I happened upon this photo of a mannequin by Pierre Imans so I searched and found a bunch on Pinterest. Click this word = Pinterest = to view the incredible mannequins! There's also an interesting docuvideo about mannequins, particularly Pierre Imans' influence and realistic forms:
A couple of years ago, I received an email from one of the Smoking Chimneys, asking if he could use a photo I took of a smoking boudoir doll I once owned. Of course, I said okay! Anyway, I thought I'd share this two years later.....
I got this composition/cloth boudoir doll today. She's in great shape! But, her outfit does not flatter her at all. I turned up the brim of her hat. That made such a difference. The hat still has the store tag in it (see photo, below). Click on the photo of the store tag, below, to view Wikipedia information about Joseph Horne Co. I tied up her crocheted collar, and then, after much consideration, I removed her skirt. It is lined and the material is heavy so it weighed her down quite a bit. It also was not sewn on her very nicely and has a bulky zipper.
She actually looks better without the skirt. I'll have to find an appropriate costume for her that matches her original hat.
