Another Altered Dress Form

I had to make a trip out of town today (about 20 miles) to pick up some mannequins that I'm going to be putting together and selling. I stopped at one of my favorite antique stores called The Painted Lady (Canton, SD). I found this wonderful dress form really cheap. It was in 4 pieces. I wired her back together and put a coat of white paint on her. Then I paper mached clothes patterns, book pages and sheet music on her. I layered patterns on top of everything to give her a fun look. I plan to take her to the shop and sell her.
So as I mentioned I picked up mannequins and my van is full. They are all naked and in pieces, so if I open my van and anyone sees them they will get a good laugh.
Off to finally sit and relax for awhile!
