Aubrey is one of my comic strip characters from my comic, The Family Phreque, about a traveling sideshow circus that retires in a small midwestern town: hilarity ensues. Aubrey is, obviously, the bearded lady. I drew up the paper doll and colored it in photoshop. I printed up the page and then got a sheet of self-adhesive magnet from the local craft store and stuck it on. Then I cut it out with sharp scissors and an exacto knife without too much blood loss. I already had a swell metal lunchbox to sport her around on...but she also looks great on the fridge! I have a Dress me Up Buffy paper doll started too and will post pics shortly.

This is very cool...but I have a question, a dumb one....

Do any of the outfits actually stick to the doll??

Yup.  You can stick them right on top of her...and even put more than one thing on her (i.e.she usually wears her snake with the wig and the little leopard dress).

Well when you are doing the drawing..the key is tracing paper.  Draw up your figure...then use tracing paper to make outfits that fit over the top...

Very cool!  I bought some magnet sheets recently and have been planning to make some magnet dolls for my little girl.  I, too, had wondered how well the clothes would actually stay on.  Thanks for posting!!

That's great. I did this for a friend's daughters for Christmas. I used printable paper dolls from the internet. So cheap. I think it's great that you made some for you. I have the Mary Engelbreit paperdolls laminated and on my fridge, but their  outfits are stuck permanently to their bodies.

The clothes stay on better than the ones with the tabs. And they're more durable.
