The Making of 'Skelvis'




www.smackhippie.com

Skelvis. As he was being painted, he was changed up a little. We decided to remove the forehead crucifix and use a music note instead. For one, the skull was taking on a greenish-blue personality. The note was a glittery blue color. So, it was perfect. Also, Elvis remains the King of Rock. So, it was only appropriate to keep his theme musical. The back of his head has the word 'trapped.' He displays the fifties pastel blue colored rose, a symbol of the era in which he ruled. The pastel blue color that is. 
He also has glittery eyes to commemorate his glitzy, Las Vegas persona.  I think the King would be proud of his skull. At the very least, it would garner a good laugh from him. Elvis was a prankster and prided himself on his great sense of humor and generous ways. We are glad to give back to his memory.

He inspired millions. He is imitated by the thousands. Personally, I love Elvis. I hope you enjoy this post and that it made you smile. After all, that is what the hippie skulls are all about.....

With that said, I thank you for reading. "Thank you very much :---)"
