This is a mock-up for what would be the poster for an idea I had for a sequel to the 1987 film ‘Mannequin’ wherein Emmy (the mannequin) and Johnathan (the artist/window dresser) have a kid named Billy (he will steal your heart) who, like his Father, can see that his mom is actually a mannequin!

My Mannequin Mom

When she’s a mannequin, hijinks ensue!

 

.

.

.While learning about ‘The Ancient World’ at school (where he is picked on by other kids) Billy learns of  his “Egyptian lineage” (through his mom the mannequin (see the original film) who gives ‘knowing’ looks, shows Billy some old jewelry, tricks bad people by momentarily turning into a mannequin, etc..etc..), and then, with the help of Anubis (the jackal-headed god of the afterlife) who (in human form) is working  in a shopping mall shoe store, finds out about a hidden treasure which is rightfully his (because he’s descended from Egyptian Royalty!), and then, after battling some buffoonish criminals (and winning over the kids at school who once bullied him), he gets the treasure which allows Anubis to quit his job at the shoe store, and also get his Father (who it is suggested may have a drinking problem) back his window dresser job, after the computer (the Window Dresser 2000) that stole his job at the beginning of the film is exposed as being not only evil but pathetically inept at dressing a window properly, and so, is fired and then thrown into the alley where a homeless man is possessed by its evilness leaving open the possibility for future hijinks.
