After creating and sizing my Paper Dolls, I printed them life-size. I then cut them out to use to photograph my project. Since this photograph I have created a Marilyn Monroe Paper Doll as I feel she would be an obviously worthwhile addition to my project.
Whilst working on this project, the ‘message’ has been somewhat unclear. I feel that whilst creating the Dolls and thinking about the people who wear these outfits, I get the message that these people stand out, they are unique, they dress how they want to dress, and be who they want to be (or as much as they can whilst in the media spotlight) I added Marilyn Monroe because of her unique style and for the way she would be considered ‘plus size’ in today’s society but she was carefree and she embraced her shape and looked beautiful whilst doing it.
From left to right: Lady Gaga Telephone Costume, Katy Perry California Gurls Costume, Lady Gaga puffball dress and wig, and Beyonce Tour Costume.
I am unsure wether to replace one of the Lady Gaga costumes for the Marilyn Monroe costume, as the other women only feature once.
