Two More Greek Dresses from Liana’s Paper Doll Boutique

Click for the doll.

Today is our travel day, and the last day of Boutique posts, I should think. (Tomorrow is a repeat, too, but not from the Boutique…) So here I finish out the Greek section from the Historical category from the Boutique.

I’ve enjoyed my vacation very much, but I’m looking forwards to getting back to drawing every day again! I’ve got some holiday plans…

The poll ends tomorrow, so take it soon!

Two Greek Dresses from Liana’s Paper Doll Boutique

So we’re back at my mom and dad’s place now. I’m glad that I scheduled all those posts, because I was much more able to enjoy my time away from Internet access knowing that all those princess gowns were appearing day after day! Today, it sounds like there’s some shopping to do.

It’ll be a little time until I actually do more drawing, I think, so in the meantime here are two dresses from the Boutique, both Greek gowns from the Historical section of the page.

Poll’s quite interesting, I think…

Halloween Costume Series Day 8: Cleopatra White Linen Egyptian Dress with Blue Lotus Pattern, with Jeweled Collar and Red Sash

I kind of broke my “no research all month” rule for this one, but it is not hard for me to find an excuse to look at ancient Egyptian clothes. This one is vaguely accurate, although I think the lotus pattern may be over the top, there’s no melting perfume cone and the clothes should be sheer anyways, for full royal style. That’s even further than today’s ‘sexy Cleopatra’ revelers want to go… I used to want to be an Egyptologist, and I’ve even got a book or two on learning hieroglyphs in the other room. Then I discovered Japanese and kanji. No kidding.

If you’ve already taken my poll and answered “obscure costumes,” can you leave a comment and tell me what kinds of costumes you’re talking about? I’m very curious now, since that category’s done so well. I expected that sexy costumes would be low on the list for this crowd, but I wasn’t expecting that no one would choose ‘pop culture’ for a costume. What, no Jedis in this group? No Jokers? I thought everyone wanted to be the Joker this year…
