New Paper Doll Outfit: Queen Elizabeth I

This is one of the gowns worn by Queen Elizabeth I in the miniseries Elizabeth R. She wore it in a number of scenes as a gown for sort of everyday court business. Not fancy court presentations, but conducting business with her ministers and overseeing the day-to-day goings on at court. The gown was deep green with cream, gold and very few black accents. I think that perhaps the overdress folded back more in the center near the bottom, but there were almost no chances to get much of a glimpse of that part, so I kind of had to guess. This gown took forever to draw, but I’m quite pleased with the result. Sadly, some of the detail was lost or muddled by the scanner, but I still think that you can see it fairly well. This is easily the most elaborate costume I’ve done for any of this current series of paper dolls up to this point. It was fun to do, though, and reminded me that it might be fun to do more historical costumes than I have got for them so far.
