I have been looking for some nice skull buttons and have been coming up short untill I came across these...

The place is out of Hong Kong and the buttons are like $.60 each and they give breaks on pricing for bulk orders of 25 pieces or more. for 60 buttons with shipping it was under $27.00

The have a nice selection of vintage style buttons as well.

Check 'em out if you need buttons

Okay, hope this works, trying to post pictures from my photobucket to here on my phone...we'll see if droid dose...

Okay, 1st things 1st, they are smaller then I thoiught they would be. I mean I checked the size, but they still seem smaller. I think they will be good for the sisters robes, but not so much for a commissar great coat.

Yeah, they do seem like they're a bit too small to be really noticable, but that could work out too, I know I like it when I look at something an keep finding details I didn't notice at first glance...

For a coat you could sand the backs and glue them to a larger silver button.

I think the smaller ones would be great on a women's under jacket- just use more of them- you could even double them up.

I used studs for mine, painted and glued to shank buttons (I'm cheap)

Well, I can get my hands on real WW2 german stuff (and replicas) for pretty much zilch since I live next to Belgium (I'm Dutch) where theres a 7 conference room big garage sale every other week (with 99% permanent booths), and I was figuring these things can easily be trimmed down and such to fit 40K.

I can get pretty much everything there, got me a Leather coat that drops to nearly my feet there for

Problem's are:

1. I don't know what I want to do yet.
2. There isn't much of on occasion to actually wear it.
3. I suck at sowing or generally being creative (this puts me in a pickle)

But reason 3 is actually the reason I want to try doing something creative.

Oh, and if i find any gems next time I'm there I'll give you guys a heads up.

Okay, but can you name the BBC TV show staring Simon Pegg, in which the line is said,in a similar  set up but the gender is changed?

"Clever boy...."

Hey gang,
I am happy to make some "button covers" for your costumes. I will make them in resin and you can epoxy them to the button base. That way the button is custom, but still sturdy. Just get me the size of the button and artwork for the design and I'll give it a go.
Cheers,
Brash
