Guess who this is?? Hint – one of her signature songs is “Secondhand Rose” and “People.”
Did you ever want to own a mannequin that looks exactly like your favorite celebrity? Even if that celebrity is you? I’m suprised how many fans want a double of their favorite celeb in 3-D and in their home and how artists can do this.
Phoebe Phillips, a talented visual merchandiser/artist in the Seattle area can transform a regular mannequin into your favorite celebrity. She sent us these photos of a Barbra Streisand mannequin she created for a private customer. Phoebe, is one of those rare combinations of freelance visual merchandiser and talented sculptor. She not only creates fantastic window displays and styles mannequin wigs, but she repairs mannequins and does custom work to transform the features of a mannequin to look like a celebrity.
Here is a pictorial on the steps on how she created mannequin bust form look alike of Blondie lead singer, Debra Harry.
This is how the mannequin arrived at Phoebe’s studio. The head had to be ripped off and the neck reattached at the correct angle.
After a major re-sculpt of the face, the final skin tone was applied and make up begins.
Needless to say, the steps involved are painstaking and time consuming, so custom work isn’t cheap.
If you want a mannequin repaired or a customized project like this one, send us an email and we will refer you to Phoebe.
