Illuminated Halloween skeleton!
I generally prefer to have my skirts covering my stocking tops and clips, but I really, REALLY want a pair of these. Where are they from?
Eventually we will have the skeletons of Dread Beastie and Tzepesh strung and posed. For now, their bones are in decorative coffins, and I say goodnight to them every night.

Eventually I will get Dread Beastie’s and Tzepesh’s skeletons articulated and mounted. For now, their bones are in their individual coffin boxes, and I tell them I love them every night.

::flailyhandsofGLEE:: This is GORGEOUS, and I wants it.
Alas, I do not have the D.I.Y. skills necessary to make this. But oh! How I want one. Decorative Skeleton Bone Table, via 365daysofhalloween:
Tools and Materials
•4 faux bone legs
•4 double-threaded screws
•Drill (with 1/2-inch bit)
•1 precut 1-inch-thick round or oval piece of wood (ours is 18-by-28-inch medium-density fiberboard)
•Double-threaded wood-screw studs, steel, 3/16” by 3”
•Wood putty and putty knife
•Paint to match the color of the bones
Decorative Bone Table How-To:
1.Trim the thigh bones: Use saw to cut legs to 1 inch less than the desired table height (to account for tabletop).
2.Stabilize the knees: Take 1 leg apart at the knee; unscrew the hardware, and remove the kneecap. Connect shin bone to thighbone with 1 double-threaded screw. Repeat with the remaining legs.
3.Stabilize the ankles: Position 1 foot so it rests flat on the floor, and generously squeeze epoxy into the hinge that makes the ankle flex. Repeat with remaining legs. Let dry and cure at least overnight.
4.Attach legs to the table: Decide where you want the legs, and drill pilot holes through tabletop. Place leg underneath pilot hole, then screw to attach. Repeat with remaining legs.
5.Put putty over screws, and let dry. Sand until smooth.
That is a clever design.
