    Some ideas...maybe nothing new or special

    - wrap the torso with some sheets of foam (not too thick). Then accentuate some forms with a sharpie maybe.

    - extend the arms a bit and fill the resulting gap between the arms and the torso with foam...this way you can achieve wider shoulders.

    - cut off the hands and make some cheap posable ones...a piece of wood, some wire and some plastic hoses will do the job. Add foam to the fingers in order to achieve the desired thickness.

    - cut the upper and the forearm where they join. Rejoin them with an existing or custom made ankle so the forearms are posable as well.

    Materials for this wouldn't cost a fortune.
