Welcome to Second Hand Land !
We are collectors, artists, photographers, film makers and parents . We find cool things and sell them. We love MCM vintage collectibles and vintage fashion. Sometimes we get things from photo shoots, films and commercials. Sometimes we just have stuff we hope to recycle and save folks money from buying new stuff.
I found this crazy mannequin head at a thrift store a while ago.
She has started to grow on me.
I think the maker must of had Twiggy in mind. Then I started researching Twiggy mannequins and discovered a whole world of Twiggy worship in mannequin form.
Even before Twiggy became an icon, Adel Rootstein, famous mannequin maker, chose her as the model to base a series of six different mannequins on. Twiggy was 14 years old in 1964 when Adel captured her elfish image in mannequin form.
Sadly, I may say bye-bye to my mannequin if the price is right, she is on the auction block this week.
If anyone out there may know something about her history please share.
