since I already have a pvc maniqen from spider hill.
I want to use it for atmosfearsfx 3d form mode.
I need to bulk it out.

I hate working with chicken wire.

I was considering using a styrofoam head and something like this to add the body form.

didnt think I needed a full form since the bottom portion I thought would just drape naturally.

what are your thoughts?
anyone see any problems with this plan or better ideas?

that body form is hollow on the back. i still think it will be hard to bulk up.

im also looking for a cheap and easy way to bulk up prop figures. im curious as to what other people use.

Maybe you can use a couple of pillows to bulk up the back, use packing tape to keep in place, anyway it will be draped over

I use to use some of those mannequin torsos, but they were a pain to deal with. I use pillows for torsos and pool noodles for arms and legs.

When I use Spider Hill kits I drill 2 holes at the shoulders and 2 at the hips and use heavy wire bent to a kind of chest stomach contour and cover with tie wrapped window screen. Same for the butt if the back will show. Primitive but light and fairly sturdy.
