Dames and Dandies yet and I have been gradually inching my way through the list. Today’s paper doll is one of those themes- the ninja.

I have to admit I do basically no research for this ninja paper doll outfit. Everything I know about ninja I learned watching martial-arts films in college. Most of which were subtitled from Hong Kong and only half of which I actually completely could follow the plot.

I wasn’t as much of a fan of the genre was some dear friends were.

Anyway, the films heavily influenced my ideas of what ninja might wear, though (as mentioned) there’s no historical basis of this interpretation. I also watched a lot of Teenage Mutant  Ninja Turtles as  a child and this probably impacted me in strange ways.

  1. It is a nice set of clothing. I like how it is made of different layers of cloth, especially the leg covers.
    Sometimes maybe fantasy interpretations of clothing are something to be more certain of in movies. They are clearly fantasy. But it seems to be hard to make something absolutely historically correct, we have expectations and ideals of beauty that would make it seem strange and wrong. Like it isn’t that hard to know if a historical movie was made in 80ies or 60ies from the make-up of leading ladies.
