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 : )

What a fabulous idea. I was looking for a dress form the other day and found them to be expensive. Yours is great. Could you share any tips/tricks about how you made it? Anything to avoid? Thank you.

You didn't mention a t-shirt to prevent the tape sticking to you and not to make it so tight you don't suffocate before getting it cut off!

I am sooooo excited to see this. I belong to a theatre group and wee need a "dead dummy" to match one of our cast members and this will be a great way to get the shape right. I think his wife will need to do this...not me! I'll stuff him!
