Maher Ventriloquist Body

I did a blog about what body I thought was best and I said Maher because of how they sit. I was asked if I could show the bottom board so you could see how it was made.

Here are a couple pictures for you. I did not remove the cloth legs but you can see how the cuts on the bottom board, for the legs, protrude forward and that is what the legs attach to. This make the figure sit perfect and will not fall forward.

A great idea and I don’t understand why more of the hard figure makers don’t do this.

    One of my figures is Lovik head/Maher body, and you’re right. She sits well. But it’s also the heaviest body among my vent family, which, combined with the Lovik head, makes her a very heavy old girl. Toting her about counts as my daily workout.

    I’ll certainly give it a try on current figure I am building.
