Look-alike display mannequins

We make look-alike mannequins of existing and historical persons. We base our design on photos and paintings. The life-size display figures are very similar, but a 100% similarity based on images alone is unlikely. In the right decor and with the right attributes it becomes clear to every spectator who is meant. Fun fact: Even the celebrities sometimes lose their own look-alike contest. According to wikipedia, Dolly Parton has lost a ‘Dolly Parton Look-Alike Contest’.

Image requirements

We make look-alike heads in collaboration with the client. We depend on your images for the best results:

  • The images may consist of photographs or pictures of paintings and drawings;
  • Provide as many images as possible from one time period, people change over the years;
  • The more angles someone is portrayed from, the better;
  • Choose one main image. This is the base for the clay head. The rest of the images are supportive;
  • If there is any uncertainty about the color of eyes and hair, please indicate which colors you prefer.
