Sweetie proved his unbelievable awesomeness once again last night by binding me from neck to thigh in duct tape.
Now get your minds out of the gutter and check out my new dress form!
Stuffing it was the weirdest part. So surreal to be poking and prodding a three-dimensional green vinyl clone of myself. It’s filled with used plastic bags, styrofoam peanuts, bubble wrap, and other junk that I’ve collected. Very satisfying to put all that garbage to good use. And the total cost of the project was just $15 for a giant roll of duct tape. Could have been a couple bucks cheaper if I’d gotten the generic silver-grey duct tape, but I coveted the green.
Now I just need to conjure up a stand so I can use it for skirts and dresses. I’m already using it to finish recrafting an old ripped up long-sleeved shirt of sweetie’s into a tunic for me.
Lest ye think it’s all about me around here, I’ve also got projects going for sweetie and for a certain birthday boy. And I’m making the craziest quilt you’ve ever seen to keep us cozy at the various festivals we’re going to in August. It’s four different colors of fake fur on one side and random pieces of fleece on the other side.
