Planned for Ohayocon '10.
I'm trying to figure out what to do about the body shape. At first I thought of making it out of wire, padding that before adding fabric to the outside but I don't think I would be able to make it collapsable (my friend suggested I find a way to make it collapsable, for easy transport/getting in and out of). I want to have the entire body as a whole (legs/feet, arms/hands connected), with the head detachable so I can get in from the top. I figured on having clasps on the inside of the head that I can close (before slipping my arms through the sleeves) so it will stay in place.
Any suggestions on how I can make the body collapsable?
One of those circular, collapsable hampers comes to mind (actually thought of using one, but not sure how that would work out).
