Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Fantasy Woodcutter Daughters

It seems to me that many fairy tales have wood cutters daughters involved in them. I’m not sure why, exactly, but there you go.

There’s also a fairy tale about how a bird, a mouse and a sausage are all sharing a house. It is perhaps the weirdest fairy tale I have ever read. I digress.

The point is that I tend to draw fantasy princesses, but not every princess starts out as a princess. There are plenty of cases where people start out as woodcutter’s daughters and then, though a series of strange events, start spitting up gems every time they speak.

Am I the only one to whom this sounds super painful? (This is another weird fairy tale called Diamonds and Toads.)

Anyway, I decided that this is a fairy tale maiden sort of outfit. The kind of outfit that probably never existed in the real world, but that’s never stopped my paper doll creations before.

If you’d like some more “fairy tale maiden” sorts of paper doll clothing for the Mini-Maidens, than I would recommend the Faye in the Woods collection. It’s fairly close in feel to this dress.

I’m super curious which of the paper dolls this week have been people’s favorites, so here’s a poll to help me find out. In case you missed them, Monday’s Janette was contemporary and Wednesday’s Janette was sic-fi.

Which Janette this week was your favorite?

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Science-Fiction Television

Once I decided I was going to devote the whole week to Janette, I knew I needed to draw three really different versions of her. The first set on Monday was Janette: Contemporary Edition and now I’ve got Janette: Science Fiction Edition, or as I have nicknamed her- Janette in Space!!!

(Yes, all three exclamation points are needed.)

I love sci-fi tv, especially if it isn’t too heavy. I think I’ve mentioned before that I am super enjoying watching Dark Matter on Netflix. I just finished Season One (No spoilers please) and I am going to dive into Season Two soon. I also binged Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency recently. I’m also watching Midnight, Texas which I can’t decide if I like or if I think is sorta dumb.

The Midnight, Texas books are pretty good, if you like Charlene Harris‘s brand of goofy absurdist paranormal fiction, which I always have. She also has a great blog that I read for her book recs.

Anyway, to get back to the paper doll, today’s Janette has a ray-gun, or regular gun, it’s really up to you. I like that some of the latest sci-fi shows are just showing normal guns in space, rather than focusing on laser guns. I think it makes the violence feel more authentic, in a good way. Disintegrating people makes it too easy to pretend that wasn’t a person who just got killed on television and softens the danger in a way I often dislike.

I have no idea if that last paragraph made a lick of sense to anyone whose not me, so let me know in a comment.

Meanwhile, I hope everyone enjoy’s today’s Janette Mini-Maiden paper doll and there will a third Janette posting Friday. If you like her style, but aren’t sure about her specifically, I have a bunch more sci-fi and cyberpunk paper dolls to choose from.

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Fashion Magazines and My Patrons

A few months ago, I asked my Patrons to vote on a name for a new Mini-Maiden paper doll. A lot happened and I just didn’t get around to finishing her until recently, but I am super excited to present Janette. There will be a Janette paper doll every day this week to get her off to a solid start as an addition to the Mini-Maiden family.

Janette can, of course, wear any of the already created Mini-Maiden clothing and share shoes with Faye, Greta, Hazel and Isadora.

(As it happens, I name the Mini-Maiden‘s in alphabetical order, because… I dunno. It seemed like a good idea at the time?)

The first of the three Janette’s that will be posting this week is a contemporary Janette. I thought it was a nice place to start.

She has a sundress based on designs from my fashion magazine obsession, as are her sandals.

I wanted to give her a short contemporary looking hair cut, as this it the “contemporary” Janette.

On Wednesday, Janette will go to Space!

As always, a big thank you to my Patrons for helping me pick out her name.

Well, what do you think of Janette? Let me know in a comment. I always love to hear from you all.
