Suggestions for body fabrication

I recently bought some foam for the body... I am struggling because my character (monster) is going to be plump. It seems as though the very core of the body should be a harder material than foam. I am planning on covering the exterior of the creature with felted wool. I am very interested in suggestions and or some video/photo tutorials.

Serious model making begins!

So after realizing the deadline we have decided we need to keep are heads down and get all the models made within a 6 day allocated period. Monday and Tuesday each week are animation work days.
