I'm working on sth similar. I use box collider for each bone
bbox: At the begining they are bboxes for initial skeleton pos, then
I'm updating positions of colliders (according to bone positions)
when I need collision detection. But I'm still testing it so I can't
show you anything nice now ( I can only say that it looks that it should work:
I'm only displaing those boxes).
