Imaginative use of vendors and barkeeps?

    I'm sure many people use them more imaginatively than I, but I guess I'll start the ball rolling and we can share some ideas? The idea to make this thread came from a thread on UHall on Art.
    Here's a re-creation of an artist and model I set up some time ago

    Because she's actually a barkeep you can get a 'reading' from her. Cross her palm with a few gp (well drop them on her head) and she will thank you and ask you to choose would you like a reading from the ball or cards. Tell her 'ball' or 'cards' to hear your fortune.
    You'll find her in the Angry Mongbat Tavern on Europa if you'd like to try it.

    I wish I'd saved the coord's, but I didn't. This is on Pac shard and I thought it was one of the most ingenius ways to use a mannequin. I really wish somebody would tell me how they did this:

    Yep, love the artist and model posing. That wins my vote. Guess you could do variations with a customer and a seamstress, or sculptor and model, etc etc. Maybe an executioner/guardsman and prisoners.

    Personally I've only ever set Vendors up in unimaginative ways. Namely as guards at the doors, or put a monk robe on one of them and set them up in my library.

    In the past I would name the vendors for a few past members of my guild and have them sitting around the old guild house. I'll probably do something like that again with mannequins - definitely cheaper and better looking than the statue makers.

    Thats my friends house and there are few people on pac with this (my house is Anther and one in luna) All you need is a ladder you most tbe the owner and it takes some time to place him forward out to steeps but is easy to place on post with a ladder and goza with a stool...
