    Jun 19, 2008, 9:17 PM - Mannequins for Sale? #1

    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
