    Tunic on a female mannequin?

    has anyone displayed a tunic on a female mannequin? I need a smaller mannequin for a tunic that's a little small and wondering if anyone has had the similar idea of using a female mannequin.

      I have I just set her up on a pair of saw horses in my driveway and hacked the boobs off with a sawzaw,the looks from my neighbors priceless.
      Give a man an opinion and you feed him for a day,
      teach a man to use the "search" function on the WAF and you feed him for a lifetime.

        Does the bust protrude at the chest? or is it not noticeable?

            It did until I hacked them off,then I slipped an old T shirt over the torso so any remaining sharp edges wouldn't snag the liner.

              Thanks. I like to use the same mannequin for all my tunics (i like uniformity) but the only options for my mannequin are male or female. I was either going to get another male, and carve the waist line to be slimmer, or buy a female. Looks like I go with the female, and alter the bust.

                  This post is priceless!!. All mannequins matter had me in stiches,great...on a serious note have you tried a child's one?.
                  I had to back a fibreglass one down for one but on another I had to use a sweatshirt to pad it out. Luckily I've never had to "hack" the front off. Good luck and thanks for the humour....

                    Hi,
                    Had a few female mannequins out of a department store, when I first started collecting. It depends on what the uniform is? If combat, you can conceal her rack with equipment but, the female facial features and 'camp' pose is a little obvious. Soldiers with that appearance usual end up in a penal unit!! If it's just a torso, pad the waist out and apply equipment on top.
                    Cheers,
                    Rigsby.

                        Only a matter of time when sidearms will be decorative only! They must not 'clash' with uniform colours!! And it's essential to stop for a selfie every hundred yards!

                          Nowadays you also have smaller sizes men mannequins , with adjustable legs + arms ! And with a normal man face ... White Men Lives Matters !
