I could imagine a crazy science fiction story involving female mannequins coming to life. It would start in a shopping mall.

An old female mannequin with a hollow look in her eyes is lifeless and dull; she has no pizzazz, no character; you might as well drape your clothing on a hanger. A sexy mannequin can imitate a beautiful woman, with hair rumpled, breasts heaving, and small knees and elbows tied close together – some display [...]
One of the more challenging aspects of owning a clothing retail store is marketing your items to prospective customers. Every shopper usually has their own agenda, and the items you’re pushing may or may not be a part of that agenda.

There certainly is a lot of creative possibility in the world of display mannequins, both in the making of the mannequins [...]
For centuries, the fashion industry has relied on display mannequins of one kind or another so that their clients would not have to endure long fittings. Sometimes, a dress form was custom-made as a clients’ exact body double.
Those were some lucky ladies, as I see it. I’d pay a pretty penny (if I had one) [...]
Remember Mannequin, the 1987 movie starring Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall as a sexy mannequin who comes to life?
Who hasn’t had a fantasy of that happening at least once, brushing by a mannequin in a store, or passing by a dress shop display window? Perhaps, if there was no one around, you gave her [...]
