I had some friends over yesterday to help me construct a duct tape dummy for my costume projects. It went pretty smoothly, and after crawling out of it and letting it air out overnight I stuffed four pillows worth of stuffing to fill it out. Now I just have to mount it on a stand or hang it from a support beam to begin my bodysuit projects.
First project up: a fat suit!
Let Dr. Seuss explain these stories, kids.
Earning your hood is a very special occasion for a Dolly, to them it’s not a hood or a mask.. it’s their true face..true nature.. to be worn for all to see.
To be in the clutches of a rubber sister…wow!
One of us! One of us! (Hot)

I can’t really pass this up. It’s too amusing!
CLYDE THE CREEP: MASK SCULPT
After around 3 very solid days of work I have completed this mask sculpt for the character Clyde the Creep, which will be featured in an upcoming film/photo project. He is a very unpleasant and repellent sort, and I have a feeling that this face is only a mask for the truly grotesque creature that hides beneath it. Certainly delving into darker territory here.
The sculpt was handed over to my makeup artist friend, who will mold it and fabricate a few copies in foam latex. I had originally intended to go for silicone, but I have painted latex pieces in the past and know my way around that material better. Silicone, while more resilient, requires further study and experimentation on both my and the makeup artist’s parts before we attempt finished pieces with that material.
Creep mask sculpt for upcoming project. WIP, still needs finessing and additional details.
