Fanny’s Fashion Journey

I made this toy book for an art exhibit in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Each 2-page spread is dedicated to a decade, beginning with the 1920s and ending with the 1970s. A cat head moves from costume to costume.

Holiday_on_icehoi2_753615hoi_skater_418567I researched Holiday on Ice skating costumes from the 1950s and 1960s for this paper doll set. It was designed to be a large poster— like a Holiday on Ice poster— but I have subsequently reprinted it as a 2-page set.

Harold of Leatheroaks

Yellow leathers.leatheroaks_3cblue and gray leathersleatheroaks_2aleatheroaks_2cleather gladiatorHarold of LeatheroaksThis set is based on the wardrobe of my friend, Harold. He travels almost exclusively by motorcycle and wears leathers every day. The ensembles I have rendered for this paper doll set are but a fraction of what he owns. He is notable for always coordinating his boots with his riding attire and for sewing many of the items himself.

Gator Gal was done at the time my children were at an elementary school, whose mascot was an alligator. I gave these paper dolls to their teachers. The original Gator Gal set was created with water color and gouache paints. I later added the Christmas Cheer outfit, drawn in Adobe Illustrator.
