Real vs. Pretend

I used a mannequin to model all of my stuff for ebay and etsy this week and I really like how the pictures came out.

From a customers point of view I would be interested in finding out what is more visually appealing. A lot of people say they like clothing to be modeled on a real person so they can judge the fit and compare sizing but I have also heard the opposite and people don't want to buy clothes already worn by someone.. even if it was only for a minute or two.

What do you think, which picture would make you want to buy the shirt more.. or not at all.. whatever..!

Nothing against Jen, but I'm bored of her look. I love the mannequin. Can you put big funky rings on her? Seriously, use the plastic girl.

I like the mannequin; though I grew up in a house that kept a headless mannequin in the front window, dressed according to season.

I'm on the mannequin's team. I think it's maybe because she's sort of shiny. Also I agree with Sarah about giving her accessories.

I vote mannequin, too. Those pics looks great.
