We have always been afraid of mannequins because we believe that they come to life at night and do things we don't want to know about. Nevertheless, we find them strangely fascinating. Here are some images that caught our wary eye.

|The same site features information about leather mannequins.|
There's a whole mannequin universe, apparently. This does
not make us any less afraid.

|Part of a photographic series on mannequins, but that's no excuse.|
|Oh, please. What's with the supernormal mouth?|
Are the mannequin people trying to give us nightmares?

Pass the smelling salts, please.
|More French vintage. Too real. Too real. TOO REAL.|

Never come near us, please.

But it wasn't all mannequins. We saw some creepy playgrounds and children's toys as well. Did someone really think that the lady below would be a welcome and whimsical addition to the local playground? Well, they were wrong. She's the main image in a thousand future nightmares.
Inexplicably terrifying figure on a Russian playground.

|Only playground in the world in which children beg to be taken home so they can do their homework. Gawked at on http://planetoddity.com/tag/creepy-playgrounds|
|And after the playground the kids can watch a Twilight|
Zone marathon and sleep in a haunted cemetery. Nothing against Russians
parks and rec departments, but...HUH?

|Note to manufactor: cuddly doesn't mean saggy nipples on a reclining|
dog-like creature that looks dead. Just saying.
Thus ends this week's creepotorium post. (Yes, we coined that word, and, yes, we know it is spelled awkwardly.) And now, to offset all of the creepiness, we offer you this. Isn't it cute? The jacket, that is. And the fellow wearing it isn't particularly horrendous, either. Unless...we mean...you don't think he's actually a mannequin, do you?
