I never gave much thought to paper dolls before, until I came across the work of Lisa Perrin in her Etsy shop, LeLapinTriste. Lisa specializes in such macabre subjects as Marie Antoinette (complete with detachable head), Lizzie Borden (ax in hand) and Sweeny Todd/Mrs. Lovett (a la blood stained cloths), among others... Fantastic illustrations, Lisa! I am feeling the need to start a collection.
Also, just so you know, if you have always wanted to be a paper doll yourself, just ask. Lisa can create custom orders!
