Unfortunately I haven't been able to find acrylic mirror tiles for sale, though they must exist somewhere. It's easy to find acrylic mirror sheets and I've made some of my own with a laser cutter, but as that requires access to a laser cutter I'd also love to include a link to acrylic tiles should you happen to find a supplier. One word of warning, acrylic tiles don't wear that well, they scratch more than real mirror and become dull. Amazingly my helmet only has a few cracked mirrors despite years of wear and tear. Acrylic is also not significantly lighter, which is why I explored it to start.

The answer to that is context dependent, but the first step is to make a sloper using your form if it fits everywhere else, then do a final fitting on your body to adjust for the bust if possible, or make the adjustment using flat pattern making techniques if fitting on the body won't work. Fitting on the body would be relatively easy for the princess seam example above, and your final pattern after adjusting for the bust would end up looking something like the image below (new pattern line in blue). However for a darted sloper it would be more difficult to fit on the body as adjusting for a smaller bust would require adding vs taking away material, so some flat pattern making techniques are going to be necessary to get a proper fit. This tutorial might have some useful info for the ...

Yay that's awesome! I like them curling inward actually, it's a different shape and they turned out great. Thanks for sharing!
Aah that's such a good idea!
Soooo fluffy :) Thanks!
Oh wow, I have used procion dyes a lot and didn't realize that you could set them without steaming. So you lay your fabric down on a sheet of plastic, then cover with more plastic when done? Thank you for sharing your expertise!
That sounds like a beautiful event! I'm glad I know about it now, thank you :)
Thanks! Hopefully I'll have time to create some more projects soon.
Thank you for sharing all these different methods side by side, this is really helpful!

Wow, this is a really interesting set of fabric articulation experiments. Thank you for posting such a well documented instructable! The motions could be used for so many effects!
This turned out really well! I like the effect a lot.
Sorry for the super late reply. The smaller holes are .36"x.43" and are arrayed around the center with the long way aligned towards the middle of the paw.
That turned out great! It's hard to tell in the photo but I can see the sparkle you're talking about, I really like the fibers on white. Thanks so much for sharing, and I'm glad you had fun wearing it in the festival circuit this summer!
This makes baking in the backcountry seem so much less intimidating. I'm getting inspired for my next trip - thank you!

Introduction to ArtCAM Standard
A really long time! But a lot of it was trial and error along the way for the structure, and figuring out the electronics and code as I'm a novice in that area. If I were to make it again now that the design is worked out, probably 20 hours? Most of the steps are pretty simple, but there are a lot of them and many involve waiting for things to dry, etc.
