DIY Googly Eye Skull. Photo Left: From Skull-A-Day here. At a higher resolution, this is amazing (and the one minus the googly eyes in the eye sockets is actually scary). Photo Right: Alexander McQueen skull to use as reference or as a template found at Outsapop here. I have posted three other googly eye projects. I mean a large pack of these are $1 and now they have different colored ones!

Not only is this the perfect combination of adorable and creepy, but this show is actually in my area! Going to have to check it out. :D
So jealous. And you are so right about it being both adorable and creepy - because this Day of the Dead stuff usually seriously scares me.
