Thoughts on Today’s Paper Doll
I am really bad at coming up with names for these paper doll outfits. I really had no idea what to call this one. I think sometimes I shouldn’t name them at all, but I missed giving them names when I was not naming things. Now I am naming things and that’s giving me fits.

What’s the old saying? The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Anyway, I digress.

I suppose I could have called this- Vaguely Medieval Fantasy Creation, but that doesn’t really roll off the tongue, does it?

Inspiration for Today’s Paper Doll
I wanted to draw a medieval feeling gown without having to be historically accurate in anyway. So, I created this.

Specific Source Images: This surcoat from Pearson’s Renaissance Shoppe and this photograph of some character from the show Merlin. (Confession, I watched one season of Merlin and was not a big fan.)

If you are a patron hop over to Patreon where there is a second pink and green color scheme for today’s paper doll dress. It was super fun to color. If you’re not a patron, consider joining.

I’m traveling a bit this week (last trip for a few weeks, thank goodness!) So, I maybe a little slow on responding to comments/approving them. I need to get my spam filtering stuff set back up. That’s a goal for May.

  1. This is lovely! I especially love how all the different blues go together and how they are more muted blues (if you haven’t guessed already I LOVE muted colors haha)
    Oh i’m with you on naming things! I used to never name my art but then I would suddenly have this great name for a piece so i’m like i’m going to name my art from now on and then I make the next piece and I can’t think of a single thing xD
    However I think you did a great job naming it!

    1. For a while I didn’t name things (and I kinda liked it), but then I needed to refer to them later and I didn’t know what to call them. So, I went back to naming things.

  2. What an interesting costume. It looks like
    a contemporary take on the “castle era”.
    I am looking forward to coloring this!!
    Love your work.
