Mannequins

quins

When I was a kid I have an uncommon fear, that of mannequins, cemetery and church sculptures. I had this image in my head that they would move any given time. And there are lots of those creepy looking sculptures  back in the Philippines.

This fear would go on as I grew up.....thank goodness I left and where I am now, creepy sculptures are not to be found, they are wonderful works of art, though inspired from something creepy. Today, the fear isn't there and I laugh at myself when I remember how coward I was. lol. Nowadays, they have become beautiful photo subjects.

  12. my bro had the same fear too, anything similar to mannequins like dolls takot siya and would scream at the top of his lungs everytime he sees one. After effect of the film "Chuckie" that's why i would never let my kids watch that movie so they won't develop the same fear.

    Here's my beautiful entry this week, hope you check it out too

  16. I always love mannequins. Pero I sometimes hate them 'cause they look so beautiful and perfect. Which makes me insecure at times. LOL
