Patterns and Templates
Here’s our collection of how to make body forms and how to make patterns and templates for your props and costumes. Body forms can be made from simple materials like duct tape or sturdy materials like plaster. You can even make affordable molds from Alginate and cast a solid Hydrocal piece that will be your exact body part size. We design our templates and blueprints in the free vector graphics program Inkscape.
