    I don't have anything that so secret that I can't share.
    Most of it is learned from videos, books or information I picked up from here.
    My camera will do video ;D

    Thanks Bobbi, I always wanted to see how the short Y capes were used......Do you use one of those cape stretchers before putting it on or what kind of struggle is it to get it over the form?

    Re: could maybe help some beginners (part two-tweaking)

    I don't use any sort of stretcher. I have eneded up cutting the Y a little longer if I had trouble getting it over the head of the mannikin.
