Thieves steal two naked mannequins from garden party at Santa Rosa home

The Santa Rosa garden party featuring nude mannequins has suffered some attrition. Jason Windus, who posed a quintet of naked fashion dummies around a wicker table earlier this week to protest the machinations of a “nosey neighbor” who’d complained to the city about his fence, woke up Thursday morning to discover that one of his party guests was missing.

Late Wednesday night, Windus heard what he thought was “some kids having fun” outside his house on Peterson Lane. Those revelers, he believes, made off with a mannequin who’d been outfitted with a blond wig, leopard print eye mask and nothing else.

The following morning, a second female mannequin was missing. In their haste to get away, the thieves apparently jostled the life-like figure, whose right leg fell off. The wayward limb spent the night on the sidewalk. Windus said Saturday he has no plans to report the thefts to police, but he has ordered a pair of new mannequins.
