From their trendy accessories to sylin’ outfits, I know we all have fashion envy when it comes to the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. sisters.
With the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion Design Sketchbook, kids can create next-level looks for Lady Diva, Neonlicious, Royal Bee, and Swag. Each O.M.G. character has its own easy-to-get-to tab with full-body and close-up coloring pages.
The book itself is about the same size as a medium-sized agenda. The front and back covers are super sturdy, ensuring that there will be no bent pages — a personal pet peeve of mine — so they will easily survive trips inside bags and backpacks.
While kids will have to use their own art supplies like crayons, the sketchbook comes with one page of stencils; and two pages of scratch-off outfit and accessory stickers, and color palette inspo for all of their future designs. The first few pages feature step-by-step lessons from each O.M.G. sister on how to draw patterns for their runway-ready looks, so I learned how to make a Lady Diva’s beloved leopard print. Watch out, Tim Gunn, I’m coming for ya!
Kids can use the included stencils to trace the trendy outfits or use their imaginations to make their own looks. To make it easier, each characters’ tab begins with a cute magazine cover and a deep dive into her fashion choices, so kids can learn how to design each signature look.
To take some designing to the next level, the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G Make-Up Artist Magazine comes with crayons and makeup for kids to color with and help complete their styles. Yep, you read that right: eyeshadow, lip gloss, and blush are included to complete looks for the O.M.G. sisters to slay the runway.
This book is about the same size as the fashion sketchbook, but the whole set is a bit wider because it comes with the extra art supplies. Like the fashion sketchbook, the magazine features fashion tips from the characters, but now the focus is on hair, makeup, and trendy accessories. From curls to crimps and braids, kids can mix and match the crayons to color and highlight these hairstyles. Each character gets a few pages of close-up coloring pages, and a spot for kids to write what kind of style it is. I love the endless creativity here!
The magazine also comes with four pages of stencils and four pages of stickers filled with eye and lip looks and accessories. My personal favorite stickers are the hanging snake earrings that remind me of Reputation-era Taylor Swift. The magazine also includes nine eyeshadows in vibrant colors, four shimmery lip glosses, and light color of pink blush.
I was skeptical about coloring with makeup, but it turned out to be lots of fun and easy to apply onto the page. To get the most bold colors, use the included eyeshadow sponge, even if you’re using blush!
If one thing’s for sure, it’s that kids don’t have to leave their homes to slay the runway with the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion Design Sketchbook and Make-Up Artist Magazine.
