They were mannequins, but I thought of them as BIG DOLLS. I got to play around dressing and styling them so. The purpose was for the mannequins to be used in a clothing store my husband and I were going to open. It never happened, but boy did I have fun with my dolls. I miss them. Sold them all on ebay now.
I will be adding more to this list as I collect the photos.
Weeks before any of the mannequins arrived I had a fun trip shopping for new outfits for them because we ordered the mannequins before ordering our clothing stock. The cute little outfits (not in my size, grrll!) ranged from size 2-8. I purchased some cheap shoes from second hand shops for the mannequins as well. All accessories are from my own jewellery box, I'm so kind.
I had a few wigs ready for their bald peanut heads as well.
This BIG DOLL is Nicole, the very first one purchased. When the Parcel Force dude rang my bell I couldn't believe the size of box he was delivering. It was very small for this long limbed lady. My husband and I took about an hour carefully opening the box, unwrapping her and putting her together, right there in the foyer of the house. We were twisting her legs, snap-turning arms, steadying her hips, checking her for cracks or marks, and when she was finally done the first thing I thought:
She has to get OUT of my house!!
