It's a new year and time for a new feature on our blog. Our new Creature Feature will showcase some very talented Monster High artists from all over the world. Our first feature will be the clawsome Elizabeth from Printable Doll Clothes!
When I saw her site printabledollclothes.com I was blown away at her off the fang designs for our Ghouls at Monster High. I am sure you will agree that they are voltageous and show killer style.
Let's meet Elizabeth and learn all about our new freaky fab friend:
I’ve had a life long love of dolls, and I’ve been collecting them since I was about six. At first, I mostly collected Barbie. Recently though I’ve started collecting many other doll lines, some of which had few additional outfit options available. I wanted an inexpensive way, that was less time consuming than sewing, to make doll clothes for them.
Being able to print an outfit with regular printer paper that would fasten with tape seemed like a good way to achieve this goal. I started measuring various dolls and using scrap paper to see if paper dresses could work. After much trial and error I eventually came up with the template pieces I now make my outfits from. It was very exciting when my first printed outfit was finished and looked great!
Originally I designed my printable doll clothes to fit Barbie and Monster High dolls but after I had finalized the pieces I found that they also worked on a LOT more dolls than just those two. I’ve made outfits for Chelsea, Barbie’s little sister, and I’ve made an outfit for an 18” American Girl doll. Obviously, every doll can’t wear all of the combinations, but most dolls smaller than an American Girl doll can find something to wear using my pieces.
I love historical fashion so the designing process has been very fun. I like to design many different styles of dresses, from Jane Austen Regency to Palace of Versailles ball gowns to Steampunk to Fantasy Fairies to classic fifties dresses, as well as modern designs and much more. With multiple top, skirt, and sleeve combinations for each outfit there are a lot of possibilities. And each of my outfit sets comes with a black and white template that can be colored with crayons etc after printing for a really customized (and ink friendly) look.
I began designing my outfits in July of 2013. After months of development and photography I launched my Etsy store in November of 2013 so that other people can enjoy my outfits too. I've had a lot of fun designing my collection and I am excited to see what the future holds for Printable Doll Clothes.
Here is a couple freaky fab tutorials so you can see how simple it is to dress your ghouls in a whole new style! I am sure Venus would love this idea since you would be able to recycle them, and attention Mummies who need a lil Maul time- Elizabeth has black/white designs so you can keep the lil monsters busy coloring!
