In our latest issue of Enfants Terribles Magazine, The Snow Queen issue, illustrator Christen Noelle made us these lovely paperdolls, for our illustrated editorial of Editors Choice.
Céline and I picked out the outfits for Gerda and Kay, the two main characters of Hans Christian Andersen's wonderful fairytale. Maybe you can spot some of your favorite brands. In the magazine version featuring the dolls you'll be able to click your way through to the styles.
If you'd like your own paperdolls Christen kindly made them available for download via her own Ella and I spent a few hours cutting and playing with the last weekend and she adores them, especially since she bonded a lot with the boy with whom we shot the Kay & Gerda editorial with for the magazine. I think she pretends that the dolls are him and her...
To be quite honest it took me a longer to cut them all out then I expected, but I think they're definetely worth the effort. They could even make for a brilliant gift for a little girl if you print them on a nice thick paper and put them in a little cellofan bag.
And we have a little extra something for you if you decide to launch yourself into the Paperdoll magic. Christen Noelle has made this special Lucia outfit that fits the Gerda doll from the Snow Queen issue, Click on the Lucia doll to go to Christen's website where you can download all the dolls for FREE.
Ella is wearing her favorite Christmas dress from Milk and Bicuits.
