    Mannequins for Sale?

    Do to space issues I am now in need of a mannequin to put all my gear on. Does anyone know a good online retailer for cheap mannequins or know any tutorials to build your own DIY mannequin out of PVC? Do those even look good?! I need something for under $100 and the web hasn't turned up anything for that price. The shipping always puts me over my budget.

    Thanks in advance!

    try out a duct tape mannequin. They're supposed to work pretty well for cheap

    I checked out the duct tape and PVC, but I'm concerned about the weight distribution with the jet pack and such. Ideally I want to find somewhere that sells discount mannequins that are messed up somehow with a stand. I've found some between $90-500 + shipping.

    check department stores in your area, certain times of year around here, Macy's dumps theirs for about 50.00 each

    ive seen some but nothing that is cheap enough with shipping...shipping jacks up the cost significantly
