Dress 91

3 Nov

Trying to format a book but since thee’s a cat on me, it’s difficult, so I thought I’d stop and post this while I waited for her to get bored and leave.

It’s the last of the jammies – with smexy Thane! (You can get him here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

I mentioned that I was looking at other paper dolls the other day, and  noticed one of the big differences between mine and other people’s are the black outlines. Most other dolls seem to have colored lines. I’ve been toying with making a doll with the colored lines vs the black ones – and also taking stock of who has how many clothes and putting some of the more prolific outfitters on hold for awhile. What do you think? Anyone? And if I DID a new doll, what should her name be? Candy?

Anyway, the cat is still here but she;s settled lower so maybe I can get back to work.

Happy paperdolling!

I have a book cover to work on but I may do it tomorrow and get some writing done. I’m redoing chapter one. Bah.

Today’s “dress” is for Thane  (You can get him here). Of course it’s not really a *dress* – Thane would object to that.

I realized Jo has a BUNCH of fancy dresses (including one coming in the next post) but he has nothing to wear to a party, so here it is. Luckily men’s wear is not as creative as women’s, so he can wear this tux several times and no one will notice.

Off to either do a book cover or writing or both. Happy paper dolling!

Today’s “dress” is for Thane  (You can get him here). Of course it’s not really a *dress* – Thane would object to that. It is, however, a set of jammies.

I probably should have just drawn the stripes in by hand instead of trying to be clever and use a texture, but I can’t help but always try to cut corners. Someday I might learn. In the meantime, it looks alright. And I gave him a coffee cup because what else does someone who is still in their jammies need but coffee?

And to anyone who actually reads the posts: Four days until the new dolls’ unveiling (Juli already guessed who it is).

Happy Paper Dolling!

As this post signifies, I made it home in one piece. Had a good time and wish we’d had a few more days. But then I am greedy.

This is actually made to match dress 70 I posted for Jo. There’s not really a question of Thane jogging – swimming sure, but jogging…I doubt it.  I did give him a cool new pair of sunglasses.

While we’re on accessories, what do you think about paper doll accessories? Like waterbottles, and laptops, and books, and things like that? Objects that don’t actually attach to them. I always loved them when I was a kid because it gave me items to add into the games, but I don’t know if other people like them or find them to be a waste of time. I ask because I’ve thought about adding items a few times, and then have backed off. So, question time: Do you like paper doll items with your outfits, or do you just like the clothes?

I’m early today because I have a party to go to tonight. It’s kind of a labor day party, I guess, but more of an annual autumn party. I dunno. Anyway, it should be fun.

I thought the jacket came out pretty good, anyway, and the shoes. I love shoes in person, but I hate drawing them.

Happy paper dolling!

Missed yesterday. Kept meaning to make the time but there was a lot to do, most of which involved helping my brother with his ancient piece of truck. It *still* won’t start, so hubby is going to mess with it Saturday. not that he is a mechanic by any means, but he’s more mechanical than we are. We put the starter back on and got new battery terminals and managed to go from the “zuhp-zuhp” sound to a “whirrrr-whirrr-vhiiiir” sound. Which means nothing to me. Either way, it still isn’t starting.

I was supposed to be done with this by five, but as you can see I am running a snit bit late. *sigh*

If you use the sunglasses from “dress” 10, he can go hang out with Jo’s red mini outfit from the other day. It’s nice to see them in a pair of outfits that could actually work together. He needs a tux, and I guess if no one pins one soon i may go hunting one up.

Oh, the jeans are the texture from D. Sharon Pruit again. I’d find the link but as I said, I’m late; I have book covers to do, lunch to make, two bathrooms to organize, cookies to bake and God knows what else.

Have a good one, all!

Missed a couple days *sigh* but got a lot done. A few more loads from the brother’s house to the storage unit and we’re be done. Yay!

Dad went home this morning. it was nice to see him. maybe next year or the year after we can move up to Iowa and see him more regularly. That would be nice.

Lots of yadday-yadda-yacking i could do but think I’ll skip it except to say there’s been a rash of car break ins around here – or at least *our* cars, anyway. The neighbor said his car got broke into buuuuuuutttt being the paranoid person I am, did it really, or did he make that up to cover the fact that he or one of his friends broke into ours? It’s a group of 17-20 year olds who are in and out; there’s always a crowd and god knows what they’re doing. I try not to be an age-ist old fogey and assume all kids are doing drugs and running wild, but I think this group actually IS, so….

Anyway,  today’s “dress” is for Thane  (You can get him here). It’s the last one so unless we get some scanning going on it may be awhile before I come back.

Here’s the pin.

Lots of fun texture again. The jeans are the texture from D. Sharon Pruit again. I’d find the link but I have to take a set of washer/dryers to the B.A.M.A. store and then get to work.

Have a good one, all!
