It was actually a pretty funny process.
My mom wasn't feeling well, so my dad volunteered to wrap me up in duct tape, bless his soul. If I wasn't such an impatient person maybe I would be too embarassed to let him do it, but I did. Well, he did a good job, except that he wrapped my arms waaay too tight and cut off the circulation. I didn't want him to cut it off because I was afraid he might cut my bra strap, so I went to my mom. It took five minutes to wake her up, and by that time my arms were reddish purple. She finally got it off though. I must say, he must have wrapped me tight, because I looked so skinny when I had that duct tape all over me! Oh yes, and some of the duct tape got stuck to my armpit. You can imagine the removal!
Now I just need to stuff it. We're gonna be collecting newspapers for the next month.
I'll post pictures this afternoon!

so we did tape up my lil'sister, and it looked great on her
she was very relieved to be let out finally
(it took my mom and me almost 2 hours to wrap her)
when she stuffed it it turned out like this
I bought two kinds of duct-tape, that came in very handy because we used a different kind for each layer (makes it much easier to see if you've covered the whole area or not)
for my own dressform I'm thinking of doing my upper and lower half separately, so I won't be taped in for so long
