Simple DIY Body form

And so I found this online and thought I’d share this ingenious idea with you guys since Cosplayers are the only people I know who would find this useful/ interesting!

I like how the DIY started with a layer of t-shirt underneath. That layer of T-shirt will effectively prevent the duct tape’s adhesive from sticking onto you. But of course, since you will eventually have to cut through that T-shirt to get out of it, it’s recommended you use one that is cheap.

 *Edit: Melvin on Facebook gave an even better suggestion! Instead of T-shirts, we can use even cheaper black thrash bags! Those big ones you get for parties. You just need to cut armholes & Neck hole and that’s it! *

I wonder what’s that piece of grey rectangular fabric for? Have any of you tried this before? Comment and let me know!


I've tried this, and it worked really well. I haven't got a proper pole stand for it; instead, I'm using a stool. It's great for fitting tops and shirts.

Make sure you wear a cheap bra as well, just in case the person cutting goes a bit mad with the scissors, me and my sister made one but she didn't have a proper stand so put it on a closed artist's easel =)

And I think tha grey fabric is the t-shirt but they used a different one for the tutorial. =3
Nice this is a great idea to get a form fitting model ( ´∀`)

I know this is an old post, but, I had to ask. Are they using a cheap microphone stand??
KittyGotClawz: I'm not sure myself, I was curious about it too and couldn't figure out what that was. But your suggestion of microphone stand seems close
