I know, I know. Halloween is still a long way off but I just can't resist anything to do with skulls/death/headhunting/etc. Here are a few gems that I have found recently...
Left: Original Fake Skull Kiss T-shirt design
I love Nicki Minaj and her HUGE arse. But I love her even more when she puts on a Versace dress and tribal body paint to pose for V Magazine. You can check out the rest of the pics and the article here.
The Original Fake T-shirt must be last season, because I can't find it on the website anymore. I thought it was pretty rad.

The Dayak are a people from Borneo who were a headhunting culture. The skull here is a decorated trophy from such an outing. I drew this one and posted the pic in a previous blog.

This fella was a Dayak Chief, king of the headhunters. Check out his feathers; I dig his shield too. Good legs.
I did warn you that I was obsessed with Crystal Renn, and here's another image from the Feast editorial for French Vogue.
