Fashion Friday - Jessica

This may be my favorite Friday doll ever!

A little backstory... So I was born in 1980.  I'm ok admitting that :)  I remember some of the '80s, but not much.  I was a kid! I don't remember much before 1985!  I do, however, remember Jem and the Holograms.  The show was ok, but I loved the dolls.  I had almost the entire line.

Anyway, this doll is an homage to Jem and the '80s.  I wouldn't say it's specifically a Jem doll (thought that's kind of on my list of things to do...) but very much inspired by Jem.

And yes, I know Jem was Jerrica.  I chose the name Jessica because it was the most popular name in the US for girls during the entire decade.  It's also one of my cousin's names, so that helps.

Enjoy the doll and I'll have a good old fashioned, pencil to paper anatomy lesson on Monday.  Look for it!

  1. I like her is very Jem-ish! If i can remember...i will try to post my old jem clothes on my blog for you to see. They just always make me crack a smile....because their clothes were just so...outragious, truly truly truly outragious.

  2. Thanks :) I wanted a doll that was reminiscent of Jem but also embodied the '80s revival going on right now. As for a collection of Jem clothing, I found this site: There are over 900 outfits represented!! I could make dolls for years just based on this site!
