Made the duct tape dummy with the help of my boyfreind last week! It didnt take long and is much cheaper than buying a clothes dummy. You just put on a long sleeved shirt and some pants, wrap in duct tape ( not TOO tight but snug), then carefully cut yourself out with medical scissors. Reattach the duct tape skin and stuff it! Presto, cheap dummy. I found several tutorials online but this one is the best:
I have been told this is also a great way to create patterns too!
