Just took a quick photo to show you what I achieved with chicken wire, newspaper pulp etc. The hair is very stylised and I can't sculpt for toffee so I've never been happy with the face.

She is really impressive! And I can see what Aubreay meant about her bosom...

Now that is a mighty fine looking Figurehead Mr Cooper. Thanks for posting the photo.

I've been googling and alot of old figureheads are pretty crudely carved and painted, which could do me a favour really, as I'm thinking olde worlde looking ATM rather than Steampunk, but things could change......

You could use mesh tubes and paper mache over each tube and then arrange the wet tubes as a wig. You should have lots of time before they set too much to move.   The result would be very light weight.  
Messy process though.

I may have a cunning plan, those mesh tubes could come in very handy, thanks for the link.
