Mannequins are an integral part of store displays. Aside from helping shoppers visualize how certain clothes would look like when worn, they also add visual interest to product displays. Unfortunately, with their perfectly proportioned bodies and picture-perfect poses, most of them do set some unrealistic beauty standards too. However, there are also a few ones that defy the norm by being their quirky selves. Case in point, these funny mannequins prove that life as a “fashion figure” is not always as fantastic and glamorous as it seems.
To be fair, it’s a tough life that these creatures are living. Imagine staying in one spot while holding a pose all day long—they definitely deserve a break! Apparently, some of them had finally grown tired of putting their best foot forward that they decided to show a bit of their “personality.” From defying unrealistic beauty standards to being expressive of their feelings, these mannequins prove that they’re more than just inanimate creatures.
