Put On A Fashion Face

I used to work with a vendor in the City of Industry that helped us out with these large character sculptures for Cartoon Network. They really had no purpose other than as corporate headquarter decorations.

As it so happens, this company is also one of the world's largest producers of retail fashion Mannequin's. It was just so bizarre, not to mention creepy to see walls of faces and bins and racks full of arms and legs. They even had a whole room dedicated to hands and feet....The image below was captured on one of my many visits.

I asked the co-owner if there was some sort of law in the fashion world against producing mannequin's that smiled. She rubbed her chin in true introspection and mumbled, "I don't know. I've never really thought of that before."
