I made this dummy with the help of my boyfriend. What I did was that I put on an old tight t-shirt and then started to put tape on the shirt in many layers. When there was enough with tape he cut open the shirt from the back. After that I taped the dummy together and stuffed it foam rubber. I will put fabric on it when I have time, but it works well the way it is. Smiley

we did something similar to this in a 3d design class, except we just covered ourselves in saran wrap and then put the tape on, that way you dont have to waste any clothing.

Thanks so much for posting this!  It never occured to me to make my own.  I've been looking for a second hand one but they're always is bad condition and too expensive!

Wow! I've been contemplating an art project where I have to make 3d arms and hands... I tried to use wire before but it wasn't very cooperative... this is a good idea! thank you!

Yes, I used masking tape. When you start to make this dummy and someone is putting tape in layers all around you, make sure that this person doesn't tape too hard or else you'll have difficult to breath. For me it was like I was wearing a corset. It wasn't easy to breath in it, but it was worth it. Smiley
I make a lot of clothes, so this dummy is really useful.

i might try making one of these. when not in use you could dress it up in your clothes! lol. better than piling them on the floor or squashing them into limited drawer space, which is what happens to mine when they're not in the washing basket.

have you measured it to see if it's accurate?
