I don't really know where to post this. But I've seen duct tape dress forms here before, so I made one! In purple, my favorite color!

My purple body double!
It doesn't reach down my bum or anything, which I blame on my sister. She was the one wrapping me up and she's a lefty and 11 years old, so I blame it on her. Thank you, sis! But my mom and I bought a table leg from the hardware store as a base, because we thought it would hold it up, which it did until I stuffed it. *boo*. Does anyone have any ideas about how to make it stand up?

The base, which is lovely, but not stable! I might make another one in yellow. . .this one bugs me because of the stand thing. Just tell me how to fix it and next time I'll do better!
Comments/advice would be appreciated!

well, i've been a) too lazy, and b) rather hesitant to shame so much duct tape by shaping it to my less than proportionate measurements to make one... but i heard something about using a shower curtain rod, and 3 of those L-shaped wall shelf brackets to make an adjustable one.. illustrated (rather quickly) by my mad ms paint skillz:
yeah, i forgot to include in there that if you do that whole drill- a - hole- in- the- base thing, you can adjust the height... but anywho... i think that should be effective, if not time intensive... i think i may just make one now... except for the fear i have of seeing myself, life- size, in all the honesty of duct tape... but alas.. i've wasted rather enough time... good job, and by the way, i LOVE your room... haha, I'd never guess you liked purple..

just blame it on the laser rain http://www.myspace.com/oooreo839

Awesome! Love the purple tape!!!  Grin

but i heard something about using a shower curtain rod, and 3 of those L-shaped wall shelf brackets to make an adjustable one.

Yep. That was my idea. I posted it along with my duct tape dummy that I covered in fabric. The shower curtain rod and the shelf brackets work really well. I've had the dummy for almost 3 years and moved 2 times and everything is still in tip top shape. Also it is adjustable. You just turn the rod till you reach the desired height of the dummy. Works like a charm.

A place where pets and their owners can march to their own beat!

A place where I vent. Ha!
