Takara Jenny Paper Doll

Hello everyone.  First day of school today.  Should be an easier semester because I don't have as many classes and one is online.  I did this paper doll a while ago and never posted it because I thought I might add more outfits.  This is a Takara Jenny doll I own called Calendar Girl Jenny November.  I may use this base again for other Jenny dolls.

Debbie Fashions

back of page

quick color in Photoshop for fun

This single page paper doll is from the Katy Keen comics and features her blonde friend Debby. The top of this old comic paper doll is a bit frayed, cutting off just the top of her hair.  She has seven stylish outfits.  I don't have a date for this.  On the back is a template of a dress that can be colored and designed by the readers.  I did my own quick color in Photoshop.

Figurine Paper Doll

My orignal idea for this doll was to use a bell figurine doll to 'ring in the new year' but I didn't find a bell figure that I liked enough as a base.  The doll base is a Josef Original by George Good, the August Birthday that I found on Pinterest.  I changed her outfit to be more plain.  The dresses aren't from any figurines in particular, rather inspired by the general style.  Some items are meant to layer over the yellow dress.  I also gave her a few hairstyles.  Her eyes look a little alien like.  I may do another project like this but actually use Josef figurines as reference for the outfits.

Lei Lani

This single page paper doll is from Children's Play Mate Magazine October 1942.  She is named Lei Lani and is drawn by the artist Fern Bisel Peat, who also did the cover art for the issue of the magazine. Lei Lani has one Hawaiian themed  outfit with headdress and shoes.This is the sort of doll, as a kid, I would make outfits for, which I may do later.  She's too cute!
