Skeleton leaving the body prop

1390 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Nebulosity
I want to make an animated prop where the body opens up and it's skeleton pops out. I got the idea from a static display I saw on Pinterest. I am not sure what to use for the body. The one in the picture is made from a child size doll, but as far as I know they are not made any more, and the ones on eBay are too expensive for a prop. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for the replies. I will have to look for a head, that's a great idea. I want to get away from the flannel shirt/ jean bodies, I don't think they look all that good. I was thinking about making a paper mache body, or foam and latex. I just need a shape to start from. Has anyone ever made a duct tape dummy without a helper?
