Thoughts on Today’s Paper Doll
Opal is my only Asian Jewels and Gemstones paper doll at the moment. I have another one drawn, but she’s not ready for prime time yet. It’s a hard balance because while I enjoy drawing clothing so much more than I enjoy drawing dolls, I also can’t deny the fact that I want lots of diversity in my dolls. However, there’s no point to that if I don’t have any clothing to dress them up in.
The whole point of paper dolls, after all, is to dress them up in clothing.
Inspiration for Today’s Paper Doll
I really wanted do a variety of shoes. Unlike some of the other paper dolls, the first version of Opal’s shoes aren’t very versatile, so I felt like I needed to get a lot of variety in here. That’s why there’s a pair of sandals, a pair of tennis shoes and a pair of strappy formal shoes.

On the Blog: More Jewels & Gemstones Paper Dolls & my other version of Opal from January.
Around the Internet: Honestly, I’m not sure what to put here. I do keep a Hair Pinterest Board that’s kinda fun (and super random).
So, my favorite of these shoes are the colorful tennis shoes, even though I doubt they’re the most practical. I just like the purple.
As usual, I want to thank the folks who are on Patreon. Your support means the world to me.
Friday’s round up archives post might be superheros or might be 1960s. I’m not sure yet, but I am leaning towards superheros.
