very cheap looking
I got this skull hoping to use it in a Halloween scene. It is extremely light weight and terrible quality. It should have been $2. I didn't send it back because I hate dealing with returns. It's made of compressed Styrofoam. The little round balls of Styrofoam. Awful!

I bought two of these skulls for a "shrine" project where we needed to decorate skulls with cloth and gems to replicate medieval saint shrines. I was having a hard time finding realistic, adult sized skulls that could be decorated easily and these seemed like they would fit the bill.
When they arrived, they were indeed human sized (about the size of my head) and lightweight foam, which fit my needs fine. The main problem was that the plastic wrap they were sealed in peeled a decent chunk of the paint off the foam when they were unwrapped. Since I am covering mine, this isn't a problem, but it would have been bad if I needed them unadorned for Halloween decorations.
Considering I discovered nearly identical skulls for slightly cheaper at Michael's a week later (d'oh!) with a few variations in color/style, it is a good thing these will be covered and I had a free shipping deal. They did arrive in a relatively quick fashion though, so that was at least something.
