    Articulated Paper Dolls, ITSO Your Favorite Artist!


    Any artist counts, from Disney to Monet (and everyone in between). Create your own unique character In the Style of your favorite artist, or recreate your favorite piece of their art in paper doll form!




    Important stuff & thangs:
    •Flat(ish) Paper Dolls, 10-14" tall/about 25-35.5 cm
    (They can be a bit taller, but make sure they fold down to neatly fit in a 6x9ish mailer)
    •Dolls should move! Include at least 5 articulated points using brads.
    •Best work only*
    •Original work only
    •NO LOOSE GLITTER PLEASE!!! I love sparkles as much as the next fantasy fanatic, but please seal that sh*t. I have a 15 year old girl. I think we are STILL finding glitter from her Hannah Montana phase a decade ago.*

    •BE CREATIVE & HAVE FUN!!! Post fun pics to the thread! Play with those dolls!!*


    Mailing:
    Please PM me for my address when you're ready to send your dolls. I have not moved so if you have my address from 5 years ago, it's still good!

    ALL PLAYERS:*Send a large, clearly printed address label & the amount of postage it took you to mail to me (either well concealed or via PayPal). I will provide envelopes.





    Now, who wants to play?

    Be still, my ❤️! I’ve never made an articulated doll, but I love them so much. Sign me up. I’m sure I can make at least one.

    Can we choose more than one artist if we make more than one doll?

    Darn it, I need to try and find some time for this. Is it weird that I was thinking, "I wanna do a VanGogh with his ear falling off attached with some red thread....."

    I posted a pinkytoast inspired doll to my gallery this morning....and now I'm reading your instructions and she is almost 8" long. She's not big enough for the swap.

    Eh, I'm sure she'll work. I just set 10-12" as a guide so everyone realizes their dolls need to be bigger than an atc (but not too gigantic lol). If you feel like she's too much too short, you could always add some creative hair extensions or something.

    She's already wearing a gigantic hat on her big head. LOL I like her the way she is, I just didn't know if you would accept her in the swap not being 10". Of course, if you want to do a personal trade I'm always up for that! But, I want to make at least one more doll for the swap, too.
