[CONTEST] Win a Sourpuss Prize Pack of Skulls!

This contest is closed. Thanks to everyone that participated!

Established in the year 2000, Sourpuss Clothing specializes in creating an ever-growing selection of original apparel, accessories and housewares for everyone from tattooed punks to zombie pinups. Most recently, they have created a line of Dia de los Muertos-themed ceramic banks and bowls in both black and bone colorways. Each has been hand-painted and decaled, and each measures 36cm around. On Sourpussclothing.com, pieces are only sold individually, but on Skull-A-Day, we are offering 1 lucky winner both the black bank and bowl as a set.....A SECOND lucky contestant will be chosen to win a set of the bone-colored bank and bowl.



These banks and bowls are great. I've been fortunate enough to see them close up. The ones with top hats are the banks. There is a coin slot cleverly placed at the top of the hat. The bowl are the skulls with bows. There is a large opening at the top of the skull.

Banks are great places to store small precious things. Bowls are great for eating out of, or using to contain other items. To enter the contest, leave a comment saying what you would store in a skull bank, and use a skull bowl for. I'd store my fortunes from fortune cookies inside the skull bank. The fortunes normally have wise advice, which will fill up the empty skull nicely. I'd probably put some icecream and a brain cupcake in the skull bowl, so it looked like I was eating gooey brains from it. What ever your answer is, make sure to leave a comment below, to enter the contest.


[NOTE: If you are reading this on Facebook or Google+, be sure to leave your comment on the original Skull-A-Day.com post if you want to be actually entered in this contest.]


Don't forget to include a way to contact you (either an e-mail in the post OR make sure your Blogger profile has a working e-mail link for you on it). Entries are only valid with this information.


You have until just Midnight Eastern Time Wednesday, July 18th to enter so don't delay!


NOTE: Sourpuss Clothing will pay for the shipping to the winner. This includes internationally as well as in the USA.

Of course you don't need to wait till the end of the contest to get your own Sourpuss bank or bowl. Sourpuss Clothing's website is stocked full of amazing items to statisfy your creepy style needs. They are even offering a 10% discount for all our fans until the last day in August. Enter  SKULLADAY10 at checkout to get the discount.

When I was a little girl in the early 1970s, my dad made me a bank shaped like a skull. I called it Bernie. It broke in the 90s when an ex boyfriend threw it at the wall in our apartment. If I won, I would put my change in the bank just like I used to with Bernie. The bowl would catch stuff from my pockets at the end of the day.

I would store important momentos in the bank, such as little love letters, photos, ticket stubs etc from dates with my husband. I would use the bowl as a living room centerpiece to either hold Almond Rica's or our keys and such as I'm so horrible at losing mine. Would fit in real awesome with our horror/movie decor :)

I would store my holiday savings in my skull, putting it away for a rainy winter trip to the sunshine. I would use my bowl to store my other treasures, rings and bracelets worn during the day. Both would have pride of place on the dresser!

Alli Marrier said...

I love ANYTHING skulls...especially candy skulls! I would drop peices of paper with "things to do before I die" on them. I will let them collect and start randomly choosing them and doing them! One pf my biggest hobbies is baking...this dish would be a great addition to my kitchen. I would eat many things off of it. Ice cream cake, strawberry short cake, and my very favorite ZOMBIE cupcakes! These are chocolate cupcakes that are filled with RED ice cream so when you eat it the red ice cream melts and oozes out of it! We get very creative in my house! :) allisonmarrier@live.com

Becka Anderson said...

These would make a great birthday present for my daughter! -or- Maybe I'd keep the bowl and give her the bank!

Molly Wattanasintham said...

Love these!! In the bank I would store all my. Bad thoughts for the day. I write my thoughts down...and I rip out the bad thoughts and burn them at the end of the day so I'd have a clear head free of everything.
in the bowl I would put my kittens food cause sometimes they could use some brains.

WynterNocturne said...

I'd use the bank to save money for my next tattoo, and the bowl to store candy on the living room table. :)

ofemptymen said...

Hmmm.... I'd use the bank to start my & my husband's "moving to the coast" savings fund. The bowl would be my ice cream bowl. Give the phrase "brain freeze" a whole new meaning. :)

I would fill the bank with all the lost teeth from my kids over the years, I already have a small baggie of them & they're waiting for someplace awesome to live! I would keep it on top of my desk with all my other important, breakable things (A monopoly man shaped mug, A clown coffee cup...etc) For the bowl, i'd have to put it on my craft desk and store things inside like paper clips, thumb tacks or buttons! e-mail: Jesshamilton87@yahoo.com

Angie Gonzalez said...

