Step 3: Insert Stiffy joke here

Using Stiffy can be messy, so set up your dummy in the bathtub or on a large drop cloth.

Straight Stiffy works, but I found it was cheaper to stretch it out with equal parts of water and white glue. Just glue and water may also do the trick if you can't get fabric stiffener in your local walmart or craft store.

Mix up your Stiffy and glue and apply it to the clothing with a paint brush. Thoroughly saturate the entire outfit.

While it is still wet, make sure you are happy with how the clothing is hanging on the dummy and then leave it to dry over night.
<p>This is super neat!</p>

Love it. I'm looking at it with an eye to haunted (outdoor decorations) house decs. For that I'd need pale grey, black eyelet or &quot;disintegrating&quot; garments.
<p>They looked pretty and festive with the rest of the decorations at Promdemonium, but if you picked clothes in more muted colours, these could easily become great haunted house props. </p><p>&lt;a <br>href=&quot;http://fcnsc.com/%d8%b4%d8%b1%d9%83%d8%a9-%d8%b4%d8%b1%d8%a7%d8%a1-%d8%a7%d8%ab%d8%a7%d8%ab-%d9%85%d8%b3%d8%aa%d8%b9%d9%85%d9%84-%d8%a8%d8%a7%d9%84%d8%b1%d9%8a%d8%a7%d8%b6/&quot;&gt;شراء اثاث مستعمل بالرياض&lt;/a&gt;</p><p>&lt;a <br>href=&quot;http://fcnsc.com/%d8%a7%d8%b1%d9%82%d8%a7%d9%85-%d8%a7%d9%84%d8%a7%d8%ab%d8%a7%d8%ab-%d8%a7%d9%84%d9%85%d8%b3%d8%aa%d8%b9%d9%85%d9%84-%d8%a8%d8%a7%d9%84%d8%b1%d9%8a%d8%a7%d8%b6/&quot;&gt;ارقام الاثاث المستعمل بالرياض&lt;/a&gt;</p><p>&lt;a <br>href=&quot;http://fcnsc.com/%d9%85%d8%ad%d9%84%d8%a7%d8%aa-%d8%b4%d8%b1%d8%a7%d8%a1-%d8%a7%d9%84%d8%a7%d8%ab%d8%a7%d8%ab-%d8%a7%d9%84%d9%85%d8%b3%d8%aa%d8%b9%d9%85%d9%84-%d8%a8%d8%a7%d9%84%d8%b1%d9%8a%d8%a7%d8%b6/&quot;&gt;محلات شراء الاثاث المستعمل <br>بالرياض&lt;/a&gt;</p><p>&lt;a </p>
I just love this entry. I was telling my friend in Seattle about your vintage idea and she requested the link. Great job, I was sure you were going to win! I am glad your jello shots did!
These are really cool, I voted for you, good luck!
Years ago i cut something similar out of a magazine because it looked so cool! It was a Hawaiian shirt with what i always thought were the bare wires of a large lampshade slightly molded into a torso perimter (good repurpose for old shades). The shirt shape was held entirely with the fabric stiffener. then the tall light like your setup. Another cool idea would be a sports team jersey - although the thickness might be tricky and require more internal support ( like chickenwire).<br><br>Great 'ible!<br>
Hey these are awesome, was thinking they would be great for Halloween. Ghosts, yeah kinda done. But... walking down a sidewalk, the invisible family! It would be like cheery Halloween comedy<br>
Nice! I love the the little blue dress. The yellow one is awesome creepy!
nice lamps! I like you can just change their clothes to set a different mood.
very 'Brothers Quay' . I love how clothes color and diffuse the lite .
I don't know about you guys, but if I saw floaty, glowing disembodied clothes in the shape of a person at night I would wet myself. Cool idea though.
When I had 8 of them hanging around our apartment before the big event, I'd sometimes get spooked at night because I'd forget they were there and then think there were people in my living room when I caught them out of the corner of my eye.<br> <br> It think it's all about context.<br> <br> They looked pretty and festive with the rest of the decorations at Promdemonium, but if you picked clothes in more muted colours, these could easily become great haunted house props.
