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 gets hot being wrapped in duct tape : )

I tried this once, wearing an old tight tee-shirt and let my daughter tape me up. Thought it came out ok, but used pillows to stuff it so it didn't work out so well. Thanks for the idea to stuff it firmly -duh. Will try again.
