Imitation of Life

There’s nothing I hate more, than all these plastic people
With all their plastic promises, and all their plastic deals
They just can’t be themselves, and live their own lives out
They’re just an imitation of what life’s all about

Anthrax – Imitation of Life

I get that this is a stretch for some people but I was bored and went around and shot the manikins in the windows.  How anyone looks at one of these with products on them and thinks that it would inspire you to buy something when they look nothing like normal people.  The whole time I was taking the pictures I had the song by Anthrax in my head with that opening chorus quoted above.

  1. Fun photos. If people purchased the clothes off the “plastic” models because they wanted to look just like them, they have a head problem. If you have a similar shape, you could vision what you would look like in the same outfit. Not look like the models in the window. I believe this is how it is. I may be incorrect but the retailers believe they know how we think with their advertising! Even the ladies in the window!