I collect all sorts of piggy banks from places I've been to and original hand painted ones from my favorite tattoo artists. I like to store money in mine for tattoo funds. And the bowls are perfect for my earrings!! Email: g.angie86@gmail.com

i'm restoring a '51 chevy with help from a lot of friends. somehow everyone keeps losing their change all over my garage and driveway. right now i have it all in a bowl, but i'd put it in the bank, because i'm saving up all the lost change to throw a party for everyone who has been helping me, once the car is done! then i'd use it as a tattoo fund collection.

i had a skull bowl as a kid, and we have a brain shaped jell-o mold, so my mom used to make me pink jell-o in the mold for me to eat out of the skull bowl. when we got a new dishwasher, it melted the bowl and i've never been able to find another i like quite as much! these are killer, though!

Gothic Overlord said...

I'd use the bank/or the bowls for tips when me and my partner vend our goth wares (mostly jewelry)

Sydney Faulkner said...

I am about to turn 21 in October, and I would use the bank to collect any and all loose change from purchases throughout the day. People do this quite often, but I'm terrible with saving money, and wanting to go back to school, so I might slip a twenty in there every once in a while so I don't have to go hungry on my bad weeks!

I'm not sure what I would use the bowl for, but something really cool. I work in a music store, and would probably find a use for it there. And when people ask where I got such a cute thing, I'll tell them just how great Sourpuss is! ;)

Whoops! I forgot to leave my email bxtches_get_stitches@yahoo.com. As I said earlier, they would go GREAT with my skull collection. I LOVE skulls & have six tattooed on me! My grandma took me for my first one for xmas when I was 17 and it was a cute skull resembling these!

dolores said...

Hmmm...since we have a boy and a girl I think I would put them on the shelf next to their photos and put spare change in them and when we go visit or they come to visit they can have the change and we'd start over!:)

Jinx said...

I would love to use the bank as my daughter's first, and I can use the bowl for her barrettes !

VegasVaVoom said...

I would use the bank for my coin collection since they are always getting mixed up with other coins in the house.. and would deff use the bowl for my wedding rings, keys n such I need this in my life haha

foreverholding@yahoo.com

Sara Thompson said...

They would definetly join the other bits of decor on my bookshelf. I'd love to hid coins and other treasures in them. They'd go well with my skull shaped fizzies I'll be making soon.

Anita said...

jennifoofoo said...

Darn I iPhone, dorky=for my

Qweequeg said...

I would use the bank one to store toenail clippings in, since my last mason jar of them is almost full. I would use the bowl to store my glass eyeball in at night. I have to take it out when I sleep, and if I don't put it in something it sometimes it rolls under the bed and gets covered with dust from the Dustbunnies playing dodge ball with it all night. Most of the time I can sleep through it, but they can get pretty noisy.

Erika said...

I would use the bank in my baby's room... The start of his own raining day fund... And the bowl I would use to feed my lil baby boy in style... xoxox Wyatt's Ma

flyingbeader said...

Love them...perfect to hold my monsters in.

lisa aka b.creative said...

cute skullies! b.creative@live.se

Janet said...

I would use the bank for "American" coins, which I save for when I make trips to the states. I would use the bowl for candy - a skull full of candy sounds like a great idea. :)

Tessa Lyon said...

My little ones need a bank and the bowl would hold my phone while I sleep. such sweet skulls :)

That skull bank would be perfect to house all the spare change and donations for my husbands drum set fund. The bowl would definitely fit in my kitchen to be used for everything imaginable maybe flowers my daughter picks or even as an awesome little dip bowl!
BittBarbie@aol.com

Rakel said...

I think my husband would enjoy having these skulls at our home. He's more creative than I am, I'm not sure what would end up in them... guitar picks? paint brushes? pencils? twist ties? concert ticket stubs? I'd love to see what would evolve from the skulls' presence on our shelf. radiodivas@hotmail.com

ELIZABETH VALDES said...

in the bank would keep my rings with skulls and would eat my cereal bowl... xP.

Scott Schluter said...

Those look cool!

Michelle R. said...

I'd save pennies in the bank and hair ties in the bowl.

Carolyn Curtis said...

I have a sourpuss clutch that is always with me, I love the whimsical nature of their skulls and they would be a great addition to anyone's skull collection. wenchkin@gmail.com

chaosgirl said...

I think the bank would have to hold my Absenthe fund and the bowl could hold the sugar cubes! Oh how fun!
Cherrie.dittman@gmail.com

Unknown said...

I would use the bank to hold my rainy-day fun-time fund, and the bowl would be for candy! And both would go lovely in my skull-themed house!

Nancy Wilkinson said...

I'd keep the loose change that I save up all year for buying Halloween candy for our 300 trick-or-treaters in the skull and put the bowl on my desk with dog treats in it that I use to get my looney toon spaniels to quit barking out the window while I'm trying to work.

Unknown said...

the bowl would have to host all my little japanese candy snax i just can't do without, and the bank little slips of paper with my hopes and dreams to pull out on those days i need reminding. :) s.stefanovich@gmail.com

luvskulls said...

