What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Paper Dolls



Artist Asya turns models into paper dolls, dressing them in extravagant headdresses and wigs made entirely of white paper.

“Historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the baroque era. This is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics — no practical sense, but they are beautiful. In this case, paper helps to highlight the main form and not to be obsessed with unnecessary details.”

Some resembling the extreme hairstyles of the Baroque period, some closer to the fanciful headdresses seen in Art Deco fashion illustrations, and some pure imagination, Asya’s headdresses are marvels of design and engineering. And she doesn’t limit herself to head wear, either. She also makes incredibly delicate, complex gowns, capes, and other clothing items from paper.

You can follow Asya on her website and on Behance.

  1. Amazing! I’m bowled over by 2D paper cutting on a small scale. Human sized and 3D is just mind blowing in terms of the skill and engineering let alone the artistry.

  3. I’m always amazed by the artists you find who work in paper. These “wigs” are simply incredible. (And lighter than the originals…I wonder?)

    SO TRUE DEARS, PAPER IS NOT ONLY FOR SKETCHING OR DRAWING. (Don’t miss the translated video).
