Day 28: Do you pick up roadkill?

No, we see a lot on the sides of highways. In NYC it’s pretty impossible to go back when there’s less people because “less people” never happens :/

Also, is it even legal here?

Day 27: Most infuriating bone problem?

When Bailey the cat steals your tiny skulls from the window and tries to eat them >_<

Also, bones falling apart during cleaning and having no clue where to start putting them back together.

Day 26: Do you have any plans to get a bone related job? Or taxidermy? Or something?

Nick says kind of, he’s thinking about it. He also wants to be a police officer.

Jess is trying to become a tattoo artist. She’ll probably be drawing plenty of skulls and bones!

Otherwise we are both happy keeping collecting as a hobby :)

Day 25: Do you name your skulls? Do you have a system to name them? Favorite name?

No.. not for any reason really, it’s just not something we ever thought to do.

Day 24: Do you do Tumblr trades?

We haven’t, but are definitely open to! We have 3 large buck skulls and not enough room to display all three, so one of those is up for trade if you see this and are interested :)

Day 23: Do you do crafty things with your bones?

Yes! We use them as references for drawing and painting all the time. We also like to get creative with how we display stuff and sometimes make them into more decorative pieces by adding different things :)

Day 22: Do you have an Etsy shop or something similar?

No, we don’t find enough things in large enough quantities.. We wind up keeping everything we find for this reason

Day 21: Best advice to new bone lovelies?

Wow we are behind!

The best advice is to go outside as much as possible and always keep your eyes open. Look very closely for bones because they are not always bright white! Don’t be upset if you don’t find anything every time it takes patience.

Day 20: How did you find the Vulture Culture? Were you surprised about how many there are?

After we found our first skull together we knew there had to be more to find near us. We looked all over the internet for tips on how to find things and best places to search. “Bone collecting” was a term that kept coming up and since Jess already had a tumblr she searched there and BAM. So many other people shared the same hobby as us, and were posting helpful information that we were able to use in our hunting.

We were not too surprised at the number though, bones are awesome! However we didn’t think they’d all be on Tumblr, we were thinking we’d find some type of forum site to join..
