Amelie Paper Doll Poster

i finished my Amelie Doll Poster and i love her! The movie is so stylish. Amelie’s style is a shortcut to her character so i really wanted to make some art inspired by the film. From her bobbed hair to the repeating colors of red, pink, brown, black, and spashes of green- everything harmonizes. I love her cute  fashion. Did you know she never wears pants in the movie? Or that she actually has 2 red/burgundy skirts? One has a lace panel at the bottom and one is plain. And her shoes are the same kind the director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet wears. Can you tell i’ve seen the movie a lot? Soooooo many times. But, honestly it never gets old. 


It was very difficult deciding which clothes, costumes, and props to depict. I had to leave out some of my favorites, like her pale pink polka-dotted shirt with the peplum. 


This poster/print is for sale over at my redbubble store. She is technically not meant to be cut out and played with, although if you do wish to, you could probably cut her out and glue her to card stock.

one of my favorite subplots involves Amelie’s father and his traveling gnome.


i love pop culture, movie, and literary paper dolls! i’m working on some more right now!

  1. How are there no comments on this? It's a great idea and the agony of choice of outfits is understandable! I love the idea of paper-dolling things even in this day and age. Your lines are really clean and that so lends to a finished-looking result. 🙂

  2. thank you for your kind words 🙂 the only way i was able to choose which outfits made it on the page was to choose some of my favorite scenes and go from there. i do wish i could have included her deep pink slip that she wears when reading Madeleine's letters. ps- i don't know why there are no comments :/
