OK, this time I’m just resorting to the rainbows as an apology! I’m sorry for having such a sparse February. Hopefully March will be a little better… I hope you like this gown, I’m afraid it looked better in my head, so I was a little down about it, but as Brian says, “they can’t see into your head, so it’s OK!” For which we are all very grateful, I am sure.

By the way, in 2009 I watched the red carpet for that year’s Oscars and drew three of the gowns – “livedolling,” I called it. I didn’t do it last year, but I’m going to do it this year! (It’ll be especially nice now that I have a scanner that doesn’t scan everything with those bands…) So join me on the evening of the 27th for all the great gowns. If any of you other paperdoll bloggers want to join me, too, that’d be a lot of fun!

  1. It’s so pretty! I loved the first rainbow dress you posted, and loved the second one more than that, but I love this one even more than the second!
    Also, you inspired me to make a paperdoll for my NaNoWriMo novel in November. ( http://alicorne137.deviantart.com/#/d399zt0 ) Took me forever to finish all of the outfits. I can’t imagine keeping up with something like this on a regular basis. You’re awesome!

  2. Your dresses are always wonderful! I wish I could draw like you! You give me inspiration! And for me it doesn´t matter if it takes a while between the postings, because I belive, and have experinced in my own drawings, that it is much more fun and giving to draw when I feel for it, not because I must draw. (Hope you get my meaning!)
    Anyway, I really like your rainbow-collection!

  3. so glad to see you are back :) Again another beautiful rainbow dress!

    Can’t wait for your Oscar dresses, I loved the ones you did before. How many dresses do you think you will do this year?

  4. Ooooh my, but it is a pretty one :D The whimsical/historical-ish style of the dress itself is also really nice!

    Huhhhh… live dress-watching/drawing does sound fun. I haven’t got a TV though. Well, I’ll definitely watch for your drawings, whether or not I try drawing my own!

  5. O.O Am I seeing correctly *rubs eyes* Still don’t think I’m seeing correctly *pinches arm* HOLY COW!!!! I WAS SEEING CORRECTLY *falls of chair while shouting the last sentance out loud* They are all so pretty… I want your drawing skills…

  6. Loved the drama of the black with rainbow but this has such a delicate touch – even better! Agree with someone else, it has a fairy feel to it. Lovely

  7. What a lovely, floaty, delicate dress! So different an interpretation of the “rainbow dress” idea–each so special yet each different! Thank you! I agree with all the compliments above!
    PS–Brian’s remark is so funny and so true!

  8. Sweet! Thank you Liana, it’s beautiful =)

    It would be a perfect dress for the goddess Iris.

    And while I won’t be watching the Oscars, I will be waiting for your paperdolls =D

  9. I shan’t be watching the Oscars because I’ll be on my honeymoon! I look forward to seeing what you post while I’m away though :D

  10. We missed you, Liana! And the rainbow tribute…we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It’s very spring-y, a refreshing change from the dull turtlenecks I’ve gotten used to.
    But maybe I’ll watch the Oscars for the first time just to see the dresses and your posts!

  11. Thanks everyone! I was thinking about Iris about halfway through, too – I almost made a little headdress with rainbow ribbons and irises, but then it was late and I was tired ^^;;

    I don’t have a TV either – what I’ve done in the past is just keep refreshing the Oscars pictures on gettyimages. It’s not the most elegant solution, and if anyone has a better one, I’d be glad to hear it!

  12. That is such a beautiful dress!
    I stumbled across this blog one day in class, my friend and I then spent the next hour reading it :P
    I love your dresses, they are gorgeous, and really clever too, the ones that you tie in with books (like the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy one)
