Happy Independence Day!

Aaaannndddd belated Comic Anniversary and Strip #100. An welcome to the Year 2 Special Content theme: Paper Dolls! Okay, so it's only 1 doll and 2 outfits, so far, but this will grow over this year. The way I saw it, when the idea came to me earlier this year (yes, I've been planning it for a bit, time just got away from me) is the first anniversary is the paper anniversary and since this comic is run by a clotheshorse of a girl with more than a minor penchant for accessorizing, I thought paper dolls would be a fun thing for the holidays throughout the year and just whenever I get inspired to put together another doll or outfit. (the following links are for PDFs of the different pages composited above and will open in a new window; to save simply right click (control-click for Macs) and 'Save Link As' to your computer) Originally, the doll base [color, b&w] was going to a special download on May 1st but with wrapping up Script Frenzy I just couldn't get it together in time. Then I was going to release the base along with the Safari outfit [color, b&w] at Strip #100 but June was so crazy that, you guessed it, it didn't happen. It would have been a much more mundane outfit but I just fell in love with the Safari Scraps art that I knew it had to be the first outfit, and it was right there on Comic #99 so why not? Now, with June out of the way, deadlines all satisfied, I finally had a chance to finish up the drawings and get those two sheets plus the July 4th outfit [color, b&w] ready. Now we're all caught up! I really hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them. Even if you don't print them and actually play with them, it's okay, but there is something very child-like and simple about paper dolls and we could all use a bit of simple fun from time to time.

  1. This is awesome!

  2. What a great idea!! I love paper dolls and am always on the lookout for something new and different. Holiday pds would be cool especially if you surf around for some of the out-of-the-ordinary holidays like Diwali and Beltane and such. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
