1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Quick and easy duct tape corset on: September 15, 2012 04:11:33 AM
You need:

2 or more rolls of duct tape,
Normal transparent tape,
Bike spokes(optional),
A pair of scissors,
A soldering iron,
Some kind of rope or cable ( for lacing ).

1. You have to wrap yourself into duct tape very tightly ( the tighter you roll, the better will your corset be), but with the sticky site out.
2.  If you have the spokes and want boning in your corset, you should make this step. But it is not nessesary. You have to bend the spokes in a zig zag pattern, with approx one inch between ewery bending point. It should look like so: ~~~ you can put as many spokes in as you like, i did 3 on the belly, and 2 on the sides. You should bend them in slightly to get the best shape.
3. Then you have to wrap yourself again, this time with the sticky site pointing inwards. You also have to wrap pretty tight, and leave no open spots.
4. Now its time to get you out! If you are doing this alone, its best to stand between two mirrors, or have a webcam looking at your back. You can also cut on the front, its easier, but youll not have very good results in terms of compressing fat ant let you look skinny.
So cut a straigt line on your corset. This can be very tricky, but if you make is very slow youll be fine.
5 . If you are out and have your corset in your hand, you should straighten the cutting line a bit more. If you want, you can go a little bit in at the waist area, but you dont have to.
Now reinforce the cutting edges wit three more layers of duct tape. Now put one layer of normal office tape over the edges. This is very important, otherways your holes will be shitty.
6. Now warm up your soldering iron and poke the holes with it! You can only poke on your normal-tape-strip. You have to bring all the way through the material, and if you are thru, yo must hold it in place for three seconts and then release it. WARNING! Dont do this in a closed room! Open up the window and do it rigt nect to the window! Dont breathe the smoke wich will come! Its toxic! Put sone kind of Fabric on your mouth!
7. If you are done with that, you have to get he rope thrugh your holes. If you dint konw exactly how to do that, look at yor shoes Grin.
Now put it on your body and pull very hatd on the rope crossings. Now knot the ropes together and have a great time with your new corset!

Thanks for reading
