if you're looking for something cheap, i recently hosted a workshop with a friend and 15 other people to make personal dress forms using gummed craft paper from a local arts supply store, water and a friend. it was less than $10 to make one. we used this method from this threads link:
www.taunton.com/threads/pages/t00002_p5.asp

there are other ways to make one using duct tape and papier mach in the article.

for pics on how the dress forms turned out check out this site (picture heavy):
