Hello! Anyone know a decent source for a bunch of half skulls. You know, the sort missing their lower jaw? They always convey that sense that the skull has sat around for a while. An online source I'm fond of ordering from had some for under $5-a-pop, but ran out. Attached is a pic to give a better idea of the "look" I'm after (minus the eye socket glow). Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide, fellow fright fans.

I know of three places that I've gotten them from:
https://www.dappercadaver.com/products/budget-skull-cranium - $29.00
skullshoppe.com/economical-skulls.php - SOLD OUT (also very expensive)
http://www.shipwreckproductions.com/catalog/props.html - $20.00

My personal favorites are Ship Wreck Productions, they need the least amount of work to make them fit in with the old graveyard theme of my yard.


Many thanks for the speedy reply, and those look like quality product. I just can't plunk down that kind of cash at present. I wish I knew someone with a 3-D copier right about now. :eek:

I understand, mney is always an issue, fortunately there's always other options, if you don't mind doing some work yourself, you can order these from e-bay: https://www.ebay.com/i/183431530547?chn=ps you'll have to cut the jaw off and paint them before use. Or you can make an Alibaba account (easy to do, I have one) and you can order these: https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Styrofoam-Skull-EPS-OEM-Service-V161_153501263.html?spm=a2700.7724857.normalList.74.3b3718d2WLsa57 Again you'll have to paint them yourself.

Check out Nightmare Makers. Dense foam, nice detail and the price is excellent. Several styles to choose from

Now those look a lot closer to my meager budget. I don't have an Alibaba account, but I really like theirs. It's especially amusing how they refer to them as Christmas decor. But yeah, a little light grey spray paint followed by some slightly darker greys/blacks for sockets and cheekbones and Ta-Da! Instant skull collection!

Thank you! Those are reasonably priced and being a bit heavier will stand a better chance of staying in the yard. Things could get weird(er) if my skulls suddenly found their way across the street onto neighbor's properties.

If you do order any of these, make sure you ask the size! Some of these suppliers do sell Christmas ornament size skulls, you could end up buying a bag full of 3 inch foam skulls.

I just want to make sure you get what you need, lol, ask me how I know about this! I ordered 4 bags, ended up with 4 bags of tiny skulls 1 week before Halloween 2017, I used them on my cemetery fence, got the ones I really needed for 2018.
