DIY Shrunken Head Tutorial from BradBlogSpeed. I really like this blog - all the tutorials are really detailed. The teeth are made out of polymer clay and the hair is from a doll.
Gorgeous Gothic Black Skull and Roses Fascinator from the Etsy Store of Talulabelles. This is not in stock in her store today, but I think it was priced at $60. The description reads:
totally outrageous gothic style fascinator perfect for the gothic ball or halloween dance, large sparkling black skull with roses, tulle petrol black feathers and grey organza scarf make this a truly head turning piece for those who dare to wear it.
all securely attached to a purple headband with combs sewn to sides to secure in place will also need a bobby pin or two
DIY Cosmetology Head Ghoulish Restyle Tutorial from Bascombe Mania. This is an extremely detailed tutorial of how to take a rubber/plastic head, insert a skull and come up with this scary creation. You could probably do this on rubber head dolls with Dollar Store smaller skulls.
$350 Leather Skull Bag from the Etsy Store of GriffinLeather. Description from the seller:
Hand formed leather skull clutch bag purse. The leather is formed and tempered to keep its shape. It also has fiberglass/resin enforcement where needed. Hand stitching finished off the borders where the 2 half’s meet. A magnetic clasp holds the skull together and it is lined with a dense felt.
This one has been dyed OX Blood. Please make sure you understand that it is NOT red. This version uses brass plated hardware with a leather straps. Other colors and versions will be available including red, natural leather and possibly a demon skull version.
The measurements are about 6 1/2 high, 7/12 front to back and 5 inches at its widest point. Very close to a full size human skull.
I must point this out. This is first and foremost a work of art. It will hold small items but I do not advise packing it like a regular purse.
