After looking at everyone else's fabulous duct tape dress forms (see StarterKit, Naked_Ninja, smileygirl, XOcrazy4uXO, etc etc) I got the bug too! So, late one night, I convinced my beloved boyfriend to wrap me up in duct tape. See me in progress!
And here's the final product, after stuffing it with the insides of an old pillow and mounting it on an old lamp stand:
I'm pretty happy with it, although I do think that my chest area somehow came out a little bit smaller than it is in real life.
I do want to add a few bits of advice for anyone else thinking of making a dummy: rule #1; no matter how much duct tape you THINK you need, buy two extra rolls. After being abandoned at 11:00 pm by my boyfriend for half an hour while he searched for a 24 gas station or grocery store, during which I couldn't bend over, sit down, or lift my arms above my head, I learned this lesson the hard way. Buy extra tape!!!
And secondly, when it comes to your rear, I'd recommend using a cheap skirt or just an extra long t-shirt as the base for applying the duct tape. I used old leggings, and when it came time for my boyfriend to cut me out ... it was a little unnerving. If I could do it again, I'd go commando with a skirt. It's hard to manuever around those buttcheeks with a scissors!
Anyways, thanks to those before me for your excellent tutes and inspiring images. I hope I can inspire someone else, too!
