Mannequin Make Over

4 Hours
Holiday bazaar display transformation from a retired Victoria's Secret mannequin into a stunning Christmas display piece.
It all began with a retired mannequin.
This is how the mannequin looked when I first purchased her from Second Use in Seattle.
The transformation begins . . . .
Here she has received a spray paint job with a stone flecked paint to cover up the sun faded polka dots.
Start of the skirt form.
Fashioning the skirt form from chicken wire.
Making use of what's on hand.

Adding in the Christmas tree trimmings that I was gifted from a friend's tree lot. Decided to add some peacock feathers for a nice "pop" of color.
