Looking to buy skull and/or bat props you might want to part with. We need a bunch for this year's theme. specifically looking for the brown hanging bats sold by Spirit and Big Lots (a few years ago) I only ask that they be in decent shape with no holes, tears, etc.. Bat pictured here

.


As far as skulls, anything that looks fairly realistic, plastic or foam, full or half. Like the ones carried by Michaels each year.



Will consider other bat props if they look decent, jut don't want the little flimsy rubber ones on a string, etc.. Looking for hanging bats mainly. Thanks.
Let me know if you have anything you want to part with and a price.

I have a couple skulls that no longer serve my purpose.

The first, only pic I have is on the right here:



It's 2 piece, and looks really good, especially from a little distance as you can see. The teeth are completely useless for my purpose of making molds to make copies, though. I'm not entirely sure what it's made of, but it almost feels like ceramic/stoneware/something. Doesn't feel like resin.

The second...I don't have a pic of! But I have lots of pics of the copies of it...



It's from a soft plastic, and has been molded many times, so has some bits of clay still at the zygomatic arch. (the 'hole' at the side of the head) It's also developed a little flatish spot on it's right side. While only slightly noticeable, it makes it unsuitable to further copying, thus useless to me. Otherwise, very white and will need to be aged. I'll try to get a pic.

Here's a pic from a 2010 copy that shows the flat spot. (yes, I'm picky)

These would fit the bill. They'll be in a low light setting amongst (hopefully) many other skulls. What are you looking to get for them?

jdubbya, I just bought a skull mold from Nightmare Makers. You can make as many skulls as you want. The mold was $60 and the foam was $102 with shipping but it will make about 70 skulls. I can send you info if you would like.

Hiya JDub! I've got a butt-ton of Bucky skulls and a few bats left. Do you prefer 2-piece, 3-piece, or crystal?
Not crystal but may be interested in the others. Do you have any pics of the skulls/bats? Price?

I actualy bought several unfinished skulls from them and am very happy with them. I'm thinking about getting the mold too. Thanks though!

Still looking for bats if anyone has any they'd part with. Looking specifically for the one pictured or other nice hanging bats. Thanks!
