Mannequin Babies

Mannequin babies like to go to work with Mommy wearing the same exact outfit.
Skippy is giving Mommy problems with his beret. He keeps wanting to take it off.
Mommy doesn't understand why Skippy keeps taking off the wool beret.
Mommy is wearing the beret so Skippy has to wear it too.
The beret makes you look nice, Skippy!
Don't take off the damn beret!

This kid is a real pain in the ass, Mommy thinks.
So what if it's 102 degrees out?
The beret compliments the outfit!
The outfit will not be the same without the beret!
Mommy and Skippy have to match!

Smile for the camera, Skippy!
Look up!
Don't touch the damn beret or we're going back inside and we're changing out of matching outfits.
You want that?
I didn't think so.
Now smile.

Look in that window, Skippy.
See what happens to mannequin babies that talk back to Mommy?
They get placed in American Apparel windows and forced to wear lamé leggings.
You don't want your bow tie taken away from you, do you?

LOL - this random weirdness is exactly why I check in with Hipstercrite, every single day. :) Please tell me you still have Mannequin Baby.

awww so and your mannequin baby look so happy.
No kid likes to wear hats, not even mannequin ones I see. Don't they realize it makes them look even cuter?

I want the second outfit...possibly your entire wardrobe.

How can you let that mannequin child walk around without shoes? No wonder Skippy is inclined to rebel.

Am I wrong to point out that women can have their own babies and don't have to resort to mannequins?

Believe it or not I actually have a friend who has a mannequin baby. She doesn't dress it up though, it lies butt-naked on the floor gazing out the window (if gazing is indeed what mannequins do).

Kind of creeps me out to tell the truth...

Oh god this is funny! lol. I love your blog!

Lauren, you are a complete nutcase. I love it.

At 8:32 PM, Blogger EMQ said...

So you're the one who dressed that baby in the gold lame leggings! Would it be wrong of me to admit that I actually considered buying them for my daughter when I saw them on that mannequin baby in the window?

It's an "early reader" book for twisted adults!

Keep that mannequin delinquent off our streets! Pleaseandthankyou.

Creepy and disturbing!

Is this a real phenomenon?

If not, a brilliant piece of "outsider" performance art / social critique!
