Point & Shoot competition # 160 - Mannequins

(Copying from the previous competition thread intro): Hi everybody,
Theme for this month's P&S competition is "Mannequins". Mannequins can be found anywhere - shop windows, mall entrances, alleys... They often are weird, funny, creepy, you name it! Play with reflections, passers-by, whatever makes the image interesting!

As for rules, let's use the same ones as last month's:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

Compact cameras
Sensor size does not matter.
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No cameras weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted:
Mobile phones, tablets, small sensor toy cameras.
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, Ricoh GR, any 110 film, 35mm point and shoots from the 1980s/90s (e.g. Pentax PC35AF etc.)
Cameras you can take with you in a coat pocket.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close July 31 2021 midnight PST

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the closing date/time.

Oh dear, I never shop in stores where they display the goods on mannequins and there are no malls whatsoever in my neck of the woods. I'm not even allowed to drive my Ford Transit 2004 Diesel into the big cities of neighbour Belgium anymore. I think I have to look really hard to even find a mannequin. LOL

An oddly shaped tree could be mannequin-esque...

Vendee showed a real live human that could be mistaken for one! (mannequin not tree..)

Great entries, David!
First one is really intriguing and nice layers in the second one.
