This is a great little technique for making very realistic Cranefly / Daddy long legs bodies.
For just a few Euro you can get one of these simple extended body tools (link below) and with the material from just one vinyl glove make hundreds of bodies.
It takes a little practice, but once mastered you will be churning them out. When made correctly, they are filled with air and float like a cork.
