So the model is pretty much finalized. There will be slight texture changes, and the hair will need to be done in post since it is driven by the rest of the model. The rig is also done, and is equipped with a fancy inverse foot, IK spine, shoulder/head/wrist locks, and a bunch of other features that should make animating the dance much less of a headache (it is more or less a modified version of the Package Man rig that is floating around the net - I've found it to be pretty robust and well-suited for detail-oriented animation).
The next post will likely be a prototype for the dance animation.
