My installation for the IDS

I'm working on an installation for the Interior Design Show in January. I had a mannequin in mind, with a haute couture paper dress that's covered with yarn for rugs. I have a lot of yarn bundles and I thought it would be a nice use for it.
So, Ed's mom Barbara and I went to this place called Recycled Displays to look for a mannequin. We were greeted by an extremely friendly dog named Bear. He would have been happy to show us around, but the owner of the shop sent him back to do paperwork. :-)

Two ladies were happy to guide us through a maze of all kinds of mannequins. I have to say it was pretty creepy. It looked like a place from some horror movie. We managed to get one, and I named her Liz, because one of the other mannequins were from a Liz Claiborn store and I thought the name was great for her too. :-) I have Liz here now, I just have to come up with a dress for her. I'm trying to use Tacky Glue to glue the yarn to the table and to the mannequin's dress, but it's really messy. I think I'll have to look for a clear glue. Last minute, as usual......:-)
