Character Research - Sumo Wrestler

Now knowing that i want my chef character to be Japanese and that i want to have him be very stereotypical in appearance to Japanese people, i have googled a few images of sumo wrestlers and it is exactly what i am looking for.

Obviously these are realistic images of sumo wrestlers, but for my character i want him to be very cartoon like, i still want to use the basic shape and build of the sumo wrestler but at the same time be very curved and cartoon character like.

To turn the sumo wrestler into a chef, im thinking he needs to be wearing some sort of apron or white uniform, maybe with blue and white striped. To truly make the character stereotypical his facial expressions always happy with raised cheeks, and a over exaggerated small chef hat tilted forward and to the side of his head.
