My childhood recurring nightmare was being caught by mannequins and turned into one of them. They feed on each other, eating fingers and toes especially.

Well, I know I'll be shopping for clothes online only now. Mannequins are about as scary as puppets, which are right under clowns. *shudders*

Realistic shapes is great and all, but use healthy realistic shapes.

The tattoos are not a bad idea actually, let's people see how the clothes contrast against body art.

But saggy breasts and pubic hair?

"Mertel! Old Navy is having a special on shirts for saggy breasts, they just got in the knee-knocker size, put in your teeth and let's go!"

strangeluck: But saggy breasts and pubic hair?


Now that essentially zero women have pubic hair, they're making mannequins *unrealistic* by adding it.

"Mommy! Mommy! That strange lady has hair growing not on her head!!"

Never found mannequins creepy at all, even though I read some book when I was a teenager about mannequins that came alive and had their own gang wars in the mall. Wish I could remember the name of that book, I quite liked it.

A quick google search proves me right, author was Richard Peck. A fun read when I was about 13.

I was ok with it when they added perky nipples, but enough is enough.

We have the same ones here in some shops. I don't know that I've in gone in any of the shops that use that type, much less been convinced to buy something one of them was wearing.
