Paper Dolls

Playing with this reminds me of the only paper doll set I ever had. It was a doll drawn manga-style – but she had short blonde curls. Her clothes became dog-eared very quickly, because they were made from ordinary writing pad cardboard. I wonder why it never occurred to me to make more clothes for her. Guess I didn’t imagine hard enough about using other materials…

Anyway. I thought about paper dolls long enough to go and find out more. Quite interesting!

First stop: looked for fellow WordPressers. Found pretty vintage paper dolls from Come On Closer, and the Flickr pages with tons more…

 

Second stop: Mini Me paper doll boutique. Would make a wonderful gift for any little girl!

Third stop: kirakirahoshi. Like the couple-dolls! Used to collect couple-dolls from each country that I visited.

Ultimate stop: Singapore Paper Doll – and she’s named Lian!!!
