A secret fact about me a lot of people don’t know is how much I love classic 1970s punk. I’m talking classic stuff- The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Clash and Blondie (though their exact genre is a subject of debate). Anyway, this is the fact people rarely guess about me.

I suppose I just don’t seem like a punk rock fan.

Needless to say, I am. So, I knew I wanted to draw some punk paper doll clothing for the Dames and Dandies. One of the interesting things about Punk is that I really do believe it is a fashion movement that is tied to a place and time. 1970’s classic punk fashion is as unreproducible in the 21st century as 1890s fashion is.

Women in heavy eyeliner, torn clothing and bondage accessories just doesn’t carry the same punch as it did almost 50 years ago. 

So, I don’t think this set of punk paper doll clothing is really 1970s punk (or I would have put it in the historical category). Rather this is some contemporary clothing with a nod to those styles. The truth is that the clothing worn by Punks was startling at the time. Today, I don’t think it has the same impact, as mentioned above. 

The cropped biker jacket, torn tank and zipper skirt were all fun to draw. I really fell in love with both the skirt and the boots which you can see on my Punk Fashion Pinterst board.

My cousin Keri wore punk clothing and I remember I always admired her guts. I never had the guts to wear much that wasn’t mainstream. I thought of her a lot while I was drawing this set. 

So, am I the only punk music fan out there? Are there other folks who enjoy it as well? Let me know in the comments. 

P.S. I wrote this whole post while listening to Ramones songs. Just FYI.

Aisha Goes Cyberpunk, Because She Can

Can I level with you? I like you all, so I think I can level with you.

I drew two Aisha paper dolls when I created her. I figured one contemporary sorta neutral design and one fun cyberpunk design would be handy. I did not plan to post these two one a week from the other. I really didn’t.

But somehow between classes ending and homework (so much homework) and real work and travel, I kinda got way behind on my paper doll drawing habits. So, I have four B Pose paper doll outfits, a new A Pose doll (Maybe named Abigail? Still deciding) and two A Pose outfits all in process, but none of them are done yet.

Some will probably be done tomorrow, but they aren’t done tonight. I figured I could stay up for a few more hours trying to get them done and then posted. However, that tends to lead to mistakes and sleep deprivation.

So, I am sharing cyberpunk Aisha a little sooner than I had planned to. But no harm in that, I do love my cyberpunk. The white and pink strappy top was the first thing I drew for this outfit and then the rest of the design kinda followed. For the record, I think I wouldn’t mind living in a world where one could painstakingly match your hair to your outfit.

Also for the record, I am super lazy when it comes to dressing and if this was an option, I would probably never do it.

Today, I am pleased to share version 2 of Akiko whose rocking a Sweet Lolita dress and ringlet curls. For those of you not aware of the Japanese alternative street style known as Lolita, here’s a brief run down- It’s a alternative fashion style from Japan- think Gothic fashion or Punk fashion in the United States and the UK. According to Lolita the influences are Victorian children’s clothing. As someone whose seen a lot of Victorian children’s clothing, I don’t quite agree, but you can decide for yourself if you want by looking through my Lolita Fashion pinterest board.

One thing I adore about Lolita is that it is not just about the dresses. Rather, the idea is to put together a “coordinate” which is a perfectly coordinating outfit from the tights to the dress to the bonnet. This is not surprising given that this style came from the country that developed a system of colors and motifs for kimonos based on the seasons when they were to be worn. Talk about matchy-matchy.

Anyway, within Lolita, as within almost every alternative fashion scene on the planet, there’s an endless collection of sub-genres and variants. The three major genres are Sweet Lolita, Gothic Lolita and Classic Lolita. I love this post from F Yeah Lolita with example wardrobes in each genre.

For my first Dames and Dandies foray into Lolita (and not my last, never fear) I went with Sweet Lolita, though there is a Gothic Lolita variant on my Patreon page that I hope you will download and play with as well. I tried to capture the bell shaped skirt and I designed what is known as a JSK (Jumperskirt) which is a sleeveless dress designed to go over a blouse. I made 2 matching pairs of shoes and one purse.

So, I did my usually research hunt for reference photos when I started my latest Lolita fashion paper doll. My previous favorite fashion blog devoted to Lolita, F Yeah Lolita has not updated in a long time. So, I dusted off my librarian searching skills and found a few new ones that I really liked. Magical Girl Me, Lolita Fashion on Tumblr and Miss Carol Belle’s Lolita Fashion Sewing and Pattern Advice all appear to be currently active, if you’re looking for more information on Lolita styles. I also had fun reading through Lolita Tips. Reading through that led me to the amazing Loli Library where I think I could easily get lost for hours staring at pretty dresses.

