Duct tape anyone?

So about two days ago(sunday night/Monday morning) at 1am, I told my boyfriend I wanted to start making my dress form. Now I had watched a lot of video on making a duct tape dress form. It was an interesting experience. Most of the videos I watch, no one said how long the process can take.

Keep in mind that at one point, my bf and I kept on laughing because I fell over. Literally. Lol. I stuffed the inside with newspaper. LOTS of newspaper. I found it a bit tricky on trying to get it to stand up so I took some of my brother's weights that he isn't using anymore to make it stand. I saw in couple other videos that u can use a tree stand or a hanger. I didn't want to use a hanger since I was afraid it might make a crease in the shoulders. Stuffing took me about 30min-1 hour with the help of my nephew and niece.
(Dont pay attention to the food next to it in the picture...its 1/2 of my dinner for tonight)
Materials: 1 1/2 rolls of duct tape(each roll of duct tape was 55yds), a stick I bought at lowes, a t-shirt I do not want(doesnt matter if the shirt is too big on u to do this dress form. I used an XL shirt and I'm a size small), a friend/family member who is comfortable seeing u pretty close to nude, lots of patience, newspaper/polyfiber stuffing/a lot fabric you dont need to stuff the inside
Time Duration: 2 hours to put on about 2-3 layers of duct tape all over, 1 hour to stuff the inside
Total time spent: 3 hours (give or take some minutes)

Yesterday, I went to a prescreening of Gangster Squad at the Edwards Marqe with my bf and my two friend. Pretty awesome movie. There is one more prescreening of Gangster Squad on Thursday. Not sure if I will go again. We will see.
