Emma Paperdoll: Costume 02

Been listening to an Emma audiobook as I work lately and have noticed things in the book that I never have before. Did you know that Emma's eyes are hazel in the book?! “Such an eye!—the true hazle eye—and so brilliant! regular features, open countenance, with a complexion! oh! what a bloom of full health,...

Emma Paperdoll: Costume 01

First costume for my newly redesigned Emma paperdoll!

It's a very short scene, but, thankfully, there were a few good shots of the costume. ^^" The bottom of the dress was never shown, so I improvised a bit.... Continue Reading →

Emma Paperdoll

Been working on a fun side project! I was watching Miramax's film adaptation of Emma (1996) the other day, and I fell in love with the costuming again. One of my  favorite costume from this adaptation is probably the pink archery gown. 🙂 But it's so hard to choose just one favorite because she has so many beautiful...
