For my headless woman I put on an old tee shirt and had my husband make a make a mold of my upper body and half way down my arms with ducktape then we cut the tee shirt up the back to get it off meand then reaped over the cut back, I paper marche one layer and used gauze and mache over paperand let dry 24 hours I stuffed neck with paper mach also..making it bumpy(mache mixture 1 part flour and 3 parts waterboiled on stove about 3 min) made and h frame out of old wooden flag pole for frame to hold upper body on and into a backpack and ducktaped for further support. Once body dried I painted it with white and grey paints.I filled a set of long gloves with stuffing making sure to fill fingers too..
