When I was looking through my skull bookmark folder I found a bookmark labelled ‘Scorpion Sculpture’. As this was old I totally forgot what it was and thought I was going to find some macabre mass of dead scorpions. I was surprised to find that it was actually Scorpion from Mortal Kombat! MK was one of the first movies that I can remember seeing that used CGI for that weird snake rope shit that came out of his hand.
This skull headed figurine was found on Deviant artists ‘Skull Designs’ account and is actually an array of assembled parts. The skull was found in an art store, the body is a Gene Simmons toy figure (also hand painted) and hand made clothes. The end product is pretty damn cool.
Following on from our Halloween Skull Mask Ideas comes, yes you guessed it, Halloween Skull Face Paint Ideas! I’m writing this before I actually start looking but I’m guessing the majority of designs I find will be Day of the Dead themed and why not, they are awesome. Well not any of those I have tried to paint. So hopefully this list will inspire you to create some great ones this year. As we mentioned before these are only a speck of skull face paint ideas out there so feel free to add some links to more in the comments box.
The execution may be simple but the idea are pretty good. Check out Haw Haw James other designs as they are a little tricky on the eye.
Anything painted on your face that looks remotely like the amazing work of Sylvia Ji would be amazing.
One of our favourite websites at the moment is Street Anatomy, there are always amazing posts on the site and one that caught our eye recently was this one – French photographer’s Pauline Darley’s “She has waited too long.” which was shot for Ever Magazine.
The model is Clémentine Levy and her skull make up is so striking. In fact most girls need to start wearing make up like this because it is shit hot.
If you have ever played Modern Warfare 2 then you will be aware of a character called Ghost that wears an ominous skull mask / balaclava. Alright for a character in a game but some folk have the idea that it’s cool to wear in real combat situations. Ok, maybe that can be kinda cool but definitely not when you are called a ‘Peacekeeper’.
I actually quite fancy one the these, maybe sightly toned down, for cycling in the lovely London winter.
I’m not sure what kind of toys these are, as in their proper name. I have seen quite a few artists paint these little badboys in a variety of designs but these have to be some of the coolest skull-esque ones out there.
These wee guys are from the crazy mind of Hugh Rose.
I have seen many skull images made from body parts but I have to say this rates as one of the most impressive. This ensemble was photographed by Michel Dierickx and was found on Confessions of a cinematographer’s Flickr account.
Even if you don’t know the reference for this mask, as in the game Army of Two, you will probably still find it pretty damn wicked. For some reason it reminds me of Batman when he was purchasing material for his headgear.
This Army of Two skull mask, perfect for halloween, is made form ABS plastic and is only $17.95. I’m not into mask buying but that seems cheap to me. Though you might get shafted on shipping.
