New Paper Doll Outfit – Rapunzel

This is another princess from Faerie Tale Theatre. This time it’s the beautiful maiden in the tower, Rapunzel. This dress was originally a shade of brown that washed out many of the details, so I kind of like it better as a line drawing like this! I’m especially proud of the lace collar on this one. Usually I think my lace ends up looking messy, which is frustrating, since I like lace when it’s used to good effect. I have no idea why there were butterflies on this dress, but I kind of like the imagery. Rapunzel might have embroidered winged creatures on her gowns because she wanted to fly free of her tower prison like they could. Or they could have been there because the low-budget show was borrowing a dress from somewhere. Who knows? I really have no idea if the costumes for this show were made for it or found or borrowed, but I’m impressed with the costumer however they were acquired. They were usually pretty good.

Serena and all of her outfits can be found on her page, which is starting to look pretty good. She had such a pitifully small collection for a while that I felt bad for her, but it’s getting bigger. She’s got more fairy tale costumes coming up!
