Duct Tape Dummies
Just wondering if its possible to make a duct-tape dummy by yourself?
I kind of need one made for my suit, but I don't want my family to know (I'd rather avoid the sort of confrontation that would arrise from that)
So, can it be done solo?
not really some of it perhaps but you'd not be able to finish it.
Definitely need at least one person helping you.
Where there’s a will there’s a way. I’ve made all my duck tape dummies by myself and the dummy came out fine. You just have to be really flexible.
Pretty much have every thing in arms distance and start at your feet and work your way up you’ll want everything but your arms covered then tear off a large amount of strips of tape and stick them to every available surface in arms reach (tables, chairs, desks, ect…) Then begin taping up your NONDOMINANT HAND AND ARM!! This way your dominant hand can cut you out of the dummy it would be a little hard to explain if you got stuck at this point and needed to call for help so if your left handed tape up your right arm first, if your right handed tape up your left arm first. Once that’s done mark down the center (on the front) of the dummy with a marker and slowly cut down the front then mark on your skin were the line is on the costume. Mark and cut out your taped up arm until you can wiggle your taped up arm out of it. Then gently tape (lightly you should only need a little as this tape will be removed) the open chest of the dummy up against the line you drew on your skin, you might have to tape a little at the back of the neck to keep it in place. Then work on taping up your Dominant arm. Once done mark and cut yourself free, also remove the tape which held the dummy to your skin. The reason why you want to mark yourself and tape the dummy temporarily to your skin is so that it doesn’t sift and give you a crooked dummy.
This is one of those thing you’ll need a lot of time for. Good luck.
