USN Paper Dolls

I just made a whole slew of paper dolls based on the uniforms of the US Navy.  Don't ask me why, but I did and it was fun.  

I started out with this generic, cookie-cutter shape, and added in the uniform details using the line and shape drawing functions in PSE7.  This one is supposed to be the blue camo uniform, or the Navy Working Uniform, as it's technically called.  

I actually did all 5 uniforms, the first 2 being the Blues and Whites, respectively, followed by the Navy Service Uniform, the aforementioned NWUs, and a PT uniform:

And then I added a bit more detail and colored them in.

Super cute, right?  It's a little ridiculous how much fun I had with these.  And how many variations I made...I also have uniforms for officers and women.  :)

PS:  Does anyone else want gingerbread cookies now??
