Duct Tape Dummy Tutorial by fenrirschild Duct Tape Dummy Tutorial by fenrirschild
This is the OFFICIAL Mordrude's Monsters DTD tutorial. This is how I would like all of the DTDs done by my commissioners.

YOU WILL NEED:

2 rolls of heavy duty duct tape, 55-60yds each.
3 heavy duty trash bags, preferably 3mil thickness. I used Husky Contractor Clean-up bags.
Strong scissors for cutting your bags and removing your person.

DO NOT SKIMP ON MATERIALS HERE, FOLKS.
The duct tape was about $11, and the whole box of bags was $16. We're talking about thousands of dollars worth of fursuit being built from this base, cutting $10 off the cost of materials isn't worth the potential for catastrophe!

Plan on taking up to three hours if you are doing this with one taper. These can be very hot and uncomfortable, stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if needed. More tapers means faster taping, but can also mean more chance for error.

PLEASE GO TO THE BATHROOM BEFORE STARTING!
Even if you don't think you need to go, try. Once you start, you're stuck in it until you're done!

No way, you really only need 2 rolls of duct tape? o-o I assumed it'd be like...10 or something crazy.

I am going to be making a full suit soon but was wondering.... What if you want a loose fitting suit ? I hate wearing tight clothes and having something so snug would be uncomfortable.

Also how do you cut the fur out from it ?

Would it be easy enough to just buy a tshirt and trousers and use them as a fur pattern ? or would that just fail miserably ? lol

People who do the toony/loose style bodysuits generally get a jumpsuit pattern from McCalls, and work from that. I think those are ugly and totally inappropriate for realism, so I really can't help you there, but this isn't really a bodysuit pattern anyway, it's just the dummy to help you make the pattern from.
