I bought a styrofoam cutter and do all my own, in exactly the size I want. I can even do weird shapes in case I need appendages and stuff.

I'm not so sure about Dal. Foa. anymore. I ordered from there a few times and the last time they tacked on an extra $5.00 handling charge and $3.00 sales tax a couple of weeks after I had ordered without telling me. It was only $17.00 worth of dummies too.

Dallas Foam also charges a mint for shipping.

diamondsonblackvelvet13, Did you find their shipping to be very high?

Thanks for your tips. I just got my dummies in today from taylor foam. They shipped very fast and had just what I wanted. I bought a set of round, a set of hexagon and an extra single 9" round for $48.00 including shipping. Although my husband doesn't think that's good, I thought it was. I am ready to get started on some dummies.icon_smile.gif

I called local foam places until I found one that did cake dummies. I got like 9 different dummies for under 10.00 because I didn't have to pay shipping. They told me that they have a 20.00 minimum but I made them a quick cake using extra stuff I had on hand and promised it to them in exchange for ordering under 10.00$ You should call some local places before you pay shipping.

I had to phone my order because of a special item
and give my credit card #. I asked to have the order emailed to me and I want it 2 day air.
I probably won't see them till after I need them.

Can you tell me what kind of styrofoam cutter you have and where you bought it from?
