"Dio de los Muertos" Stop Motion Puppet - 1

First stop motion puppet of the semester, a "Dio de los Muertos" lady skeleton.  The challenge is to make the skeleton of a puppet into a literal skeleton.  It's not meant to be cheesy.  The question is how to build a body out of a rigid material (or not) that rests directly on top of the armature without compromising either the wire or the material resting on it.  We'll see what happens.
Another challenge is to make a skeleton
voluptuous without being too fleshy.
The head will be slightly larger than depicted below.
Sculpting beginnings.
No spine yet!
