What are you most proud of? i love the way it came out, and if i am making something for someone larger than me i just put on a stuffed bra and add padding where needed

What advice would you give someone starting this project? well, you need someone you trust to wrap you in duct tape and then cut it down the back, and make sure you are in a cool room..it gets hot being wrapped in duct tape : )

Seems to me you could fill it with that expanding foam stuff that comes in a spray can if you want it to be more permanent.
