Default Half a character

Okay, so I have half a character not quite done in Subdivs, but I was wondering when I do finish it, how to get the whole character? Namely, do I just convert it to poly and then merge the verteses down the middle of the character? And then that's it? I'm done?

Or is there a better way?

Thanks everyone for putting up with my silly questions. -salute-

I first create really rough charcter then I delete half of the character, use the snap option and duplicate that half with instance option enabled.
After I'm satisfied I delete half of char, use sanp option again and then I use duplicate geometry under the Polygons menu.
That's the easiest way to do it for me.
However if you are working with subdivision surfaces you should convert them to polygons to use technique(s) explained above!
cheers