I would put coins of foreign places in the top hat skull, because everyone should be worldly in some manor right? I would eat red velvet cake out of the bowl, that seems fitting.

Angela Landskron said...

These Dia de los Muertos-themed banks and bowls by Sourpuss Clothing are wicked cute! The bank would be a great way to save loose change for personal rewards/trips/etc. I don't think my mornings would be complete now without a fabulous skull bowl to eat my cereal out of.

Mary White said...

I love,love,love sugar skulls. These are beautiful - they look so smooth & shiny, i wouldn't be able to stop touching them!
In the bowl, I would keep all of the unusual things that my cats have brought home for me. These would be: Pink sponge hair rollers, numerous coloured elastic hair-ties,plastic/rubber bangles & a leather choker necklace, which has a small enamel daisy on it. Goodness knows where my beautiful Indigo stole that from !
In the bank, i would keep all of my spare change so that I could save up for some proper cat toys & cheese flavoured treats!

Boot ~C said...

I love the way these look like cartoons~beautiful!

madeleine said...

I would use the bowl as a flower pot because I'd be too afraid of dropping it if I was to eat out of it and wash it all the time.
For the bank, it needs no re-purposing, change will do!

kaizenforlife said...

We collect all spare change and put it in a piggy bank for our 2 year old daughter. A skull bank would be so much cooler - especially since on the wall of her all-pink nursery, she has a framed pink cross-stitch that says "I liked skulls before they were cool." Also, in the skull bowl we would keep all her little treasures that she collects like pebbles and acorns. Hope we win! Love these! :)

kaizenforlife said...

Oops, sorry, should have left email above - lara@lara-mom.com. Thanks!

-mg- said...

ok, these are cute! I'm entering the contest, for sure.

Dr. M said...

That skull bank would be ever so useful for fortunes...right now I have them stacked and held with a bulldog clip. I'm stealing your idea! I'm a straight-up idea thief.
The bowl, would go on my desk and would be filled with my various usb drives (a bowl of accumulated knowledge).

gg said...

I want, I want, I want. I need, I need, I need

Unknown said...

I'd use a skull back for my spare change bail fund and a skull bowl to float a candle in. cin@riseup.net

Carrie Rahming said...

I love these!!!! wikkedvixxen@gmail.com

actarus machin said...

I'm an alcoholic who tries to stop drinking.. I'd use the bank to save the money I don't drink, to remind me that if I take the money out of it to drink, it can be very dangerous for me, as a Memento mori...
The bowl would probably contain my jewels and piercings... Or I could drink coffee out of it !
actarus.machin@gmail.com

Goddess said...

The bank would hold my change for my yearly gift giving on Halloween. And the bowl would sit on my coffee table with goodies for all my nieces and nephews when they come to visit me.

jazzafied said...

Every night before I fade off into a world of my own, I tend think of a goal or a wish I'd like to complete in the future. If I had the bank I'd use it to store these blurbs of slight consciousness until I come to a milestone during which I'll see if I am where I want to be in the world. With the bowl though, I'd use it to store my stash of sweets. n_n

jazzafied@gmail.com

smeltzeramy said...

I would use the bank as a bank to put change in (instead of the small pitcher I keep it in now and the bowl I would probably put flowers or toothpicks in or maybe those little crystal light packets. (I have those in a plastic gum container now. lol)

Mark Taylor said...

These are awesome !! I love anything to do with skulls... I could put my keys, coins and everything else in them.. They really are brilliant pieces of work...
markraytaylor@btinternet.com

LBabroski said...

The bank: pennies at work. they are currently everywhere and need a funky place to be kept. The bowl: broken jewelry charms on my dresser.

Divaeva said...

I would put my collection of skull rings and jewelry it he bowl when I wasn't wearing them... In the bank I would put positive motivating skully messages...Like *you are skulltastic*

witchymoonwoman said...

I would eat cereal out of the skull bowl. I would store something I felt like at the moment in the bank, and probably change it's primary use from time to time.

Rebecca G said...

I'd place thruppenny bits in the bank, and keep keys and mobile phone in the bowl.

MedicalArtMofo said...

Would totally replace our old coca cola bank for a skull bank!! Much more interesting!

Tori said...

These are amazing! I'd love to make a brain jello mold to put in the bowl....but would probably use it for eating ice cream since that's my favorite! Maybe I'll use strawberry syrup instead of chocolate syrup so it looks like blood! I would keep the bank on my desk so that i could look at it all the time and would probably use it for everyday tid-bits like change, paper clips, jewelry....kind of a catch-all! I love them! Wonderful creations :)

Adrienne Geyer said...

I would probably use the bank to store coins in it. My husband and i save up our change and then after a year or so, we cash it in and go on a shopping spree! I would probably put the bowl on my dresser to store fun bracelets in!
