My Shadow



This is my "shadow," so to speak - a dress form, molded from my body, and made from duct tape. Some of you may remember the beginning of this adventure. Well, here's an update - the DH made a stand for me, so that it hangs at about my height. Today, we finished it out by getting it onto the stand and fully stuffed. What an alter-ego! I call her "seven"...of nine, for the Star Trek fans.

I once made one with surgical tape that you wet and wrap on your body. When it gets hard it is cut off and becomes the mold for this foam filling. It is very weird to see your form standing next to you. What a fun project.

Marilyn - this process was similar. And you're right - it is very strange!
