This is my series devoted to the real life models who became Rootstein mannequins.
All the mannequins posted here are from the Nomad series released in 1999. I have no idea why it was called the Nomads – if you do please leave a comment.
The African American models/mannequins featured here were Ardelle
Dawn Leaks, Monica and a hot male named Moshe who I have never seen in mannequin form. There were two Anglo women in the Nomad series: Axelle and Katerina (daughter of Gisela Mindt).
Out of all the hundreds of Rootstein mannequins I have recycled for retail chains, most of the African American ones I got were from this collection. Except none of them had the male.
When I did a promo photo of me as “the queen of mannequin recycling” wearing a crown I was posed between two Dawn Leakes mannequins. However the nudity caused quite a stir so I didn’t use it.
If you want to buy a Rootstein mannequin, we frequently have used ones for sale here. You can also sign up to receive an email the next time we get more used Rootstein mannequins in stock or follow us on Facebook.
