I have been scheming and acquiring parts for this project for a few years and over the last few weeks, between being evacuated twice because of the local wildfire, I got to finally make it!







I used one and a half big embroidery hoops from the thrift store, a clearance + coupon candle stick (top removed), a circular plaque, a sale + gift certificate skull, 3 acrylic stains, beads & eyelets from stash, dowels from the junk store, & assorted new and stash hardware and tools.









If it will fit, we're going to use it as a prop in the book trailer that a friend of The ManFlesh is going to film this weekend for Dr Potter's Medicine Show!

[UPDATE: The craniometer made it into the book trailer! Just for a second, but a whole punch of the props, some of the sets, and the costume are my handiwork! WOO!

THANKS EVERYONE!

Nope! Just your standard hardware store 36" dowels cut to length, sharpened with a pencil sharpener, and doodahed at the other end.
