    Market research on "camp" mannequin

    As some of you may be aware I launched my website recently selling clothes. However, I've got some pretty mixed feedback, mainly about the male mannequin I've used, I'm wondering if it's cool or not. I have admit I think he's cool but people prefer a real guy, just wanted your thoughts.

    Here's the mannequin

    Here's the real person

    Does it look weird as i've used a real person for the womens

    Your thoughts would be much appreciated

    real people look much better

    (on the links above both the male ones are the mannequin though?)

    if you used a decent model which makes the clothes look good i would have thought people would be more willing to buy them over a plastic mannequin

    Hi Mate.

    My 2p's worth......

    Real people, everytime.

    Whoever, they need to be in a normal looking pose, not like the bloke in the second link.

    both of the men links real and fake person look a bit overly camp, and uncomfortable, perhaps try using real guys, in comfortable poses.

    if the options you have are the above then the mannequin Id go for. Your male "model" make it looks as tho you are targeting the gay community ( appologies if thats the case ). For female clothes the missus says real people for sure..

    Looks like I'll be saying farewell to camp steve (name of mannequin) and using a real man and not some pretty boy. Didn't want to accept it as I obviously have to pay a model, but if that's what it takes to be corporate asos then so be it, thanks for the advice guys and girls.
