Introduction: Pool Noodle Man
An armature to dress, move and shape. Waterproof. Save and use over and over. Feel free to improve on this design. Everything is a work in progress.
Step 1: Lets Begin
You will need 6 Pool Noodles and 1 dust pan from your Dollar Store. Medium gauge wire, something that will bend and a brick.
Step 2: Measurements
Pool Noodle Measurements
1 NOODLE = 3 SPINES EACH 15 INCHES.
1 NOODLE = COLLAR BONE AND UPPER ARMS EACH 15 INCHES.
1 NOODLE = PELVIS AND UPPER LEGS EACH 15 INCHES.
1 NOODLE = CUT IN HALF = 2 BOTTOM LEGS.
1 NOODLE = 2 LOWER ARMS EACH 12 INCHES AND 1 NECK/HEAD 12 INCHES.
1 NOODLE = 2 HANDS AND 2 FEET ABOUT 5 INCHES EACH.
Step 3: Step 1
Measure half way across the Pelvis section and poke a hole through the noodle.Make an X with your knife on both sides and push through the PELVIS
Step 4: Step 2
Side Spine over dustpan handle.
Step 5: Step 3
Measure half way across Collar Bone section and cut Hole.
Step 6: Step 4
Thread wire through upper and lower leg. Poke hole with wire through Pelvis. Repeat.
The two wires should be about 90 inches long.
Step 7: Step 5
Pierce the Pelvis and bring wire from leg thru the wire thru the hole in noodle and attach the remaining spines to the Collar Bone.Pierce noodle and pull thru.
Step 8: Step 6
Add Upper Arms by running one long piece of wire through Noodle Holes.
Wire should be long enough on both sides to attach lower arms.

Slide Head/Neck over the Dustpan Handle and add Hands and Feet.
An armature to dress, move and shape. Waterproof.
Save and use over and over. But wait...there is more....
Note: if you bend the wire over at the end it is easier to slide through noodles.
Step 11: Add the Brick
Add the Brick for more stability.
Step 12: Extras
Take a plastic milk gallon jug...rinse clean and cut a hole to fit the noodle. Fit jug over head for a base.
