Topsy turvy Star Wars doll

Ever seen those topsy turvy dolls that are heads on either end, with a long dress to cover up the fact that they have no feet? They are usually day time doll on one side and sleepy, ready for bed doll on the other. It occurred to me that Darth Vader's cloak would work in the same way as a doll's dress in this instance, as would a Jedi robe.
I originally wanted to make it Vader on one end and Anakin on the other. But how on earth do you make something look obviously like Anakin Skywalker when rending in fleece? He has no distinguising features other than his teenage bratishness. So instead, I made the flip side the other side of the force, personified by Yoda.

Obviously this can be classed in the very rough first draft pile, if I was to do it again I think I now know how to make their cloaks more cloaky and less ball gowny. But I still think it is cute. Here's how it works, if it isn't clear. Also, to give you an idea of the size.
