that was great. I tried this myself - but blew it...bad.
I used too much tape...prolly 3 layers.
It was really hard to cut off me.
I also tried using that spray can, expand-a-foam to fill it...yea, bad idea. Foam never set up, leaked all over the place...grrr...
Gonna give this another try now that we watched this vid.
Great tutorial! Glad to see one for the guys as most of the instructions you find on line are the female version. Nice touch the pvc pipe skeleton that also serves as a stand.
I just wanted to add that for the arms, if you are using this for a display and want the arms posable, you can take some heavy gauge but bendable wire, two or three strands as long as the arm, then wrap these strands together with more of the wire, wrapping it close together the entire length. The wrapping makes it very bendable and strong. Place this inside one of those grey foam pipe insulation tubes, tape it closed, insert it into the arm and fill up the arm with stuffing. Plastic bags from shopping makes great stuffing. They are light weight and easy to work down into the legs and arms.
I'm not picky with this thing. I don't really need to have the shoes. I just made it mostly to make future costumes, not so much for displaying really right now.
My iron man shoes do fit though, as I wear mine with the bottom cut out (slip over a real shoe).
Dude this is really awesome... if I had room for another dummy... I myself take up quite a bit of room lol. I would so make this so I could progress on my current project... really good tutorial as always.
I just bought the duct tape to build mine today after seeing this stealth. thanks for the motivation!!! I will be creating the skeletal frame a little different but fully inspired by your design. It is simple for sure so I think I may also try a head for it the same way! I would liked to have seen the seams as you sealed them. Do you need to layer the seams to create a good hold? Run the duct tape vertically or horizontally at the seam? i guess, what works best for you when you seal the cuts up after stuffing it?
