DIY Steampunk Sky Pirate Gloves Tutorial from Kyphoscoliosis on Deviantart. This DIY started out as humble (and very cheap) Dollar General gardening gloves. At the link you can see what was added to the gardening gloves to totally transform them.
$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.
