Frida Paper Doll

Here is my first real doll of 2010!!! A cut out and dress up Frida Kahlo De Rivera paper doll inspired by ADO's mini Monthly Challenge for July. It's been years since I made any paper dolls, so I thought I'd go for something that didn't require any paper engineering to start off.

The pics below show the card sheet with the basic doll, there are 2 further paper sheets (all A4) of outfits and accessories, including her amazing hairstyles and jewellery. We all know Frida loved her Mexican Indian outfits and sometimes also dressed as a man. I just need to finish up her "wardrobe" (very colourful, she comes with parrots too! Sneak preview tomorrow) and then she will be available to buy in the shop later this week. Hope you like her :o)

A question. Can anyone join in on these challenges? or is this a members only challenge?

Thanks everyone :o)

Janet: These challenges are set for ADO members but they are always listed ahead of time on the ADO blog (see links or click on one of the pics to the right) so there is nothing to stop you joining in, I'm sure if you sent a link to your blog they would gladly feature your finished dolls :o)
