This place seems to have every kind of mannequin you could imagine.

I got one free by just asking the manager at my local department store.

I guessing any store selling clothing with them in the window or whatever would have some extras they might part with. (Or come on down to a civilized part of the world. :)).

There are thousands of new & used ones on Ebay.
Otherwise in your area, craigslist or watch for store closings or store closing liquidators.

@AshLeigh I don’t have any advice to add to these excellent suggestions but I just wanted to ask…did you really love dolls when you were growing up? Because having a mannequin is like having a giant doll! I think it’s a little weird, as you say, but kinda cool. Now I want one myself! All I have is a boring headless dressform. I use if to design on and it takes up a lot of room. My husband would kill me if I got a giant doll too! I can only dream! If I had an Etsy business I could really use one then it would be practical…..hmmmm….

@Earthgirl I actually hated them. But the idea of having something like this in my room sounds awesome. Hah.

My roommate had one in college. He got his from a department store that was replacing old mannequins.

Just don’t hang it out your window by its neck before you leave for spring break. Campus Security gets a little upset and new dorm doors are expensive…

Dorfman’s is the best if you want museum quality. I’ve bought several over the years in the course of my work in museums. And they have all kinds.
