Dede Denton

DeDe Denton is a 18 inch fashion doll from Tonner.  This 2 page paper doll was drawn by Robert Tonner and is dated 2016 and was featured in Haute Doll magazine. All of the outfits featured are actual doll outfits, including her swimsuit.  The outfits are called "Dede Denton Making a Splash" (swimsuit) "Drinks before Dinner" (black outfit), "DeDe Celebrates" (long nude dress) and "Manhattan Blush" (my favorite the pink one!) These outfits were all sold with a doll, not individually.

Myrna Loy

A few of my Dressographs have been cut, like the one above, and the previous owner made copies of an uncut set and laid out the pieces on top so that you can see it's complete as well as read the description of the costumes.  This set is of Myrna Loy and features  3 outfits with 2 headpieces.  These costumes are from "The Animal Kingdom", "The Mask of Fu Machu" and "Thirteen Women"  I personally love the green dress that the base doll is wearing.  This is dated January 29, 1933.

Paper Doll Collaberation Project Occupations

For the month of May the theme was Occupations. of course I had to choose librarian, since I work at a library!  However, I always imagine librarians in cardigans with pencil skirts and scarfs, though none of my co-workers dress like that!  Also, a stylish and witty book bag, and fun decorative pins.  First time I've ever drawn glasses, I believe!  For the other costume I decided to go with nurse scrubs. I imagine them in the traditional blue/green color however would be easy to add some fun print or color.

2 tops, 1 pair of jeans, 1 shorts, and 1 bag

3 tops, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of shoes

3 tops, 1 skirt, 1 hat

1 skirt,1 dress, and 1 pair of shoes

This Barbie paper doll is from Tara Toy Corp ©2004 with licensing from Mattel.  It features a two piece doll that is put together for a total of 20 inches *bigger then my scanner*.  I expected the outfits to be made from magnetic paper but instead the set comes with magnetic squares that you must peel and place on the back of each outfit. The accessories come with pink clips. In total, there are 6 sheets of pre cut clothing and an extra cardboard shirt that is 'for display purposes only'.  There are also 9 sheets of stickers to decorate the outfits.  The doll and outfits come in a reusable pink plastic bag that zips up for storage.  The doll is thick and did not scan well.  Lots of mix and match options with this set, very cut outfits and clothing looks like photos.of an actual Barbie wardrobe. My favorite piece is the pink tank top with lollipops.
