If your going to make a duct tape dummy, why would you need to make a life cast off of it, just fiberglass or hard coat it with something, thats what I would do anyway, if you life cast a duct tape dummy, your going to get a life cast of a duct tape dummy.

I've used the duct tape bodyforms and reinforced them with greatstuff also. If you do it for a full body, you'll definitely want to put together a basic PVC skeleton and put it in there and foam it into place so it stays rigid. Just remember if you build a heavy costume it could compress the foam. When I put my chainmail shirt onto mine eventually my dummy got scoliosis. Oops.
