Much too nice for me to cut a hole in it as planned.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Satin Sleek Top Hat (black) Party Accessory (1 count)I recently bought a real (male) human skeleton from an auction house. This was not a Halloween purchase - I have just always wanted one and the time/price was right. Mr. Skeleton has not yet arrived; he's off for a professional cleaning and refurbishing on the way here. When he gets to his new home, I am going to have a party to welcome and name him.
So anyway, he hangs from a stand by a bolt and ring on the skull. I bought him a blue tie NEW SOLID ROYAL BLUE SATIN Mens Necktie Neck Tie , blue LED glasses Glofx Colored LED Glasses - Blue Led Glasses - For Rave Party - Durable High Quality and this hat for the occasion. (I also bought a bunch of glow sticks for the live guests 300 8" Premium Glow Stick Bracelets (10 Color Mixed Assortment) .) However, I will have to cut a hole in the hat so he can wear it.
The hat arrived. It is FAR too sturdy and just plain awesome to ruin! It's shiny, well made, and looks like it cost a lot more than it did! Unlike some other reviewers, no one in the house had a problem with it being too small. I suppose some other Amazon buyers must have larger brains than my family! My 13 yr old son tried it right on and asked if I'd order another for him, so I just gave this one to him. This morning he even wore it to school; it was a special "wear a hat" day for a fundraiser. Now I'm torn - buy another for Mr. Skeleton, or get something more worthy of having a hole cut in it.
If any of you have name ideas, leave me a comment. Today is 10/3/13...the party won't be for at least a month!

Sure did. back when I was in HS, my boyfriend's dad was a doctor. He could get stuff like that and I *really* wanted a human skull, but of course I didn't have the money. Now I work in health care so I'm even more interested (and also am of a somewhat morbid turn of mind!) When I married the first husband, he was freaked out by the idea of a skull in the house. :( Now I'm mid 40s and have a couple of $$, and husband of 8 yrs is NOT freaked out by the idea. Still, when I bought it at auction my husband thought I was nuts. After he though about it, he decided it was kinda cool.
My issue is that I bought it thru an auction house several states away only to discover that *no one would ship it b/c it's human remains*. Thought I'd have to drive there and back - stay overnight, lost a day of work, etc. Long story short, I am instead paying Skulls Unlimited (check out their site! http://www.skullsunlimited.com/ ) to do a refurbishment for about the same price a road trip would have cost, and S.U. has a FedEx agreement letting them ship human remains. So I still don't have him yet.
He's a white male from the early 20th century.
