Step 1: Mhaura
Go to the Goldsmith's Guild shop in Mhaura (G-8) and talk to Fyi Chalmwoh. She'll tell you that the Weaver's Guild and Armor shops used to use mannequins to display their wears, but suddenly and mysteriously everyone stopped using them. Now they are nowhere to be found. Fyi Chalmwoh thinks it would be great if people used them again, but has no idea how they were made. She wants to make them and that's where you come in, being the well traveled adventurer that you are.
Talk to her a second time and she gives you a hint about where to go next. She hasn't checked the weaver's shop in Selbina.
Step 2: Selbina
Follow Fyi Chalmwoh's hint and check the Weaver's Guild shop in Selbina (H-9)/(I-9). Talk to Ramona (H-9), the old Hume woman standing near the doorway between the rooms inside the shop. She remembers these cursed mannequins… sort of… and warns you not to be foolish enough to take this quest any further. But since you are an adventurer and not going take no for an answer she gives you another hint and a key item, an old catalogue from the Woodcraft Guild.
Want to make a mannequin? Well, you're going to need some wood, dummy!
Step 3: San d'Oria
Talk to Cheupirudaux at the Woodcraft Guild (F-3) in Northern San d'Oria. Finally we get down to the bottom of the story… but I won't ruin it for you, go find out for yourself. Cheupirudaux gives you another key item, the joint diagram for building the intricate mannequin joints, and tells you no Woodcrafter knows how to make the 5 mannequin parts you need, you'll have to find ones from the old mannequins on your own.
You need to find a Mannequin Head, Mannequin Body, Mannequin Hands, Mannequin Legs, and Mannequin Feet. Each of these are Rare items so you may only hold one at a time. Good Luck!
Step 4: Teamwork!!!
So far, the mannequin parts have been a little difficult to find. There is peculation about how and where they are obtained. Most of the evidence provided by message-board postings indicates that Hands, Legs, and Feet have been found.
None of these items have yet appeared on any mob in "normal" play. Legs and Feet are said to be dropped during Garrisons and Hands have appeared in at least one Orb Battle. We still need to find where to get Heads and Bodies from.
Teamwork is essential to completing this quest because you must participate in Party events in order to obtain the mannequin parts. Mannequin parts cannot be sold at the AH even though they are tradable, Cheupirudaux tells you so when you talk to him. However, if you have more gil than you know what to do with, there are people selling the parts they find.
Step 5: (Presumably) Put it all Together
Go back to Fyi Chalmwoh in Mhaura and trade all the parts to her at the same time. She will tell you to come back in several days to claim your mannequin. I'm not sure what the neccessary wait is, but I waited 5 in-game days and talked to her again, and it was ready.