So, let me know if you like this Sweet version or the Gothic version better in a comment. I’d love to know! And if there’s a great Lolita fashion blog I don’t know about, I’d like to know that too!

What to Wear to The End of The World

A set of post-apocalyptic clothing for the free printable paper dolls from paperthinpersonas.com

Printable Black & White PDF Printable Color PDF More Paper Dolls & Clothes
Originally, I was going to start the guys series with jeans, but after I thought about it, I decided the jeans were too boring. Realistic? Oh yeah, but… not exactly pulpy fantasy armor or an elegant fantasy gown.

So, I moved the jeans to Friday and instead decided to open up with these post-apocalyptic outfits. Plus a reader commented on my Facebook page about how excited she was for more post-apocalyptic clothing.

See? I do actually listen to people.

Anyway, I spent most of Christmas time with my parents in the Southwest. I also spent most of that trip working on paper dolls for this month like mad woman. So, the colors of this post-apocalyptic clothing really reflect the colors of the desert. The thing about the desert is that at first glance it just looks brown. When you really watch how the color changes when the light changes, you realize there’s a whole depth of ochre, hazy purple and soft mossy teal there. Suddenly, the desert doesn’t look brown anymore than a forest is just green. 

It is one of the things I love about the desert. 

It is also the same color scheme that I used for this Sprite’s paper doll set of apocalyptic clothing. I had planned on developing a new color scheme, but I rapidly realized that my “new” color scheme was almost identical to this older color scheme, so I decided to borrow it instead. 

Lazy? I prefer to think of it as time management. 

Design wise, I drew inspiration from this set of armor and this pair of pants. Both pieces come from my Post-Apocalyptic Fashion Pinterest board. I haven’t done it yet, but I think I really need to design something that used this amazing leather arm piece. I’m kinda in love with it. 

If you’re thinking “Man, I need more post-apocalyptic fashion paper dolls in my life” than I have a whole post-apocalyptic tag for you to enjoy. 

Either way, tell me what you think of today’s paper doll in a comment, if you have a chance. Always love to hear from you all.

I’ve been on a bit of a cyberpunk kick lately, so today’s paper doll clothing has a distinct cyberpunk thing going on. I collect cyberpunk clothing inspirations on my Pinterest cyberpunk/sci-fi fashion board. The only piece I remember influencing today’s clothing is this t-shirt which was the basis for the gent’s shirt.

I’m sure there were other influences, because you can’t look a dozens of images and not be influenced. That’s how inspiration works, really.

Originally, today’s paper doll set had a red and black color scheme. I though that was a little dull. So, I borrowed the colors from my Space Pirates Sprites set and used them instead. The added advantage of this is that you can mix and match this set with the Space Pirates set perfectly.

And how doesn’t want to do that? I mean, everything is better with Space Pirates. (Space Pirates are slightly more entertaining than regular pirates.)

By the way, for my Patrons, there’s the original color scheme posted on the Patreon page. See it here.

Meanwhile, let me know what you think of today’s Sprite paper doll set in a comment. I always love to hear from you all.

The Mini-Maidens Get Some Bloomers & a Top Hat in Today’s Paper Doll Steampunk Coloring Page

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: This Steampunk Outfit
A printable paper doll steampunk coloring page from paperthinpersonas.com. The paper doll outfit can fit any one of the dozens of Mini-Maidens paper dolls

While I was never a big colorer as a kid, I do love creating black and white paper dolls, like today’s steampunk coloring page. I never liked coloring big expanses when I did color. So, the paper doll designs with more detail would be, I think, more fun to color.

(I maybe wrong of course. I don’t work in non-computer media much anymore. Someone who does should feel free to correct me in the comments about my coloring assumptions.)

So, I was very much feeling that I didn’t want to draw another steampunk fashion paper doll set when I saw this wonderful steampunk outfit on Pinterest and changed my mind. At first, I confess, it was the hair that got me, but I also adore the bodice.

So, I set to work on the paper doll’s bodice and the bloomers. Then I did the tights and invented some shoes. Striped stockings might be cliche, but I still really like them.

The hat was a last minute edition, because I thought the outfit needed something else. The set just didn’t feel complete without it.

Personally, the garters at the top of her stockings make me smile the most. I think they are just so fun! Though potentially impractical, because if you must lock on your garters that would just be a pain in the butt.

Still, as I have often said, paper dolls are not a place for practicality. If they did, I don’t know if I could draw them anymore. Half the fun is creating things I think look cool but would never wear.

So, love today’s paper doll steampunk coloring page? Hate it? Let me know in a comment! I always love to hear from you guys.

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: These Super Amazing Shoes That I Would Fall Over In

A cyberpunk African-American paper doll with a dress and shoes from paperthinpersonas.com. As part of the Marisole Monday & Friend's series there are hundreds of outfit she can wear.

