I decided to have a bash at a basic undersuit so needed a dummy to work on, gives me somewhere to store the pile of armour too. If your going to do this, you will need the kind of help you wouldnt ask anyone but a best mate to do!
Starting with the kit
1 pair of paper overalls
3 rolls of packing tape
3 rolls of gaffer tape
Sharp round ended scissors
Tuck the overalls into the socks, makes it easier to cut them off.
Dont put the tape on in a full peice, do it in strips and not tight. Should be just enough to push the overalls against your skin. No cutting off the circulation!
When working on the torso, make sure you leave room to breathe. The tighter the tape the harder it will be and if you call 911 or 999 (uk) because they passed out you will get grief.
Go back over with gaffer tape as this will not stretch out of shape when you fill it.
Start cutting out carefully at the top to release the head, neck and chest first. Its good to get out of there and be able to move your arms and head.
Cut off then tape up the seams, stuffing as you go, starting at the feet. If your going to have an internal frame for support, you need to add this now.
Pack where the face was and cover with tape, draw a silly face on it and be stupid with your new life size, accurate dummy of yourself.
