Introduction: Headless Suzy, the Flash Drive Doll
First off, I have to acknowledge that the inspiration for this came from...
I laughed out loud for a solid minute when I saw that one.
Also, apologies for the lack of construction pics and crappy quality of the ones that I have. The girl took the good camera away with her (ok, so it is her camera), and the construction went so quickly I forgot to take even crappy pictures.

Step 1: Materials, Tools, And... Supplies!
You will need:
A USB flash drive - one with a snug fitting plug cap
An appropriate stuffed doll or animal - I got this one at a dollar store; floppy legs are good
tweezers or needlenose pliers
needle and thread
hot glue gun
Step 2: Doll Decapitation
The specifics will of course depend on your particular transplant patient, but the gist is, cut the stitches holding the doll's head on. Try not to disturb the seam on the back of the head or body. You will most likely need to re-sew these seams, but you don't want the doll to lose shape.
Step 3: Excavate the Carcass and Emplant Electronics.
Using the needlenose pliers, pull some stuffing out of the body a little at a time. Keep trying the flashdrive, wiggling it into the space created. Stop when it fits right up to the usb plug. Repeat the process for the plug cap. You will want to use a cap that fits snugly, and ideally one that clicks into the rectangular holes on the usb plug. I used an extra cap from a SanDisk Micro, and the head clicks on securely.
Once the drive and cap fit nicely, fire up the ol' hot glue gun. Drizzle glue into the coccoon for the drive (make sure to get some glue on the sides of the hole). Squish the drive into that nice gluey goodness. (You did line it up so the top of the drive is facing the doll's back, right?)
Repeat the process for gluing the cap into the head.
Step 4: Plug 'Er In!
This isn't disturbing, is it?
