1: How should I model that skirt (ie: dynamics or simcloth being used)?
That is a very good question. She will be dancing with TWO Scarecrow. But I see the skirt as being relatively rigid. So I'd say model the skirt so we can add dynamics on it but not simcloth. I'd like to have feedback from anybody who have experience with a similar situation.
2: Should I model lips or will they be "painted" on later?
Very simple lips. Almost just the edges of the mouth opening. No pulpous lips.
3: Should I make a hinged mouth (like a ventriliquist doll), or just a regular mouth?
4: Should I make ball jounts for the fingers of the hands, or will the look like regular hands except made of wood?
Regular hands made of wood. We will not see her hands in close-ups. Painting the hinges with bump maps should do the job if we need those details.
