Good skulls!

men and women of the imperium, i impeach you!
doth thou lovest the emperor like thine own father, doth thou proudly display the mortality of mankind in the most holiest of-  
ok i can't keep that up all the way!
how much trouble do you have finding your skulls to stick on your costumes? from tiny little ones to servo skull sized ones? i've always found finding the perfect skull an interesting trial, sometimes i find them of the size i need very easily, and other times, all i find are crummy cartoony ones.
the issue is that i really enjoy the evil looking ones, the ones that look like they have heavy set eyebrows glaring at you.

i've joked with a few like minded friends that it feels like some fine wine connoisseur when we go about the Halloween stores looking for skulls, often finding only a couple of usable ones.  

so yeah, do you guys care about your skull choice? or do you really scour places for them?

Of course Halloween has been fantastic for skulls but I had no luck finding a life size one. 5 shops and they all seemed to be far to big or a little bit to small. Still I just imagine my servo skull came from a teenager [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Polystyrene seems to be the material of choice round my way, what else have people found?

I haven't found a single usable skull yet. I scoured Spirit Halloween, Michael's, Jo-Anns, and the Halloween sections at both Target and Wal-Mart in early October. Nothing! I think I'm going to look on Etsy to see if I can find anything, although their search function sucks.

I have stocked up on skulls every year for many many years. Some years are better than others. Last year was really good, this one not so much.

For use in my next generation servo skull i am choosing a discount medical skull like the ones in this link http://www.nextag.com/plastic-skull/shop-html
for the styrene ones i would check out Halloween Depot's web page. they usually have decent ones.

One that I'm looking at using, and might cause a few odd stares.  Is a skull that people usually put in aquariums, granted it looks like a kid's skull.

But for all they know the kid might have been a heretic who tried escaping the Emperor's Justice.
