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.

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.

This box set of paper dolls includes 3 Barbie characters with magnetic outfits.  The outfits each have magnetic squares attached to the back of the clothing. The clothing punches out and does not need to be cut.  The dolls are pre-cut thick cardboard.  The outfits have a glitter foil on the details.  This product was made by Tara Toy Corp with licensing from Mattel and is ©2011.  I did not scan the stands because they are white and did not show up very well.  The dolls cannot share outfits, which was disappointing design.  There are 4 pages of clothing, 1 for each doll and an extra with lots of purses.
