I've had the Mulligrubs song in my head for over a week now replacing the word Mulligrubs with Mannequin. It's terrible!
My addiction to mannequins is getting out of hand, but I'm LOVING it! haha
Here are my latest two editions! Oh I adore them. I come home and smile at them as if they're real people! How could you not? They're just so beautiful!
This is my 1960's/70's beauty. Her makeups gorgeous! After my daily mannequin searches and research, I've never actually come across a vintage plastic one.
I went to buy a mannequin from a new mannequin shop, and they mentioned they've just 'invented' plastic ones as they're light weight and indesctructable. So finding a vintage one is really weird! Her arms, legs, head and waist are all strung together on the inside, and are joined to the rest of the body by balls (similar to a barbie dolls joints) so she's completely movable! Really like a giant doll!
I do have her arms and hands, but my newly found mannequin restorer has to rescrew her joints as they're a little dodgy.
This is my new 1940's/50's girl. She's been a bit mistreated. She's missing a finger, and someone has sprayed her silver :(
So mannequin man's going to restore her, and give her a makeover to make her look how she originally did, pale skin, dark hair, red lips. Beautiful.
I can't wait. :)
And lastly.. not a mannequin but something I've been on the hunt for... though not my ideal ideal one, it's pretty darn cool!
An Original (You see the newbies everywhere) Fiber optic lamp on a spherical base that changes colour and turns! SO lovely to look at. Really relaxing actually! I've been caught just staring. haha.
I just uploaded another 20 items into the store! :) Check them out when you get a tick!
Happy Tuesday! Neighbours is back on! Bye bye silly season!
