I'd have a pair on a doll to show them in use, but also would lay them out in pairs attractively. By this I mean lay them flat in rows so people can see the patterns and colors. COnversely, you could have one of those stand-up display boards and pin or attach them some other way. I think the key is to have them unrolled and in pairs.

flat legs? Using cardboard or heavy card stock trace or draw some legs or even photo copy real legs....cut them out and display. yuou could make a fan of legs sticking feet up then you can roll up the rest so they can see the pattern. or lay them flat in pairs along the table, kinda like the tie displays at department stores. the important thing is that there is at least on good example of how they work (as obvious as it may seem.)

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

What about a little clothes line, with the legwarmers pinned with wooden clothes pins?

I like the clothes line idea. Could you get a really big, not-creepy-looking doll to show them being worn?

I don't come here anymore. MDC has become overgrown with ads & useless extra forums.
