Here she is in her modesty cover up( Like it cover anything LOL) . She asked if she could be a Vargus girl and since she had her heart set on it she got her wish . Her arms and legs are reattached and a thumb so she is ready to stand in a lingerie window now on Saks 5th Ave . Or the corner which ever pays the most :-) These mannequins were made with a mixture that a rubber like substance in them . As they became old the rubber tried and cracked it also caused them to become misshaped and legs and body froze in crooked state . The material used did not stand the test of time . Their bodies sometimes would become flat from laying down, legs and ankles bent and stayed that way when they were no longer subtle . She is attributed to Margit Studio's NY NYC a famous sculpter ,who decorated window's from Macy's, bloomingdales and more . It was her dream to make a doll and did make a few that were intended to be dolls and they faired even worse over the years . But she is much more famous for her minature mannequins .
First post of her
