(I made a few changes, hope you can see it better)

Ha! I was trying to talk myself out of it, but of course I read this challenge when it was first posted... kept on sayin' no... waited waited and waited, and here it is... the day before the last day and I decided to do it anyway. >.< 

The title suits me very well- considering the circumstances... and that's how I roll... last minute everything, not to mention the stuff I used to complete it- which are as follows:

-Left over sticks from a Father's Day project
-Numerous Paper Clips
-Left over magnetic strip (I have NO clue where it came from) to form the base
-A silver beaded chain
-Safety pins (oh yes... the thing I am well known for in my family- my mother (on several occassions) calls me "The Safety Pin Queen")
-Black fishnets
-3D paper stars/ Legal paper
-Blue X-Mas ribbon (for the bow)
-Aluminum (that's what Mr.Skully is made from)
-A Black sharpie for Mr.Skully's face

I don't know if you can REALLY see the detail... but the safety pins and skull of course form a skull and crossbones, the bottom safety pins are in a zig-zag design at the base, and the bigger safety pins aren't closed, so it forms a more spread out "crownish" look.

Hope y'all like it... I know I've seen some I absolutely adore.


And the completed Action Shot:

The pictures are really dark. Maybe you could try taking the pictures with a table lamp as lighting. It may brighten them up some. I would really love to see your creation, it sounds wonderful!

Wow that looks really cool as far as I can see.
I second the thought of taking clearer pictures though.
I'd like to see it better. ^_^

the color you chose for your text is very difficult to read : ( I tried really hard to read it.

I also would like clearer pictures if you can post them! It seems pretty cool though from what I can see
