My very resourceful older sister found this knock-off Barbie head for me for next to nothing at a yard sale.  Be gentle with her while scalping.

I think I’ve always been a little cynical about faux finishes (mostly the price) but this one really works well and I’ve had it for like 8 years.  Anyway below is the metal paint job, this could easily turn into some Steampunk fantasy if you wanna go that route.  Perhaps glue a cheap headband on this or some broken Beats.