Every paper doll has a beginning. Sometimes, the beginning is more complicated than other times. Today’s paper doll and cyberpunk dress came about because of the shoes.

A few months ago I saw these amazing shoes on Pinterest and I immediately thought, “Oh, my goodness. I want to draw those.”

And so, I did.

But a paper doll set needs more than one rocking pair of shoes, so I tried to image who/where one might wear a pair of strap covered platform shoes. Strap covered platform shoes immediately equate with cyberpunk in my head.

I mean, you sure as shooting aren’t going to wear them hiking.

So, the amazing shoes obviously needed a cyberpunk dress. I designed the dress to try to match the shoes. The narrow straps on the dress mirror the straps on the shoes. The two tone colors on the dress highlight the narrow strapping details. After all, if I am going to draw tiny narrow straps than I darn well want them to be obvious.

Then I realized that I had drawn a fair number of paper doll outfits in the latest batch of Marisole Monday & Friend’s content, but I did not have a lot of dolls. So, I needed hair for Monica. The hair would also need to be to toned, I decided.

Because if you can match your hair to your shoes, why wouldn’t you?

Janette in Space! The Paper Doll Frontier Apparently Involves Short Shorts

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Science-Fiction Television
A printable paper doll in black and white to color with a science fiction inspired outfit. Her outfit is a shirt with a harness, very short shorts and a pair of knee high boots with zipper detailing. She also has a ray-gun.
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.

Expressing My Love of Punk Music Through Paper Dolls, Like You Do

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations:1970s Punk Music, plus this picture, this picture and this picture
A black and white paper doll outfit coloring page. The outfit is inspired by 1970s punk and consists of a leather biker jacket, torn shirt and mini-skirt. The paper doll's wig is styled into a mohawk. The shoes are a leather knee high boots.
Here’s a fact most people don’t know about me. I love 1970s classic punk music.

It is not at all uncommon to hear me singing along loudly to the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash or Blondie while driving in my car. So, when July’s theme- Musical Genre rolled around, I knew from the get go that I was drawing a classic punk outfit for the Collaborative Paper Doll Project that myself, Boots, Miss. Missy and Julie have taken on.

Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t settle on punk at first. At first, I thought I would do jazz with a 1920s get up, or maybe country music (another love) with a banjo and a cowboy hat. But as I sat in my living room listening to the Ramones, I realized that I really should embrace one of my first and strongest musical loves. So, Punk it was.

(In case you are wondering, here’s a link to my favorite Ramones’ song.)

Once I settled on punk, I also knew I wasn’t going to do contempoary punk fashion or the punk fashion of my own adolsence. I wanted to draw a 1970s punk outfit.

That meant drawing what might be my first biker jacket, heavy duty boots and a mowhawk. I added buttons to the jacket and lots of spikes. The tiny mini-skirt and torn up shirt seemed to fit the aesthetic.

There’s lots of pictures of Punk attire on my Punk Fashion pinterest board, but this picture, this picture and this picture, all from the 1970s, inspired today’s punk look.

This month’s Paper Doll Collaboration theme was “Musical Styles” and obviously, I chose punk. Head over to Paper Doll School, Popculture Looking Land and Miss. Missy’s Paper Dolls to see what other folks are creating.

Some Post-Apocalyptic Paper Doll Fashions for the Sprites

Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations: Mad Max: Fury Road and Post-Apocalyptic Fashions from my Pinterest Board

A set of post-apocalyptic fashions for paper doll inspired by all things end of the world. Designed to fit the Sprites paper doll series from paperthinpersonas.com.

A set of summer paper doll clothing for boy and girl paper dolls in color or black and white from paperthinpersonas.com. Jeans, t-shirt, shorts and a tank top are all included.

Some of you may recall that I posted a pair of post apocalyptic Sprites a few weeks ago- Willow and Shirou. Around the same time I drew them, which was around the same time I rewatched Mad Max: Fury Road, I ended up drawing this set of clothing as well. I decided to wait a little while to post it, because really, how much post-apocalyptic fashion is too much?

There may not be a good answer to that question, I confess.

While I do enjoy the post apocalyptic stuff, I find the color schemes are often intensely limited. Things tend to be army green, camo colors and khaki. For this set, I really wanted to embrace the colors of the desert, so I chose a light teal, purple-brown and a oxblood red. The teal reminded me of succulents and the purple-brown of rocks.

Along wit Mad Max: Fury Road, which inspired a round of sketching for post-apocalyptic paper doll attire, I also used my own Post-Apocalyptic pinterest board for inspiration.

While I have doubts about the practicality of most of this clothing, I think we all can agree that practicality is never the hallmark of  my paper doll creations.

As always, let me know what  you think in a comment and have a great day!
