Even the most beat up, tattered, faded dress form can be transformed into beautiful, Cinderella. All you need is a hot glue gun, silk flowers, creativity and A LOT of patience.
 001
All of these floral sculptures were once beat up used dress forms that were purchased from our Used Mannequin section (our inventory changes all the time, so if you don’t see what you are looking for, check back)

010

Some became art pieces for the home.
 011

Others became displays at a retail store.

 013
When the retailer put this floral sculpture in the window, many customers came in requesting to “buy that dress” that the mannequin was wearing.

014

While silk flowers are the most popular choice for upcycling the mannequins, other materials can be used – beads, tiles, buttons, fabric.
 015
As beautiful as these are, they are labor intensive.
 016
So if you purchase a used dress form from us (or from someone else) and want to have someone else do the labor, we can refer you to the two artists we worked with that created these on our site. (They are located in Northern California).
