Most men can relate to experiencing boredom as their partner shops for clothes, but Vancouver-based media specialist Steve Venegas turned his experience into a game. Venegas developed The Gap Mannequin Project is a hilarious series in which the husband of two years mimics the exact outfit on mannequins in the Gap while his wife is off shopping. The playful project is humorously explained by Venegas: “I try on clothes and have my photo taken because it’s funny to dress like a dummy.”
It all began on one of his wife’s shopping trips. As he was waiting for her to try on clothes in the dressing room, Venegas had a stroke of genius to dress up like the mannequins in the store. With a simple “I’m mannequin size” thought, the man decided to create a fun game out of their future shopping trips. He found a way to make the trip a win-win situation for him and his wife instead of a dreaded to-do.
