Sonja Henie 1941

I only have 1 doll to this set from Merrill 1941. I may have posted this set but it did not show up in my searches.  I am busy scanning in some things and may not post for a while. Also, my work schedule is unsure and will affect how often I post.

As promised, here is my Queen theme paper doll that I designed for the latest issue of Paper Doll Studio.  I decided to do fantasy queen characters.  The queens are (in order left from right, first page to second) Queen of Hearts, Ice Queen (or Snow Queen), elf queen, candy princess, spider queen, Queen of the Moon, fairy queen, mermaid queen, pirate queen, demon/vampire queen, Egyptian queen, warrior queen, Queen of emeralds, Princess Rose (my character) and Queen of Mars.  I tried to color this set in markers but I did not like how the colors turned out so I rushed to color it in Photoshop.

Boston Harold Paper doll outfits

Five more dresses from the Boston Harold (not Herold...?) newspaper.  Three are from June, one from July and I'm not sure about the other... 1895 is the year I believe. I should do some research to date these more accurately. No hats or accessories.
