Download Paper Dolls / Kit Expansion Pack
Back in 2012 I was inspired by some sassy Downton Abbey paper dolls enough to try my hand at making my own. At the time Hope Solo had just done Dancing With the Stars so it seems obvious who I’d use as my muse. Kits? Costumes? What is not to love?
One thing led to another and it has progressed to this 2014 Seattle Reign version. This includes the new goalkeeper kit this year, supporters shield tshirt, gucci bag, Reign scarf, a jar of “hater’s tears” (quite full you will notice), and of course Twitter. Feel free to print this and try it out. Card stock works best I’ve found.
Included in the expansion pack are kit changes of the 2012 Olympic kit, 2011 World Cup kit, and 2012 Sounders Women kit.
Back in spring 2012 I saw some delightful Downton Abbey paper dolls. They were well done, a little sassy, and darn it – I’ve always loved paper dolls. I would have made an excellent 1930s tomboy with a secret paper doll stash. Anyway, as usual I looked at it and decided it was something I could pull off if only I had the right topic. Hope Solo just got done blowing up Dancing with the Stars so it was fresh on my mind. Why not do a tomboy’s version of paper dolls? The first version I did had more DWTS costumes in it. This is v2.0 which removed most of the DWTS costumes and instead has Hope’s short stint with the Sounders Women represented, a Hyperice addition, and more reading material. It’s more of an Olympic edition I guess. Once Seattle Reign settles on a kit I’ll try to update it with that or maybe add another sheet.

I really love drawing in miniature so the book covers were a blast to do as was the Starbucks cup. I’m kind of excited about doing new stuff in the future. With the hard bits done I’m not sure why I haven’t gone back to add more just for the heck of it. I’ll add it to my list.
