Creating a Full-Body Mold/Cast of an Actor

I need to create a full size, full-body model of my lead actor that is hollow, so that it can be filled with light and then various pieces of it stripped away to let the light shine out. Can anyone point me toward finding out how to do this? Do I use latex, or is there some other faster/cheaper way to go? I unfortunately have no money for an FX artist on this short and will have to do it myself.
