True Blood Paper Dolls ll
The More the Merrier
Everyone’s favorite True Blood cartoonist, Andy Swist, is back with some new paper dolls to add to your ever-growing collection. My favorite set so far has to be the Sam Merlotte one, but then the male paper dolls always seem to turn out best (Swist’s ladies end up looking a little drag queen-ish). When did making paper dolls based on TV shows get so popular? Not that I’m complaining or anything….because I adore them… but seriously, is this the new, hip, Indie thing to do? Will I be able to download Entourage paper dolls and make them go on dates with the dolls from America’s Next Top Model. Not that I’m in the process of making Entourage or America’s Next Top Model paper dolls…that would be weird (and awesome!).
Are Twilight paper dolls hiding somewhere out there in the ether? Yes, apparently they are , although admittedly they weren’t made with quite the same tongue-in-cheek humor or mass-production potential as cartoonists Andy Swist or Dyna Moe. But I still kinda love them. They’re creepy and make me giggle a little bit. Who doesn’t want to play with “Protective Edward with fragile Bella”?! Or as those of us who aren’t completely brainwashed by the majesty of Stephenie Meyer’s tome to teenage celibacy, call them, “Obsessive Edward with dangerously co-dependant Bella”.
Are we lovers of pop culture reverting back to a simpler time? A time before video games, direct TV, iPhones and facebook, when all it took to entertain us was a little card stock and some imagination? If I could manage to unglue the direct TV remote from my hand, unplug my Mac and throw away my phone long enough to pick up a pair of scissors outside of school, I’d be able to answer that.
