Let them eat cake

Jan 12

I’ve added a free paper doll, which is something I’ve been working on for the past few days. It’s a doll of Marie Antoinette, the French queen who met a gruesome end. She comes with four elaborate dresses and five wigs. I was hoping to make the doll a little larger, but her dresses turned out to be so oversized that I ended up shrinking the whole thing. Her majesty was not known for minimalism, after all. It is absolutely not historically accurate, as I am fairly sure that Marie Antoinette was never seen wearing giant snowglobe.

And best of all, because it is free, you can guillotine off her little paper head without remorse. I don’t know why I am so mean to paper.

Earlier today I was browsing through CRAFT Magazine‘s blog, and I came upon some familiar faces. So I freaked out a little because I MADE THAT. That is my terrible project. Tremendous!
