Mannequin Monday #62

So 62 weeks into this series, I’m beginning to attract spam from mainland Chinese mannequin vendors. Finally! I kind of feel like Steve Martin in the phone book scene from The Jerk. Oh yeah, things are going to start happening to me now.*

But enough of about that. Admit it. This week’s addition to the planet’s largest repository of blighted mannequins made you scream, “Damn! I gotta buy that hoodie right NOW!”

Or, you wondered what sort of demon possessed that mannequin designer that day and why a boutique owner in Cusco, Peru, would buy it. And actually use it.

New to this weekly series? Then I cordially invite you take a few minutes to catch up here. And here too with a special video presentation I put together to celebrate its first year. It’ll make your Monday a whole lot better than the last one — mainly as a reminder that your week can only get better.

By the way, this image, snapped on 2 May 2013 in Cusco, also serves as today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 577th (!!) straight. When you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can browse some of those here. Enjoy!
