This dummy was actually very simple. All you need is a piece of wood in shape of a body. You could find this in any Hardware store. Then just drape a cape or something over it. Add hands and a head. I think our head was a blow up balloon. Then just add the ax to where the hands would be. As you can see the ax is balanced on the ground so it will not pull the gloves out. The chopped up body parts are easy but just take up a little more time. All they are, are wire bent in the form of the part you want. Then covered with paper mashie. Then painted. I hope this diagram will help you to understand better.
