a fetish video in itself...

thanks to Arseniy for pointing me towards Taiz who make a life cast system for high volume casting for actors and for medical use.  

the site explains:

TAIZ Design’s patent pending Life Cast Systems™ process captures the subtle nuances of the face and its expression in 3D form with unprecedented comfort, speed and accuracy. The facial imprint is created in 20 seconds, recording micro detail of the skin’s pores, muscle tone and tiny wrinkles, as well as the features inside the mouth when open.

Life Cast Systems eliminates the mess, the 45-minute sitting time and the uncomfortable weight of traditional life-casting techniques. The process captures gestures held for only a moment, in essence creating a 3D snapshot. Elegantly designed for a variety of settings, the service and system can cast up to 12 people per hour.

you must go to their webage to see the video!

It would be interesting if they had a body cast system as well...

Interesting. Unlike previous lifecasting, this one doesn't look particularly like you have to vaseline down all the affected areas to ensure stuff doesn't stick, etc.

That said, they REALLY should have made the video a few moments longer. As it stands right now, it practically looks like a snuff film to the uninitiated -- encase the poor woman's head completely in liquid plaster, then remove the breathing tubes and... well, wait, that's where it ends...?

Ah well. Still, pretty interesting. I suspect the stuff they are using isn't cheap, but yeah, I imagine they could set a system up to do bodycasting as well. That may be in the works for a later deal (I could easily see where SFX companies and such would leap at such an item) once they get enough operating capital with the smaller face-only setup.

Either way, somewhere out there, I can see a fetish story almost writing itself even now...

Wow, that's really cool. Not for claustrophobes, I should think!

Oh, and anonymous: they're using alginate, not plaster.
