I'm really happy with how he turned out. I used cardboard to make tubes and wrapped then in cling film or plastic sheeting followed by packing tape. He's just a series of tubes really. Then I used plastic sheeting to make his suit. Their heads are both formed from Styrofoam mannequin heads. They have PVC skeletons that we slid over rebar anchored into the yard. Lots of wind last night and neither of them blew away!

Weeping angel. It was super quick. I think the man, start to finish, was three hours, including making the cardboard forms to shape him around. Clear plastic on clear tape is so forgiving. Just the hint of clothing detail makes a big difference. It's easier than you think :)

These look fantastic. Love the green lighting on them. I saw something similar to this and wish I could remember where and the link...but, an art student made some mannequins out of bubble wrap or packing tape and had them in various poses. She'd take them around the city of Chicago (I think I remember that correctly) and she'd leave them. People would come up and stare at them. Really really cool. Fantastic work Intellagirl!

So I'll ask the question no one has so far best to my knowledge...how much did it cost you in packing tape and how many rolls did you use? They look smashing by the way. I saw the Scotch 3M contest for tape creations several years back (think I started a thread on their contest here on HF) and was so blown away by what can be created. Your clothing on them just really beings them to life. The lighting is spot on. Just wow!
