Emperor Palpatine's Body Frame - Star Wars Return of the Jedi

Many people have asked me how did I make the body for my Emperor.

I made the shape or skeleton of the Empeor body out of 2" PVC pipe.

I took some heavy guage wire and made a rib cage.
I then wrapped the torso of the body in foam.

Note Shown - I also wrapped the legs from the knees up to the pelvis with foam and the arms from the elbows up to the shoulders with foam.
