    Like a manniquin ?

    Build a frame out of PVC pipe and fittings then build up with foam then shave down. tape up. Or yea u could fiberglass it.

    Or make a friend at the mall. Maintanice man would be the best. They have broke and chipped mannequins in a back room they will give away. I got three like this.
