A wire armature was fabricated using 1/8" aluminum wire with polycarbonate rib cage and pelvis tapped to allow rigging. Ports were added to the sides of the pelvis and ribcage, as well as a sitting rig was added at an angle to the pelvis to allow for a natural sitting pose. The armature was then registered in her plaster mold and the mold was injected with pigmented GI 1110 silicone.
