Ducktape Body Cast Tutorial

You know when you want to make something fit your body perfectly, but the

problem is that you don’t have something to use as a mold for it? Sure, you can

buy a sewing mannequin, but that might be tough if you’re on budget. Well,

Dalai Dama is here to help!

As you’ll see in this step-by-step, you can make your own mannequin, one

made to fit your own shape, and you’ll only spend around $20. It turns out

that today is your lucky day!

Material's you will need:
·         Scissors
·         Pillow filling for stuffing out your form
·         A metal base
·         2-3 rolls of duct tape
·         Apiece of cardboard
·         An old hip-length T-shirt
      A food foil (for the neck)
And most importantly Friends!


1. Prepare all your tools, supplies and feed your friends!!!! (Not after midnight though.)

2. Find an old t-shirt that fits your body and reaches just under your hip. Wrap your neck with a food foil to secure it (as shown on the picture), and tuck the foil under the shirt. 


3 . Have a friend to help you in wrapping your silhouette with the duct tape. The first strip should go under your breasts (and be sure it’s tight enough). The next stripe goes crossed in between the breasts as shown on the picture.

4. Continue wrapping one by one! Try to make your belly a bit bigger, so that way when the wrapping gets tighter you don't faint. If you feel like a mummy, you’re doing it right!

5. Next, you’ll need to take off the food foil and make a sort of collar, like the one in the t-shirt as you can see on the picture.

6. This is how it should look like at the back. Wrap more tape evenly from your waist till the end of your t-shirt line.

7. Now it's time to cut it in the back, that way you can escape!

8. Last but not least, use your magical powers to get rid of the cut! And by magical I mean more tape of course.

9. Time to fill the form with the pillow filling, small pieces of fabric leftovers or even cotton like the ones in pillows. Then finish your work sticking the form on your metal base (optional).

11. Behold! Your masterpiece is finished and you are still alive!
