Obesity in America is hitting epidemic proportions. Too many families are eating out, stuffing themselves with deep fried foods, huge portions of meats, and then topping it all of with some decadent desert like chocolate cake. Wait, that’s what I had last night. But this trend toward super sizing everything includes mannequins. No longer are mannequins shaped like Barbie and Ken. Now you can find them in realistic, although less ideal sizes too. This family of dress forms is actually a picture for Lori’s upcoming book, and I don’t think I’m revealing any plot by showing it. Our trip down to the Bay Area was to visit West Valley College to take photos for her book that we needed a class room setting for.
