I was considering giving him a Mohawk but changed my mind and decided to make a teeny leather aviator cap & goggles instead....like the photo below.

I applied some waxed ship rigging cord with CA to bones skull to simulate the sewn seams and chin straps on the aviator cap.......I'm using electrical tape to do the individual panels as it looks like polished leather to me.

Ya think? You figure the handsome devil needs a "SHINY" gold tooth for a little extra bling?

Being safety conscious and knowing this ride is going to be handful, Mr. Bones now has a skid lid. I can't get him to use the chin strap so it's just flapping in the breeze.
I'm posting large photos so I tossed a nickle in the pics give you a better grasp on the actual size of his head.

LOVE how you created Mr. Bones' helmet. Never would've thought of electrical tape as a faux leather.

This is great eye candy. Keep up the great work and I'm in for more progress!!

Jesse, I guess you could call me a dumpster diver of sorts....I will not buy anything I can fabricate from regular ol' house hold items.
I figure if it looks right.......it is!
Besides, times are tough & that leaves me a few coins for my 1:1 stuff.

Bart...what am I going to do with you........are you expecting me to put a squished dragon fly in his teeth? Or perhaps a smashed forehead fly?

You know if you added a couple hundred pounds and a pair of goggles, you might have a Dr. Cranky clone. :D
