Build-It-Yourself Laser-Cut Cardboard Human Skulls

Because real human skulls are expensive (I own two), these are the 'Vince' laser-cut cardboard human skulls. You put them together yourself, and cost $40 for a 2.5" version, and $100 for a 6" version. Just don't go using one in a potion that calls for a real skull or it's going to wind up backfiring. POTION RULE #1: NEVER SUB INGREDIENTS. You see this? "The place where your penis used to be?" Yep, I was mixing up an all-night boner tonic and tried using KFC Original Recipe instead of bat wings.

Keep going for the color options including ALTERNATING BLACK AND WHITE.

Thanks to David M, who agrees there's nothing quite like holding a human skull in your hand and looking through the holes were the eyes used to be.

    How do you get the template for this if you want to cut it yourself?

    I remember a while back seeing a homer simpson head like this but each layer was an individual jigsaw puzzle. So you had to figure out each layer and then stack them just right to make his head.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about or can direct me to it?

    I googled homer simpson 3d jigsaw and I found some of them:

    Nice and quite cheap but you have to paint it yourself after you finish assembling it.

    $100 for a 6" version? That's insane! These patterns can be made with free software from Autodesk (123D Make). A local sign company can laser cut the pattern on 40 cents worth of cardboard for you.

    Modeling a realistic 3D skull in 123D Make, 3DS Max, Solidworks, etc. would take the average person several hours. That's assuming that the average person even knows how to use the software.

    A master certified professional draftsman could knock out a nice model in 15 minutes, but most people with that level of skill can easily afford $100 for a silly gewgaw.
