So here's a fun and Octoberiffic lil project pert near anyone with even the slightest of Other Crafts skills can do...A skeleton coconut monkey!

This piece was made fer Pete's Monkeyskull Voodoo Lounge, a comfy and creepy home basement bar where Tiki and Gothic live happily side by side. It was host gift fer the generous proprietor, Monkeyskull.

Basically, take yer standard Philippine carved Hawaiian souvenir coconut monkey, give it a coat of flat white (rattle can or brush), then add the right kinda bits with a brush and some black paint. This one was hit with an agin' effects paint (Ralph Lauren's "smoke"...Check Home Depot) fer that been-sittin-around-here-fer-years look.

Do that and, as yuh can see in these excellent pics by Monkeyskull, here yuh are:

Woof, that rocks, and besides, Emperor Hiro hito the original monkey model, looks much more like the skeleton now. Great idea!

And yours is NOT crappy! It probably was before you fixed it.

Just didn't want to be misunderstood..

SO COOL WOOFMUTT!

I am a HUGE COCONUT MONKEY 'nut', and I love what you have done with this little guy!

So creative!

Any monkey would be pleased to have such an awesome costume for Halloween!

Nice job. : )

I am an illustrator, deeply immersed in 'The Coconut Monkey Project'. I have been collecting wayward coconut monkeys for years, and have just started painting and documenting my collection. I would love to do a cool painting of your skeleton monkey. Let's talk!
