Today's paper doll is one I was on the fence about creating and then a lovely reader suggested it, so I went for it!

I came across a variety of angels in a broad cross-section of cultures. I wouldn't go so far as to say angels are universal, but they pop up in a lot of places. I discovered angels (probably more accurate to call them winged spirits) in Persian mythology and was inspired to create an outfit. The outfit is based on a recreation from the Safavid Empire. I decided to change up the colors a bit. I just couldn't get on board with the bright colors. The colors I chose were from a Safavid Empire era tilework that I liked.
Also, I want to make something clear: this is not a research project. I didn't delve deeply into any of the material I found. The scope of this project is to create a variety of interesting, beautiful outfits for an angel paper doll. I'd love to research more & dig deeper but that's another task entirely!
Tomorrow's outfit is totally different - make sure you come and check it out!
