I started this project forever ago. But I am so stoked that I finally finished it.

Operation: Up my Sewing Game, is in full force

    That's really cool. And you have a great body! Hope that doesn't sound perverted.

    I know it's pinnable. How heavy, I don't know

    It was a plaster cast filled with polyurethane foam.

    That's awesome!

    I think that would be cool just to have as a piece of art... Paint or decoupage...

    Love it. I just might try this.

    Dress forms are outrageously expensive where I live.

    I like the idea of not connecting the front and back. Just in case I get panicky, it can be quickly cut off.

    Just remember if you opt to put the plaster directly on your skin (I wore a bra and thong)) make sure you put the vaseline everywhere. Every nook and cranny, especially if you are not one for Brazilian waxes :)

    I remember a "Rescue 911" ep where the lady ws trying to make a paster cast of her pregnant belly. She did NOT use vaseline on her skin.

    Very cool. Were you able to salvage the underwear after the vaseline coating?

    I probably could have. But the bra and panties were old, and I never wore them
