Who is Lucy Bootkidz?

Lucy is a wire mannequin originally designed as a line drawing sketch by Karen Henry in 2005.

Lucy is made from 3/8 inch twisted steel rod using an industrial machine.

Lucy was designed at the London Metropolitan University in London as part of Karen Henry's final project in HND furniture design and realisation.

Lucy has colourful wavy yellow hair and a blue dress - other colours are available.

Lucy has appeared in a leading retail department stores window displays as a fashion mannequin.

Lucy was exhibited in the window display at Gap in Regent Street London and she has also appeared in Debenhams children's spring collection.

Lucy's Wellington Boots are made from dyed cement. These are cast using a Wellington Boot mould using original wellies and sand casting.

The frame is electro-painted. Electro-painting is paint applied using electricity. Paint is applied to a metal frame paint particles are attracted to the frame building a thick layer of "bubblegum-look" paint. 

Interesting characteristics of the design are that from the side she is thin - from the front, you can see right through her. 

Hang clothes or fashion accessories such as scarves, gloves, rain-coats etc.
