Make Your Own Joseph Merrick Body Pillow

Awesome process video for this Joseph Merrick body pillow– Andrew Salomone writes:

Joseph Merrick died in 1890, but he was better known as The Elephant Man because he had a rare condition that gradually disfigured his bones and skin. His head eventually became so heavy that he had to sleep sitting up, but when his body was found he was lying on a bed and the official cause of death was asphyxia from the weight of his head. Joseph Merrick never got to sleep in a bed with another person his entire adult life, so I made this body pillow to mimic the experience of cuddling him since that’s something he never got to do.
