lookin' good

These guys and a number of other, equally odd looking mannequins proudly guard the windows of a work uniform store on Insurgentes.  The majority look like they were discarded in the 1970s by a department store and “updated” through tape-on mustaches, less than flattering haircuts, and occasional sex-changes, then dressed in the finest nurse, chef, and pizza delivery outfits the store has to offer.  It’s one of the absurd landmarks that I’ve come to love in this city.
