Materials so far:
2 rolls of duct tape
1 Cheap segmented floor lamp ( I got mine for $10 at Oddlots)
6 canisters of insulation foam (buying a bunch of polyurethane foam would probably be cheaper)
1 old shirt
2 pieces of wood
1 empty toilet paper roll (jut the cardboard middle)
To start, I covered myself in duct tape, with the help of this tutorial.
|This is an earlier dress form of me in a corset.|
The foam had to be done in sections to fill everything out. Before I did the final foaming, I added the TP roll (picture below). After the foam finally dried I traced the bottom of the form onto some cardboard, cut a hole for the toilet paper roll then duct taped it all in place.
|I taped the TP roll to the lamp segment then filled it the rest of the way with foam.|
|The form is slightly bigger than I am b/c I've lost a little weight since the taping. But a little extra room can't hurt! lol|
That's what I've done so far. I plan to cover it with some batting and muslin when I get a chance. But until classes are over, it must be put on hold.
