This is awesome! As my store's chief merchandiser, I'm a big fan of subverting mannequins in subtle ways that could have been done by accident or by mischevious customers. Like, as here, putting two mannequins too close together with their hands in compromising places. Or switching the right and left (or men's and ladies') hands. Or unlocking the shoulder joints so that over a few days the arms slide down in the sleeves, turning the mannis into knuckledragging orangutangs.

On my last day of my previous job, my boss trusted me to work the majority of my shift alone with no projects on a slow day. So I redid all the mannequins in the store, layering the clothes (eg undershirt - shirt - sweater - jacket). Their basic outer clothing (jeans, jacket) remained as per standard binary genderism (men's clothes on the males, ladies' on the females), but underneath they were crossdressed in various fun things (underwear, frilly teeshirt with built-in bra, etc) with padding added where needed. Male mannequins on higher-up displays that were rarely noticed by staff were accessorized with matching purses, fluffy scarves, and necklaces. Given how rarely the mannequins are changed at that store, I doubt anyone noticed until inventory week.

I love that picture, and Queenofcrows, you are my HERO! I would have found a way to do the same thing. I have always been freaked out by mannequins, especially the ones that look the least like humans... like the silver ones. I keep expecting them to beam back up one day.
