Collaboration 2019: 1940s Carhop

This month’s theme was food, so I took inspiration from this 1940s carhop girl. The short skirt is definitely more 50s-style, but I’m not going to get fussy about the details here. I had originally thought of doing something cheesy like Miss Chiquita, but better sense prevailed. I really should have drawn her a tray with some burger or something on it. Anyway, hope you still enjoy!

In grouchy news: I recently upgraded the blog because it pesters me literally every day with update this and update that. And now it’s fighting me tooth and nail. The new posting interface makes absolutely no sense and is a bear to work with. I feel like I am reminded every month why I no longer like blogging. : o p

That said, I’m still happy to be part of this collaborative!

Collaboration 2019: Awards Season!

February is Oscars month! Will your favorites win? I’m lazily rooting for Sam Elliot and Adam Driver but doubt either of them will get it. Oh well!

I chose two red carpet outfits for this plate, both inspired by formal wear worn to the Golden Globes this year. The first dress is Vera Wang gown and it was worn by Taraji P. Henson. The second is a Valentina gown worn by Gemma Chan. I loved the dark colors on both these original gowns, but one of the joys of the black and white plates is that you get to color them however you like!

As a side note, I know there’s some jiggy things going on with the way the site looks (recent updates wrecked the banner and I finally fixed it–so frustrating). I might end up overhauling the template entirely because this latest version is driving me crazy.

Collaboration 2019: Trends of the New Year

I can’t believe it’s been more than a year since I last updated this blog. Life gets busy, doesn’t it?

But thanks to the good folks of the paper doll community I am back to posting for the 2019 Collaborative! You can find all the other great participants at the following sites:

The theme for January was “Trends for 2019”. I wouldn’t know a trend if I sat on it. Fortunately Google is our mutual friend. So I picked something from Prada’s Resort collection, which you can see here. Yes, I cheated on the blouse. The designs aren’t that distinctive to my eye, but I loved the color, her hair, and makeup.

You can draw your own tabs, and attach her head by either gluing it so that the hair remains free, or you can attach it non-permanently in order to swap out future heads with different hairstyles.
