Carmen Miranda by David Zurlin

This paper doll is a one-of-a-kind hand-drawn set made by David Zurlin as a raffle prize for the 1991 National Paper Doll Convention in Los Angeles, which I was lucky enough to win. (That doesn't mean it was free - I bought 30 tickets for it. But still lucky, since I wasn't the only one stuffing that box.)

The set is four sheets inside a maroon folder, with an elaborately decorated front glued on. The doll comes precut and attached by removable tape to the front cover. The red bustle costume is part of the doll and is not removable except by cutting it off, so the doll as-is would not be dressable in the other costumes. Fortunately through the magic of Photoshop, I can give you a dressable doll without cutting up mine!

Click on each picture to go to a 150 dpi image, then right-click on that image to save it to disk. The costume pages are 8 by 11 inches, but since Zurlin draws all the way to the edge of the paper, they will not fit in the printable height of a letter page. I find printing at 92% scale will work for most color printers. Or if you are going to cut them, you can use an image editor like Photoshop to move the hats down by about 3/4 inch, and print at full scale. Be sure to print the doll at the same scale that you print the costumes.
