Second Annual Star Trek Paper Doll - Deanna Troi Paper Doll edition

It's my birthday this weekend and I'm celebrating this week by sharing some sci-fi paper dolls.  Last year, I made a Star Trek paper doll.  After making that doll, I was inspired by the ladies at Fashion It So to create a Deanna Troi paper doll.  They have a hilarious blog about the costumes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and I highly recommend checking it out.

I was a kid in the '80s when ST:TNG was on the air.  I watched it with my parents while my sister grumbled somewhere about how terrible it was.  I loved everything about it!  And how could a nerdy '80s girl NOT love Deanna Troi?!  She had big hair, bright, tight clothing and dated Riker!

So this doll is for me and all the other people out there who love Star Trek, Deanna Troi, and paper dolls.  There's probably what, like 3 of us?! I'm hoping to cut it out soon myself.  I cut out last year's edition and loved dressing my Star Trek ladies.

Here's a preview of the whole doll. The outfits are more or less in order of appearance. I placed all of the uniforms in the first few pages in the order they appeared, and then all other costumes after that. These are the outfits from the tv series. I may include an extra couple of pages to include the movie costumes at some point. Did you love the Victorian costume from Time's Arrow? It's here. How about the Romulan undercover uniform? That's here, too. And not one but two workout outfits!



This literally took me a year to finish!  I worked on it in between other projects as a little labor of love.  I think it's complete and I couldn't have done this without the fantastic screen caps at Trekcore.

I hope everyone has fun with this one. I know I will!

(PS: no lesson on Monday.  I don't plan on doing anything this weekend except eat copious amounts of cake and hang out with my family!)

  4. I found some other Star Trek paper dolls on the Web, Spock, Trip Tucker and T'Pol, and also Henry VIII with his six wives, type 'Star Trek Paper Dolls' and 'Enterprise Paper Dolls', and you'll find all this!!! One can play crossover and time travel stories with this!

    1. There are some truly amazing paper dolls out in the world. Every time I think I've come up with an original idea, someone has already tackled it! And I'm ok with that. I love the idea of truly creative play -- I've created some historic themed paper dolls over the years that would work beautifully.
