You can use that to make it more realistic looking too? Not going for pregnancy making it a little bit more flater than the shape of the pic? Could that work?I used a couple small cotton balls and a hemostat to give one of my phicen a little ponch. And the hole doesn't have to be that big.
I followed your “teddy bear” method and this is my 1/12 scale phicen! This was the first 1/12 scale phicen doll I ever got so she’s a couple years old and a bit worn down. I dyed her African-American and now she’s pregnant!
