I feel a little bit like Michaelangelo, a little bit like Dr Frankenstein and probably a lot like Meryl Streep in "The Devil Wears Prada". I am building a body for my new doll and it's a lot to think about.
What do you think of her!
I wanted her to be strong but long and lean(so that she can be dressed of course). That is a bit of a trade off. She must be demure but capable of carrying off fun looks. And she needs to be able to be posed.
I am quite happy with her. I've gone with a vintage paper to keep with the nostalgia theme and sepia ink.
While you are here, enjoy a dose of the Good Ship Lollipop with this retro Shirley Temple Paper Doll. She was created by Loraine Morris in 1989 and featured in National Doll World December 1989.
Did you know Shirley's full name was Shirley Jane Temple and that in Depression ruined 1935 she was earning $4,000 USD per week?
She won a special oscar in 1935 that was made miniature just for her.
And she could sing and dance as well!
