Yet another prop idea

Next year, I am going to have to go with a haunted carnival theme. I just thought of an awesome idea for a Spinning Wheel of Death. I would do the traditional side show, only in this act the knife thrower missed and hit the girl, leaving her life less body hanging from the wheel slowly spinning. I think I would do it with cleavers, and one hit her stomach, splitting her open and dome intestines spilling out. I need to figure out how to make a body out of latex and foam, because in this case the stuffed clothes wouldn't work. I can handle the mechanics, but the sculpting is a hangup.

I would love to do a lifecast mold, but I have no one to be a model. If someone had a mold that they are done with I would be willing to buy it and help them recover some of the cost. But other than that I'm probably going to have to save up and buy a mannequin to pull a mold from.
Thanks for the replies. If I could get a suitable volunteer I would go the packing tape dummy rout. Since she would be wearing a leotard/tights, it would look fine. I will look into sculpting foam bodies too.
