You did a great job!

I've been thinking of making one for myself, but I've been wondering; wouldn't the duct tape actually be a bit bigger than your true measurements?  As in did you have to trim it or something to get it to your numbers?  Or is it actually true to your size/not noticeably different?

That is fabulous!! I love that you used an umbrella post, and those brackets for the feet were a stroke of genius!

Wow you did a great job!  The body is smooth and looks real, and the stand is amazing.  What did you use at the neck? It looks interesting too.
