    So I spotted this skull-mask at Walgreen's back in October and knew immediately what I wanted to do with it......and after it sat-around for a few weeks & I stared at it long-enough, I got to work on it. Scuplted new eyebrows from foil & spackle, Dremmeled-out the nasal-cavity. Formed his cloak out of an old pair of jeans & Flex-Sealed it for rigidity & "stapled" it in a couple of places to look worn & aged......Ground-out the old jaw-rivets & put new ones in for stronger-tension & painted the face & finished it off with a light black-wash. There's a flat-black backing-plate behind the face to stabilize the entire piece, and a single hook mounted on the back to hang it on the wall. The possibilities were endless for detail with this thing, but I had to come to a stopping-point & keep it simple for all practicality... :cool:

    "Have you any idea to whom you speak? I am Skeletor, Overlord of Evil!"

    Simply exceptional.

    Looks fantastic!

    What paint did you use for the jeans to cloak?

    It's awesome. As I said on FB, you're doing some of your best work lately with Laserbeak, the Fish-bus and this.

    I like it.

    But I can't help think Skeletor now owns and occasionally wears a pair of Daisy Dukes.

    Thanks, I knew the potential it had as soon as I saw it! I never got into the newer MOTU-series, the timeless-nostalgia from the original early-80s series always stuck with me.

    Thanks, this was a fun little side-quest!

    Thank ya!

    :lol :buttrock  This mask was the perfect-base for this, thanks!

    :cool: :rock 

    Thanks for checkin it out, I really enjoy exploring this character & different-genre for a change!

    Much appreciated! -And he definitely has an eery, imposing-presence when you walk-in the room and he's hangin' on the wall, it just pops! Gave me the chills a few times when I stepped-back and look at it after it's completion actually, I just couldn't stop staring at it, strange...... :eek: 


    Thanks man! I started-out with a light-coat of Flex-Seal on both sides of the denim first to reinforce it enough for rigidity & actually some poseability to some degree, stuff is pretty bad-ass, made the denim feel like leather! I coated it just enough to strengthen it without losing the cloth-like texture of the denim, then I just went over it randomly with Rustoleum-purple in a spray-can, then finally a satin-clear to bring the shine down a bit. :cool: 

    Indeed! I was very pleased with the outcome of this. :cool: 

    Thanks again bro, I've been tryin to have a little more fun with stuff like this lately after struggling with other stuff I did last-year! As much as I loved the outcome of the Fish-Bus, I really struggled with that one for a while considering the involvement in it & was hard to stay motivated at times when it seemed never-ending, and it's easy to lose-sight of actually enjoying the journey & keeping that objective in the mind's-eye in-sight on the way.....So after I finally got that one finished & accomplished, it was like the floodgates opened-up & I was able to able to branch-out again on other stuff I've been achin' to tackle for quite some time. SO many ideas & things I wanna build & create, so little time & energy in the day.....but I'm working on making all that happen & turn it into a reality, tired of just day-dreamin about stuff.

    Glad you like! :lol :rock

    "Ahh yes, your days are numbered now He-man!"

    i think skeletor is such an underrated villain. How could you not be terrified of a dude with a skull for a head? I love this. you know what would be bad ass? if you got a skeleton hand and made a scepter (or at least the top of it from the hand up) and had it like his head and hand was coming out of the wall.
