I bought this paper mache skull at Michael's and hot glued sequins onto it, then glued the skull to a candle stick. It took me 23 hours. I used two sizes of sequins because I ended up not having enough to finish it with the large ones but it's awesome anyway. I finished the face in one eight hour sitting while watching an mtv count down and the biography channel.

I would have just used the sequins that come on a string, so I'm amazed that you put them on each individually.  Wowza!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Holy skulls!  It's amazing that you did all those sequins individually!  I think I might need a neck and shoulder rub just from reading about your 8-hour session.  This rocks and so do you!

Wow, that's the sort of tedious project that draws attention and looks beautiful because of its simplicity--simple and intricate at the same time. Great job! I love it!
