Clothes retailers in Oradea really love their mannequins. Some shops are just full of them, inside and out. In England it is unusual to see mannequins stood outside of shop windows, but here it seems very common. What makes this especially creepy, however, is that the shop owners often stand outside of their shops too – talking on the phone, or just getting some fresh air. These instances make it hard for members of the passing public to distinguish man from mannequin, which often results in small moments of shock and embarrassment – when the ‘mannequin’ you have been staring at as you approach, suddenly starts to move or talk.
