A look at the pillow I made for the 2nd playsuit for the Vanilla Gallery show. As with the f-suit, I ended up making the exact same pattern in cloth for the kneeling playsuit that I had used on the leather version. I had to really take care to mark all the pieces clearly - because they are very easy to mix up, especially early in the process.
This stack is from the toes to the front of the chest:
Sub-assembled top half and bottom half:
And, everything joined together:
I love the look of these forms, they just come alive even stuffed with polyester fiber!
On this one, I did end up putting a zipper on the back so they can add more fill at the gallery if necessary.
Here is the moment of truth: How far down will the vacuum-bag reduce the pillow? I started with the f-suit:
Damn, that was pretty awesome! It worked... The texture goes from being like a pillow, to being dense and semi-hard, like ice-cream. It's weird...
But after a few tries, I got both pillows down to size...
Two full-body sized pillow forms, shrunk down to fit into a 12 by 15 by 6-inch deep box. Awesome!
