Paper Doll: Star Trek Classic (and News!)

April, the paper doll, and her other outfits can be found here. This is April’s very last outfit! I actually drew it about a year and a half ago, but we didn’t have a scanner at the time and then it got lost. Only the boots are new, since I decided it needed them after I found it and noticed I’d never drawn any. I think that it turned out well. It’s obviously based on the red uniforms worn by the women on the original Star Trek series, most notably Lieutenant Uhura. I actually liked the more tailored uniform worn by Nurse Chapel better, but I couldn’t find any really good reference images of it at the time, so I decided to go with the red uniform instead.

I’m going to start a new paper doll series on this blog next week. There will be three new dolls and outfits for them. These are a little different from Alice as they are currently simply black and white outline drawings and I have no plans right now to change that. I may experiment with coloring some of the outfits or even the dolls themselves in Printshop, but I haven’t decided yet. If I do, I’ll post any colored versions as well. If you want to color something from the series and send it to me, I will post your colored versions too. This is a new type of project for me, but I’m excited about and I’m hoping that it goes well! Look for the first doll and an outfit for her next week.
