Dear Antique Shop,
The headless mannequins in store fronts at The Gap are unrealistically proportioned, but there is no mistaking them for real, size -2 headless people.  The mannequins at Old Navy are too cartoon-like and annoying to be frightening. However, to pose a seven foot woman in a black dress and curly wig amongst the clutter of your shop is just asking for your customers to jump, gasp, and clutch their chests in surprise again and again. It’s scary! Mannequins should not be placed in such a way as to be mistaken for real people when one turns a corner. Thank you.
Startled Customer

P.S. It is a lovely dress and purse.
