Introducing Manny and Wanda

I'd like you all to meet Manny and Wanda - my new mannequins. Since my child models have been less than helpful lately when asked to model aprons I set out on a quest to find something other than a coat hanger to display items. To make a long story as short as possible - I found Manny and Wanda looking for a new home via craigslist. Gotta love technology.

So, Manny and Wanda have already had their first modeling session and neither of them cried, or ran away, or hit the other one, or whined,

or danced around instead of standing still, or hopped on one foot,

or announced they had to go potty - now - during the photo session.

Of course, neither one could give me hugs or kisses or tell me "Mommy, I love you.", or play Dance, Dance, Revolution with me either.

As models - they're great! As kids - not at all good. I'm just hoping my late night photo shoots will now go a little smoother - now that I no longer need to use myself or my children as models.

Now, just wait for your children to beg to model something for you, haha. That's what would happen to me!

My models act the same way sometimes! Manny and Wanda look like great finds. Someday, I'm going to get a dressform. My grandma sold hers in a garage sale once thinking "nobody would want that old thing." She never understood why I would want it?!?!?

Have a great Halloween Beth!

Manny and Wanda seem like they'll be more cooperative than your other models, and are quite an attractive pair!

I am so liking those aprons! It's great you found Manny and Wanda. But I know you like your 'children' models much better!

Great job on the aprons!

One very good reason I'm loving having quit selling for the moment...the modeling sessions killed us. ;) Like the photo of the apron ballerina though!
