I hate to sound clueless ... but why did she pass out just from having her butt done?  What's the risk in doing non-facial body parts?

Well, to start out, whenever a person stands still for any amount of time,curculation is compromised to the upper extremities. Soldiers standing at attention have a tendency to pass out because they are required to keep their legs straight with knees locked. Only when told "at ease", can they bend the knees, slightly. The bending of the knees makes the legs work a bit harder, therefore keeping the muscles 'awake'and increases circulation to the brain.  That is wht my daughter hit the deck the first 2 trys. After I learned about the bent knee thing, no more fainting. She also has some weird phobia about people touching her from the back (where she can't see what they're doing). The final casting on daughter was done with her laying on the floor. She did fine.
 Pregnant women also can suffer the fainting thing just because of strange bodily changes that occur during pregnancy. During the entire casting process, you must keep a constant conversation going AND keep asking " you doin' ok?" If at any time your model feels 'funny', faint, weak, lightheaded, etc. YOU MUST STOP. You may even need to abort your process and start over. Safety of the model is the most important thing. Face casting can be tough because many people don't think they are claustrophobic. But when the face gets covered, well...that's when we all find out that they are. Constant comunication with a model whose face is covered. You also need to go over hand signals before you start so that if your model needs something, she can let you know.  Another important thing is to make sure your model has eaten. Some people will faint just from low blood sugar, no matter what body part you're casting
I hope this helped explain a few of the safety issues for you.

Oh my God, wow. These are so gorgeous! I love all of them, but my absolute favorites are the tealight holder and the hear/speak/see no evil one! Amazing, they're all amazing! I'd absolutely love to try doing this, but I'm not sure I get the process completely, and I have no idea where I could get the materials needed.
