Question Asked:

Ok, she's been christened Ginny because she is always legless, get it, lol?

So my mother actually bought her and gave her to me. It was a unusual present I have to admit, but that is my mother. I might have preferred the dress Ginny had been wearing at some point in her life, but actually I think she is starting to grow on me.

My friend thinks she's a bit creepy. All I said was keep your voice down, she might hear you, lol! Anyway, I do actually think she is quite interesting. She has a strange pose for a mannequin, like maybe she is supposed to be holding something. A baby or a machine gun, I'm not sure which. She has a very trendy haircut and of course, she is completely legless all the time and has been known to fall over at the slightest nudge.

So she is my new friend and I really wanted to do something with her, and display her, but I'm not sure what to do?

I could maybe paint her, or just dress her up and put her in the downstairs toilet to make visitors feel really self-conscious when they go for tinkle. Or maybe do something more crazy. Maybe make her into a candle holder or cover her in flashing lights. Maybe I should actually make a little gin bar and have her as the centrepiece showing off my gin bottle collection.

Do you have ideas for decorating my mannequin? Garden bird bath maybe? I could put her in my husband's workshop and spook him out every time he goes in there. Or put her outside the front of the house and put a camera in her eye to keep an eye on the neighbours. Maybe I could make the head turn slowly, lol!

Maybe mirror tiles or something like old magazines.

I'm open to anything. Maybe I should start collecting them and have a whole army of lady-quinns holding babies with machine guns. That should really freak the husband out.

She couldn't have just got me that jumper I wanted. Sorry mother xxx

Ginny the lady-quinn has to be a barmaid I think.
