I hope this is where to put this. She does sit around my house proudly. Anyway here she is! My mannequin. I really wish I had a "before" picture. She was dirty and cracked and ugly as all hell.

Anyway this is after a good cleaning in the bathtub, numerous coats of white paint and face detail. The hair i picked up from a toy store (reminds me of a cute Japanese cartoon, i love it!)

This is after I attacked her with much red paint. Notice the heart is on the wrong side. I am infact a doofus. It doesn't matter what colour my hair is I will always remain the blondest of blondes when it comes to common sense. I actually looked at it and went "here is my left hand...heart is on the left...paint it on the left" (duh jade that isn't HER left!) I realised only when she was totally complete.

The finished product. To get the arrow through i had to drill two enormous holes through her making sure my angles were just right. I then shoved it on through and attached the pointed tip. I thought my blood looked way too fake so I got out the hot glue gun and made her limbs look a little more "ripped" I guess you could say. And made all the rest of the blood on her stick up more. Also there is some glue hanging from the arrow tip (which you can't see unfortunately). I just painted all over this with red paint and got a stencil to paint on the "OUCH!" then gave her a top coat of gloss.

She is now at the entrance to my house wearing a pirate hat. I think she freaked out my landlord. YAY!

Ha!!!  That is seriously awesome!!!  And who cares if her heart is on the wrong side?  She looks really really amazing!!  The hot glue thing was a stroke of brilliance!

That's sweet. They sell mannequin hair at toy stores?! XD That's awesome! What's it actually for, the hair? Does it come on a doll or something?

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

The hair was just bought on its own. I think it's meant to be worn as part of a costume or something. It's made form squishy foam. I just fell in love with it for some reason and had to have it. I don't think I ever wore it myself but it finally found a home on the bust. Horray!

you could always pretend her heart is on the wrong side because an evil scientist built her wrong, first he forgot the heart and then he put it on the wrong side and because of this, when cupid went to shoot her with his arrow, he accidentally killed her, not realizing that her heart was on the left instead of the right!

This is really rad! I work in visual display and get to work with mannequins all day, I'd really love to do something like that to a few of them (I'd be fired for sure haha)

That is amahhzing! I'm sad to say that if I ever had something like that sitting around in my room, people would gape at me and wonder why I was so emo. -sigh-
