False-Bottomed Wheelchair – Inside Amy Schumer

I modified a wheelchair for a skit on Amy Schumer’s show. The actress needed to fit her legs into a box below the seat and have false skinny legs hinged onto her lap. The box below the seat is made from painted plywood and padding, and the legs are latex-skinned foam with “bones” made from wooden dowels. This was tricky to build because the actress (Booker Garrett) was much more tall than I was expecting!
