"Best" will depend on many circumstances...like what you want the character to be, what pose he is in, and how much room you have for storage! Start with a solid wood base, and work up from there. I am currently making a groundskeeper for my cemetery using scrap 2x3s and a scrap piece of plywood so far. Plastic shopping bags for a little stuffing, etc.

His right arm will be out holding a lantern, so I'll probably use PVC to contruct the arms and make them hold a pose without being "squared" like lumber would be. When he'd done I can drill holes in the platform and stake him to the ground so he doesn't fall over!
