Black and Blue Heavens Masquerade Gown with Jupiter-Inspired Underskirt and Gold Curls

Click for larger version; click for the list of dolls.

So, I hope you all out there are having good luck with your New Years resolutions, because I, oh, TOTALLY failed mine already. (“Draw more,” of course.) Yeah, sad, I know. I have no excuse, and I offer a fancy dress in penance.

I designed this one when drawing Diana’s masquerade gown, but I thought it would be a poor spy who would wear something so dramatic, so I drew the blue gown instead. But I did like the design, and so it didn’t get tossed with the rest of my sketches.

  1. oooo ~ well worth the wait! i love the bodice and the colors are wonderful ~ i can see a lot of admirers orbiting around her in this dress!

  2. Thank you so much, I got the set of 3 jointed dolls to play with, and I have some lovely pink and blue crepe papers to fashion some stylish dresses….off to find my glitter and glue!

  3. just a constructive critism, but I think that the panel that is red in the middle might have looked better in say white or deep purple or something that stands out a little less. however i do really like the dress.

  4. Long time lurker, first time commenting. Your art work is amazing and your talent supreme. I love paper dolls, heck I love dolls of all kinds and your site. I went and got a better printer so I could print out some of your dolls and dresses and admire them in my hands.

  5. Thanks everyone! :) I really appreciate all the comments!

    Annissa, love your new site — that 1700s gown you just put up is fabulous!
    Sarah, I really like that idea, I’ll give it some thought… Whenever I start thinking “series” I get to feeling guilty about my Christmas story though. Well, we’ll see.
    Jan, wow, that’s dedication :D I’m so glad you like them that much!

  7. also i understand its for dolls but if you know any way of getting the dress for a person that would be greatly appreciated

  8. This gown is so pretty
    it really portrays the space/Jupiter feeling
    i like the way you used the night time colours and pictures of the dress and then you used that swirly thing like rings of Jupiter? (sorry i don’t know how to describe really) It’s very unique; a unique and beautiful style

  9. That’s such a pretty dress! I think I may take that to a tailor. Although, he may “punch me in the face”…
