making a wizard staff, opinions on this one?

Recommended Posts

While cleaning and prepping this wiz, I knocked off the top of his staff (which was kinda ugly anyway). Glued it back (CA and baking soda), no surprise, came off again. So something new is in order. I came up with this. At first I felt the skull was going to be too large, I'm okay with that. Now my concern is that it looks more, "headhunter-ish". I went to bed thinking a solid gold or chrome might "fix the cannibalistic" feel of it. Or I just go with the ever-popular (and a bit tired) crystal ball or gems. Opinions? The skull seems to "evil up' the character. I'm not partial as to his disposition, I/he could go evil or good,

I like it. 

I keep picturing a red + green Christmas scarf under the skull's 'neck'. 

A Dr Who scarf would be funny.

Skulls as evil is a cultural statement; many places see them as neutral- like the day of the dead ::D:

 

looks good to me.

For the sake of closure and my need to be here instead of sitting at my workbench, here's the staff in (to my best ability) NMM gold:

 - I thought the skull would be hard to paint, the "rod" part of the staff is what's being a pain!
