    diy dress form (with help from a friend)... the comments at the bottom have great ideas for the base, also they recommend using the brown paper tape that you have to wet instead of duct tape due to the residue duct tape leaves on pins. I've GOTTA do this!!

Use expanding foam from the hardware store to stuff the dress-form.That stuff hardens well enough you will never have to re-stuff it, but still ok with pins, etc. To lessen volume, first stuff with packing peanuts or crumpled newspaper.
