I picked up this mannequin at a local estate auction. It had definitely seen better days. The dust alone sent my allergies into overdrive.
It also was in desperate need of repair...
I spray painted the stand and the topper black. I bought a half yard of muslin. I tore it into strips and decoupaged the fabric to the frame of the mannequin. 
Now it is a piece of art. And the dust is gone!
