This'll have to be a bare bones intructable as the deadline is today and I want to publish in time for the mega contest. 

Backstory: I was invited to a costume party thrown by an expert in the art field.  I felt compelled to impress as I assumed this person's guests would all have distinguishing eyes for "fine art".

Be warned if you undertake this project, it is time consuming and can become expensive.  My budget came in somewhere around $150 or more.  I am afraid to add up the receipts.

The idea is to create a body cast.

Got it at a party supply store during the Halloween season.
ps pi is 3.14159 so if you round ten-thousanths place you have to round the 5 up to a 6.

Thanks. It is truncated, instead of rounded. It's a dorky math joke ;)
