So I have posted this into recon clothing because A) This is a reconstructed item and B) It has to do with clothing. But if I am in the wrong please let me know and I shall move along
Anyhoo.... I found myself in our local value villiage this afternoon, and low and behold I found this beauty just waiting for me to walk by...
I grabbed her so fast and giggled all the way to the cashier:D So what is a girl to do with a form that has a 37" bust and a 24" waist and no butt? Well.... you just need to customize her and this is how I did it.
Strip down your new friend and gawk at her Barbie like figure. Wonder why you don't have that figure and then remember the chocolate bar you had for dinner.
Add on some padding. I used upholstery batting but I am sure anything wll work.
Use some poly-fill to add in fullness in the areas that require it. I gave my lady friend over here some breast implants, a whole new tummy, and some extra junk-in-the-trunk.
Marvel and your frankinstin creation, grab some coffee and start thinking of names.
Cut a small hole in some lighter weight batting and place over the neck, drape this over the chest area to give a nice finish.
Take the knit cover that your lady friend came with and use it to cut out a pattern for her new and improved figure. I had this great metallic lepord print in my stash and I knew that the two would love eachother.
I needed to add a few inches to the bottom of the pattern to accomadate the fullness... I think I added 4 inches to be on the safe side.
Hand baste & gather the bottom of your dress to fit your lady friend and the procced to glue it to the under side, I don't trust glue alone so I added some tacks for good luck. For the neck piece I did the same thing, gathered it all up, glued it in real good so it won't budge.
Dress up your new lady friend (as you can't tell I haven't decided on a name yet, but I am open for suggestions) for her first photo shoot
Call B/F or some other person with metal working skills, and let them know that you will need a stand ASAP, oh yeah and tell them to paint it red
I think I am in love...
Thanks for tuning in
Let me know what you think!
