For The Love Of Mannequins

We see them everywhere…  store windows,  flea markets, interiors, and used as art. They all have a purpose and somehow tell their own story.  There is something unique and charming about them.  I know they can’t talk, but yet they seem to speak.  Saying something about their past, what they’re trying to sell, or simply just being a statement piece.  Who are these “things” I am talking about?… 

Mannequins.

I have a love for them.

 Vintage mannequins are my favorite.

Yet, I am drawn to the creative types that make them into pieces of art.

Some sell their found mannequins, and others just can’t give them up.

Me being one of those people.

… and believe me, I had a buyer who would pay anything to have my mannequin.

I just couldn’t do it.

  I couldn’t sell her…

I was fond of Rebekah Blocher’s mannequin from the Country Living Fair 2011 and 2012.

Her mannequin was the inspiration for my mannequin.

Stay tuned…

for a tutorial of how I made her.

Here she is before…

(please ignore the workshop mess – yikes!)

    1. Thank you, Betsy! I have seen your mannequin in your photos from your blog. I LOVE it! I would love to have another just like yours. Hmmm… High Cotton? Lucky find! We may have to road trip there sometime soon. 🙂

  1. Oh, Angie, I just love her! (Better than the inspiration piece.)
    Last October, my daughter and I ran across a beautiful mannequin styled like a mermaid with a poufy skirt of blue and green chiffon, shells, pearls and drift wood. It looked amazing and ended up being the inspiration for my daughter’s Halloween costume. I enjoy seeing the creativity and beauty in the styling of these mannequins.
