In my last post, I shared some history of miniature mannequins in retail, and I shared photos of my mannequin project in various stages. Here are some pictures of the finished “Minikin.”
I used a Tonner Company Antoinette doll as the basis. After studying the posture and style of vintage mannequins, I reshaped her face and resculpted sections of her body to make her look like a 1940s style mannequin. I used Apoxie Sculpt clay and LaDoll clay. She is painted to look like painted plaster. Her lingerie is permanently attached to her body, but she could wear a dress over it. She disassembles and fits snugly in her custom crate. She stands on a wooden base and is 16” tall, or ¼ scale as a miniature mannequin.
The “Lady-Like Minikin” has found a new home at “Facets by Marcia” where she is modelling miniature accessories that are for sale in Marcia’s shop. How perfect is that?
