Progress on My Body Double

The original paperboard dress form has been deconstructed, but now without a lot of work. Lots of rusty screws, and the rivets through the paperboard were tough to remove. I plan to re-use some of the pieces, which are shown here, cleaned up by my husband. He even sanded and oiled the wooden knob for the top.

And, he cleaned up the base. This is really the best part, and the whole reason to go through such trouble. Old stuff is cooler than new. Usually. We are going to give the base a fresh coat of paint.

The other update on this project is a small breast augmentation. The original job was very lumpy, and I have read other people had the same problem. I took a small set of bikini top padded inserts, taped them on, and repapered over very carefully with small thin pieces. I think she's looking kind of fabulous. But, then again, I may be biased. :)
