I bought a fun vintage set up paper dolls and clothes for from an antique store for $10 and thought I could do something fun with them.

I thought about playing with your imagination and how children of that era used to dress-up their paper dolls. I found a boy and a girl doll I wanted to use.

Back in the day dressing up for children was about becoming an adult or just wearing regular clothes.

Now as adults we too still love dress-up. But we dress up as fantasy. I gave sweet Debbie a steampunk outfit.

And Tom got a commander uniform cosplay outfit from Star Trek the Next Generation.

We have so many more possibilities now. The sky is the limit of what we can pretend to be! I love that our current day dress-up isn't limited to the everyday.

I have lots more dolls to play with and maybe more modern dress-up to come!
