Online “paper” dolls

I used to play around with dolls like this online all the time when I was about 12 – 14. I even made a few of my own, which are long gone by now. The thing I find significant about them, and relevant to my project, is the body shape used in the vast majority here. The one depicted in the example is very, very far from the only one of its kind. It’s easy to view it as “just a cartoon”- but I think that it’s really very telling of the unrealistic nature of modern beauty standards.
