How do you display your cowls?


First, Happy New Year to you all.
Apologies if this has been covered before, but how do you display your cowls?
I various versions - mainly from the films and a few from the comics.
I am determined to revamp the Bat-attic, starting with the cowl displays.
At this time they are on polystyrene heads stuck on wooden kitchen roll dispensers. Not very impressive looking as they show white in the eyes and mouth and the polystyrene heads are too small.
It will cost too much to buy the facial casts for each of the actors, so I am looking for a version that will have blank eyes and mouth to look a bit like [url][sign in to see URL]
(if the link works).
The display for the Keaton versions will need wide shoulders to support the full scallops.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Thanks

I always made stands from a dowel rod and a piece of wood and used a foam ball at the top. Putting a lack cloth over the ball before putting the cowl on it can pretty it up. How many cowls do you have to display? I might have something you can use. Then again not sure if it's worth shipping overseas.

Many thanks.
I used the equivalent of a dowel rod in a piece of wood by buying (what we use in the UK) to stand kitchen rolls on. As a quick fix I will cut the top off the polystyrene heads, to keep the dome shape at the top, and use a black cloth on the inside.
Long term I am looking for something that will stop the scallops etc from drooping.
I have 10 and I am looking around for a Batfleck version.
Shipping from USA to UK can be a costly pain!

Excellent idea, particularly if you have a lot of wall space but are short of shelf space!

I will have a look out for something similar.

But my question is: does it come in black?
