It is not uncommon for mannequin refurbishing to cost more than some new mannequins, but the makeup and skin tones should reflect the money spent in both realism and quality. Remember to spend freely on mannequins and other display tools, as they will pay for themselves with increased sales, and cheap manikins are often exactly that - cheap. For realistic mannequins to really pull it off, they must be quality.
Some decors work better with abstract, headless, or other non-realistic mannequins. Some can be whimsical, cartoon, or even non-human. Make sure you want to relay a message of high fashion or glamour, or specific walks of life (golf) if you choose realistic mannequins.
